Question Your Definition of Ethics

At the request of many, we'll bring the ethics debate to its own thread.

To all of you:

What is your full definition of an "ethical breeder?"

A Few things stick out to me:

1. Pups should be first concern NOT money. If you do not have the money to treat them right, DONT do it.

2. Ask yourself, "Am I bettering _____ Breed?" If No, DONT do it.

3. Are Sire and Dam health checked? Champions? Breeding Material? The Answer should be Yes to all.

4. If you have a "cute" puppy that you want another of and your idea of Health checks is a quick vets visit and yearly shots... spay or neuter your dog.

To better the breed. I would not be interested in buying a pup from a breeder that does not do something with their dogs, working, showing, someone thats not involved in anything with the breed I dont think should be breeding. and ofcourse heath checks.Do I think someone should be breeding their pets-No! And spay and neuter contracts for pet pups.

There is nothing wrong with her asking this question. It comes up again and again and I'd much prefer it here than directed at one individual.

I agree, it's much better here than hijacking another thread and going off. But, and I hate this saying but I'm gonna say it anyway, mark my words..

The thread was already hijacked and closed so summit got what she wanted...another person run off that doesn't answer her questions the way she (summit) likes and an OP that needed help and was pushed off to the side by questions not needed at the moment.

Hey guys. Im sorry for arguing with summit in the other thread, but I really hate it when people that think they know it all bash other people that just asked a question. Summit you know my views. Enough said.
