Wowzers! What are they thinking?
I was browsing through the dogs on petfinder from the neighboring counties HS and this was in the name line and it caught my eye (not for good reasons)...
Summit (Pure Bred Puggle) then if you go into his profile it gets even "better"!
Summit is a kind little guy with a trusting heart. He will warm your heart in an instant! Summit doesn't mind other cats or dogs and is definately a people person! He's quiet, calm and has even had obediance training. Summit would make a fantastic addition to your family! Summit is a pure bred "Puggle". He has his papers also.

WHAT?!?!?! As a volunteer in the shelter world I can't fathom how they heck can they be so stupid to write such things. I can't even tolerate the mixing of names, it's a gosh darn pug beagle MIX not a puggle! It isn't "pure bred" and it's papers are worthless!
I can unfortunately expect this from the general public but from people who "work" in animal rescue.... And this is not to say I don't wish the little guy a happy home but at how they "advertise" him.
Ok, sorry rant over. Thank you for letting me vent!
Save a dog... shoot a backyard breeder.

I would imagine that this was written by a volunteer who is less than knowledgeable about dog breeds. Perhaps it was purposeful to help this dog get a forever home (as people who don't know breeds can provide good loving homes). Not always bad, just embarassing.
