I think you would be doing the right thing to inform her... the problem most people have is the lack of education there is around puppy farms and how pet shops operate.
You're not telling her what to do you are simply passing on information.
I don't think it was ever Kuri's point that she was going to ram it down this girls throat.
I definately think a reputable breeder is an option for this girl, she seems like she knows what she wants as in 'not an ugly dog'... I can't beleive someone could say that oh well... everyone is different.
For me, shelter dog YES! If not a shelter dog then a good breeder.
I hope she doesn't go to a pet shop this weekend tho, lol.
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself
