I want a female puppy (a lab i think) but I don't want it fixed so we can have puppies. Does every place like human society and places like that MAKE you get them fixed or will they give me the choice if it isn't done already?
(Save your breathe, or should I say finger energy, I want to have puppies, and I won't get it fixed for a few years.)

Not all breeders require you to get them fixed in your contract....but it might cost you more. When we bought our Boston Terrier, had we not agreed (in our contract with the breeder) to neuter him, he would have been $1000 instead of $600.

I truly believe unless you are using or working that dog in the field they are bred for--you should NOT being breeding them--regardless of how cute or how much money you can make. Unless you know how to train and work a Labrador for hunting--why breed them? Or you are an experienced showman--why breed? Unless you have top breeding stock--why add to the population and the degrading of the breeds? I trained our Lab and she was an excellent hunter but I never would have bred her. I just hate to see so many people breeding dogs who have no clue what the breed is about----or even how to chose good breeding stock in order to keep the breed what it was meant to be. Our pounds are full of "good family dogs"--why breed more just for "family dogs"?

Pet Shops are a good example of backyard breeders "dumping" the litters they just wanted so much to have--for whatever reason. Don't breed a dog UNLESS you have a good background in that breed and have good stock to breed. Also known as a reputable breeder! You become one by knowing your breed, possibly making a name in that breeds circles whether that is the field or show ring.....but just to breed a dog to have puppies--I am sorry--that is selfish. I have raised and trained an excellent lab and three border collies and I would still never think I should breed them!!! So please really consider WHY you want to breed a dog and don't add to the overpopulation.
