Sometimes people ask us why we do what we do. The answer is simple. Contrary to what the ‘animal rights’ fanatics believe, responsible breeders are not the “bad guys.” This year alone, HSUS has introduced bills in over 30 states that would restrict the right to breed dogs. New Hampshire was one of them. Thanks to the wonderful testimony by breeders, HB 337 was defeated. In an attempt to gain support for their bills, the animal rights extremists have labeled anyone who breeds dogs a puppy mill. Here’s an article about the harassment the breeder of Joe Biden’s puppy has suffered.
What they don’t talk about is the good that breeders do. Without them, there would be no Search and Rescue dogs, no ‘seizure dogs,’ no guide dogs. Thanks to research funded by the American Kennel Club, there are better treatments for dogs with renal failure, earlier diagnostic tests for cancer and other diseases in dogs and there’s even hope for people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
