Yeah actually it has everything to do with what you’re saying.
You’re under the impression that only adopting out dogs is somehow the solution to the problem and if everyone adopted out dogs everyone would be happier and you fail to have enough foresight to see why that could potentially be a problem in an array of circumstances.
You also fail to take into account the fact that dogs exist for more reasons than just companionship.
"There are too many dogs" no shit, but you can’t be seriously telling me that was your only point when all you’ve done in every single post is bitch about how breeders are a major contribution to that issue. MY point is your point has no backing and at least I took the time to explain why.
If you’d like to show me evidence that responsible breeding is the cause of a large portion of shelter dogs please do. If you can prove to me that a large majority of shelter dogs are dogs from responsible breeders and not a bunch of backyard breeders, go right ahead.
Nobody is saying you shouldn’t adopt dogs. If that works for you then good, do it, congrats. I’m sure the dog will be grateful for it. Telling people they shouldn’t get a dog from a breeder is hilarious and silly for a plethora of reasons and just shows how uneducated your opinion is if you haven’t bothered to learn enough to realize why this is no good long term solution to anything.
It does not seem as if you are aware otherwise you wouldn’t have said something as pointless as you did.
And yes that is the magic of the internet.
Why did you jump in and give your pointless comment on someone else’s photo when they were trying to celebrate having a new puppy?
You didn’t need to jump in but you did anyway and now you’re being pissy because you have to deal with other people’s opinions. Boo-hoo.
I have a lot of mixed feelings on pet foxes, including how domesticated they truly are. I do think they are removed enough from wild foxes that they could not ever be reintroduced, but I still look at these pets as wild animals in comparison to actual domestic companion animals. If someone were to ask me if I think they make good pets, I would say no and I would never encourage someone to get one. But I have seen several examples here on tumblr of people who are able to provide properly for them, and that they seem to do well. The people that I have seen, too, make a point to say how demanding these animals are, which I think is important in their positions.
Just to point out that the vast majority of pet foxes do not originate from the Russian domestication program but instead come from regular fur farm stock that are now being bred as pets in America and Europe. Less than five foxes have ever been successfully imported from the Russian project into North America as they are very protective over where their foxes end up. It also costs around $8k to import one, compared to an average of $400-800 for an American-bred fox.
