  1. ‘Breeder’? I can think of other more appropriate labels. I cannot understand how any human being with a shred of compassion could allow something like this to go on. Even for money….
    I believe there is a great need for rescue groups to step up and take some of these dogs. They need grooming and socialization before being adopted into homes.
    Of course if people would adopt the dogs CURRENTLY in the shelter it would free up much needed space for these poor dogs. That isn’t as ‘glamorous’ perhaps, but truly needed.
