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

Your pup is very cute, but in my opinion you shouldn't breed mutts!!
If you want (or those people want) cute mixed puppies go to a shelter!

very true, and i am quite all for shelters, truth be told there are two types of dog buyers, ones who insist on having a puppy, and people who want an adult dog... u can not find puppies (small breeds) in the shelters, at least not in b.c... i've tried

... in any case if i breed our friend here with a pomeranian, his babies would hardly be "muts"

... now some advice please, i looked into a shih-tzu...but still undecided.

if u insist on breedin him, wait untill he grows up to check his looks then before you decide on another dog to get. And when/if you get another dog, get her from a shelter.

Dang, this makes me ill. Why can't you just enjoy your new puppy! Why do you have to think of breeding right away.


No way we can stop you but just wish you'd rethink it! And don't tell me its because everyone thinks he's cute because that's the MAIN reason NOT to breed.

And... "look sexy with??" geeesh I feel bad for your cute pup

arrrrgh

Sorry, but your not going to find out what do to breed your mutt to on here, because we don't agree with it. We don't want to help someone do the wrong thing. Sorry.
But, if you wanted to learn how to breed responsibly, we'll be more than happy to help.
BTW, you shouldn't breed a dog just because people want puppies from it, or because he is "sexy". How much do you want to bet that the people who want that "cute" puppy are going to dump it when it starts peeing and chewing on everything, or it gets old and doesn't look like a puppy anymore, or it develops serious health problems that endanger its life?
A puppy isn't a cute little puppy when it gets older, and they aren't a cute little puppy when they start acting like one, and they aren't a cute little puppy when they are extreamly ill having to be but through surgeries and expensive meds because of ill breeding. So people that want a dog just because it is "cute" shouldn't have a dog, IMO. (Not yelling at you, but I've heard a lot of people tell me over the days, "I want a so and so breed because it is sooooooo cute!" Not once do they consider the personality or breed traits. That just ticks me off. :mad: )

I'm going to have to agree here... Few reasons to not breed them :

- you're going to have to seperate them until they are at least 2 years old. If there is an accident meanwhile, and they mate, it could endanger the female to have a litter too young

- you didn't get a purebred dog, so chances are that they don't have the recognized traits of the breed, so you will get mutts

- depending on where you got the dogs (ie petshop), they might have health problems that will go to the puppies

- most responsible owners won't get a mutt from a backyard breeder, so your pups are likely to end up in the shelter

- there are way too many dogs in the shelter so they might end up getting killed

- not being neutered might cause cancer and other deadly diseases for your dogs

- dogs not neutered might get more agressive than if they were neutered


Finally, you can find LOTS of puppies in shelters or rescues... I just adopted one thanks to www.petfinder.com.

But anyway, if you really want to put the life of your dogs and the puppies are risk, I guess that whatever we say won't make you more reasonable.

I agree that you shouldn't breed a dog just because it's "cute". I, however, did get my mixed dog from a breeder though so I can't really bash anyone on wanting to purposely breed a mixed breed dog. Yes, the dog is cute, but when he grows older you may come to find he has a genetic disorder that shouldn't be passed on. If you breed him anyway that is not good for the puppies and chances are they will also carry the same disorder. Testing can be VERY expensive, not to mention to cost of raising a litter, and the time that you have to spend caring for the puppies (socializing). What if something should happen to the female will she delivering and she weren't around anymore? Would you be able to single handedly take care of the puppies yourself? Yeah it may be a long shot that something like that could happen but it does happen more than you would think. Also have you considered the price of a cesarian (lots of little dogs do get cesarians)? Do LOTS of research before you decide to breed, you have to weigh all your options and consider if it's worth breeding puppies.

that's what I am saying we PURPOSELY bought a mixed breed dog from a breeder. I wanted a pitbull but my husband didn't want to rescue one. So we had to go through a breeder and when we went to see the actually full pit puppies I fell in love with our Mack and they were purposely bred mixed.

Yes but the parents were purebred, not mutts. The difference is probably not big in the intent of the breeding, but it's there. Just curious, although I think you mentionned it somewhere, but did they breed them on purpose? Were the parents in good health and tested etc?

yeah they bred the two on purpose, supposedly they had all the puppies a home and then people backed out and didn't want them anymore. The parents were tested for everything.

Is this a joke? I can't believe you just recommended that they get the "mate" from a shelter. No good shelter would send a female out intact and for breeding purposes! How do you think she got there? From careless breeding and pet over-population...this concept makes me livid. :mad:

To the original poster: This makes me so sad that you are going to breed your puppy. Have you ever bred a litter? Do you have any idea what goes into breeding a litter? Are you willing to spend money on vet bills, c-section costs, and are you going to be home every 2 hours to bottle feed puppies if the mother can not, or if she dies during delivery? These are real possibilities! Are you willing to risk your new puppy urinating all over your house because he is not neutered...oh, and he has a great chance of getting testicular cancer. You mentioned breeding hime to a pug. Do you have any idea what can go wrong with pugs and delivery...do you realize about 1/2 of them always need a c-section to deliver. What if the female you choose does need a c-section? Are you willing to spend $1000 or more to deliver the pups...it could be 1 pup and it could die. Please think this over. Your dog is a mix and you want to purposeley want to breed mixes. This is so irresponsible on your behalf :mad: Do you realize that females should not ever be bred before 2 years of age??? Please, please make wise choices. Have you ever been to the shelters and seen all the dogs on death row. :confused:
