Default I think i may be changing someones mind on......

becoming a BYB

I have known this lady for almost 2 years to say hello to in passing.
But the past couple of days i have spent quite a bit of time over her place.

Well she has a Female German/Belgium Sheppard , at the moment the puppy is only just 8 months old.

Well she told me today when i asked if she had been spayed yet that she is allowing her have 1 litter 1st(when she is 2 years old).

So i sat there and explained all about BYB's and what makes a person one....why it is wrong to breed a Mutt or Untitled purebred.
I also then explained that if she decides not to breed, the complications the dog can have and possible illnesses if she isn't spayed.

She listened to everything i have to say and said that i had brought up some interesting points for her to consider.

So i am hoping that with a little more gentle persuasion (sp) she may think again before breeding her

Also a quick question here as i am a little naive to Breeds.........German and Belgium are 2 different breeds right?? Have to ask b/c i assumed that they are.
But she said that she was told the dog is Purebred Belgium, She saw both parents and one is Belgium, the other German, wouldn't that make the dog a Cross breed?
As i said i really am naive when it comes to dog breeds

Thanks

I just hope that when she sees Bailey knowing his age she doesn't ask why he is still intact
This isn't b/c i am going to use him for stud (I was until i came here and learnt all i know), it's just that after realising that i won't be using him...........I can't afford to have the little guys removed at the moment.

He doesn't go around any Females that are in heat though.........No way!!
So i know that he is ok until i can get the money together

Good for you ! As for the breed, she's got it all wrong, it could be the following:

Is she sure its' a German Shepherd Dog? In other words, there is also the
Belgian Sheepdog, which is all black, finer boned, usually longish fur,,the BSD
is a totally separate breed.

There really is no "belgium shepherd",, the dog is most likely a German Shepherd, maybe bred in Belgium? ancestors from Belgium? But there is no
"breed" called Belgium Shepherd,

What color is the dog? Hopefully she won't breed, cause it sounds like the "breeder" sold her a bunch of nonsense when telling her what it was.
