Adopting is like dating, and shopping is like arranged marriage. Buying a puppy from a breeder is not like arranged marriage where the person is an adult? Well, where I come from, the recommendations and selections were made with a resume and my aunt vouching for the man’s personality based on their parents’ personality where my aunt has possibly never met the man. So, yeah, arranged marriage is just like buying a puppy from a breeder.
Surely they both have pros and cons.
What I don’t understand is, though, with the human world shifting more and more toward meeting and dating, not set-ups and arranged marriages, pretty exclusively in the area I’ve lived in, why are people still buying dogs from breeders?
