Both (probably) purebred, both found stray and in poor shape ending up at our county, high-kill, shelter.
When I did buy and breed purebred dogs I did so because I believed I had bloodlines that needed to be preserved and improved for that breed. I wouldn't do it now, but wouldn't condemn a breeder who is responsibly managing his or her "gene pool". Puppy/kitten mills, obviously, excluded, and that by extension includes the pet store and flea market trade.
I think everyone here is basically an advocate for the animals and has their best interests at heart. We can all learn from each other, and being hasty with a post could drive away a reader who might otherwise stay, add some wisdom, and gain some wisdom. Peace, y'all!
