The hardest thing ever...

Discussion in 'The Breeding Ground' started by Mach1girl, Apr 6, 2006.

  1. "breeders" should not expect to be reimbursed for hereditary issues in a litter that, as Melanie says, should NEVER have happened in the first place.

    Welcome to the real world.

    Spay/neuter every single one, and they should be placed for a nominal fee such as $150.00 since the puppies are from untitled unhealth tested parents, and now have serious health issues.

    It is sad !! This why I had that one litter aborted... I had no idea what defects the pups would have....would have been damned ( or them ) if I'd given away and I couldn't charge for them. My own litters were very fair market prices.....

    First of all, the puppy suffered loss of oxygen DURING birth, is why she is in ths state she is. Another has an overbite, which by the way IS growing out.

    This is not a litter of genetically faulty puppies folks, this litter happens to have a few one with very much potential. So please do not twist things around.

    Second, where di price come into the equation? I never asked any opinion on what I should charge for these puppies. In all honesty, it depends on who I am talking to on the phone or in person. A price is NEVER given out until I have questioned extensivly the buyer to get an idea of what they want.If I feel this is an excellent home, and theres no bad gut feelings, and evreything checks out, I have even given one away for this!If the people arent as good as I think, I most likely wont sell, but have told them several thou just because.

    I am a beleiver that the more the pup costs, the better home it will end up in, but I know many disagree, I dont wanna go there, not arguing about it.

    I do not have a bad litter of puppies, dont accuse me, dont dis on them.

    My spay/nueter contract has warded off many so far, and is still working!

    Glad you have the contract!! Surprised the bite has corrected itself at this age, but so glad for you. I never gave a pup away ( except the one that had a problem similar to yours ) but sure didn't go from free into thousands ! My prices were firm and if I felt it was not the right time for them to get one of my pups , I'd educate them why. Most times they'd come back for later litters.

    it has not corrected itself, it has gotten better, the large dimple in the chin is getting smaller, and the tongue doesnt show anymore. Dobut it will ever be perfect, but it is on its way to gettin better.

    My contract is pretty strict, it was adopted for a humane society up north, and donated to me, my attorney went over it, wetweaked it and it is great!

    I may end up with them all! I dont care, better then some a$$ getting one. I can do it if i have to. I knew that as soon as I found out D was pregnant. Sacrifices would be made, but I am prepared.

    Besides, thing usually work out. When I worry too much, I think"I trust God to help me with this" and He always does!

    Sorry if I have offended anyones religion, but thats my belief.

    Why didnt you find homes for them before she had the puppies?
    Well, now you know it'll be easier to make a waiting list, and take deposites on puppies in the future.. I think that also gives you time to call, and meet prospecting pitty owners. See how they act around your pitties at home, you gain more confidence and feel better when the puppies actually leave you.. You know they are going to a good home, that has waited for the perfect dog.

    Raising 2 puppies is HARD WORK, and its hard to get them to obey since their rules are alot funner than yours, alot of breeders wont even give 2 puppies to the same home. Go on google and look up "raising 2 puppies" you'll find some handy/positive stuff (but also Alot of negative stuff)
    Good luck :)
