My PSA about "purebred" dogs! EDIT

You have no idea if that sweet hyper puppy you picked was parented by brother/sister or father/daughter or mother/son. Oh sure they are "akc certified" or whatever but come on. So many dog breeders will say anything to make their $1000+ sale.

You get that sweet puppy home only to find they are crazy hyper, you can't train them no matter how many classes you take them to, and it becomes to much for you to handle. Then you have to surrender them to an agency like the ASPCA where if they are too out of control, they have to be put down.

So please do you research before investing in a purebred dog. That is all.

🌅Edit I'm sorry for the tone of this post. I work for the pound and yesterday I had to see a beautiful Dalmatian be put down because of owners who couldn't handle her and some backyard breeder who lied to them to make a quick buck. It just broke my heart.

I am well aware mixed breeds can have issues but in my experience the worst are purebred who have been inbreeded. It's just my experience however.

My point is please please please do your research and if you have any doubts at all follow your gut.

We have 3 "purebred" dogs and all are well behaved. You can get bad behaved mutts and pure, it's just by chance.

My purebred dog was (is still, at 13) crazy hyper, true to her breed just as expected. Best dog I ever had. She's my 80 pound little girl.

I thought all AKC certified dogs provided their parentage and family tree, so you actually will know if it is a reputable breeder.  Most of the popular pure bred dogs are over bred by now anyway.  Labs and Golden Retrievers are a case in point.  Which is why they're prone to hip dysplasia and cancer.

I have a purebred ass hold dachshund then I have a purebred sweet well behaved dachshund.
It's all luck of the draw and not letting my husband pick the dog out. He has picked 2 assholes while I pick the calmer better behaved dogs
