For those considering spending ridiculous amounts of money on a hybrid (aka a mixed breed or mutt), and especiaaly anyone considering breeding their animals, I hope this will change your mind. A reminder that the only victims in the overpopulation of pets are the pets themselves.

My curiosity got the best of me.

I saw this post yesterday and avoided watching it, but I finally did today. SObbed, shivered, waled, etc. I am an emotional wreck.

Trust me, that is all too common across our country. It must stop.

Please spay/neuter your companion animals and urge EVERYONE else to do the same so we can someday STOP this epidemic.

Thanks for sharing the link. It's important that people realize this and face up to it. We caused this problem, not the animals, and they are the ones suffering for it. So sad.

It is an emotional video, but it is the sad truth. I think everyone who is considering breeding or owning a dog should watch it. There are countless animals in shelters and rescues desperate for a home, without which, their future is bleak. I just wish people would consider this information before deciding to add to our overcrowded pet population or spending hundreds to thousands on a hybrid (which you could adopt the same mixed breeds in shelters and rescues across the nation).
Breeding should only be done by an expert in the particular breed, for the love of the breed, and for the betterment of the breed. It should not be done because you love your dog and think he/she would make sweet puppies, or to make money (legitimate breeding practices do not garner profit), or to teach children the "miracle of life" or responsibility.
The video is the ultimate outcome for these poor animals. Someone is going to decide the dog is too big, too rough, too destructive, won't potty train, too sick, or they realize they don't have time for it.
