    K9 POLL: Adopt, Breeder, or Stray?

    I personally adopted mine and will likely always adopt. I know it means they'll next to always be fixed when I bring them home, but those dogs need love too

    Hoping I can get into a foster program so I can potentially have some unaltered dogs come through my door!

          Oh right! Should've included an "other" category for situations like that.

        All of my pups have been rescued from terrible living situations.
        I long for the day when I no longer need to hide my true self; my deep love for animals.

        I wouldn't adopt. Adopting animals enables the same people who persecute bestiality to come up with more excuses to steal animals from their homes for resale. It's called "flipping pets", sort of like how people flip real estate.
        This is why so many of these people go undercover on social media pretending to be our peers to pressure us to have our own animals. There was actually a recent news article on google about users being pressured into buying things they cannot afford for fear they would lose their Facebook friends or something. Really shady business practices.

          All three, but I've had quite few dogs over the years.

            For those of you who live in the states and have adopted your dog without them being neutered/spayed, how did you do it? Was it an adoption through a shelter/rescue or did you adopt from another person?

              I adopted my guy from a coworker.
              His wife was going to have another baby, and so they were going to take the dog to the pound.
              Obviously I stepped in.

              Not sure how to adopt from a shelter while keeping the dog intact.

              A simple Google search shows there are Lab breeders all over, thankfully! Wouldn't be hard to find one by you. Although if you're on the eastern shore, you may have to travel a little bit.

              There are also sites like getyourpet.com where you can adopt from another owner.

              I voted my preferred, "Breeder, not fixed", because I prefer to get a pup. Sometimes I find a rescue who's exceptional, when I do they come home with me. The status of their reproductive organs has less influence, but I would be a liar if I said it makes no difference.

              One of my current dogs is a neutered rescue, loved same as the others.
