Just a lot of poo? Breedism in America

Some dogs I know say we live in a post-breedist society, breed doesn't matter, all dogs are equal. Well, read this . . . if this doesn't scare the dog poop out of you, I don't know what will.

Here are some choice quotes:

"Behind the hype and the clever name is a common mutt."

"Every mixed breed dog . . . is one of a kind because its genetic makeup is an unpredictable jumble of characteristics. No two are alike. Does this factor alone justify a high price, higher than what's charged by many reputable breeders of quality purebreds?"

"Don't be fooled by the whimsical names, the intriguing descriptions, and the high prices! It's just a lot of poo. "

This is how it started with the humans in Germany. They said no one was as good as the quality purebred German. Then look what happened. Dogs and sympathetic humans, take note and BEWARE. And while you're at it, be sure to email that 'Paula' (email link in the article) and let her know that her kind of breedist thinking is un-American.

Thank you so much Tommy for sharing that story with us. It frightened me greatly, and it is hard for me to imagine that such cruel people exist in the world. I can't even imagine how hurt you must have been when you were reading it. Paula is probobly just jealous, as she probobly wanted to buy a cockapoo from Autumn View Farm but arrived the day after you were bought, so there were no more left. Now she holds a grudge against all diverse-breeded dogs.

Listen mutt, your daddy got taken. The people at AVF laughed all the way to the bank.
