    Puppy mill dogs get health checks from the pet store vets too
    Doesn't really look into the issue the puppy will have when it's older.
    As I have said, if getting a mutt, why not get one from an accidental mating or from rescue rather than filling people's pockets with money and encouraging them to keep breeding from dogs with no known heritage or bad genes?

    BTW, the health checks look for obvious issues like cleft palette in the puppy and mange.. that's about it.
    They will treat worms and fleas if they have them (often the case with puppy mills and BYBers) and then give them the tick of approval.
    It's much different to the health checks on adult breeding dogs of pure bred breeders.

    I really feel like this is going in circles.. the same things have been repeated over and over.
    Considering just closing it now.. all questions have been asked and answered a dozen times.

    Yes I fully agree with that, because each ovum can get fertilised by a different sperm...Possible to be more than 2 dogs even.

    I have rung my friendly vet, he is a friend..... he agrees with me, not possible. he did tell me that it it is a historical old wife's tale, still pushed around by a lot of Breeders. I am still trying to find something on the web, going either luck. only my trusty old books here, How to Breed dogs, Leon E Whitney and the anatomy of dog breeding, plus a few others

    I can only find Leerburg in a Q&A saying the same thing, but it won't cut and paste

    Nah, Natty, Pugger just wanted to clarify some info;

    If a bitch is mated to more than one dog during one heat, the offspring thrown can be from two different sires... And thus be genetically different.

    However, this will not impact future litters. Assuming the bitch is then bred to a single male in a subsequent heat, the offspring will only contain genetic material from the current sire.

    I suspect the 'ruining the bitch for later litters' is an old wives tale to discourage inter breed breeding. Obviously, if one is a registered breeder, then a) it is NOT a good look to be cross breeding and b) Is HIGHLY likely to negatively impact a breeders reputation for future pure breed matings/ obtaining a sire of good standing.

    Hope that clarifies for everyone.
