it sucks, but it may be a reality they had to make tough choices about. if they were having trouble with those breeds - whether it was liability, or financing personality testing, or working extra to prevent dog fighters from adopting etc etc they may have found that there are expenses associated with those breeds they simply cannot bear. think about it - assuming what I say is true - just for discussions sake - if they used up all their money on these breeds and had to close their doors bc they couldn't pay the bills, wouldn't that be worse? I'm not saying this is certainly the case, but I think it's a strong possibility and just wanted to give you some food for thought.
at least they are up front about their policy so you can make the choice about whether that's something you are willing to do.
just remember, these places are usually working on a shoestring budget and can't bear too much extra.
