|People can be so out of touch with reality. You know what a sign of a good breeder is? They actively work to keep all their puppies out of the shelter. Good breeders contribute little, if any to the shelter population. If they don't get all unwanted dogs returned to them per their contract, said dogs are usually pulled from shelters via the breed club's foster homes. A number of said breeders will even pull and foster purebreds from shelters that weren't even bred by them or their colleagues.
In fact, I may consider looking to a breed club rescue if I ever decide to get an adult purebred dog because they will know more than anyone else about properly placing the individual dog in the ideal home. From my experience, a lot of shelters in my area are out to get as many dogs out the door as possible, home compatibility be darned.
