He is 7 years old and in great shape!! He is such a great dog. Very loving and friendly!! Its hard to find a breeder for his mix. I want another dog with the same mix but a female. This is why I wanted to breed him. I need some helpful tips!
Please don't. Let him be your lovable, great, friendly boy. Breeding is such hard work for little, if any, remuneration, if you do things ethically and morally. Let the experts have at it and just enjoy your boy for as long as you have him.
Instead of breeding him, why not adopt one of the many chihuahua terrier mixes (you might even find the same mix again) you can find in an animal shelter? I see them ALL the time. Breeding him with what you think might be the same kind of mix might not necessarily result in the dog you think you want, and you'll either end up with extra dogs you might not want, and then add to the problem of overcrowded animal shelters. Besides, even though he's lived for 7 years so far, have you had him tested for any genetic diseases that could be passed down to his puppies. You'd also want the female's owner to do the same. No sense in breeding a bunch of puppies with a higher chance of genetic problems.
OH, I agree, Please don't!! there are to many mixed breeds in the shelters and rescues now if you are breeding just because you think he is the sweetest thing , please stop and think about it will you have homes for the pups or will the people with female yes still your responsiblity to your helping bring these pups in the world..Have you done any genetic testing, what will you be passing on to the pups.there are diseases males can get from the females such as herpes an other venerial(spelling ?) diseases ..Please think about it first, do your home work...
Always trust your dogs instinct about ppl it is always right..
Why breed and create more of a over population of dogs when you could just go to your local pet shelter and adopt a already pre spaded or neutered dog that is just as loyal and good as your dog. i see no reason to breed a dog when there are thousands of dogs being killed in shelters each and every year.
His puppies may be NOTHING like him. And the dam is likely to produce more than one. I want one of my dog's puppies is not an ethical reason to breed, and undermines those of us whom have worked very hard for years(even just STUDYING). Also, please look into the reasons for spaying and neutering. It may be a diservice to him to hold off neutering in the interest of breeding him to get one of his puppies, not to mention the puppies.
