Default Sigh. . .I need help convincing someone. . .

not to breed. I know I can't control what people do, but on another forum someone is wanting to breed her dog. They say they are going to do it because they want another dog but her mom is set that she is scared of ones she hasn't raised herself from day 1 I guess. . .
But people are telling her it's ok because the dog is purebred. . .I need some convincing material! All they said was that the dog had a known pedigree. Sigh. . .

Tell them all about the negative stuff that can happen, like momma dying from pregnancy and them having to raise the pups themselves, pups dying, complications, all the fun stuff! Maybe that will convince her?

If you tell them all the bad stuff they can "experience", maybe they won't want to "experience" it after all.

Would they care about dogs in shelters, or would that information go in one ear and out the other?

There's so many things to say....

http://www.dog-play.com/ethics.html is a good link to give them, if they'll actually read it.

Also, http://www.learntobreed.com

<~ Shaking my head.

It's sad that people just don't care.

It's different when the dogs are purebred, people want purebred dogs, and she should have no trouble what so ever finding good homes for them. It's the Heinz 57 back yard mutt who gets pregnant that is really causing the problem with over population. People want to know what they are getting, and that just doesn't happen with pound puppies.
This is a quote from another replyer. It seems to be the norm of agreement.

If purebreds never have trouble finding homes, why are there so many purebreds in shelters and rescues?

OMG!!! Here was another reply!

I would breed her if I were you, we recently bred my chocolate labrador because she is a purebred and she apparently has good bloodlines and stuff, yeah to some females it can be scary for the female, but the breeding process does NOT last very long and trust me it is well worth it, my dog got through it just fine, and she had 8 beautfiul, healthy puppies, unfortuntly we had to sell them all, but we did make some pretty big bucks, anyways since your dog sounds like a good one, I think it would be very worth it to breed her, and if you do decide to breed her then I can give you plenty of tips on what to do with your dog when she is pregnent and during birth! Good luck, and I hope you decide to breed her!

I was waiting for you to post the link. I'll go give it a read and see if I can make it through without gagging.
