    I don't think what they are doing is actually going against the rules of facebook, just my ideals of what being a responsible pet owner entail. I was going to link it in but I don't want to bring any heat to the forum through linking it in.

    @Muttboy I'd like to think that a majority of registered breeders do the right thing, the code of ethics are there for a reason. While there are so many dog dying in pounds I don't know how anyone can support back yard breeders.

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

    Nope. Each pregnancy carries a heap of health risks for the bitch (and the puppies). So the more pregnancies the bitch has the more damage it does to her health. If you really want some insight - ask your mum how her body was after having you. And ask her how she'd be if she had 10 children or more. In the bad old days.. this used to kill women. Bred to death.

    Not starting to breed the bitch until it is over 6 years old - increases the chances of some nasty diseases like polymetra and still born puppies.

    Aaaawwww! Thank you Margoo. That was taken a couple of days after we adopted Brian, he was about 10 to 12 weeks and wearing his 'cone of shame' which gives a halo affect. The result of BYB, a coated Rottweiler, sold to despicable people who kicked him so badly his little leg was shattered. Fortunately he landed in a 'No Kill' shelter.
    Is it any wonder I get on my High Horse about BYB ?

    Funny thing I often get people asking if I'm going to breed him because they want a pup just like him. I give them the refuge number, Brian is neutered as all pet dogs should be.

    Brian as he is today.

    i am a supporter of ethical breeders that breed quality dogs, ime i have found these types of breeders to be small scale hobby breeders/enthusiasts moreso than large scale commercial breeders with fancy web sites and lots of meaningless titles.

    Poor little baby. What a sad start to his life, however he now has you to love him forever.
    You are an angel.

    what chubb said, people focus a lot on breeder ethics, why less emphasis on the owners of the dogs bred?

    Cos they don't all come here and ask about buying a puppy before they go to the pet shop or get a dog off gumtree. They usually come here after when they have all sorts of problems from house training fails, to their puppy biting them and trying to every other dog it sees.

    And sometimes because their puppy is horribly sick and fading away.

    But if they do come and ask for help - we do our best. There's quite a few threads...

    i just think it is a sad cycle that will never end and companion and other animals will always have to suffer at the hands of the "superior intellect" species, there is no solution as far as i can tell??
