Why is there so much hatred torwards the pet stores and “BYB’S”?
Question by Percy H: Why is there so much hatred torwards the pet stores and “BYB’S”?
Every time someone ask a question like, “Wheres a good pet store to by a dog?” They get dozens of answers to the affect “Don’t buy from a puppy mill, go to a shelter” or “don’t by from a BYB, buy from a shelter.” Aren’t the dogs that end up in a shelter FROM backyard breeders, or FROM puppy mills? So we are condemning dogs now because of where they are born? I don’t condone puppy mills nor do I condone people breeding dogs that have no idea what they are doing, but for so many people answering these questions claiming to be “pro dog” don’t you think its a little hypocritical to BE pro dog but against dogs from pet stores or puppy mills or back yard breeders?
This question was to get a general understanding of what other people thought of puppy mills, and backyard breeding. PLEASE don’t take me asking this question as a sign that I either support or condone either of these practices because I don’t.
Dog addict… Don’t you think these dogs deserve good homes though? Its a terrible business, bybing and puppy milling, but letting hundreds of dogs die just to prove how wrong it is to support puppy milling is wrong too.
Answer by Judgerz (has Rockband)
Puppy millers and BYBs will CONTINUE to breed dogs if you purchase from them. The money is cycled into more and more dogs. Instead, by rescuing one of their dogs that has been disowned, you save a life rather than support the vicious cycle.
