From what I read on her other post, she just got him Friday.
Dont you think it would be a better idea to neuter him? There are already hundreds of dogs getting put down every day because they dont have homes... I dont see the point in creating more puppies.
If you neuter him, he will be a much better companion. And just because he was a stud before doesnt mean he still has to be one... PLEASE get him fixed!
Good post, please listen. Total agree with everything. There is no reason to become a byb just because whoever had this dog before was doing so. It seems odd for any respectable breeder to get a dog and just come into a pet driven forum to say pass along these details.
So I agree with all except for the "much better companion". My intact boys are wonderful companions, no less then neutered boys. I've not found my altered ones to be better companion then my intact ones.
Who here buys from pet stores and keeps them in business?
Especially ones who come from horrid conditions...
...or who has adopted all of their animals...
Sometimes people need to look at their own choices...
For the first question - Not me, especially wouldn't buy a dog from a pet store if thats what you mean. Not all pet stores sell animals, some just have leads, food, toys, ect. I prefer to order most of my products because it is cheaper or buy them at shows sometimes support other vendors.
For the last question again not me. Most of my dogs are from breeders although I didn't pay for many of them so its not like keeping some breeder "in business". The last dog that I did actually buy from a breeder was a reputable one IMO. They were not breeding for money, just to breed without rhyme or reason, ect. They had previous happy buyers, health testing, titles/tested for work, good temperaments, nice pedigree, contract, health guarantee. I'm not anti breeder. There are big differences from one breeder to the next.
My cats are all feral, strays or dumped off here.
Goats did come from a breeder also I'd guess you'd say, but then he was quitting the goat breeding business. They are considered livestock anyway, their purpose is to be bred for profit by most people. He actually sold them at very reasonable price considering their value. Could have made more $ taking them to auction too if only wanted to make $. Regardless I wouldn't expect someone to just give away all their goats from a successful breeding program. Oh and few were actually just given away by their owners because they got them more as pets but then didn't want them when they grew up and couple even abandoned like how people abandon a dog.
