    No-one needs to Lala... You just did.

    For the record. I personally have no problem with anyone breeding PROVIDING they are doing it for the right reasons, with all health testing and NOT for money.

    I am a big advocate for rescue but jmarrowsm is clearly being responsible, she is registered and getting health checks. She isn't a backyard breeder or someone who has a poodle that isnt registered but wants to mate it with a friends poodle coz "they will make cute babies"
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    I didnt do it....I dont care who breeds as long as they do it responsibly.

    How come we dont have all this great advice though when someone wants a shih tzu to put over their poodle?

    Instead they are leapt on and the "thousands of rescue dogs needing homes" is always chucked out there at them.

    That's what I was referring to.

    Because most people who want to put their shih tzu over a poodle don't do the necessary health testing and are not doing it for the right reasons as stated above "oh my dog would make such pretty puppies" or "hybrid vigour" or money etc etc

    I must admit, I was waiting for that response too... and the first person I thought would do it would be Angela (just from seeing your responses/opinions in other posts ) The way I see it... is there any need for the dog to be bred, or is the OP doing it because they can?

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    ahhh ok. So we know here that because the OPs dog has passed some tests that they arent doing it for money or pretty puppies? (OP I am not saying you are or aiming this at you so dont tak ei tpersonal).

    It seems we assume people who want to start with purebreds are doign the the right thing but with xbreeders we automatically assume the worst instead.

    Why not just post similar advice to xbreeders? That way rather than havign them storming off and doing it anyway, they think about th einformation (regarding health test and finding a good sire) and might go off and do it properly?

    IMO, advice shoud be given fairly across the board...not one way for purebreds and another for xbreds.

    Thats right, and thats another question often asked of xbreeders "why do you want to breed"...shouldnt we be asking EVERYONE this?

    If our argument is the thousands of rescue dogs needing homes then this should apply to EVERYONE who wants to breed something.

    I have made no assumptions on this particular person at all. I was just answering your questions.
    As far as I can see the OP has not stated reason for wanting to breed their poodle so could be anything including she is "cute" and think she would make pretty puppies for all I know.

    Actually people who come looking at Xbreeding get asked a lot of questions and given a lot of advice re: health testing, costs involved in breeding and homing pups, etc etc.

    Actually there is a thread going at the moment about a pregnant Bull Arab X bitch who is a farm dog and on her 3rd litter, it is a whelping thread and no one has slammed her (from what I saw of the thread anyways).

    I didnt say you made assumptions...I was making a sweeping statement about it.

    No, farm dogs seem exempt from the purpose bred cross disdain.

    I just find it odd.

    I think no one has slammed her as the dog (Sally I think) is already pregnant so theres no point in going on about the breeding crossbreeds issue.

    Also the Op in that thread has explained why the cross has been done (to produce working dogs) and as I know most working dogs on propertys are of mixed breed origins I can see her point.
    She has mentioned that both parents are great workers and all the potential puppies already have homes in working environments.

    In my opinion I put dogs bred for work in a different category then dogs bred for looks.
