    Lee's friend (lets call him "A") is friendly with a guy who breeds English Bull Terriers, "A" often walks these english bull terriers, and he invites lee,shadow and I to go along. We've been twice, I figured the more dogs she socialises with the better! She wont be going again, the dogs are viscous (sp) and keep going for shadow. But thats not what I want to rant about.

    When we'd finished the walk we went back to this breeders house, he invited us in to see his new litter of puppies. He has maybe 5 adult dogs, and 6 or 7 11-15week old pups already, aswell as this new litter of 2week old pups. They are all kept in cages in the back garden, seem largish, have enclosed areas where they sleep, and its all heated and lighted (apart from the 2week old pups who are kept inside).

    As we entered the house the wife warned us that the mother of the puppies would probably growl at us because she was mental. She told us they call this dog "psych-bitch" because she's so nasty. They have just bred this female!! they have knowingly bred a female who is known to have temprement problems, I couldnt believe it! I has to bite my lip to stop from saying something. The wife then went on to say how she couldn't wait for the female (mother) to go cos she was "doing her head in".......but wait it gets worse. She then told us how this nasty female escaped form their garden last week, she got out of the conservatory, and ran after this man walking a little dog, and the woman said, "I looked, and then I went and hid in the kitchen, I knew I couldnt do anything to stop her so I just left her" at this point there must have been steam coming out of my ears, because them wife looked at me and stopped talking, I had to leave at that point, I was fuming!! :mad:

    I cannot believe these dispicable, irresponsible people are allowed to continue to breed these animals! I dispise both these people, the breeder asked me the other day what I fed shadow, I told him, and he was sooo patronising, he was like "oh whats that, one of those dinner types" I was going to reply "I dont feed that type of crap to my dog" but I didnt, im too polite I suppose.

    These people make my skin crawl, and I just neede to rant about them, sorry.

    Yup, I agree. My sister has a dog, yet she wants to breed it. She knows nothing about dogs, and doesn't even know how to train it properly. I said to her don't do it because it's wrong, but she says she wants the money. :( If she goes ahead with it, I am reporting her to the RSPCA.

    This sort of thing just really annoys me, along with people who have dogs, yet treat them like crap. :(

    By the way, I think you should report that breeder to the authorities.

    Ohhh I feel for those poor pups and dogs. They bred this female knowing full well she has problems, well that is just plain ignorant.

    Sigh !!! If we can do anything on this forum it's to not breed because they have a cute pup, not breed to make a buck ( which you won't do if you do it correctly ) etc. Yes. in my years of breeding I may have made some money ...but it all went into my golden fund..to test my dogs, buy special meds etc, and nothing for me. Vetting, screening, etc etc etc......I guess I can say my dogs helped support themselves ... I still ended up with 0 % ...it was all for my dogs.

    I posted this above......but i felt I needed to post it agian.

    I see that most if not all of the people here are very passionate about their fids. I know I am brand new to the board and didn't really represent myself as I should have the first few posts, but I wish this whole breeding tread would disappear. It seems that the majority here may have purebreds (I do too, from a shelter). But the whole breeding thing gets my hackles up and I am seeing it's getting others hackles up as well. I understand freedom of speech, and respect that, but from what I can see here, most "animal people" don't respect the concept and are not in favor of it.

    I could see having a pure-bred section, (and discussing training, behavior and temperments of certain breeds) but "the breeding ground" sounds like a doggy orgy for profit. Just my 2 cents....

    What do you mean?

    animalbiz, Im not sure what your point is? You dont like this section of the Forum?

    I was just posting about an unscrupilous breeder, who obviously doesnt care about his dogs, and it really bothered me. The concept of breeding doesnt bother me, not if its for the betterment of the breed, but people who breed just for money, they do bother me.
