mutts are not better dogs. they interbred themselves and create problems for themselves, and they are ugly
pure breed dogs are fine, as long as you arent trying to create something crazy that has no purpose... in fact... cant even survive on its own.
of course, i have the best dog ever. he is a pure breed ukc purple ribbon american pitbull terrier named marley (before that stupid movie came
he is the sweetest, most behaved animal i have ever seen. he gets along great with all animals and people no matter of age. he is also, like most of
his kind, breed for CORRECTNESS, stamina, strength, agility (which is partly his curse).
people need to realize that if you get a genetically altered psycho-pup that there are going to be problems with your "creation" that you didnt
like labs with bad hips, or dalmations that go insane and attack owners (so interbred to get the spots they go insane), or those ugly little yip yap
dogs that have become so popular.
what i hate is that people who say that a mutt is better. i guess you think that it feels like it OWES you for taking it in, and that it in turn acts
i guess so, but thats like only helping abused children cus they would love you more than children with a family the whole time. kinda sick if you ask
i would also rather get something that i know what is in the blood, and who put it there. Yes of course i knew the breeders. what fool would buy a dog
without doing some background first. Only someone lazy would get a dog without checking on how they are taken care of. never get a dog from a flea
market and think its going to be fine without problems.
and what makes a dog, that you dont know the age, what blood that can give its personality, what has happened to that dog in the past. if it has any
problems mentally, automatically becomes better than a dog who you do know how old (i actually get to celebrate my dogs bday ON his actual bday
4/14/07), you do know what hes carrying (razor edge, og greyline, monster g) and I have been the only motivator in his life since 6.5 weeks old.
how does a mutt compare to that? you get the same companionship if not more from a pedigree, but you might as well forget all of that, SOME idiots out
there dont know how to breed dogs without their brains being cramped.
if the dog doesnt look like it can survive, THEN DONT BREED IT. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A TINY SHAKING SCARED POOP MACHINE THAT CANT EVEN STAND UP TO A
BREEZE IN THE WIND ANYWAYS??
even your abandoned mutt can be bread with purebreed neglicted animals. its a mutt... meaning you never had any control over it. too bad
