Sounds like that needs a thread of its own!I have to say I've never heard of this "importing dogs" from other countries.
Dogs do come from other countries - we have rescues from Mexico, some of the islands, war zones, and from the meat trade, etc. That's been going on for a long time.
But the idea that there is a sinister underground going on to bring dogs in from other places on purpose in order to fill U.S. shelters? That is what I think would make for a very interesting discussion! (And note, I don't think it's necessarily untrue, but the degree to which it goes on, and the whys and hows, etc., are less clear.)
