I am sure all your beautiful pure bred dogs have better manners than the lot of you. congratulations guys! you have made me proud to be a so called idiot!!

    Luckily the Rspca mutilates all their dogs before they leave.

    I think anyone who breeds hasn't seen the rescue/shelter side of breeding. I'm sure a lot of people would reconsider if they did.

    I've done rescue for many years and my next pup will be a show dog and if he is good enough he will be used as a stud dog - so please Sharoo - for the love of whatever you may happen to believe in - don't try and feed us that garbage.

    Most people who breed good quality dogs do so to better the breed. Most people who simply breed dogs - x breds and BYBs - breed to make money - not for the love of the animal nor for any gain aside from the monetary.

    Shame on those who promote the needless breeding of x bred dogs - the pounds are choked with your designer dogs and your pig dogs and the like.

    I owned a GSD x who I adored without fail - Sandy was adored by all who met her. I rescued a lovely heeler x JRT last year too - not my cup of tea to keep but a darn nice little dog. Most of my rescue gsds have been BYB dogs too! So don't even try the breedist garbage on me

    Let's look at renbury today - one of the biggest shelters in aus

    whatever, i thought this forum was to talk about dogs, not verbally bash, and call stupid anyone with a differing opinion to you. I was of the oppinion that internet bullying (IN ANY FORM) was illegal and against the user agreement on entry to this forum! Think before you say people! just because you are not saying these things to someones face does not give you free rein to say whatever you wish. grow the hell up.

    Occy I was referring to BYB.
    I don't have a problem with responsible registered Breeders.
    I think you mis-understood me because I read your post and I totally agree with everything you wrote. That list sums up perfectly what I was trying to say!

    I should have been more specific and said anyone who BYBs, but when I read the thread I thought it was just about it iykwim...

    NP Sharoo - just a misunderstanding on my part. I still think that post is telling. Of those pure breds you can bet only one or two come from registered breeders.

    Far as I understand it I have abused no one in this thread - I have stated my opinion and my reactions to some of the ludicrous comments made by deej*insert some numbers*

    But...Like...OMG...whateva...

    LLLLLOL!

    I have absolutely nothing wrong with registered responsible breeders as they are breeding for a purpose, to better the breed.

    Ahhhh, I feel at home and I only joined today. This is exactly too what happens on my bird board but that is OT.

    We are breeding our blue heeler bitch (unintentially, but it happened) That is in another post here in another board.
    We bred 15 years ago too.
    We choose a sire from farmers around us who's dogs have the traits we want.
    We breed to replenish our own working dogs.
    We do not sell pups, after deciding which ones we keep the others are given to farmers we know, who know our dogs and we know the types of people they are. If someone is unknown they go through the 3rd degree. lol
    We have a great vet.

    This time things did not go as planned.
    Pretty (blue heeler) is pregnant from first season, she was segregated from the male blue heeler.(unrelated)
    Illness and pain prevented my Father in law noticing she had a split(?) first season.
    It was planned to breed her at about 3 years of age, NOT 1. errk.

    I can appreciate that many would bash us for the lack of attention, I am too. Pretty resides with my father in law about half the time and half here, (3km away and she was segregated here the first time)

    Whether he decides to desex after this or breed her again in a few years will be up to him. He usually gets females and this has never happened before as they were either successfully segregated or desexed if he did not need them for breeding. As I said the last time any were bred for the farm was 15 years ago and there have been 2 bitch working dogs, unbred in that time frame.

    I have already contacted the vet, know what he wants and when, have been given the knowledge of complications that could occur, what to look for. just in case.

    So, yep, I am a byb I guess.

    Ok this is where I get confused.
    My grandfather owns a sheep farm and never has, but knows people that breed their own working Kelpies. These people arn't registered and sell/give the dogs to people they know(family, friends, neighbouring farms) who want to use them as herders. I will say, a lot of the dogs around where these farms are arn't microchipped or visit the vet until they need it.
    I cant make up my mind on this. Its so so different to those in more suburban areas, but its still going against everything I believe.
    These dogs DONT end up in shelters/pounds because the people that buy them need them to work, not just as pets. They breed the best workers with the best workers rather than healthiest with healthiest.
    I dont know, maybe you guys will have more of an opinion on this.
