My high horse is no better than your high road. Why does the pound dog have more of a right to a home than the dog from a breeder? What if a breeder is doing everything perfect, breeding perfect, healthy dogs yet can't get a single person interested because everyone has told puppy buyers not to buy from breeders.
How is purebred breeders stopping breeding going to clear the pounds? All it does is make people wait for a purebred or depending on how long the ban on breeding is make purebred dogs extinct in Australia.
