does that make me a irresponsible dog owner cause all my dogs are desexed? I own 2 females and 2 males. I choose to desex cause I wasn't interested in breeding and cause I didn't want to risk problems

And how would you control the " we want a litter or two because our dog is so cute" ? offspring dumped at pounds later brigade.

Give the morons a lobotomy? And ban them from ever owning another dog?

I was really thinking of dogs, rather than bitches, when I wrote the above.

Just a 5 min talk with me would convince any animal control official that I definitely was not looking to breed any rescue, but I guess that people lie & others could change their minds.

Others irresponsible attitudes spoil it for the rest of us. Not that I regret my Rotti pup (who's a very cheeky mischievous boy) but that GSD was just beautiful. Hope he went to a good home.

yes. I have several friends who have done/do that :(

Would you believe that an acquaintance who belongs to the GSDRescue group, is actually intending to get her GS pregnant BEFORE she gets her spayed?

She's had dozens upon dozens of rescues go through her home & yet she still doesn't get it.

Stupid is what stupid does & until we can clean up the human gene pool ..........

I would think that your friend is within their rights to breed her dog if she wishes... doing so if the dog is not a registered pedigree, health tested, and is breeding a registered litter - is when you might be able to point the finger...

Agree, if she's breeding and placing her puppies responsibly and offering ongoing support then she's not contributing to the problem, and she obviously does her bit for rescue dogs.

What I'm saying is that she can't argue both sides of the coin. She lectures people all the time on the subject & even admits to being a hypocrite. The last 2 GS pups she emergency housed, lingered for over 3 months.

No, it's not registered. No, I definitely would not breed her on her temperament alone - friendly nature but will only listen to owner when it suits. Escapes at any given opportunity. Despite heaps of $$$ on training - has a terrible hip score & is not a good example of a GSB.

Despite all of this & the sheer hypocrisy, why not eh? Sheesh.

Jasper was a re-home and castrated when we got him, so we never had to bother about my darling Coco conceiving.

Similarly, after Coco passed it wasn't a consideration in getting a new dog, but as it turns out Chloe was also neutered.

But, hypothetically, what would we have done if the RSPCA had given us a choice?

I'll say this, knowing what I know now there is no way I would ever allow another dog to be castrated. Maybe I would not have made the same decision back then, but there's nothing wrong with LEARNING.

Short answer now, is that if I were certain he would never be wanted for breeding, I would get the dog a vasectomy.

Just out of curiosity and I could be remembering this wrong, but aren't all of your dogs from the same breeder? One who has a less than stellar reputation on the health testing front?

If that is the case, while I am sure they are wonderful dogs I would be very wary pinning any problems they had on the desexing alone. I have heard some awful stories come out of that kennel.

People are very good liars. Ask any one of the people here who work in rescue, I would say all have been burned or almost burned at least once.

Yes, exactly. Rules are rules and even if they wanted to they wouldnt allow you to have an entire rescue dog. Anyone can say that and sweet talk their way into getting a dog which they would then use to add to the too many dogs in pounds. I saw someone recently rehoming their entire poodle pup, advertising it as a Christmas gift ???? Already had one home, doesn't need to go to a possibly unstable home as a surprise Xmas gift, the recipient may not be responsible enough to monitor an entire bitch and might not be able to afford a spay (let alone food, meds etc...) Dogs aren't good surprise gifts for most people... End up with a litter + mum all dumped in a pound.

All dogs I own will be desexed. Females well just easier than having to manage them on heat etc and takes away one serious health issue that can happen. Males well the family male years ago ended up developing these huge benign tumors under his tail. I cant remember the name but the problem is they ulcerate and if not removed the infection will get into the bloodstream. It was horrific and in the end one was right through his tail that couldnt be treated along with a heap of other issues. He was treated for years by being given a female hormone (parents wouldnt have him desexed) - could have been stopped and even prevented by simply being desexed.
