Dishonest breeders are into it for the money and do not do the health checks for hips, heart, and eyes. They also break any number of rules for genetics. There are too many goldens who've been inbred. They may be cute, but they end up with health problems.


This may be a very unpopular sentiment with the rescue people, but I am not against buying a puppy from a breeder if they are ethical and reputable. I would like to see the lines of the different breeds to go on. If all we did was rescue, the different breeds would vanish. I'm into doing both. We have had two goldens from breeders, three rescues and three senior fosters down through the years, plus five of our seven cats.


We're down to one of our two goldens, who is about to turn 12. When he's gone, because of our age it will make more sense to rescue a senior something than to acquire a puppy.
