I could never breed. I’d never have the money to. A good breeder isn’t going to make any profit off their pups, and I’d want to be a good breeder 😛
Although I consider my current dog a rescue, I plan to get my next dog from a reputable breeder. There’s many reasons for it. I plan to get a standard poodle for one, and I may decide to show it or do other CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) events. I also want a stable dog. My current dog was an absolute nightmare when we got her. I do not want to do that again any time soon. I want to know that I’m getting a tested, healthy animal as well.
There’s also some breeds that I would never get from a shelter, Specifically, German Shepherd Dogs. I do want one one day, but with the high risk of behavior problems and hip problems, I just could not risk getting one from a shelter.
