It is really a problem of perspective and to be honest so many are bred just because people don't think it through. The person was offended but possibly that is not a very bad thing if viewed in the light of Hyacinth's post.
When Maggie was younger several people asked if I would let their dog mate with her for a litter. I didn't consider it for a moment but I had spent a lot of time on this forum absorbing and searching for information. I have a friend who mates her 2 shitzu maltese X and it mystifies me.... 3 litters in the last 12 months!!
Maybe Venom has friends who don't want to offend them, so we did... OK with that I think
