and what percentage are oodles do you think?
I reckon next to none because once an oodle hits the shelter you have a line up of gullible people who snap them up... $5k dog at a few hundred, plenty of people will grab that deal that have fallen for the marketing but can't afford to buy a puppy from a dodgy breeder.
Its like any small or family friendly dog, they're usually the ones not sitting in shelters. Those get snapped up quick and some shelters have to sift applications for dogs to pick the right home. Those who stay in shelters a long time are mixed breeds made up of two+ undesirable breeds that won't suit many people.... "don't shop adopt" isn't always the best answer for alot of people given the selection available and it would be irresponsible to take on a dog that the owner can't handle just for the sake of rescuing because it will end up back there, neglected or put down anyway. Stopping those who aren't registered breeders from breeding their dogs and making it law to desex to start with would reduce shelter numbers.
