Why to buy such an unhealthy breed?
Well, I think that first of all, we must love DOGS, not Dalmatians, Goldens or CKCS. And if the breed is so unhealthy and suffer so much (even if it's from a great litter, it will suffer at some point of life, more or less), why do you keep buying and wanting this breed. If it is a breed with so much pain and suffering for the DOG (which should be our main concearn), why don't we just let it be extinct and why don't we choose other breeds to buy? Why insist in something that clearly goes wrong?

I am thinking about buying a puppy myself, but after reading this post I am just wondering...why keep buying this breed?
Again, we are supposed to love dogs above anything, and if a breed is suffering so much, why continue?
Imagine if there was a "human breed" with three legs. Some people love those. But after 40 years old, that third leg causes a lot of pain, some humans die from it and some don't die, but struggle with LOTS of pain. So, why keep making humans with three legs? Because we like it? Because they look pretty? Because they are nicer? Because we want to? What about their pain? Isn't it too selfish??
I would like to know your opinions...because I'm almost buying one but I started to think those things... :(
