  • Don't breed when there are already so many homeless dogs in shelters dying every day!

  • Dogs do not have any want/need to be mothers the way that humans do...they could care less! Please have her fixed. Poor baby!

  • Animals dont have babies for the emotional fun of it. They do it to keep their species going. They dont have an attachment to them like we do with our kids. It's completely different. And we dont naturally have 8 kids (naturally!), raise them for 8 weeks and send them on their way.

  • And dont even say its for your dog to experience motherhood because you're going to sell them for as much money as you can get off them. Have fun with that. You're going to realize real quick that having a litter of puppies is expensive. You have to get them all to the vet, get their first rounds of shots and be prepared to deal with any health issues that come along. Mom may even have issues with labor that may require a C Section. Then there's the extra food expense because a nursing mother needs to eat even more and then when you start weaning the pups to solid dog food....it adds up. It's not worth it if you're just a backyard breeder. No one is going to pay hundreds of dollars for unpapered pups bred by 2 dogs with no traceable bloodline. Also wanted to mention, Rotweilers are known to be prone to heart problems so you might have some sick pups unless you decide to do some genetic testing before breeding, which I doubt.

  • I am sorry but you obviously knew that this post would receive responses opposed to you breeding your rotties or you would not have posted anonymously. I personally have no problem with someone breeding a dog. As long as they do so because for the right reasons. But personally I wouldn't care if your dogs were champions with the purest most sought after bloodlines after reading your response and the use of foul language just because you don't agree with someone would keep me from breeding/ or buying a dog from you.

  • This is not the way to find a stud. You need to go through actual breeders not just people who may have a unneutered male Rottie. That is the way you ruin a perfectly good breed by not insuring that one or both of the parents don't have good temperments or are quality bred themselves. Have your dogs had all of the genetic testing for the breed and been cleared? Are they AKC Registered? Have they have been shown in confirmation and earned a champion title? Dogs should not be breed just to have babies but to continue to better the breed.

  • If you've been breeding for 16 years, you would have contacts with other Rot breeders. You don't have contacts? I doubt you're a reputable breeder who does everything to ensure the quality of the puppies and improvement of the breed. Please, get your dogs fixed, you're not doing anything good by breeding.

  • i feel that every one has their opinion to breed or not. for example i have a standard poodle who is registered but has a limited registration which prohibits me from breeding her & her litter would not be able to get registered. she is of very well known stock & blood line. why they limited the registration i have no idea. also i got her cheap. does that mean if i breed her to an akc male that her puppies would be jacked up. no! in some cases i think that if you want a purebreed and if only registered breeders were the ones breeding then you'd never or anyone for that matter be able to own a purebreed. as breeders charge a lot. i mean how many genetic test do you need done. not for each litter. otherwise unless you happen to get lucky at the pound but let me tell you . i have never come accross a standard poodle, irish wolf hound, powder puff, havanese, american fox hound, bouso (sp) there. although i have seen many rotties.
