Except that private breeders are breeding large numbers of animals that are not needed.
Don't lump them all together like that. You are referring to what is commonly called 'puppy' mills or backyard breeders. Ironically some of the best most thought out animals come from small time breeders who have to put a lot of thought into which particular cross within the breed would produce an outstanding individual. Khemosabi, Secretariat, DD's Sundance legend.
I feel it's wrong to continually produce new animals simply because they are "rare" or "designer"
Are you brave enough to tell someone to adopt a child rather than have their own?
So you wish to punish all those businesses and those who want make a pet purchase based on a neighbor whose dog wanted to escape?
Did this dog use twitter, instant message, sms, or any other communications to signal is desire to escape?
If the neighbors' dog was a male, was there a female dog in the vicinity in heat?
Though some of my questions might be satirical, not all owners & businesses are malicious and pets are considered more than pets, they are treated like family.

I totally agree with you, I just wish my cats word afford me the same luxury. More often than not I feel like I'm being taken advantage of and I'm pretty sure they have the better end of this deal

Pet's like slaves are trained for a reason, that reason being the selfish desire of the owner to have something fit the mold that pleases the owner.
Your arguments are poorly thought out, and are entirely self serving ones, that consider only human rights over animal rights.
animal slaves i still don't get your logic....they should happy we don't eat them
