Puppies
by: Donna

The first question would be why do you want her to have puppies? Is it in your contract with your breeder that you will be using her to breed? If so, this is a discussion you should be having with the breeder. The breeder will be able to answer your questions and be a mentor to you.

It's a huge responsibility and expense to bring puppies into the world. Copy and paste this URL into your browser to learn more about breeding.

Know that the shelters are full of unwanted dogs and thousands are euthanized every year because no one wants them.

Don’t breed unless there is a need
by: Anonymous

I am also curious about why you would breed? I have a gorgeous white polar bear lol PYR. She is a wonderful dog but very very big! I ended up with her because someone thought oh I leant one of those! At 6 months and 75 pounds and no evidence of training they were ready to dump her in the pound. That’s when I stepped in and brought her home. She is 2 now, generally obedient, we have a deutsch drahthaar and she is super obedient. She is also around 140-150 and is 30in at shoulder. She is a whole lotta dog and hair. Sporting her winter coat is absolutely majestic and everyone loves her. In the dictionary under gentle giant you will see her there. I spayed at adoption. I have no intention of ever breeding although she seems to be of excellent stock. I am not a proponent of breeding unless a specific need arises for that breed. People are often heartless and fickle about dogs. I’d never trust a stranger with one of my puppies simply for the reason I ended up with my PYR. I wish you well and I hope that your intentions are noble with respect to breeding. Dogs are not commodities, they are family!
