No offence Occy, but I believe you are now grasping at straws. Your question has been answered, just not the way you want it to be. If your use of language was 'so superior' you would realise that best practice had not even come into the equation.
As for cross breds, good dog, yes Occy, I rescue those mongrel bred Pugs too. I don't disntinguish but I do set limits. If there is Pug in there I rescue it.
This isnt about Pug Rescue, I agree. It is about a simplistic view and the right or lack of right to make assumptions and judge.
As for the poll being a real indicator... please Occy.
