Thank goodness there are more capable people out there besides yourself.ashram said:Im all for breedin I have tried re-homeing dogs from shelters and it just does not work Well never has for me. At least this way your family and freinds know exactly what type of begining there little ones will have. and will be able to see them untill they are ready to go.
I have homed dogs from shelters and I would never do it again. They get so used to just pooping were they like that no amount of retraining can work some times. I've lost count of the amount of knitting I had to get rid of oh and shoes and bedding due to lovely big parcels.
I done everything to retrain one of my dogs but it just did not work. Then there are the ones that become so close to one owner of the house that the minute your child or hubby comes near you well they wont the teeth marks in the but are just not worth it. I now only buy from breeders or from freinds I know what I am getting then and I will not even consider housing an older dog now.
Your dog looks wonderful looks like about 8 in there I would say. :dancing_b
CoAl-s-Mom said:What does proven breeder mean? That he can impregnate a bitch? None of your reasons are valid for breeding. Doberman rescues will often adopt out to neighboring states. I do hope that you spay and neuter the puppies before placing them or before you know it there will be plenty of Dobermans in your area. Shame on you. Now more Dobermans in rescue will just sit there or die because you just have to have a litter for your friends.
Doesn't change the facts.Lexus said:Okay now........touchy subject.... Take it easy... She wan't advertising her pups for sale or pushing byb, just wanted a little weight advice.
Oh STFU, yes she should have had testing but will you lay off of her, what if someoen told you you couldnt have kids, cuz they might have bad health problems cuz your mother had bad heart problems or you might end up in an ophanage, as long as the Dogs shes breeding are healthy and physically sound then she can do what she wants, she already has homes for most of em anyways so shut up and mind your own business, your being too drasticCoAl-s-Mom said:Doesn't change the facts.
I will not sit by and pat someone on the back for doing this breed a disservice. I have owned and loved this breed for 15 years and it deserves better.
Her dog is only 2 years old. No genetic testing was done on the dam and I'm sure not the sire either. She has no idea what kind of health problems those puppies could have down the road. She's not going to spay and neuter and before you know it all the puppies are breeding and all the health problems just continue. It has to stop somewhere. This breed has enough problems with out more people adding to it just because their friends want a pup.
Lets say that she has 8 puppies and sells them. That is 8 rescues that don't get a home.
Wrong is wrong.
You know what, I have been pregnant 2 times and they do testing to test for genetic defects. I had all the testing done to ensure my babies would be healthy.Gunner said:Oh STFU, yes she should have had testing but will you lay off of her, what if someoen told you you couldnt have kids, cuz they might have bad health problems cuz your mother had bad heart problems or you might end up in an ophanage, as long as the Dogs shes breeding are healthy and physically sound then she can do what she wants, she already has homes for most of em anyways so shut up and mind your own business, your being too drastic
