|I don’t want a show dog; I just want a pet.
By: JOANNA KIMBALL
|This is one of the most pervasive sentiments that puppy buyers, especially families,
express when they're looking for a dog. What they really mean, of course, is that they
don't want a show BREEDER – don't want to pay the high price they think show breeders
charge, don't want to go through the often-invasive interview process, and think that
they're getting a better deal or a real bargain because they can get a Lab for $300 or a
Shepherd for $150. ( In this case a yorkie, for $600-$800)
I want you to change your mind. I want you to not only realize the benefits of buying a
show-bred dog, I want you to INSIST on a show-bred dog. And I want you to realize that
the cheap dog is really the one that's the rip-off. And then I want you to go be obnoxious
and, when your workmate says she's getting a puppy because her neighbor, who raises
them, will give her one for free, or when your brother-in-law announces that they're
buying a goldendoodle for the kids, I want you to launch yourself into their solar plexus
and steal their wallets and their car keys.
If I ask you why you want a Maltese, or a Lab, or a Leonberger, or a Cardigan, I would
bet you're not going to talk about how much you like their color. You're going to tell me
things about personality, ability (to perform a specific task), relationships with other
animals or humans, size, coat, temperament, and so on. You'll describe playing ball, or
how affectionate you've heard that they are, or how well they get along with kids.
The things you will be looking for aren't the things that describe just "dog"; they'll be the
things that make this particular breed unique and unlike other breeds.
That's where people have made the right initial decision – they've taken the time and
made the effort to understand that there are differences between breeds and that they
should get one that at least comes close to matching their picture of what they want a dog
Their next step, tragically, is that they go out and find a dog of that breed for as little
money and with as much ease as possible.
You need to realize that when you do this, you're going to the used car dealership,
WATCHING them pry the "Audi" plate off a new car, observing them as they use
Bondo to stick it on a '98 Corolla, and then writing them a check and feeling smug that
you got an Audi for so little.
It is no bargain.
Those things that distinguish the breed you want from the generic world of "dog" are only
there because somebody worked really hard to get them there. And as soon as that work
ceases, the dog, no matter how purebred, begins to revert to the generic. That doesn't
mean you won't get a good dog – the magic and the blessing of dogs is that they are so
hard to mess up, in their good souls and minds, that even the most hideously bred one
can still be a great dog – but it will not be a good Shepherd, or good Puli, or a good
Cardigan. You will not get the specialized abilities, tendencies, or talents of the breed.
If you don't NEED those special abilities or the predictability of a particular breed, you
should not be buying a dog at all. You should go rescue one. That way you're saving a life
and not putting money in pockets where it does not belong.
If you want a purebred and you know that a rescue is not going to fit the bill, the absolute
WORST thing you can do is assume that a name equals anything. They really are
nothing more than name plates on cars. What matters is whether the engineering and
design and service department back up the name plate, so you have some expectation
that you're walking away with more than a label.
Keeping a group of dogs looking and acting like their breed is hard, HARD work. If you
do not get the impression that the breeder you're considering is working that hard, is that
dedicated to the breed, is struggling to produce dogs that are more than a breed name,
you are getting no bargain; you are only getting ripped off.
