    3) Dogs that are overbred. In order to find the perfect dog, one might have to breed hundreds, which of course leads to the problem of overpopulation.

    Ohhhh... edited to add that some breeds have been "honed" through the years to exaggerate certain features. This has caused major medical problems with certain breeds.

    BTW, I'm no PETA apologist. I think they are way too extreme, to say the least. But I do think the show dog world is not best model of perfect pet ownership.
    Excess grooming?



    Yeah, I don't know if tail and ear snipping are unethical - lots of owners do that, but I have to admit that I'm not sure how the procedure is done. Neutering might fall into this category (If I had to chose between the two for me personally, I'd take ear snipping in a heartbeat), but that's generally promoted.

    I pulled some info on this event from PETA's website:

    The PETA Files: KKKrazy Protest Outside Westminster

    http://blog.peta.org/archives/kkk_akc_leaflets.pdf

    The web page doesn't offer much in explanation for the event, but the leaflets suggest one of your points - breeding causes dalmatians to be deaf and pugs have a hard time breathing. I dunno, seems like a stretch - I'd like to hear the breeders side of this story before making any conclusions.

    They do add that breeding purebreds causes a random mutt somewhere to not get adopted which is a far, far stretch for marching with KKK garb IMO.

    Still looks like media whoring to me so far.

    PETA is a dumbass organization which supports eco-terrorists. That's it, anyone who supports PETA is either insane or hasn't done proper research into what PETA really does, says, and funds.

    Doesn't the AKC also give out awards for mixed breeds?

    PETA FAIL.

    If instead of dressing up in garbs that promote racism and remind people back to a time where there was a congress bill (I kid you not) that was an anti-lynching agent (as if lynching didn't fall under "murder") they should make an actual statement by making some logical assertion.

    However, the only problem with dog breeding in general (I mean besides cases such as should we continue to breed bit-pulls, rottweilers, etc.) is that we've pretty much ruined "dogs".
    As soon as humans die off, much of the dog population will to. Small dogs may not even be able to get out of their human's house, and will not be able to travel much; not to mention a tasty snack.

    Large dogs will be too aggressive and end up killing one another off.

    Medium dogs will be fine, but hey that's where the dog population started.

    PETA needs to learn how to successfully promote an argument instead of pulling of childish **** like that.

    the KKK wasn't trying to create a "master race" that was the Nazis, stupid PETA. Not all white racist groups are the same.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I'm sorry, they did a survey about allowing them.

    I have seen dog shows on TV where they do have mixed breed categories. I don't remember who sanctioned them though.

    Where do you get the idea that large dogs are more agressive than medium ones?

    Large dogs wont die off because they are too agressive, they will die off because they are too large.

    Wolves are the size they are for a reason.
