I wonder how many of these were adopted from rescue? I bet I can guess… The idea of “buying” a puppy is so bizarre. There are millions dying in shelters each year, and yet people still go out and buy puppies, whose parents are used as cash cows, nothing more. There are breed specific rescues too. You had your heart set on a cockaschnoododle? They have rescues for those too. They’re the rescues that were born after people like this got them as presents and then decided to toss them six weeks later.
