And yes, I don't think any shelter will ever let you have adopt a dog without a neutering contract.
I've never known of a shelter that adopts a dog out without a spay/neuter contract. Colby's adoption papers clearly state that she must be spayed or they will take her back....we spayed her a few months after we adopted her from the shelter.

Ok, guys. It's understandable to be annoyed but lets not jump down the poor girl's throat ok? She's obviously very proud of her puppy and think he would make a good pappa. Instead of yelling at her we could try a little bit of niceness and persuading her nicely to rethink her decision. I mean we are scaring quite a few new members away by being TOO mean. Yes we can be adiment about something but lets try helping her and not getting on her TOO bad! I don't know who I think I am saying this to everyone but I am just trying to get people like her to stay on so they can get help with their animals and hopefully see that breeding mixed breeds purposely isn't the right way to go and to get people to adopt from shelters and rescues would be a better option (for the person looking for an animal and also for the shelters).

SPAY YOUR DOG! She'll stay healthy that way. Like the other said, enjoy your dog. You want to risk her life like that? She could die giving birth, and get ovarian cancer if not spayed.

Go to an animal shelter. Look at the dogs. Say bye, because some wont make it, and its all because of people breeding there dogs for the cute little pups. Think puppies are cute? What about dead puppies? Still cute?

showpug -

I really think it varies from shelter-to-shelter. I have known shelters that will not allow an unneutered or unspayed dog to go to a home before it is fixed.

Yup, the shelter where I volunteer is like that. You have to sign a contract that says you will get the dog spayed or neutered within a certain amount of times, and get its shots and everything. Its only cost $15 for an adult dog, and $3 for a puppy since thats all so expensive, but they also give you a coupon. If you dont do all that they can issue a citation. I think its a good method.

I think it's better to neuter the dogs before they leave the shelter.

ok here i go and be ready its going to be long!

First off you should not breed a mutt just because he is cute and people love him. You said yourself he is a hellion. Does he have traits you really want to pass on to other dogs other then looks? Are you going to have him and the ***** health tested before even considering breeding? You better or you will most likely end up with sickley or deformed pups.

This is NOT reponsible breeding and so I cannot give you advice on which dog to add to the overpopulation of mutts in shelters. I don't beleive you have valid reasons for breeding. Being a responsible breeder of Siberian Huskies and Chins i would know. Thousands of dollars going into breeding one pair of dogs! Im just at a loss for words.

This pup is 2 years away from even thinking of breeding , so let's let it be and all help out. BTW.. our Humane Soc and Rescue groups also spay or neuter before going into adoption.

Yeah it is Babyblue, but its expensive to do and my shelter just doesnt have enough money to do that, and continue treating and saving the sick dogs instead of putting them down.

The shelters here also have a spay and neuter contract. Some of the local vets do it for a reduced fee that is included in the adoption cost. It works out very well and leaves more funds available for caring for the animals while they are in the shelter.

Exactally. They give adopters 'Snip coupons,' which can reduce the free of neutering to only $35. Its a good method, because they need to money to cure animals when most shelter would put them down.
