    Thumbs down Don Burke PROMOTING Puppy Farms and Designer Dogs

    I just found this link through Oscar's Law NSW and I feel physically ill after reading all of this garbage. I think it's safe to say that he's received money from puppy farmers. Just in case anyone thought he was a credible person on dogs: Don Burke on Designer Dogs

    The worst part has got to be "The pups are cheaper to buy and cheaper to maintain as they are usually healthier."

    I don't care if it's an old fact sheet, I hope that people wake up to the idiot that this man is.

    Its aggressive, but it might get some attention.
    "After reading the article on disigner breeds and puppy mills, I feel physically ill. Every thing that was stated are either blatant lies, or a lack of education and talking a load of crap.
    Real breeders breed for health, temperament, beauty. And in that order! These breeders put huge amounts of time, effort and money into their well thought out breeding, and rarely contribute to Australias huge shelter numbers.
    75% of shelter dogs are crossbreeds. Where do these crossbreeds come from? Puppy mills and backyard breeders.
    I have a regretful pet shop Jack Russell X Maltese, with terribly bowed legs. But whats funny, is he's one of the lucky ones! He 12 and going strong.
    You know whats not fair? Dogs spending the first 3 years of its life with hip dysplasia and a heart murmur, until they die from a seizure.
    I have lost a lot of respect for Don, and I can't believe you are encouraging such disguting acts of cruelty. Have you ever heard of the RSPCA's 'Oscars Law'?
    If not, then do some research."

    I am gobsmaked how can he say a place that has 2 to 3 dogs a pen is ok & that the dogs are having the time of their lives(in a pen).
    I am not against respondsable x breeding but any form of bulk breeding is terrible & there is no way health checks & approprate follow up is happening. You can NOT breed well ajusted pups in these conditions & mixing 1 breed to another is very unpredictable in type & temperment.
    I knew he had promoted disigner breeds but he has promoted puppy farming as well that is just unbeleiveable. He isn't well liked with many of the real Quarter Horse people either due to things he's done within the QH breed.
    Dogs make everyday life enjoyable...........

    The Big Burke has always promoted Designer Dogs. The dog world knows he is an idiot, he has even abused a friend of mine because she wouldn't take part in his show (with a rare breed).

    I just wish the rest of the general public knew the truth. Buying a good dog is hard enough these days without morons like that making it harder.
