hahah has the above said
I cannot see anything in that code of ethics that would prevent the breeder from selling or giving away that pup? Obviously not registered and desexed.
Still sux though.
My Inlaws have a Boxer who is white.
She came from a registered breeder who sold her to my inlaws undesexed and with their word that they would desex her.
They desexed her as early as possible basically but the point is what if they didnt, what if they bred her and created more white puppies? nothing was stopping them.
I think its terribly sad that this pup is getting put down but its good that the breeder is following th code of ethics given.
I commend him...its a very difficult thing to do but unfortunatly the ratio of deaf pups to not deaf pups is crazy and the need to minimize this...dallys are selectivly deaf dogs...could you imagine if he was actually deaf hahah the problems I would have.
There is a reason for every rule..some are ment to be broken...just not this one unfortunatly.
I feel terribly sorry for you and the breeder.
It's a difficult decision they have made and the right one. They have chosen to breed the best possible and it's very hard to have the time and room for those dogs that do not meet the standard. These are the hard decisions that breeders make.
As for selling a less than sound puppy health wise. I would not do it either. This is not something that an operation can fix, a reduced price won't fix it either.
Every time I take a litter to the vet I hold my breath until each health check is completed. I do not care if I sell a puppy that is less than pretty, has a prick ear or any other imperfection as far as appearances go but I would draw the line at a deaf dog.
How could you expect someone else to take this on.
