    Can you try even popping away $10 bucks a fortnight at all?

    Don't know where you live, some cities have clinics with programs to help de-sex dogs in that situation.
    Im nto really comfortable discussing my personal situation, but i had no choice as i was feeling cornerd and intimidated..

    I will start saving after im done saving $1200 for rego, and $1100 for the wheels i had to get under finance..

    once again im not looking for sympathy also not a social backlash

    Your "cornered and intimidated" is my "being honest." I'm sorry if you felt that way, but your feelings are just that - yours.

    This IS a dog forum Black. We are all serious dog lovers. I'm not saying you're not too, but we take responsible dog ownership VERY seriously indeed.

    Ppl on here bust their guts day in and day out working tirelessly for nothing to fix the problem's that your sort of situation can help cause. Please don't give us a guilt trip for your issues.

    I understand that, but as DA (and I think GAG?) said earlier, you could end up in more financial strife. I use this example on countless occasions, I have been involved with a $6,000 emergency C-section to have all but one puppy die. And this was a planned responsible breeding/pregnancy.
    I understand if you had the money it would be a different situation, but really, this has to be on the top of your priorities, especially when you have a bitch im assuming in the same house.
    We arn't trying to scare you away, everyone makes mistakes and learns from them. We have well-liked members that have been given a beating by the forum when they first joined.
    You'll learn heaps.

    At the end of the day, my words are just pixals on a screen, i dont intend on giving anyone a guilt trip..

    I apologise for offending anyone.. and most of all i apologise for lex,
    so from now on.. i will feel un welcome if i continue to post on this forum, even if this matter is dealt with.. so can a mod please lock this thread, and ill be on my way..

    Yes i know i sound/look like a huge drama queen.. but i cant say it any other way.

    Why should the thread be closed. You, nor anybody else here has not broken or violated any forum rules.

    The advice Myf has given you is sound.

    Others have also suggested you try and find a free clinic. That is VERY helpful advice IMO.
    It now makes sense of the fact that you have not done any obedience training as such with a professional school.
    Now that we know the reasons, it can help us to guide you in the right direction. There is no point us all giving you names of places, ppl, if you can't afford it. There's also no need to be embarrassed about it. That is life, **** happens.

    But you have got a dog, and you need to find ways to do what is right. No matter how long it takes.

    You know what, with this forum a little bit of info goes a long way, I do understand about not wanting to disclose stuff like that, and how you may feel embarrassed, but at the end of the day we will try to help as best we can, and if that means pointing you to where you can get Lex desexed cheaply, then we can try.

    Look, I might not be in debt, but I probably average about the same income as an age pensioner from what I read the other day - it's not much, and I have 4 dogs of my own plus another permanent doggy resident, 2 doggy fosters and a horse! I don't have money to spend on myself, or very rarely.

    I know you feel cornered, but there are many of us here that work in rescue and see the results first hand of what happens when dogs aren't desexed. That's why we get so frustrated, because we are passionate.
