Ok Ok OK BTW Mutts? Give me a freaking break, if it wasn't for the idiots who didn't spay or neuter their pets, these so called "mutts" wouldn't exist. And as for mixed breeds not being up to parr with purebreds, this is a line or crock, in most circumstances, purebreds are the ones with the defects, as they were inbred over and over again to develop the traits that they have. I own both purebreds, and "muts", and my german shepherd/lab mix, potty trained faster, is more gentle and intelligent than my purebreds. And ALSO, as for purebreds not being in the shelter, that is also incorrect, many many many of the animals left in the shelters are purebreds. People have to have "registered" animals or their not worth it. What a bunch of crap, those people are the ones who are not getting an animal for the right reasons. I totally understand where you are coming from. Unfortunately the shelters do kill some of these dogs, I hate it just as much as the next person, BUT WE ARE DOING IT TO OURSELVES by not having our loved ones fixed. That is why so many make it mandatory to have this done when the ones that are in there are adopted. Wanna solve the problem, adopt your next pet, AND SPAY OR NEUTER YOU ANIMALS!!!
