Dog Breeding Rant
My father and step mother are planning on breeding their 2 year old brindle boxer to some other brindle boxer because they got a free breeding and they want to 'make money'.
Their vet advices against it as do I. They are under the impression that the dog will carry the pups for 9 months like people. They are relying on google for all their breeding right now and enlisting me to tell them how to do it. I am not.
I have mentioned getting the bitch's hips xrayed before breeding and they refuse. They do not think it will cost anything because the breeding is free. They are ignoring food for mom and pups, vet care during the pregnancy, emergancy fees, shots for the dogs, etc.
They say "they will all go to good homes and if we sell them for $600 a dog, then that's easy money!"
Obviously they have it in their head to breed and I can't change that. Hopefully they will just screw up and she won't catch.
My head is going to explode.
