Tuckahoe, N.Y.: Why run “Least popular dog breeds” feature? You probably wouldn’t run a “least popular people” column. Dogs are a gift to humanity; we don’t deserve them.

In return for unconditional love and undeserved kindness, we put them in disgusting puppy mills and subject them to despicable breeding techniques.

Pedigrees are frequently the result of inbreeding or selective breeding, resulting in genetic problems such as epilepsy, spinal problems, heart disease, breathing and skin disorders. Dogs deserve better.
