I bought my last 3 competition dogs from a good breeder, and don't feel the least bit of guilt about it.
My FIRST 3 dogs were a terrier mix we picked up off the side of the road during a snow storm, a siberian husky who was intercepted on her way to the pound, and a GSD who was given to me after she had been returned to her breeder because she was "aggressive, and impossible to train." That dog was my first Utility Dog. We also gave a forever home to Jake the papillon after his owners went into assisted living. So I don't feel the least bit of guilt over buying a well-breed companion from a good breeder!
