you know for a fact that no purebreds get taken into shelters do you?
i happen to disagree.. having seen a purebred german shepard (yes, with papers) being bought in.. ive worked at the sanctuary for 6 years now, and ive seen a hellalot of dogs go through there. purebred means nothing to me, IMO, i would rather offer a loving home to an animal which has had a troubled past than pay out a huge sum of money for an animal with a bit of paper..
in general, from what ive seen, purebred dogs also seem to have alot more health issues than mixes..
my pup is a rescue, she came in at 6 weeks old..
a dog is a dog, no matter which pieces of paper it comes with.. you might as well make a dog which has been rescued happy and give it a second chance than pay out all that money for a piece of paper.
nothing wrong with rescues.....
