Wiley, it's sad either way. To the sadly misinformed Op.. whatever gave you the idea that the intentional breeding of a 3 way mix of different dog breeds is condoned on this forum? Do you not know about the millions of dogs in shelters, put to death each year? Just because you dogs are healthy, does'nt make them breeding stock. How old are they? Have they had any health testing at all? I hope you have a good vet, because you're very likely to encounter a c-section with your toy poodle. If this is just a way to pull all of our chains, it's not funny, and it's getting really old.
first off, im not a dumb ***...i am an rn going even further with my degree and am only 21. i have never owned a dog in my life until now and my neighbor wanted to breed with my dog...she is handling everything....but, i was just asking questions to educate myself and get educated answers...apparently you arent able to grasp the concept "the most educated person is the one who asks the questions"

why is this irrespsonible.? the owner of the female has breeeded before and will handle all...i just wanted to know what happens to satisfy my curiousity...i LOVE the hybrid dogs...cockapoos, etc... and if i won the lottery? whats that supposed to mean? im 21, own my home, have a new truck and a brand new car....im not a *******....and the breeding wasnt intentional on my part...the other party allowed their dog to go into my yard with mine...but, i am looking forward to the puppies

jcolb, the basic principles of breeding are to improve your breed. Why in God's name would you want to produce these puppies? If you are an educated person, you surely can understand the irresponsibility of your actions. Do you know all the genetic abnormalities that run in these 3 breeds? What type of health testing has been done on the dogs? I am most certainly not trying to be mean here,I am a dog breeder myself, and I know that with everything being perfect, the worst disasters can and do occur. Have you seen the 100's of dogs in the shelters? I would honestly take the female and give her the shot to abort. I really would, and I know that is a very hard medication for the dog to handle, and not to be taken lightly. Please give it some consideration.
Posted: 7:42:30 PM 9/11/2007 i would buy a house so i dont have to struggle to pay rent...pay off my car, finish my education and pay off loans that i have already acquired.. find a doctor who can actually keep cervical cancer controlled...donate to charities and buy a female cocker spaniel puppy to breed with my dog
While some of that is noble.. Most people aren't thinking about acquiring dogs to breed. Doesn't seem so accidental.
Even some of the nicer cocker lines carry nasty things. Endless eye issues, and nasty knees top the list. Cockers are breed 3 for knee issues. Hope your dog is healthy. The list of other cocker issues is endless. Not all are testable though.

i didnt want this to happen...but, the owner of her did and she def. wants the puppies...so im stuck...i have a big yard and i always thought that when the female is in heat it is the owners responsibilty to keep her away from dogs... how was i to even know she was in heat or would run into my yard???? my dog and her have never gotten along...if she wants the pups, i cannot force her to get an abortion...can i?
By the sounds of this last post, you are breeding your dog purely for money, with absolutely no thought to the future health of the puppies. That's not only sad, it's disgusting.You said in your first post that you discussed breeding. This was'nt an accident.
i am NOT breeding my dog for money....if i was to breed him i wanted a full blooded cocker spaniel and i wanted to keep them in the home with me. i am single and going through chemotherapy and wanted no more than the company of another dog.....i wanted to take the puppies and give them to families....i have a friend who breed yorkies for the soul purpose of charity for children....
ok to claify i discussed that i had the intent to breed my dog....i wanted full blooded cockers....the neighbor wanted me to breed with hers, but i said no.....she got my dog while he was outside in my yard.....so there nothing i can do now....
Pugglebaby...why are you giving her another chance to start the lies all over again? LOL!!
jcolb1d: you've clearly been caught in a pack of lies. My suggestion to you: either come clean, so that when you have a serious question, the members of this forum will help you OR continue your lying and never gain any respect as a member of this forum. Your choice
You have to see where your posts ae confusing. First it was intended, then it wasnt. You say you are an rn and own your own home, car, truck, etc...in another thread you say you struggle to pay rent and would buy a home if you won the lottery. Now you are going through chemo. I think everyone is scratching their heads here with good reason.
