the akc is recognizing two new breeds this year. again, literally thousands of dogs were killed to get these breeds into the akc.
please, let’s also remember “reputable” dog breeders kill puppies that do not meet breed standards. papillons with floppy ears, dalmatians with too many spots, flat-coats with a white chest, toy breeds that are too big. many of these breeders use county animal services to euthanize the puppies. most breeders will not let imperfect puppies into the world, regardless of that puppies ability to reproduce. these same breeders will collect sperm from their dogs prior to chemotherapy treatments. these are very weird people.
how ridiculous is it that usually reasonable humans will spend several hundred dollars on a fancy mutt if one calls the dog a labradoodle or a puggle. the history of the these new mixed breeds is horrific.
the breed specific rescue organizations have a never ending supply of animals. nice, fabulous dogs people paid great sums of money for, then abandoned. i would guess one could get every american breed via a rescue.
dreams are lies, the dreaming is real
