    KRISTOFFA what ever you learn from this forum you should educate your parents as it looks like they need it too.

    [QUOTE=KRISTOFFA;30204]Hey guys, my dog (Jack Russell) has been on heat, and this massive white fluffy dog (in pic) has been mating with her. My question is, what type of dog is he? I think he's a white German Shepherd, but Mum doesn't think so.
    Also, is it dangerous for my Jack Russell to give birth to such large puppies?

    Here are the reasons why people got up you!

    In your first post you seemed more concerned about what sort of dog the Sire was!

    Sure you asked if it could be dangerous for your Jack Russell to have the pups, but you should already know that since Vet said it was ok last time she mated with a large dog!

    You stated you wanted puppies again with your JRT, because the last ones were lovely. Are you a member of your state's canine council? Do you have a breeders prefix?

    Now you have changed your story and she is getting desexed...so what is it...desexing or another litter of puppies?!? What surprises me is that you had to go on a Forum to figure what is best for your bitch...a responsible dog owner would have know this a long time ago.

    Sure it is not your responsibility 100% to keep JRT away from males...but you were the one joining and asking questions...not your Mum. If you knew there had been a problem before with males getting to her...the responsible thing would have been to lock her away (or tell mum to sort it out)...but hey, like you said...it is not your responsibility huh?

    Now... to the GSD post. GSD's need a lot of training...socialisation...commitment etc etc. I can't understand why you would even consider getting a dog while at Uni. You can't help your Mum look after JRT...so where is that going to leave a GSD in your care?!?

    Well your first point, that's because I didn't think it was really all that dangerous for her, but now I know better. So is it okay or not, I'm getting mixed answers. She will still be getting desexed, I'm just curious.
    You realise it's not uncommon for people to allow their dogs to have pups?
    The original plan was not to have her desexed, but the people on this forum have convinced me that getting her desexed is the best thing for her, and I, in turn convinced Mum that too.
    Do you think people are born with this knowledge? No. Everybody learns somewhere, don't they? You would think that a forum full of dog lovers would be a great place.
    Why does it matter who signed up to this forum? My mum can hardly use a computer, but I don't see how that matters. I joined to ask because I was concerned. Would you rather me have not joined up at all and let her have the pups?

    I know it is not and that is why I asked...that is called BYB = Backyard breeding! It is NOT done to IMPROVE the breed...it is NOT done with the pups best interest in mind...often health testing etc are NOT done...it is done for financial purposes.

    I HATE BYB...they are irresponsible...they don't care about the breed...they don't care full stop! Can you honesty say you had a litter of puppies and did it to improve the JRT breed? Did you breed with another PB JRT? Did you do your research and got the best JRT Sire for your bitch? Are you a member of your State's Canine Council and hold a Breeders Prefix? Are you an ethical breeder?

    Okay, I didn't realise it was that big of a deal, as I'm sure most people aren't.
    She mated with a family friend's pure bred JRT. We did not have them for financial purposes, though we did sell them privately.

    Of course you didn't know.. most people don't and don't see any problems at all with putting their pets with their friends pets to make cute pups

    The reason why it's not a good idea is because you don't know the proper full lineage and if there are previous health problems on either side. They can't be registered so anyone who buys your pups that wants to breed can't trace anything back either.. then we have a whole line of JRT's that are un registered and no-one knows for sure if they are really even pure.. because there is no proof.. no papers no proof.
    The health testing etc is very expensive and registered breeders are very serious about what they do and don't take kindly to people ruining their hard work to make cute pups

    Anyway, welcome to the forum.. I hope you take Molly under your wing and learn some stuff to teach to your family. She needs someone special to look after her and I think you are the one

    The thing with a lot of people that just let their dogs have a litter, encourage it is then that so many of them end up in pounds, with owners who then again continue the cycle which ends up with so many in bad situations, on death row in pounds as there are just such ovewhelming numbers in big towns and cities.
    Out bush usually yes, homes can be found, surrender to a pound, rspca can be hours away. Many litters are simply knocked on the head, maybe one puppy kept and then the cycle continues when the bitch is in season again.

    I do have an oops litter, dog wasn't mine, split first season and too late to abort so I took on her care and that of resulting pups. To do that responsibly takes a lot of work and money for vet care, proper feeding etc which, unfortunately, many who do allow back yard litters just do not do. The bitch is just fed usual adult food, pups left to see who survives and then just given or sold to anyone who wants them with the pup's welfare, is it a good home for him/her not taken into account at all.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Thanks for that information and kind words. Although I do think we did everything right, obviously not as right as a professional breeder would have, but we got special food for her, got the pups vaccined and everything. And they were quite lovely pups But I see the problem now.

    Well she won't be having puppies again now, and I see why it would be frustrating. It really is something that is overlooked so very often.
