I generally hesitate on ‘designer dogs’, because I think that the overwhelming majority of them are not bred for any other purpose than to produce puppies for profit. However, I disagree about the Shiba puppies that Samantha Beerman votes for (yeah, yeah, I know it’s tongue-in-cheek).
Hey, I like more stuff about our breed as much as the next dog-obsessed fanatic, but the last thing I’d like is a Shiba in the Oval Office. All of a sudden, pet shops and backyard breeders would figure that they could cash in on the sudden popularity and bam! there goes the breed. Of course our dedicated breeders would keep on breeding and educating, but it’s just something we so do not need.
