Dogs end up in shelters because of indiscriminate breeding and irresponsible owners. Buyers research and select puppies from reputable breeders because they are looking for specific, predictable traits and attributes.
Ethical breeders are there for the life of the dog - they will provide information, advice, support and a safety net from puppyhood to living legend.

Reputable breeders want you to have the most well-rounded puppy they can - working on early social skills with people, dogs, and their environment helps you to get a confident puppy.

❤️💚💞 Happy National Purebred Dog Day !
Yes, I AM proud to have responsibly bred dogs from a breeder. I can proudly say I know temperments of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and many generations back behind my dogs, so my dogs were likely to develop predictable temperments.
I can proudly say many generations back have been tested and cleared of genetic health issues, so my dogs are less likely to develop debilitating diseases such as hip dysplasia, heart defects, or even allergies.
I can proudly say I have support from my breeder, with any questions, concerns, or God forbid if I could no longer keep my dogs, or if something happened to me, they would never end up homeless.
I can proudly say that my responsibly bred dogs have NOTHING to do with the dogs irresponsible owners dumped in shelters.
I AM PROUD to have a responsibly bred, purebred dog, and will not be shamed. There are unethical rescues just as there are unethical breeders, and all should not be lumped together.
Adopt OR Shop, Responsibly. *
A reputable breeder understands the importance of cleanliness to puppies' health. While every puppy enjoys a good romp in the mud, they should not be living in it. See where your puppy is being raised, and where its mother will be left to raise another litter.

Will heath testing guarantee that you will not get a puppy with health issues? No, since most disorders have complex modes of inheritance. But it can lessen the chances significantly. With an estimated lifetime cost of $15,000 or more to treat a dog with significant hip dysplasia - don't you want to do everything you can to avoid problems like these in your puppy?
An ethical breeder who is committed to the breed looks at the whole picture of the parents before selecting mates - health testing, performance/show record, structure, movement, breed type, family history, pedigree and, most importantly, temperament.

Newfoundlands are a working breed - hauling in nets of cod and pulling boats to shore, pulling carts of fish or delivering the mail. They should be strong dogs capable of heavy work.
We are grateful to @toolklean for their continued support of National Purebred Dog Day's photo contest on May 1. For their “Jedi” UV Light Stik Photo Challenge, Tool Klean offered the UV Light Stik appliance in which a 10 - 20 second slow sweep destroys most germs and eases the concern of sleeping in a hotel bed - a must for dog owners and frequent travelers. Our winner was Dawne Doyle.

Our thanks to John and Elaine Bell Fasteners Inc. for sponsoring the, "Any time. Anywhere. Any job" Challenge. Melody L Falcone has won herself a very slick #Dremel 4000 High Performance Rotary Tool. We've been sharing photo contest winners from National Purebred Dog Day's 2019 Photo contest.
Looks like we missed #NPDD yesterday with #wkcdogshow but here’s a little shot from when we got to go see our friend’s barn where she boards her horse. They have four lovely Irish Wolfhounds, one of Conrad’s favorite breeds (shocking as they resemble one another 😜). Will definitely be adding an #irishwolfhound To our pack someday. We will add some more pictures of them later once we clear up some space on the computer/hard drives. Knew that day would come. 🤦♂️
Yesterday, on National Purebred Dog Day, a mother sighed and said “If only he was a rescue, then he would be perfect” about my puppy.
My puppy, who at this same moment was doting lovingly on her young daughter and a friend (age 7) - melting into the snuggles and the kisses on the top of his head as they all played together.
Tilting his head back and forth as they made weird sounds he was trying to understand.
Causing the girls’ ecstatic giggles to fill the air as they played together and captivated everyone around us with their joy and innocence.
Carefully mirroring one of the girls when she brilliantly decided to play-bow towards him (a decision all her own, that came after she said she wished that she knew what her “woos” meant in dog since wanted to speak his language AND understand what she was saying). As my puppy was living out one of the BEST moments he’s had so far, I was thankful he didn’t understand what was said about him.
That because he is free of genetic disease, from parents that have good structure with appropriate drive and temperaments, and a long line of people who devote much of their lives to researching and making proper decisions toward his breed and his creation, he is imperfect.
After the shock started to wear off, both because it was rude and so inaccurate, all I could manage was “Well, I think he’s still pretty perfect anyways” and to let his actions speak for who he is.
And he is pretty perfect. I know we will get to share a long life together because of the care that was put into his existence before, and every moment since, he was born.
In the past, friends and neighbors have asked if he was a rescue. When told no, I’ve been met with dejected responses such as “Oh. Well … I guess I can forgive you.” “Oh. I guess we can still be friends anyways”. On #NationalPurebredDogDay , may she think about what she saw between a girl and my dog. May she choose to ask me in the future about why I chose a breeder, and learn that it was after multiple rescues and a major heartbreak that I wanted to experience the joy of predictability and responsible breeding. May she be willing to learn and accept my boy as perfect, too. #NPDD
Happy late #nationalpurebreddogday ! #NPDD
What are your favorite breeds, and why? 🐾 "National Purebred Dog Day® celebrates the heritage, diversity and predictability of the purebred dog. Each breed is a living legacy of the culture that created it for a reason, each breed indelibly etched in that culture’s history just as surely as its music, art, and language.
Historically, purebred dogs have worked alongside their people and provided them companionship while serving as guide dogs, service dogs, conservation dogs, livestock guardians, search and rescue dogs, earth dogs, police dogs, canine soldiers serving by the sides of our military men and women, and ultimately guardians of family, home, and hearth."
We believe in being able to keep our rights to own a purpose bred dog. We believe everyone should have a choice in where they acquire their next pet and/or working dog. .
We want to thank preservation breeders, like Reina's breeder, @potrero_performance_dogs, for keeping breeds like the #braccoitaliano , the #canecorso , and the #lowchen alive and thriving. Without breeders who truly care for these breeds, we would definitely see these breeds disappear.
Happy National Purebred Dog Day! I have loved purebred dogs my entire life. Starting at the age of five when the only thing I wanted from Santa was a Dog Breed Encyclopedia. Growing up with Great Danes, a Labrador retriever and now Mastiffs... there is just nothing like watching genetics come to life in a #purebreddog . From the purpose for which they were bred, to conformation and temperament.... #i ❤️purebreddogs! Ironically, and completely unplanned, yesterday’s post on BigDogMom.com is all about the mixed breed DOODLE and what people need to know BEFORE they buy into the DOODLE trend. 🔹LINK IN BIO 🔹 #nationalpurebreddogday#npdd#purebreddogs

It's National Purebred Dog Day. And what a FINE DAY IT IS.
Happy National Purebred Dog day!
Lately, I have seen a lot of ignorance from people regarding breeders and the adopt don’t shop mentality. It seems fitting to remind people why Purebred dogs exist and why good breeders are so vital.
