Put less thought into buying a dog than they do into buying a car, which they won't have for nearly as long? Buy a dog because the name is cute or trendy or because they puppies looked cute in the pictures (with no other research)? Guess what... all puppies are cute! I have 3 different clients, that have all purchased the same "designer" breed (this is code for mixed breed). The reasons they purchased these dogs were the following: 1. They heard the name of said "breed" and thought it sounded cute. 2. The puppy pictures they saw online looked cute. 3. The "breeder's" website said that this "breed" never shed, was very quiet, and required very little exercise. Of the three clients, 2 of the dogs are fear biters... one has sent a child to the emergency room. The third has completely destroyed the owners apartment, and was leaping head high yipping its ugly little head off the entire time I was trying to talk to the owner. *sigh* I am frustrated because 2 of the dogs are going to lose their homes, and I'm afraid one may lose his life. It makes my heart hurt.
