As a rescuer, just curious about other people's insights:

Assuming that a breeder treated all their animals well, placed them all in carefully screened loving homes (perhaps even having them neutered first), and pretending for the moment that there was no overpopulation problem:

Would anyone here consider breeding for the purpose of improving companion animals' health, through genetic screening and selection, to be a worthy cause?

I never said purebred, or for color or other superficial qualities. I wasn't actually talking about dogs anyway; I'm a rat person and there are no breeds of rats. But the issues are similar.
