    There are so many unwanted animals that need homes! With that being said I would rather adopt an animal from a rescue!

    I have a mutt and he's perfect in every way.
    Rescue is the way to go!
    There are rescues that are set up for some breeds also.

    Our dog is from a breeder, next time I get a pet of any kind, I'll go to the pound or something.

    Unless you need a dog for a special purpose, there's almost no real reason to go to a breeder. Especially with so many dogs in shelters.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.

    I agree! We just put our 12 year old Pit Bull to sleep a month ago, the hardest thing we've ever had to do - but at the same time we were able to rescue another Pit that same night. His previous owner was desperate to find him a new home, as she had lost hers, otherwise she was going to have to take him to the shelter the next day, and anyone living near Detroit knows what happens to Pits at the shelters. He is the happiest go lucky dog...and at a year old, he'll be with us for a long time.

    I fully support adopting dogs/cats. There are so so many out there that are in need of forever homes. You may not know their breeding or background all the time, but for a loyal animal that wants to please and love...you've saved a precious life.

    It depends

    If you need a dog that'll fulfil a certain purpose then getting one from a reputable breeder could be best. You can find good dogs at shelters but from my experience most are problematic.

    Responsible ownership is most important.

    The dog I rescued from being put down when he was 4 years old - he turned 13 yesterday. The best dog I've ever known.

    Our first dog we got him from a private person who couldn't keep it anymore. He was our big baby, but he past away. Our second dog which was its play partner for a while my sister found in a box near a thrash (!) It was a litter or pupies and she took them to a vet and they were all dead except this small pup. After it was nursed to health my sister couldn't keep it because she rents and the landlord doesn't want animals. So we took it and gave it a new home. It was much younger than our great Dane and when it died it was alone and sad. We mourned our dog and didn't want to replace him at first, but we also wanted to help another dog since we had the space and the possibility to give it a home. And we wanted a play partner for our other dog and another pet for our kids. So we went to the pound and requested the most miserable dog and they gave us an old dog nobody wanted and we took it home. The dog wasn't interested at first but now it's spolied and happy. So I say shelters, rescue centers and pounds come first, there are too many animals in need for a home.

    He passed away about a month after I wrote that post. He is still the best dog I have ever known.

    One of my husband's rescue dogs, a Dogue de Bordeaux, passed away only two weeks ago. She was very, very sweet and loyal. We are now looking for a new DDB girl and we're not sure whether to go for a puppy from a breeder or a rescue dog. This breed isn't very common and is hard to find at the rescues, especially since you want a certain personality and disposition that fits in with your family and other pets.

    If it was up to me I think I would go with a breeder and get a puppy, but it's generally much more work with a puppy than getting an adult dog. Obviously depending on the specific dog, a rescue can be pretty damaged and might need as much work as a puppy. It's a tough choice.
