Dew Claws
by: Donna

The parents were not purebred if no papers were provided. You have no proof saying they were full Pyrs other than they are white. Did the parents have double dews on both hind legs. It doesn't sound like they are full Pyr.

If can be a one off if one pup has a single dew but when they all do, there is another white in the mix.

Is there a reason you are breeding?

The shelters are full of unwanted dogs. There are pups in there, too. 2 million dogs are euthanized in the States every year and 600,000 in Canada.

How don't you know
by: Ed A from NJ

I have to ask how did it come to be you don't know? The female is yours. You don't know who she bred with it makes this sound like you are an non-responcable breeder.

Do you have all the puppies home already. Good breeders don't even breed until they have a good waiting list for the puppies. This is exactly the kind of breeding Donna is talking about.

You have no idea what you have there. No way to know, there temperament or what they will grow,up to be. I hate to say,this but you already proved yourself to be not responsible as a dog owner. Do us all a favor be responsible enough to care for the little loves you allowed to be born into this,world.

You now have commitments to deal with in the way of vet visits, and finding homes. Then as soon as safe have your girl spayed.

We all pay for your bad decisions or should I say non-commitment. As far as what the puppies are, that is simple. They are innocent little victims of your lack of commitment.

Breedings
by: Donna

Thanks, Ed.

It happens so often. People don't know how much work raising pups is. They don't realize how it important it is to know the lineage of their dogs to endeavour to get the best temperaments and health.

They don't realize you need to spend pretty much 24/7 with those pups for 8-weeks. Socialize and handle them by many many different people to ensure good canine citizens.

Taking mom and pups to vet for vaccinations and checkups. It is very expensive which is why ethical breeders charge what they do.

And, then, rescues see the results of unethical breeding as the shelters and rescues fill up with unwanted dogs. Cute as pups but so many people don't understand the work involved and get 'rid' of them.

Why the ridiculing ?
by: Anonymous

People should be allowed to ask a simple question without all the ridiculing, "bad breeder" comments. A dog had puppies. Period. She asked a question. Why is the dog community so high and mighty?

We live on a farm and have lots of animals. A dog is a dog. They breed sometimes. It doesn't make anyone a bad person. Geez, leave all the hate on the political campaign and let people ask a simple question.
