If all ethical breeders(breeding to preserve the line) stopped breeding then only byb puppies or puppymill puppies would exist. Would this not damage the bloodlines and lead to medical or mental issues in the breeds?
I didn't state they should be altered, but I do believe they can stop breeding for a period of a couple of years.
As for puppymills, that wasn't brought up, so I didn't mention them, I wish they could just be banned for this earth
Anywho, that was my opinion because my heart cries a tear for every pet who is homeless.
