It's depressing reading about all the dog aggression

And dog bites. And attacks.
Anyone else feel this way?

alot of joe public think dogs come trained, they get a dog, and don't want to put the time into socializing/training making them become good citizens.

Also genetics can play a part, but some people are just lazy now a days when it comes to putting 'into' dog what you want 'out' of a dog. Sad because in the end the dog pays , and this is such a throw away society, it's easy to just go out and get another one

You wanna know what's even more depressing? This right here:

I have 2females left that are currently 4 weeks old i have started letting them go to good homes, There is a rehoming fee of 250 for the females, the parents do not have papers i adopted them from different families and they didn't have the papers, i dont really have the money to get them the shots they need right now, so they will be ready to get thier shots at 6 weeks and will be the responsiblity of the person adopting the puppies. The Dad is just like you see in the picture he is a dark brown with lighter brown and the mom is black and tan




And yeah, the two phenomena are related.

^ Correct, and it's sad. I've seen several Craigslist ads of people wanting to "rehome" their "problem dog" because they "have issues." I'm like, really? The problem isn't the DOG, people..

Yes, that is depressing, but when I come to this board and read about so many aggression issues, I find it very upsetting. I know some are new folks looking for help, but some are long-time board members, as well.
