The problem is a lot of people don't research and I wouldn't be surprised if they used a chocolate wheel to pick a dog breed. The thread "Words from a shelter manager" says a lot about these people and what research they don't do. Dog owners on forums don't know the person asking "What breed should I get" from a bar of soap and people lie too. Some people on another forum give advice on breeds they've never owned, so the person asking is none the wiser. People should join this forum and ask what people's dogs are like, but they still must see the dog up close and dog shows are a great way of doing this.
