  • I only feel its wrong if they are irresponsibly about it. LIke those people who will breed their dog back to back instead of every other heat.

  • I think its wrong for anyone other than a reputable breeder to breed dogs. A breeder has to have the best interest of the breed at heart and do it for the dog. I think its wrong for back yard breeders to breed dogs for money or to make a cute "peekapoo" its a mutt and its contributing to the over population and euthanization of millions of innocent dogs

  • Puppy mills, yes I believe that is wrong. Those who know and care about the breed, no.

  • Honestly, I believe there should be responsible breeders for every breed, to preserve those breeds. But I don't see any reason for "back yard breeders", or puppy mills. With all the millions of unwanted dogs being euthanized every year, there's just no reason to breed your own pet.... Save a deserving one stuck somewhere in a pound, instead.

  • hey Anon....if you're so proud why are you answering anonymously? I agree with onemellowmom...mixed breeds are mixed breeds. Why anyone pays the amounts they do for them is beyond me. breeders need to breed to protect the integrity of breeds..not because it's fun or to show their kids the "miracle of life." Be serious about it. It's gotten way outta hand.
