    I know with GSD's, if the parents haven't been xrayed and breed surveyed, you can't register the pups, I don't know if this applies to other breeds.

    GSDs - due to our breed problems and the 30 year ban - have a stricter code than most breeds. We are even getting into genetic testing now with certain blood diseases - I think youll find Fellow has been genetically tested - from memory - and is clear. You can only get the hips done at one or two places too which is a pain inthe bum - youre lucky you live near one

    All I will say is ; I personaly do not agree with BYB and I actively try to discourage it .
    However...this isn't DOL ( thank christ) and some gentle,helpful 'education' can go much further than insults and belittling.For what its worth I didn't see any anti-gay overtones in the post

    Pet-owner I'm sure you will be desexing your girl now yes ?
    Because whilst I lean towards helping instead of hanging you,I would hate to see that you would just do it all again.Esspecially when you seem such a mature,level headed adult who obviously loves her dogs. Surely you have had a look around the rest of the country and seen the thousands of poor dogs PTS every single day....surely someone such as yourself would in no way wish to condone or perhaps contribute to the problem
    I definitely don't want to breed her again, she's a good 'gal and there is no reason we'd want any more dogs in our immediate family. I've been lucky enough to experience the birth 1st hand, both parents are happy taking turns looking after their pups and our family pack is the perfect size.

    Desexing is the way to go, and I have some research questions but I'll put them in a new post if I can't find any relevant information in these forums.

    I've lived in asia on and off as a child so I've seen my fair share homeless dogs who had been beaten and scolded and I don't want to add to that issue ...

    Thanks for the offer as far as education and guidance goes. Regardless of my dog's breeding and registration status, I am making a genuine effort to interact with an established online dog community. If I wasn't interested or if I didn't see any long-term benefit then I just wouldn't bother posting anymore ...

    P.S. - I'm a "him" ... Small dogs for a guy? I don't care 'cause I love 'em to pieces.

    Hi Pugger,

    I didn't realise I could register as a breeder. I guess I didn't see myself as a "full-time" breeder as most people are here, but rather a "one-off".

    But saying that, if there are no more puppies forthcoming would it still be beneficial to "register"? The health checks I can let my vet take care of right?


    Thanks,

    No problem. Sounds like some bad luck.

    Did your dogs come to your rescue? My younger dog, annoyingly enough, nibbles my ears to wake me up ... I can just imagine regaining consciousness with no ears after being knocked out as he frantically tried to wake me up!

    Simplistic as always Occy. I didn't bred them simply because they were "cute".

    I'm just making a bold assumption here, but I'm sure some breeders (I'm not saying all) know "exactly" what happened to their pups after they have been sold. I'm sure some really terrible things happen, but I can honestly say that my dogs are happy, healthy and never go wanting ...

    pet-owner if you don't plan on selling the pups then you are neither a BYB or a breeder at all in my opinion. What you have actually done is just allowed your two dogs to mate and increased the size of your own family.

    If you don't plan on any future litters then there is no reason to register. If you plan on selling the 2 pups you have, I would make sure you do it in a ligit way starting with contacting the breeders of the dogs you have, as I am sure they will give you all the information required for doing that

    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.
