I have three rescue dogs and it's the only way to go. Puppy mills exist because dogs are sold in pet shops and from unscrupulous people who keep the breeding dogs in pretty horrendous conditions.

I can proudly say for my entire life NOT ONE of our (at least 20) animals we've had in my lifetime have ever came from a store. Ever! (And I'm almost 30.)

I always adopt from a shelter. You get the same absolute lifelong love, but - as importantly - you're giivng an abused animal another chance.

All of my animals have been adopted, the most recent being a 10 - 11 year old senior girl from St. Louis's Stray Rescue, whose founder Randy Grim goes into the worst parts of the city and rescues stray dogs in horrific conditions.

our dog was purchased from a shelter and is beautiful. she has some habits that alot of people would not put up with, but after nearly 3 years she has improved alot. we love her to bits so what anyone else thinks does not matter.
