Ok as a dog foster, I will be more than happy to tell you whats wrong with selling them in a parking lot. Come with me to one of the shelters I volunteer at see what happens to these dogs. Its irresponsible breeding, on top of negligent dog ownership, they have zero knowladge of who is taking these dogs, on top of the people buying them not knowing the parents health, or true temperment.

Maybe the puppies were being sold by someone with a dog that had puppies...that didn't happen to be pure bred? Temperment? You may see puppies at a reputable breeder a few times before deciding on a pup, not knowing their true temperment because the owner may have changed them to a new food (now they have cramps). Whatevs. You're right though, the unregulated puppies should go to the ASPCA, adopted by whomever because the ASPCA members are complacent, or by no one because the ASPCA members are too picky with new owners. Long story short, the unregulated puppies should be exterminated like the 10s of thousands of dogs that the ASPCA gases every year. Cuz, who the F wants a mutt? LOL...shelters.

Ok so clearly Im dealing with a teenager. I will use little words. Not all shelters are run by the ASPCA. REPUTABLE breeders breed for temperment and are licenced. Any dog of multiple breed, like you're new dog (clearly) is a "mutt" 25% of dogs in shelter are purebred They end up in shelter for a multitude of reasons, owner surrender, stray, raid, death of owner. My designer breed dog is a shelter dog, a hurricane Sandy dog to be exact. My foster is a purebred. Most shelters, such as the NYC ACC has to put down due to space. I never said they should have brought them to a shelter, but I do have a friend that is a breeder, they check out refrences, speak to vets, etc. So before you get mad, get educated. A responsible owner Doesnt sell dogs out of cars in parking lots. Again, I invite you to come to a shelter with me when I volunteer. While not all the people that bought a dog from them arent bad owners, I actually know for a fact that one will be a great owner, not all of them will be good, and where will those people be when the family thay bought the dog no longer wants the responsibility. No where!!!!! And that dog will end up in a shelter, in a race against the clock, and rescues will step in, and fosters, like me, will end up with the dog until a approved family is found. The dog will be vetted and fixed, the foster will bring them through basic obedience, and it will break their heart!!!!!! Every dumped dog that comes throughmy home takes with it a piece of my heart!!!! The rescues and shelters I work with do vet, refrence and home checks. So you can say "whatevs" you've never had to teach a throw away breeder that she is more than a puppy

Making machine I have and it sucks
Anne Steshoo February 06, 2014 at 07:58 AM
Emily is 100% CORRECT. A responsible breeder does not sell puppies from the back of a car. A responsible breeder does not sell puppies to places like Pik-a-Pup or pet stores. In short: a responsible breeder makes 100% sure that ALL of its puppies end up in good homes and ensures that they won't be further bred without permission. I own both a purebred and a mixed breed dog and both are rescue dogs. It's not about what you are breeding, it's about why. Unfortunately dogs have become a commodity like everything else in this country.
