My partner, daughter and I are on a waiting list for a Dalmatian puppy. We hope our fur baby will be born around January. I told some people this and I got many rude comments saying it's selfish to want a specific breed and be on a waiting list when there are so many abandoned dogs that need homes in rescues. So my question is, is there a problem with wanting a certain breed that is right for your family and lifestyle? Is it selfish to not rescue a dog? I just feel like a Dal will be perfect for our lifestyle and want my daughter to grow up with the dog. Why is this so wrong?
