Oh Oh , Guess What Breed?

Guess what breed is America's fastest growing breed in popularity in the last ten years? http://www.ohmidog.com/tag/havanese/

From 86th to 31st since the year 2000 http://www.akc.org/reg/dogreg_stats.cfm

oh, ya... I just saw it as dog owners seeing and realizing the Havs amazing personalities and wanting to add one to thier family... but I can totally see your point. I guess now it's even more important than EVER to find and deal with reputable breeders!

Unfortunately, that is already happening. Look at all the puppy mills and BYB's churning out underbred Hav puppies.

IMO it's not a good thing. Most anyone whom has been seriously involved with any breeds will tell you it's the worst thing to happen to the breed.

My first reaction Dave, was uh oh. I share the fear that it only encourages those with dollars signs in their eyes to use these poor souls for nothing more than profit making machines. I pray for all the dogs who are forced into servitude and a life of abject misery. If only I could wave my magic wand and free them all . . . sigh!

That's actually too bad. We all have a big obligation to educate peeps on puppy mills and we need to try and have a big influence of getting peeps to not support them in any way. These are beating little hearts and living souls, not objects to obtain and profit from.
