As for me, I love looking at beautiful purebred dogs. I love knowing how my pups will grow up to look and act. I know that responsible breeders do the appropriate health testing on their breeding stock, select the parents with care, and raise and socialize the pups properly. Many of us devote our lives to doing just that.
If you prefer shelter dogs, that is your right. Those dogs need home too, but don't infer that I am somehow a bad person because I admire purebred dogs, and not just Dalmatians. A beautiful, sound well-bred dog is a feast for my eyes. A really good one still sends shivers up and down my spine. My father used to call me a Dog Snob. He was right! I still am.
