Buy one, Get one killed


Breeder: Just think in 3 weeks you will have a new dog and a new member of the family Mom: We are so excited Breeder: And for now here is the dog you just killed. Mom: Oh my god Dad: What are you doing? Breeder: Well you buy a dog from a breeder you kill a dog in a shelter Daughter: I do not want to kill a dog Breeder: Too late, you already paid Dad: What are we supposed to do with this? Breeder: How should I know you killed him

  1. No i really don't think that i killed another dog by buying a dog from a breeder.
    The previous owner that took the dog to the shelter or abandoned the dog or whatever, is the one that led to the demise of the dog.

    Blaming us is just wrong, sure you can look at it that way if you like but its really the person that let the animal get to that stage in the first place…

  2. Great ad! I wish we can actually do this perhaps everyone will finally WAKE UP. The point is: Don't Breed or Buy while shelter animals die… spay and neuter your pets!

  3. I never thought about it until now, what do they do with the dogs that are in the pet stores that aren't getting new homes? Do they kill them if they can't sell? Hmm? Creepy and sooo sad.
    I wanna adopt a dog now! Doggy <3

  4. We had a Scottish terrier from a breeder and he was always sick,so IMO breeder dogs aren't that healthy either he had A LOT of health problems my rescue mutt is healthier

  5. i iwsh they would show this ad all over the US. its so true. it kills me to see when people dont get animals from a shelter. I have gotten two cats and a dog from 2 different humane societies and thats the only place i will get an animal. why would you get one from a breeder when you can save the life of a poor animal who didnt even ask to be born. SAVE AN ANIMAL GET FROM A SHELTER!!!!

  6. no matter how u look at it they are both lives that need to be taken in and id rather have the younger one that doesnt come with a hole bad of trouble and issues.

  7. i adopted my dog,
    he was on the streets in a box with his mom, brothers and sisters, and he was the last onee, he was different, the only one with a docked tail, i didnt kill a dog(: i love dogss :]

    breeders are stupidd O_o

  8. last i checked 40% + of that 4 million are unadoptable because of either medical or personality problems that cannot be corrected for one reasion or another. And when i go and buy an animal from a breeder, i only buy from a registered breeder.

  9. Walk into a shelter and count how many purebred dogs are there. Mostly mutts huh? Point your finger at the people who won't get their pets fixed. Unless its a quasi-breed like a Whoodle or what ever, why would a breeder intentionally breed mutts?

  10. WTF? I know you're trying to use guilt/scare tactics. but this is ridiculous! And with breeders you know exactly what you are getting, and what possible decects and illnesses the breed is prone to. Meanwhile, most shelters have to ballpark their guesses on breed, which could prove traumatizing if your adopted dog has a condition you didn't accurately predict. I'm not totally against adoption, it's just that to say that adoption is the only way to go is wrong- btw can we shoot the salesman now?

  11. i agree with buying dogs in shelters, however what happens to the dogs that the breeders can't sell? don't they go to shelters after? so in the long run why not buy from a breeder? if you get the right breeder you get a good pet, and that is one less dog running the street, or going to a shelter

  12. @SubZerofrost1 The stores will eventually go out of the puppy selling buissness I suppose, So then a constant gstream of dogs isnt flowing while perfectly good ones sit in shelters waiting to be killed.

  13. @DeathSlayerV You know, a lot of health problems a bred into show dogs, to suit the requirements, until eventually they are nothing like the original breed. People win, but the dog has to suffer.

  14. what a load of horse shit, i cant but a dame pup without someone telling me some other dog is going to die from my choice, and there are saying I GOT HIM KILLED?!?the people that abuse them and the dickheads that put them in gas chambers kill them not me……ass-hats.

  15. I am not going to feel guilty for buying my dog from a breeder where the dogs were outside running and playing all day, and sleeping on cozy beds indoors. When my family was looking for a dog no shelters we called had any puppies.

  16. I'd rather buy from a breeder. At least then I know I"m getting a nice fresh dog. That has been happy. 😛

  17. @screamhappythings …"nice fresh dog"? It's like you're buying a new pair of jeans or some fresh food -__-; I've always adopted my pets right from the streets and they're happy.

  18. Not surprising that such a skewed idea came from PETA. Wanna know what the REAL problem is? Irresponsible pet owners, petstores who support puppy mills and backyard breeders, and people who purchase animals when it's a baby and it's cute. I'm all for adoption, I've adopted myself, but it's 100% WRONG AND UNFAIR to blame breeders for this problem. Get a life PETA, and stop putting out such skewed perceptions! Do some damn research!

  19. @jp03921 Actually, I would say that the blame resides more on backyard breeders and irresponsible pet owners and pet stores, than breeders. Good breeders work very hard to make sure their pups have the best chance at a forever home. Our local shelter has seen quite a number of dogs and cats who were adopted out, only to be returned later. It's the pet owners that are the biggest problem, not the breeders.

  20. why do breeders have to breed dogs just so those puppies are sold to be used in dog fights, dumped in the street, or simply suffer for the rest of their lives…

  21. if you were not going to adopt a dog anyway, you might as well get a dog from a breeder. they too need good homes. just make sure it is a responsible breeder. i will adopt some of my dogs and get others of them from breeders. BUT NEVER PET STORES!

  22. Oh my god, i hate this! Its not true. I got my dog for a animal care center that ur MENT to buy dogs from there. And they get newted before u by them. 🙂

  23. I got mine from a animal home and makes sure before u by it to newt it. I wanted my cat to have kittens but it wasnt allowed.

