No problem, I apologize for my remark to you too. But it’s irritating that someone who decides that they want a specific breed or decides to not get their dog fixed is being compared to someone who tortures dogs and kill kids, it’s ridiculous and what even more ridiculous is the losers who compare dogs to humans. You can love your pet but they are animals and treating them like humans is equally cruel and they are happier when they are allowed to be dogs.
Humans are animals too. If it ain't vegetable (you) or mineral, then it's an animal. There ain't nothing else, Einstein.

Get a job, loser. Don't exploit dogs for money. Breeding should be outlawed due to the number of animals euthanized each year by non-disciplined low-lifes.
I agree with you. I don't know how anyone can in good conscious take money for puppies that their dogs create. It's sickening. I volunteer at a HS on the south side. Knowing what these shelter dogs go through, seeing them come in by the dozens but leave by the handful... it's just not right that people make money off of their pets having pups.

Go puck yourself idiot and re-read what I wrote. We decided to get her fixed after a few litters and I don’t need some dam law or tree hugger to make that decision for me, you should be euthanized for wanting to outlaw everything you disagree with.
You tell 'em, hass! See? That's what I'm talkin' about. Euthanizing PEOPLE!

Ok, the article is about some idiot who stole a dog, not whether the dog was from the pound, pet store, etc. The part that stands out is that this guy STOLE right in front of his 5 year old son! Who cares where the dog came from, stealing is stealing! I won't be surprised if we read about the kid 10 years fromn now, brought up on a shoplifting charge.

Someday I hope there is a law that requires a license to become a parent. Then these losers won't be able to infect future generations with their ignorance

I'd also like to know how they found the guy. Obviously they didn't ask him for ID or even his name, or else they would have figured out it wasn't his dog. Maybe there was a surveillance video, but someone would have to recognize him.

Chances are, he's recognizable.
