    Has your male been shown? Had his hips and elbows check? Had allt he relavent blood and other tests done? Has he been proven in any trial? If you say no to these questions then fix him and don't breed him. Breeding is not just something to be taken lightly.

    Nicole Im curious if you have a female that Bruce might be interested in?

    Because he didnt ask if he should breed, he simply mentioned that he was seeking a female.

    Your post kind of reads to me like unsolicited advice.

    I agree with goombaya. He didnot ask if he should breed him just if there were anyone who had a female. You shouldn't jump all over people's case like that. Just answer the question and dont give uneeded advice.

    I don't see it as unsolicted advice. If someone post something for everyone to see and answer to then they are also opening up the question to all sorts of advice. As soon as I read his intention to breed then I had to ask some questions that he has the right to answer or not. I have worked in the shelter and rescue system as a foster home and a volunteer for over 12 years. So I have seen the results of careless breeding so when I see an opportunity to help someone learn or give advice that might help decrease the amount of dogs and cats put down every year I will do it. If people don't like it too bad. I didn't insult anyone I am doing what I see needs to be done to save our four legged friends lives.

    The problem with it nicole is that you attempt to impose your standards to what a responsible breeding is. While i agree with you, Bruce has the right to hold himself to his own standard.

    If Bruce had asked "what constitues a good breeding" Or "what steps should I consider before breeding" than I'd be in line with you 100%

    Also, since youve opened the box. to what level should Bruce have shown his dog? Should he be a finsihed Champion? Through AKC? Should he have specialed him?

    Regarding his hip tests, should he have them ofa'd or use penn hip? Or will his local specialists opinion be enough?

    Along with your list of acceptable breeding tools you failed to mention pedigree research, or tempermant. Bruce's dog could have excellent hips, but all of his littermates be dysplastic..

    The point is that there isnt a finite answer to it, there isnt a pat formula to apply to what qualifies as a responsible breeding. Its the owners responsibilty to make informed decisions, and the buyer should hold him accountable by using their own standard. If you had a female that you were considering contacting Bruce about than id say you were within your rights to ask those questions.. aside from that it just kind of assumes that Bruce has no idea what he's doing.

    If I kept my mouth shut when people even mentioned breeding I wouldn't have been able to convince so many people over the years to not breed their animals and to fix them. Like I said before I am going to keep telling people my opinion because I work in the system and see the results of a lot of people who are ill informed making bad decisions. I am not forcing them to read my words or to hear them or do them. THey still make their own decision. I just give them an opinion and that is something I am going to keep on doing. I have help in a lot of ways by doing this and I find it sad that you seem to have the opinion that if not asked then don't tell. That won't chage the fact that thousands of dogs and cats are put down so often. At least I am trying to make a difference. But the same thing to you. You can either read this and learn or not. I am not responding to this anymore. I have stated my opinion which was my right and I have tried to help and I will continue to do so on any post I see like this.

    I agree with Nicole that her opinion is a good one about breeding and that anyone looking for a potential breeding partner should list fully what attributes their dogs possess which would make them a suitable genetic donar. ESPECIALLY a male whose contribution is minimal and whose takes no risk. Because let's face it there is a risk to the female that males simply don't have.

    I believe that the original poster should have elaborated more. Perhaps then we would be able to judge on whether the person knows what they're doing or if they're just along for the ride.
