I hope this owner does reconsider...I guess I have become sour from my years in the vet clinic. I had to stand by and watch countless dogs and cats suffer because of their owners neglagence and/or ignorance. It was very hard then to keep my mouth shut then and I guess I am just ready to voice my opinion now. So many people with pets find "cuteness" as an excuse to do whatever they please. When I worked at the clinic I had to see a chi come in for a c-section and loose her puppies and then the owner handed her to me in a box the next day dead :( He was not a breeder and he just wanted money. He went on to buy more chis to breed because he was determined. Or how about the 9 year old lab that the owner decided to breed for money as well. She was brought into us early one morning with a dead puppy stuck and hanging out of her. It was rotten and the owner had just waited until he could get "around" to bringing her in for help. She still as most labs do looked at us adoringly and licked us as we tried to help her. How about the pregnant dog that was brought in 2 weeks overdue and so badly burned that we could not see her eyes etc. She was so badly burnt that her skin was flaking off in charred strips as we carried her to gas her down so we could at least try to save her puppies before she was euthanized. When we called the owner who was in the drive through ordering food to tell him her fate he told us that he did not want the puppies because he was not willing to bottle feed them. She delivered 14 healthy puppies via c-section...needless to say, the staff took as many as they could and the owner took the rest and put them on another female he had who had puppies to nurse. We never knew if they made it or not. He did not care, he just liked to breed, but if anything went wrong, he would just euthanise.

This is just a small sample of what I witnessed for 5 years of my life, so yes, it has hardened me and has made me sour. I am sick of seeing dogs suffer and owners that don't care. In fact, this is part of the reason I left the clinic, I could not take it anymore:mad:

hey there, i first had posted because i was wondering what small breed was best to get, since then (my boyfriend said the only small breed hed own up to without being ashamed, was a pomeranian)

in any case my boyfriend picked out he most hellian male pom ever.

his name is Kiko Mcpupples, and he is quite the charector... he is 7/8 pomeranian and 1/8 australian shepard.

everywhere we go people fall in love with him, say hes the most beautifull dog they've ever seen, we've decided to breed him... so everyone grabs our number and makes us tell them when there on there way ( a year down the road)

Kiko is now 13 weeks old

my question is... i am uncertain what breed og girlfriend to buy him (yes were buying the girly)
im thinking another pom... which hopefully will still allow him to keep his beautiful shepard tri-colorings. But from what i have read (please correct me if im wrong, Poms have amazingly small litters)

- has anyone ever breeded pomeranian, how big was the litter?

i want to breed him with a pug perhaps, but they have major conjenital issues...

anyone have any sudgestions or links on pomeranian litter qauntity sites n links?

ill post his picture so u can get a better understanding of his looks


Sorry to bust your bubble but that dog is not very cute maybe to you he is but to me nope.I'm not fond of cross breed dogs never have been never will be.You do know you won't be making any money breeding dogs matter of fact most breeders are luckly to cut even.Most of them even spend more you know how much it costs to successfully produce a healthy litter of puppies?.Are you prepared to spend $200 or more on a c section for the female if needed?.Then you have the feeding bill for dog,female,and puppies.Then at 6 weeks you have vaccations which won't be cheap.Then you have the problem of finding them homes.Most people once the puppy is out of its puppy stage they dumped it at the shelter or pound.Do you really want all this to happen?.You could also loss the mother and pups during birth and pomeranians are known to have alot of birthing problems.Are you prepared to hand feed the pups if the mother can't produce milk or its dryed up?.Then you have temperment issues if the dog has bad temperment its more then likely passed on to the pups same if the female has a temperment problem.You do know reputable breeders will not sell you a female to be used for breeding mutts.Matter of fact most breeders sell on a limited registration on a desexed contract.You ask for the dog to be on a main register they will be asking you alot of questions.Everyone on here is right you should first think of all this.If you really want to breed dogs why not breed purebreds instand of mutts.Most breeders are breeding to impove the breed where some are breeding for money.Seems like you have made a decision which i do not like but i hope you will think about it and not breed your mutt.

A person who dislikes mix breeds in my opinion is a person who doesn't understand dogs. Parentage is not something you consider when you take something into your heart.

I think if you want to bred your dog, you should wait awhile, enjoy him and let him become an "adult" first. My opinion though, I think a pom would be the best match. Good luck.

I have nothing against mixed breeds except for those who breed them. If those want puppies, there are more than enough mixed breeds to go around at the HS. Every dog that isn't being bred for show quality or the betterment of the breed should be spayed or neutered. I painfully had to have my female goldens beautiful pups (8) removed and PD because of a stupid dogs sitter's mistake in letting my female in heat out. It wasn't her time to breed and it had to be either with her son or her father. I couldn't take the chance of bad genetics. Yes, it was expensive and hard to do. But as a responsible breeder, I had no choice.

Yeah that is a tough decision Bubbatd, but it was right. When I first got Hannah me and my husband went back and forth about breeding her and finally came to the right decision. We decided not to breed because she's a cute puppy but she's not a SHOW STOPPING lab. I mean she's just a normal lab and we wouldn't be helping the breed any by letting her breed. Plus not to mention the over abundance of lab and lab mixes in the surrounding shelters it just seemed unfair to those dogs that are stuck in shelters waiting for a family. Also there is the time and money issues, as well. I don't have the right amount of time to spend with newborn and very young puppies, and don't have the money to spend on shots and emergencies. Plus I don't want to risk something happening to my Hannah either.

I have nothing against breeding either, my dream has always been to be a dog or cat breeder. But if I ever get to do it, I will get the best dogs I can. It's probably years and years away though...

Unless another dog came into the yard, it had to be one of my 2 males....the sitter never fessed up. The female was in a large kennel and no way in or out unless gate openned . The vet said they were goldens. So it would have been in breeding.

yea she doesnt deserve our advice, but i understand her she probably doesnt know better, she was probably expecting help, and had no idea this breeding is bad, thought it would be ok, by us being mean it just made her defensive, and maybe even more determined in her way.
she is not coming back and this topic in my opinion does not deserve your guys clever, informative responses on someone whos not coming back

Geez no !!!!!!!! There's line breeding, but it has to back several pedigrees . I only let my females have 2 litters...2 or 3 years apart. I never could even line breed with any of my dogs.
