This whole thread is upsetting. There will always be people that don't know better. I don't understand the mentality. One poster on another thread said something great. She was wondering about cost of SM because she is going to get a rescue. She said she knew what she was getting into and the cavalier would have health problems either way. Thank you! She was not BUYING a cavalier from a breeder that contributes to the problem, but is a special person to rescue a cavalier that who knows what background they had. So I don't understand. I have that option for my next cavalier or if I buy a puppy, it will be from a breeder that I spent time researching. I know about health problems and how to find a breeder. If I overlooked this and bought a cheap cavalier or one I could get right now, then I would be part of the problem and I would not do that.
