Not only do dog shows kill shelter dogs' chances of finding a good home, they also can lead to suffering for the animals forced to participate in them. Many "breed standards" require dogs to be mutilated by having their tails docked or their ears cropped.

This petition means a lot to me.
I have seen how pure bred dogs get over bred. And how "clicks" were formed at dog shows. I had 4 Rhodesian Ridgebacks. I showed one about 5 times. I bought my first dog from a woman that had around 30 RR's for $700. a very long time ago. I am sure they are selling for well over $1,000. now. The clicks, the over breeding, the behind the scene BS. They show to breed to get more money out of the puppies. Huge amounts of dollars. Back yard breeders is what these breeders call each other. They are aloud to breed grandfather to granddaughter, uncle to niece. Anything but parent to son/daughter.

I will only adopt at a shelter.
