    Well said on both points.
    People get dogs, puppies or rescued dogs, for the wrong reasons and when it doesn’t work out – the child gets tired of it or it won’t stop peeing on the carpet – they think it’s somebody else’s fault or responsibility to deal with it.

    I wonder if the number of dog related TV programmes has contributed to the increase in the problem. Motivating people to give a home to a dog is good but not if people don’t know how much hard work is involved.

    As for puppy farms, they thrive because most people think they shouldn’t buy anything at all unless it’s cheap – that’s the smart way to shop, regardless of ethics or animal welfare.

    I think you need to keep telling people the truth when they’ve messed up. Especially if they don’t want to hear it.
