Hey , if it ain't broke , why fix it !? I would personally check your present dog's hips at a yr.old . If all's well ....then go back !

I think if you've found a great breeder and you are happy with them why not go back? It's a challenge to find a reputable breeder, particularly for some breeds, so I say if you want to stick with it.

I didn't see anything about health screenings on the site...

with Saints, that makes me nervous.

yeah neither did I. I could have just missed it, but if they do not screen I would not go back. You'll need to fix one of them or have them separated all the time. I have nothing against not fixing until a dog is mature but once you have two I'd fix one of them at least. Your dog is adorable I love saints!

Thanks everyone. I am giong to email her and ask her about health screenings. Mack is also going to go to the vet in the next few days just to get a good once over(including his hips)

I am going to fix the puppy right away, but I am not sure about fixing Mack....the vet here is expensive...and I dont mean just a little, because I wouldn't care if it was only a little expensive...but its 400 bucks, for just the neuter, and then they want blood work, fluids, xrays...and that all costs big big money..they wont do the neuter unless i get all the other stuff as well...so it could very well end up being upwards of 6-700 bucks. When we move the cost goes down to 125..but I dont know if I would want to neuter him when he is older...Hes a very good boy...shows no typical behaviour that would want to make me neuter him (like peeing on things...he hasnt mastered the 3 leg pee yet...hes not aggressive towards anything, including dogs of both sexes and cats...and he is most certainly not hyper) I dont know...I will see how it goes I guess

oh and I should add....

Mack is an inside dog 100%..he only goes out to do his business and for walks/play but he is never ever outside without a leash on...ever! So the chances of him running off and making little Macks are slim to none...

well I did some hunting around and no breeder that's anywhere near us has impressed me even half as much as mountains country did. They are awesome people...and whenever I have a question about my dog..its always answered right away and I just feel like they are there for me if i need help....so anyone looking for a Saint in this area, I recommend them!


Now I just have to wait till this house sells and we move back to the country *keeps fingers crossed* hope it happens soon...then its time to look for a puppy!

x-rays and fluids and over $400 for a neuter??

Where the HECK do you live? That is ridiculous! Have you looked for another vet or a low cost clinic?
