Do you want a play mate for your dog or do you want to breed a litter?
Really , come on.
How can you expect me to accept let alone understand your reasoning?
You want a play mate for your dog now yes? Then whats the go with the breeding one 20 months down the track? Can you not see how that appears to other readers?
I have read and I'm trying not to assume.
I am going off exactly what you have written .
You came asking for advice on getting a playmate for your current Westie and breeding your current Westie in the future.
To look at it any other way is just not logical.
My advice is to start with your local shelter ( forgot you dont want a heinz-quite your perogative) so then start with your Breeder. They will perhaps know of an ex show dog or ex breeding dog that could possibly do the trick.There are many avenues to explore and no reason to breed a litter just because you want a play mate for your dog.
