I think personally, from experience... that when a dog or cat gets pregnant so many times, it leads to health issues and possibly death. I know from experience, I have had a very special cat who passed away after her second liter, she was only 3 years old! Died when the babies were a week old, which left us to raise 5 kittens (3 survived). Anyways... to the topic. I'm not against peta in any way, because some of their stuff is actually very true and wakes a lot of us up and helps us realize what's raelly going on in the world with all of these billion dollar companies and how they are just making all this money from us, while they continue to kill innocent animals, so in no way am i against peta (i'm a very big animal lover!).. However, over breeding a dog is UNHEALTHY and NOT a pleasent life, imagine if you were a female dog, and you were constantly pregnant, constantly raising little puppies and having to deal with being seperated, it doesn't seem fun, and it's doing her no good. Dog shows are fun to watch, but if you think about it, the over breeding is wrong. However they are not completly accurate on their information, my dog is a full blooded beagle and we also have a half beagle, my full blooded beagle is a year older than the other, and she has NEVER been to the vet for a sickness, but my mixed breed went when she was a puppy for the common "parvo". So I'm torn, I don't know where I'm even going with this answer anymore lol. Well I guess I'm just saying peta is right, but the information from them is not accurate.
