    I do not agree with that. If their is an issue then the breeder needs to help in some way. Not stand there and go not my problem.

    Yes they should help - but you cant expect breeders to take back all of their owners mistakes. Rescue is different - this isn't rescue - this is stupid owners.
    Yep I totally agree with this.

    Why? This dog isn't going to help promote the breed. Breeder could take it back and do what the owners are too gutless to do but otherwise what exactly do you expect from them

    This wasn't bad breeding, it was a lack of proper socialisation and development in the key stages of learning - NOT the breeders fault.

    If this dog was dumped in a pound - different story - but this dog is with the owners and it is their responsibility

    when I buy a dog I dont buy it to keep with clauses. I buy it and it becomes my responsibility. The only reason breeders should help with rescue is that the owner is often untraceable or a complete degenerate

    Hi All..

    I'm just curious about something... what if the dog in question was a restricted, banned, or Bull Breed, what would peoples answer be in regards to a dog biting or attacking children eg: rehabilitate, re-home or PTS ??????

    IMO i think that most people would say PTS if the dog in question was any of the above mentioned breeds.

    IMO you're right - but probably for a different reason than you think

    If a bull breed had done what this beagle had done, would the damage have been the same?

    I am not saying that the breeder needs to take the dog back - I am saying that the breeder needs to help these people with the right methods and be a sounding board for them - not that they sold the pup and now it is not their responsibility to help any more.

    I don't agree with the way the owners have handled the 'problems' but I also don't agree with how the breeder went about it.

    I think it's a case to case thing Aussie_Floyd. If it was the exact same situation as posted, I would have the exact same response.

    If it was me I would be saying exactly the same things I am saying now.

    Excellent post IMO.

    Some breeders these days will make a genuine offer to take the dog back at any stage of it's life should the owner not want it, or be unable ot care for it in some way or form. I think this is exemplary for those breeders who choose to do this, but I don't think that means all breeders must do this, or even could do it.

    This dog is several years old. The dominance over the child was not dealt with in the best way from what I can gather. The owners probably did what they thought was right, not knowing any better way of dealing with the issue. That's the saddest part of all.

    But the bottom line is this dog has bitten a child. That is serious indeed.

    Yeh sad but true.
    I mean I personally will take back any of my babies no matter how old or anything. But I can do that with the amount of room I have here.
    BUT I can not understand why this breeder will not even talk to them! Thats just rude!

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.
