I am always for rescuing a dog. Both mine and Sean’s dog are rescues. I don’t think anyone in my family has ever bought a dog from a pet store…unless PetSmart was holding one of those “rescue days”. Every now and then, though, I like to pop into the stores to see what sweet, cute puppies are for sale. Unfortunately, if these little guys don’t sell, they’re going to end up in a shelter…or worse. So…with that in mind, aren’t you still kind of saving a dog’s life by buying it from the pet store? I know a shelter is better for the obvious reasons, but these pups need a home as much as the next dog. The main problem I see is that you’re supporting these pet stores and puppy mills by buying from here. Not to mention, they’re ridiculously expensive. This breed pictured (whatever it is, I have no idea) was $550, which for all I know could have been a real bargain.
In any case, these little guys are really cute and I hope that they as well as all the other dogs and puppies in shelters and pet stores find loving and permanent homes.
