HAVE A CHIHUAHUA MOM AND A CHIHUAHUA/POMERANIAN MIX MOM.. THE NEIGHBORS POODLE MIX (I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S MIXED WITH)CAME TO MY HOUSE AND GOT ONE OF MY FEMALES, FOR SURE, AND PROBABLY THE OTHER ONE.. I HAVE A CHI/POM MALE, ON SITE. I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE IS THE DAD OF EITHER LITER. I WANT TO SELL THE PUPPIES, BUT DON'T KNOW WHAT IS A FAIR PRICE TO ASK, AND WHAT DO I TELL ABOUT THEIR PARENTS, WITHOUT THE LONG STORY?
excuse me! i didn't know that caps were against the laws. i wont use them on this site then. is punctuation outlawed too? i only joined this site to ask one simple question, since it wasn't my fault that the dumb neighbor dog got my females pregnant. with someone like you on this site, i will be sure to ask on a friendlier site, that understands when nature runs it's course in this hectic world. i can't believe that you are allowed to be a member of this site. thanx for nothing ruffian!
Neither of YOUR dogs are fixed, you left them at some point unattended WHILE IN HEAT, that is your fault, if it wasnt your neighbors dog it could have been some other random dog, that is why you NEVER leave bitches in heat unattended. Besides that you have 2 unaltered females, one a mix, for what purpose? To make puppies, oh how cute, not.
nikki7... so $99.00 is a fair price? what do i tell them about the parents? i don't need to buy any more dogs. i like the chi/pom cross. i think they make a good dog.. friendliness of the pom smallness of the chihuahua and the price that hard working families with kids can afford. thanx for your help.
Well if you would have spayed your dogs in the first place this probably wouldn't have happened. I just feel all "mutts" should be fixed/spayed because if they have puppies, they are no use. People only want purebreds and the shelters/rescues are already over full with unwanted dogs.
Since they are "mutts", and you DONT know thier history (except on your side), I would sell them REALLY cheap, like under $25, or even free. Dont excpect to make much money off them though. You will spend more money in the first 8 or so weeks you have them then you will ever get back from selling the dog.
JSJJBETTS: You cant use caps in all your post but everynow and then words are okay, or a short, simple statement. She was not trying to be rude she was simply telling you the rules. If you would have read she would never of had to say it in the first place.
Wow I would never say that mutts have no use, that is not true, there is no need to breed them. It is not true that people only want mutts either, many people adopt mutts everyday. My first dog was a wonderful mutt whos mother was a stray that adopted me, he was the best dog a kid could ask for, and I can never hope to replace him.
No no no no no! I am sorry if it sounded like that! I have 2 mutts myself and I love them! I would never think of getting any other dogs! I just ment mutts for breding have no purposes and thats why people should fix them. Yes, people go out and buy mutts everyday and I have NOTHING wrong with that! But the shelters are so over filled with mutts because of breedings like this that it is a wise idea to fix/spay mutts.
I said adopt, I do have aproblem with people being stupid enough to go out and buy them, they are no better than the breeders IMO, if not for them the breeders would stop putting their dogs through hell to pump out puppies.
JSJJBETTS, when something like this happens, the best policy is always to be honest about the breeding.People looking for a mixed breed dog are not going to be fussy about the parentage. I would charge the costs of their shots and worming, plus a little extra,and I would also ask that the dogs be neutered and spayed. Good luck, and I hope they all find good homes. You can get your dogs spayed and neutered as soon as you are able to, in fact the male could be done right away.
yes the ones above are right,they do need to be fixed. i kinda went through the same problem. i have an male rottweiler mix and out of my stupidty didnt get him fixed right after i got him. anyways he got my neighbors dog pregnant (which is also a mixed breed) so i told her we could split the cost of shots,worming,etc. and i helped her find the puppies good homes. i got my dog fixed but i dont think she ever did because its just recently had another litter.