  24. So, the dog bought from the breeder hasn't got a right to live either? Let's not treat these guys as though they were commodities, i buy Jiffy so Peter Pan loses money. Honestly, PETA, get a frigging grip.

  25. I have been to many shelters, I did not know that there were so many breeders of mixed breed dogs out there. Obviously I have been misled by the AKC and the whole purebred thing. I did not know that all the dogs in the shelters that do not look like any sort of breed were bred by breeders.

  26. Personally I feel dog breeding has mixed ethical consequences its hard to conclude whether its right or wrong. I don't feel it's a necessity so with the benefit of a doubt perhaps it would be best to not buy from breeders.

  27. @mcridiculose
    Nope. The breeder keeps the unwanted dogs until someone DOES want them. But if breeders see these videos, it might inspire them to stop breeding in the first place.

  28. @mcridiculose
    No, the breeder will just give it away for free to a friend or someone else, give it away for free, or give it to a shelter. By adopting, you're giving less demand to a breeder, and eventually they'll stop breeding.

  29. PETA's dream to stop animal cruelty(agree) and make everyone vegan(WTF?) is not going to happen. It is not theoretically possible.

  30. I have two pedigree spanials and my friend has seven adopted springers too that sound a little bit to messed up for your comment to be true.

  31. I think its a damn good ad for shock value,but not so great for looking at the bigger picture….and that is….damn selfish people who are too damn lazy and cant be bothered to properly look after their pets.Thats the problem,so fix that.

  32. Everyone is losing the point without breeds there would be no guide dogs or police dogs…so pure breeds are good.

  33. yes, they euthanize the sick and dying throwaways that irresponsible assholes decide they don't want to care for anymore – oftentimes only to get a shiny new puppy! and continue the sick cycle over again.

  34. You can train mixed breeds as well as pure breeds. The perceived advantages to purebreeds is the uniformity of product and ability to see health problems in the pedigree

  35. i believe that many "breeders", in the end, want the money, so the bred dog that you're referring to would just be sold very cheaply. the bigger message is: stop adding to the growing problem. there's already too many dogs being murdered. why are we purposely making more? lets all be responsible.

  36. It seems that most people don't know the reality of the puppy mills. Their breeding dogs live their entire lives in filthy small cages, with minimal amounts of food, water and companionship, not to mention that they're often disease ridden. These pratices are common because phenotype (envinromental acquired traits) doesn't affect genetic heritage, so while your average $3000 dog looks good his mother most certainly doesn't.

  37. THE WHOLE PURPOSE IS TO STOP BREEDERS FROM BREEDING, I AGREE DON'T BUY FROM BREEDERS ADOPT FROM HIGH KILL SHELTERS… ALL BREEDERS NEED TO BE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS, OVER 1 MILLION SHELTER DOGS GET KILLED YEARLY THROUGHOUT THE USA …WE DON'T NEED ANYMORE DOGS BEING BREED…SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PETS…BREEDERS NEED TO BE TAKEN DOWN! PERIOD…

  38. THERE ARE PURE BORDER COLLIES AT SHELTERS…CHECK BEFORE YOU SPEAK! i HAVE SEEN THEM KILLED BY SHELTER MANY TIMES

  39. WHY WOULD YOU PUT A DOG OR ANY ANIMAL IN SHELTER ANYWAY AS THEY ARE MUCH HAPPIER ON THE STREETS!!!HOW WERE THEY OK BEFORE HUMANS EVEN EXISTED?AND NOW WE CLOSE THEM IN CAGES ONLY COS PEOPLE PITTY THEM???PITTY THEM FOR SPENDING ENTIRE LIVES IN JAIL!!! sorry4caps just want this to be seen!

  40. A couple years ago, my dad and I went to our local animal shelter. We failed the interview because we used to own a pitbull whose parents were fighters. My dad told a friend at work and he said people who were put on the 'blacklist' can never adopt an shelter animal.

  41. Shelters have adoption policies to protect the animals. We've heard of people being placed on a "do not adopt" list because of lying on their application, neglect, or abuse. Shelters do the responsible thing when they protect the animals. Most shelters have encountered many people who will bring a dog back shortly after adoption or just abandon the dog because they decide they can't take care of the dog. We encourage you to try again!

  42. If only RESPONSIBLE BREEDERS BRED ONCE PER YEAR, AND ONLY UP TO 5 OR 6 FEMALES(SO THAT THEY CAN PROPERLY CARE FOR THEM), WE COULD USE SHELTERS FOR WHAT THEY WERE MEANT TO BE. A shelter for the pets, only until their family found them, or they got a new home.
    PUPPY AND KITTEN MILLS ARE GLUTTING THE SYSTEM.
    IS OUR GOVERNMENT REALLY SO "OWNED" BY THE PUPPY MILL/Ag INDUSTRY, THAT THEY BETRAY THEIR CONSTITUENTS, WASTE OUR TAX DOLLARS AND GLUT THEIR OWN SYSTEM

  43. Sadly, the number is closer to 4 million, when u count the ones killed at our city Animal Care and Control shelters. But I don't think it is the breeders who are causing the problem, they usually only breed once a year and don't have more than a few breeding females. IT IS THE PUPPY AND KITTEN MILLS THAT ARE GLUTTING THE SYSTEM. They are over produced and bred like food animals. THIS IS WHAT MUST STOP! And because there are so many, abuse and neglect is the norm.

  44. So wait… If I buy all the puppies and the mother and father from one family of dogs ,does that mean I killed 5 dogs? ( I got a puppy from a shelter so this is not true)

  45. Poor girl and mom thay did not known that dogs are killed at a shelter I hate puppy and kitten mills.
