Negativity surrounding purchasing from breeder
A couple of weeks ago, we purchased a golden puppy from a responsible breeder in Wisconsin. We are so happy with her, and things are going really well.
I've received a lot of backlash from people because we purchased from a breeder. I actually had someone just tell me that we essentially killed a shelter dog because we purchased rather than rescued. I had no idea how to respond to that. Have any of you ever received similar rhetoric, and if so, do you constantly feel the need to explain your decision to purchase?
