I have mentioned before I have a friend who keeps breeding litters from her Maltesex Shitzu pair. Sells them with no trouble for $600 - $700, depressing.
She just told me the poor bitch has had another litter. She is looked after, but heavens there must be some way to say something to make her think!.
I am totally ignorant about breeding and want to have an informed word with her. How many litters should a bitch have? What is the humane protocol that a normal breeder would follow. I have tried the line of how do you know what happens to them? and what if there are issues? She just says there have been no problems so far!
She is not a nasty person she just doesn't get it!! She just proudly messaged me to say there are another six just been born. At least one a year and I actually think it is less than that since the last litter. I do not understand why she thinks it is OK.
There is no point being offensively blunt as it won't stop it and I want to save the poor bitch the next litter and diplomacy will work better anyway.
I think she actually sees herself as a successful breeder and doesn't see the big or even medium big picture at all.:
