    Ours is a nonregistered purebreed that we rescued.

    We'll take what we can get.

    Rescued. Purebreed or mixed is irrelevant... I just want to rescue

    I will only ever rescue a dog, and will never ever buy from a breeder. And it seems mutts have much better temperments anyway, at least that has been my experience in the dogs I have owned/lived with, but as long as I rescue the dog, if its mixed or not means very little.

    I prefer a mixed breed/rescue but I would/have owned a purebred dog too.

    I agree with Jill...We do shows and companion animal events atm...And until the AKC accepts mixes we have no choice...We can own a mix and do agility but only in nadac.

    I dont think people should look down on me, its a hobby and a sport and I love it.

    My English Shepard was adopted and we also adopted our aussie.
    Are you scrappy enough for me

    I don't really care I think it all depends on the dog. I mean if I for some reason needed/wanted a tiny dog I'd probably go with a pure breed but other than that. I like mutts just fine

    I would never own a purebred. I honestly do not see a reason for it. I own my dogs for companionship and because they are part of my family. I do not own them to show or get titles. I love my dogs no matter what health problems they have. So I would not research bloodlines or anything to get a dog that may not have health problems. Simply put, I will not support puppy mills or breeders when I do not agree with them.
