The best dog...

The best dog I have ever known , was one people in the breeding world call a misfit. Well my Dog Oreo, has been a Dream , and I got another named Brownie , and he is just as good as a cookie , What I am trying to say is, look to the shelters , there are so many mixed "ice cream and candy" , and truly, they're the Dogs that will be there when you need them , and don't have to look pretty , and don't need papers to help ya out . They are probably the best you can get and not pay a dime for. And is it not so sad that there are so many dogs just waiting to be saved, and cost next to nothing , yet people pay hundreds to get a dog , that is not by their means a true Breed., And what is a true Breed? Papers? Heck I need no papers to tell me my dogs have good intentions , and to show me they love me , and will protect me to the end .

GO to your animal shelter , and adopt , and if you don't want a dog , donate $$ to your nearest shelter and I am truly sure the animals will not turn it away.

Heads up, some of the most famous animals were non breed . So I guess you get my point , . but if you don't, those little ones who were thought to have have had a lineage, and found they did not , what happens to them? Go figure.

The animal shelter also has beautiful kittens and cats that also are not true breeds, but that's where you find the best.
