    Adopting from Breeders vs. Rescue Centers

    From where do you prefer to adopt pets?

    From breeders - you get certified purity, better health conditions.

    From rescue centers - you might not get any of the above, but you save an animal life.
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.

    The man I bought my Pit Bull from rescued her from another man that wanted to use her to "train" his fighting dogs.
    In other words, she would have been thrown into a cage and torn to pieces.
    I did not hesitate for a second.
    My German Shepherd is also a rescue.

    I've had both.............

    Over the last, nearly 15 years that we have had Dobermans, we first went to a regular Breeder. We got two males from the same litter, a black one and a red one. They were cropped & docked, ears cropped & tail docked.
    They were both wonderful pets, companions & watch dogs. They both passed on a few years ago.

    When the 1st one died, we heard about a Doberman Rescue, a few hours away.Their dogs are generally "Registered". They have several to choose from, of various ages, sexes, colors & styles, and all Dobermans. The younger dogs cost more. But at that much cheaper than a Breeder. They do have maintanence expenses.
    We drove down there, 2 1/2 hours, and brought back a youngish female,
    2 1/2 years old, docked but not cropped. We had full AKC papers on her, just like we did on the 2 males we got from the Breeder. She was with us for
    4 years and developed a heart condition. She passed in her sleep. One morning I woke and she was gone........It was a sad occasion.

    In a few months, we went back to the Doberman Rescue. This time we got an 8 month old Female, also with full AKC papers. She is a sweetheart and very smart. But she is an Alpha-female.She requires a master/mistress with a firm will. 2 years after we go her, our older red Male, developed heart problems. He lived a bit but eventually had to be put down because of his pain. He did have a good full life, though.

    The latest time we went to the Doberman Rescue, we brought home a 4 year old black Male. He's Cropped & docked & he's a beauty. He is well trained, a great companion, & friend. We have his AKC papers, as well.

    We have had very good luck with the Doberman Rescue we go to. They have checked us out to verify our rural location, our fenced area and how well we treat our dogs. Our Vet always loves our dogs, how well they are behaved and easily handled.
    I tink it all depends on the Breeder you go to, or the Rescue agency you find. Some are better than others.

    Buying from a breeder doesn't necessarily mean better health conditions. The first dog I ever had as a child was a Cocker Spaniel from a breeder who inbred the mother with her puppies and brothers with sisters. It was a mess. The dog was "100% purebred," but had the worst Cocker Spaniel traits you could find. We could not get that dog to stop submissive/excitement peeing no matter what we did. I think we finally wound up giving it to one of my mom's coworkers, who planned on keeping her on her farm.

    I know not all breeders are like this, but it just goes to show that just because a dog has "papers," doesn't mean you'll be getting a great dog. Personally, if I were to get another dog, I'd probably visit the local human society. Those are the animals that are in the most dire need of a home.

    While I myself am a dog breeder, I have from time to time adopted dogs.

    If you are going to buy from a breeder, insist on a clean bill of health!

    Also, If you are a first time dog owner, and even if you aren't you should do your home work. not every breed of dog is the same, like my breed the registered american pit bull terrier, these dogs require special knowledge to own, in my oppinion to many uneducated people want one of my dogs. I try my best to educate people about them, and I have from time to time refused to sell one of my dogs to some unscrupulous individuals. Because of this I do not produce very many dogs for sale. Instead I choose only to breed when I can improve the breed in some way.

    either way, breeder, or rescue, the important thing is to love the animal, care for the animal as if it were part of your family!

    oh, and if you are going to buy from a breeder, do your best to make sure that it is an ethical one. If not, report them!

    Our dog (I can hardly speak for it being "my" dog alone, it's technically "my mother's dog" and I don't live with my mother --- but for me, it's also my dog) is a pure-bred Bernese Mountain Dog. We've had him since he was a puppy, and we got him from the breeder, and we've all been happy ever since we have him (six years now).

    Here it was actually a bit of both worlds. He was from the onset the tallest of the four, but you know how the regulation about the pattern are, and his paws show a little "too much" white (above the ankles instead of just mid-paw), and so all the other three were quickly picked and no one wanted the "mis-drawn" one, but all of our family immediately knew it could be no other; an immediate feeling you can't relate to if you haven't been there yourself.

    Amazing dog he is, typically calm (except in thunderstorms, go figure ) - your typical "fluffy dog who wouldn't harm a fly" here, but very protective there; and when compared to the other dogs in the vicinity he's the undoubted "Alpha" dog: they all respect him despite his calm and well-meaning demeanor. He's a little too cuddly at times, but Hel, can't have everything.

    I could see myself taking in a dog from a rescue center, and could see myself make a good and followsome dog even out of an aggressive dog, what counts for humans counts for pets doubly: Friendly and affectionate at most times, but harsh and authoritative when push comes to shove, yet always fair.

    But the question for the breeder vs. rescue center is quite more than just choice or pity: The other issue to take into account is that of whether you have children or not - whilst you're unmarried and/or without children, you can take in any fresh dog that may yet have to be shown how to behave --- when you have children you should ideally make a point of buying from the breeder: It is here that you'll be able to verify the behaviour and health of his ancestral line, and that is paramount when it comes to having children and dogs.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I got my beagle from a breeder. My beagle is top of the line breed (15 inches and 30+ pounds). He has a lot of muscle and is one of the fastest dogs I've ever seen.
