    For some people they love the showing, history ,memorabilia etc & having dogs of that breed around but it doesnt really matter which dogs.

    I love my dogs for themselves , I could probably replace them with "prettier" dogs but I would never have that little personality back again.
    I totally agree - both of mine have very different personalities and I wouldn't swap them for the world. In fact over the years all my dogs have been individuals, which is what makes them such lovely pets.

    I really couldn't imagine re-homing them unless there were extreme circumstances that meant I couldn't keep them any more. And then I'd have to vet the new homes sooooooo well.

    If I ever had the privilage of having pups they would not be a burden !
    when I did rescue I felt I was responsable for every dog that I dealt with for the rest of its life & I didnt even breed them !
