If current trends continue, pretty soon there could be an international dog rescue shelter in a neighborhood near you. In India and China alone (never mind the rest of Asia, Africa, and South America) there are more than 70 million street dogs waiting for American groups to rescue them. And although they may be sold for more than a healthy, well-bred and socialized American dog, there are plenty of Americans ready to pay whatever it takes to save one of them. If this continues, Americans will no longer have to maintain breeding programs or produce even one dog.
