America's first dog should be pedigreed. "Mutts" are the product of irresponsible breeding, that may occur when a pet owner fails to spay or neuter, or worse, abandons, a pet.
Although puppy mills produce pedigreed dogs, and are also irresponsible, there is one source for a dog, and only one source, that promotes responsibility in breeding - the show-dog kennel.
Show-dog kennels are responsible in not breeding animals for profit. They produce puppies for the purpose of finding the next show animal, then sell the rest of the pups as pets. Show-dog kennels promote spay and neuter by placing restrictive contracts on the puppies they sell, requiring spay and neuter of the pups by a certain age, and only allowing those pups to be bred when they are of good quality, and in cases where the breeder of the pup will also practice responsiblity in breeding.
Show-dog pups are raised in home environments, well-socialized and loved. Their parents have been tested for genetic and communicable diseases. They have been given the best of nutrition and veterinary care during their growing period.
Show-dog kennels are the most responsible source for a well-adjusted pet dog, and should be promoted as such.
America's first dog should be pedigreed, from a show-dog kennel.
