One of the largest problems facing dogs or puppies in shelters is that most people search for a new dog / puppy based on breed. This is completely logical for someone because they will want a dog that will mesh well with their lifestyle, however the reason this is a problem for shelter dogs and puppies is that there is a misconception that most dogs / puppies in shelters are not purebred, or will not resemble a certain breed enough to depict their temperament. Further complicating issues for shelter dogs / puppies is often how people will search for a new dog, by breed. Searching by breed often leads one to find a breeder, and breeders are continually ignoring the the millions of dogs who end up in shelters, and are killed in shelters to support their profits.
