Learn About Mals >> So You Want to Breed Your Dog?
Why should you take these things into consideration? Because rescue does. We clean up after poorly bred (and even well bred) litters, and take responsibility for dogs we did not bring into this world for the rest of their lives on a daily basis. We do it because we love the breed, as you should love the breed, and we do it without payment, with few resources, and without fail. Perhaps the final question you should ask yourself about breeding your dog is this: Are you willing to step up for the progeny of your dog to the same level rescue does? If not, breeding isn’t for you. The only reason to breed any dog is for the betterment of the breed, and you should breed only the puppies you can care for and are willing to screen appropriate homes for and follow up on. To do otherwise only contributes to the overwhelming pet population problem, not only by over propagating, but also by producing potentially genetically unhealthy animals in the process. Thank you for taking the time to review breeding from the perspective of a rescue.
