*rant* why do so many dismiss contacting the breeder.
I just don't get it! My first question when someone brings up a full bred dog of any flavor is, "has anyone contacted the breeder?". So many times I get a response of oh no... breeders are bad. I get that there are unethical and bad breeders out there but not all are. If there is even the slimmest chance that contacting the breeder will lead to a rescue of the dog why are so many against it?
