if you feel you can give 7 dogs the love they need you are sadly mistaken. A dog needs love and you can in no way give 7 dogs the love they need.
My dogs, all of my animals are very well taken care of, I am with my animals all day every day as I work at home but I do not feel the need to defend myself to you.
however as to the vet comment any vet that does not know this is not a very good vet or they just don't want to get into it with people like you and so they know when to be honest and when to just tell you what you want to hear. however the comment on the animal in the shelter how dare you. I have had 7 litters of puppies all of which went to very good very loving homes who always kept in touch with me and sent up dates picture at times. I screen my families and have been breeding for over 30 years and in those 30 years only had 7 litters so you don't know what you are talking about there.
You are sadly mistaken and your vet must be very old because now a days puppies and kittens can be fixed as early as 8 weeks old and they go on to live healthy normal lives. Any vet who tells you what you want to hear is not a good vet by my book. I have worked with my vet and other vet on spaying and neutering and not a single one has ever turned a dog away because it was to young or has not had a litter.
She has feelings they all have feelings and Motherly instinct however you will never understand this as you are one of those people who think they know everything and think that a dog is just a dog. This always upsets me people who think a dog is just a dog this is why they do not care about the animal and why the shelter's are over run it is because people do not believe in the dogs ability to be caring and loving. let me ask you what makes you the expert on who should breed and who should not. because someone asked for help you think they don't know anything and should not be a breeder.
Now you are taking what I said out of context. I never said dogs do not have feelings I strongly believe they have a soul just like an other animal but they do NOT yearn and plan like humans do to give birth and have their very own little doggie family. They know how to breed, deliver and hopefully nurse. Any emotions brought on by hormones leave once the litter is gone. My dog are my children as I do not wish to have any of the human kind.
Well first off if someone has had 7 litters of puppies I sure hope they have read EVERYTHING about raising puppies on what to expect and to expect the unexpected. Everyone should ask for help and I know I have and will continue to do so but when its a question they "breeder" should know I find it upsetting they have had puppies in the first place, be is an accident or planned.
I too believe that a dog should be fixed however only if the owner feels that is best for them I have a very hard time with all these half pit half lab half what ever dogs out there that are not wanted however that is their right as Americans to not fix their dog if they don't want too. it is not your place to decide who should breed and who should not. The breeder is not the bad person it is the family or person who takes an animal that they have no intension on loving for the life of the animal they are the ones in the wrong. or the puppy mills they too are wrong but this is America and they have a right just as you have the right to feel the way you do and i have the right to feel the way I do. but don't ever say I contributed to such a thing.
If you brought the dog into the world it is YOUR fault when it brings more to the over population. Unless you have personally had your puppies spayed and neutered how do you know they are not having puppies and then those pups are having pups and so on? Americans have lost their "right" to have unaltered dogs unless you are are an avid show person who is breeding toward a standard be it a working dog or a conformation dog to better the breed you do not need to be breeding dogs.
Next time you start talking about rights and breeding think about the MILLIONS of dogs, purebred and mixed breed, who are put to sleep because of careless 'breeders" and people who do not have their dogs fixed. I have met so many people like you who have never been to a shelters back room and seen just exactly goes on, its the uneducated people who turn over their dogs and who dump unwanted puppies.
Good on you for "rescuing" animals its not an easy job but I would think anyone who has rescued an animal would see that buy having useless puppies is just that, useless.
I'm sorry you were offended and feel the need to leave, I myself have just joined and I love to talk about things like this, I am a blunt person and can not, will not sit back when some comes along and says they breed their dogs three times before having them fixed and yet does not know what to do when one rejects a litter.
I do not know you and nor you I but I have only "had" one litter of puppies in my life time and that was a rescued Pit Bull who had 15 solid black puppies. I had NEVER birthed a litter yet being a "youngster" as you put it I knew exactly what I needed to do as this dog was a first time mother and a young one at that, I read everything that I can about dogs in every aspect of dogs. From psychology to health to training to breeding. I do know what I am talking about, if I did not I would not have said anything in the first place.
Good day and post some picture of the Poodles and the Dachshunds if you like, I'm sure they are adorable!
