aren't most toys out at 6 mos? You might not have the time you think you have LOL. I can't say I'd be up to it in your situation.

You should at least find a conformation class in your area and get that puppy OUT...your home is not enough socialization for a dog that will be shown.

Thats fine and dandy. I'm happy he's such a great pup. You getting him has absolutely ZERO to do with his temperment.

It has everything to do with the fact that you keep posting that everything is going down hill for you and your boyfriend, housing, and money wise.

Why did you not think of the puppy and let him have a stable life with his breeder? Deposit gotten back or not.

I just feel bad for the pup, thats all. And, I'm fed up with how you keep posting that everything is going down hill for you, then you still get a new puppy.

What I was thinking, but couldn't put into words. On the other thread, you also said you might have to get rid of your dogs, and Pebbles is with your mom, so why not just keep him at the breeders (I think she payed in full though Lizmo, not just the deposit?)? I don't know, I can't see a good breeder not attempting to work something else out if they knew about such financial problems were happening in the home, and there was a chance she might get the puppy back anyways later down the road. But....

alas, I don't know anything except what's written on the internet so I wish you well, he is very cute and Reggin is as handsome as always.

I didn't knows she payed in full. Either way, if the breeder is as great as you've made her out to be, she should not have placed the puppy with you knowing your situation and given your money back.

Let's not turn this thread into an ugly bash fest ladies.

She paid for that pup before things started going bad, she's waited for the pup for quite some time. While the pup may have been better off staying with the breeder for now, I am sure the pup can still return to the breeder if things don't improve for Reggin. And we all know that things can fall apart or improve in a moments notice.

This is one bright spot in her life at the moment, don't ruin it by making a simple picture thread into something it isn't.

Reggin, he is a doll! I am glad he and Reggin seem to have hit it off so easily

I'm not. Trust me, I know how much fun it is to have a pup. But why keep saying "oh such a cute pup" when she may not be able to afford to keep her? Just because she paid for the pup AND has planned, doesn't mean that some situations change and a pup isn't possible. And from what she keeps posting it obviously isn't the best option.

I guess I don't understand.

i will say im a little concerend with taking him on while having such issues...
i certainly dont think showing is a good financial option.

BUT...
i cant say much as i will be adding another crested soon...
as long as you can aford the expenses, jus tbe very aware, chis bond hard and quick he wont do well with a family change should the need arise.

i will say though hes a realy cutiepie, very nice ears and a great head and im glad reggin is getting along with him, the pictures are great.
LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of socialization outside of the home with him, take him anywhere you can to keep him that happy crazy fun people loving bundle.

You do know that that very thing could happen to ANY of us at any given time. You can shake your head and say "not to me" but YES IT COULD. Your parents could lose their jobs, be injured, any number of things could go wrong.........it's just how it is.

So should we just not say "cute pup" to anyone anymore because their situation could change tomorrow?

Yes, she is in a tight spot right now and things don't look so good. But that could literally change tomorrow. Her boyfriend's company could pick back up and he could be working 40 hours a week, she could get the job at Sears and have enough to make ends meet. Sh!t, she could hit the lotto and never have to worry again..........life is full of variables.

She doesn't have to have enough money to show the puppy, just enough to provide a roof, food, and vet care.

The pup was already paid for, isn't suffering, going hungry or without vet care, and it can go back to the breeder anytime.

I'm going to piggyback off of Coop here. We all make decisions in our lives and we never know what the future has in store for us. Never. The pup was paid for before times got tough and as long as she can care for him, I don't see the problem. If for whatever reason, she can't, I'm sure the breeder -like any decent breeder- has requested that the pup come back to him/her. The deed is done, there isn't any going back. Of course the pup is cute and people can comment on that if they want to, the pup being cute is not a factor of Reggin's money issues! It's just the way it is.
