    I posted that yesterday, when I hadn't read the stuff you posted today. I was the one who was nice to you before.

    Thumbs down

    didnt want to make whole thread just for this but heres a lil story.

    i was talking to a woman about dogs, a BYB obviously! well so i found out! she had just sold a litter of puppies -she owned the mother and father and decided to keep one of the female pups.
    she told me this is good so they will have another girl to breed from!
    WHAT?! does this mean she will mate it with its father?! ..

    THEN she went on to say something about finding another male or something so they was a kind of relief... SORT OF. ... but then she said that we should stay in contact when the new girl has her first litter, which will be her first season, approx september this year .....the dog was only born end of last year [nov or dec]!! she will still be a pup!

    surely they're suppose to be at least 2 years old?! for maturity and such , to be pregnant!

    Hi folks,
    I'm new in here and have only had a quick scan through the thread - a bit of food for thought regardless of registered breeder or BYB - I know most are adverse to early spay/neuter - as am I - but I simply won't have it done until at least 2yo unless it is medically necessary. Why not consider tubal ligation and vacectomy prior to homing - most vets will do it if the pup is 1kg or more. No chance of breeding without the negative problems associated with early spay/neuter or the risks associated with such extensive surgery at such a young age.

    Surgery time is significantly reduced therefore less anesthetic, fewer stitches, less anxiety. The difference in the long term - early age spay/neuter are known to increase the incidence of hyperthyroidism, genital malformation in bitches, incontinence in bitches, increase hip dysplasia among other problems.

    Anne - I'm not here for a "pissing" competition. If you believe there is no significant difference in the surgeries that's your right. However, you may like to discuss your beliefs with the scientists and vets who conducted the studies...

    I simply put it forward for others to consider as an alternative to homing animals capable of breeding.

    I would actually like to hear more about the options you are putting forward. I have a young male pup (who will never ever be bred from and is already desexed) and I'd like to know more about the possible damage that I could be looking at when he's older. As the old saying goes, forewarned is forearmed.

    Could you please explain
