Is there really a pet Overpopulation problem? I know Backyard Breeders adds to the shelters problem, what about the Reputable Breeders? I know some good breeders breed their dogs in hopes of having 1 good show dog in a big litter of puppies. What happens to the ones that can't be show dogs? Do any of those puppies contribute to Overpopulation?

IMHO, there's actually no over-population problem, there is a HUGE over-abandonment problem though & it comes from idiots who buy dogs in hopes that they will satisfy a need the animal is never capable of. When you get a dog because you have a GENUINE, REALISTIC need for one, you don't go dump it, you use it till it dies. None of my dogs have ever ended up in a pound, they stay here till they die.
