Michelle Obama Talks Dog
A shelter mutt in the White House? About as likely as a biracial president with an African name. Hmmm. I may be jumping ahead by imagining Kongs in the Oval Office, but one thing is now for sure: When Malia and Sasha Obama get their post-election pup, they’ll adopt that lucky dog from a shelter, rescue or foster situation. No pet stores or breeders for them. That's good judgment.

I do commend the Obama's for planning to rescue their future pup..but I don't think implying that those who choose to get a dog from a responsible, reputable breeder is bad judgment. I consider myself a good, responsible dog owner who happened to get hers from a breeder. I spent months researching and looking for what would fit my lifestyle, criteria, etc. and fell in love with a dog whose breed I could not find in rescue (I did look). He's an uncommon breed, and even finding/screening a breeder with puppies took time and luck. His breed is even considered vulnerable and I am glad there are still fantastic breeders out there carrying on the lines.
While I am planning on rescuing my next dog, I certainly don't regret going through this process with a breeder to find my best friend.
