    I think in the long run, it would be better if no one bought the dogs. Yes, they'll probably be dumped/destroyed, etc., but if people keep buying them, breeders are going to keep breeding them. If no one buys them now, there's no demand for them and therefore the supply will diminish.

    At least, that's the theory

    And pet shops can not just dump the dogs. They have legislation against it.
    If no one baught the dogs, they would find it hard to sell them, they will think twice about buying them again, the puppy farmers will have no one to buy their dogs, they will have to stop breeding.
    In a perfect world it just might work that way...

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!

    Masha, the trouble is that there are many people that want to "save" the pet shop puppies, and while their intentions are noble, at the end of the day the dogs are not being "saved", they are being "sold"....only to be replaced by a new batch of farmed pups.

    It's supply and demand, if there was no demand, then there would be no point in breeding the pups to begin with. Basic economics, the pups in these shops are just inventory, any retailer assesses their stock and how well it sells, the stuff that doesn't sell they don't stock, if it sells they keep stocking it. Unfortunately, the poor animals in pet shops DO sell, and the retailer knows that the general public purchase them based on an emotional decision, not on any moral or ethical or common-sense based decisions.

    Yes. But Pepsi's sister knows all about BYBs, etc. I think she bought it becauser she knew if she didnt, it was goonna end up dead. An impulse buy, sure, but there was also some knowledge behind it. Not all of us can walk past a dog that we know is gonna be PTS without wanting to save it. (Yes, I know some of you avoid stores selling pets, but I doubt that its very convenient for everyone)

    Like I said before pet shop can not dump or pts any healthy animal in their care. Their rules state that they must be held accountable for every animal.
