Maybe it's a catch of tenses for me, the English language is fun.

I get stuck thinking yes, she bred a litter but she isn't a breeder with the way my mind works. It could be wrong though, I am okay with that.

I have bred gerbils, I don't even own any now and have no in tensions of owning them ever again so how can I be a gerbil breeder at present time?

Because they're idiots.

Share the site, maybe we can add a flood of comments about why it's wrong.

Well you're not. You were a gerbil breeder, and now you aren't. A person who breeds just one litter is still the breeder of that litter, but not an active breeder. "Breeder" is one of those things you can stop being.

I guess I could say she is not a breeder, currently, but was a breeder, once.

I still don't consider her an active breeder, especially when people ask in reference to actively seeking out a dog of similar traits.

Certainly if it was a one time thing, she isn't active now. Being a breeder doesn't mean you have to continually have pups available. If someone was looking for a dog similar to a one-off breeding, I'd say the breeder won't be breeding again, and maybe suggest some similar lines. If someone was looking for a dog like mine, I'd tell them that I'm not currently breeding, but again, suggest some lines they might like. And if they're willing to wait indefinitely, Pirate may get used someday, or eventually, I'll bring in a bitch to use him on.

If someone was looking for a pup from a breeder who had lots of litters, I'd suggest they look elsewhere. I will say that in Staffords, I don't know of anyone offhand that I consider a responsible breeder who breeds with any kind of regularity. Anyone I'd consider getting a dog from, breeds once in a while, when they want something.
