People actually advertise to find a dog to breed their bitch with.<br><br>
I mean people with a purebred dog of untested, unproven background, advertise for just any old dog of the same breed to breed their in-heat dog with.<br><br>
I can't believe it.

Yup, happens on my local craigslist all the time. Sometimes blatant: "looking for a cute male maltipoo to breed to my shipoo. Must weigh less that 5 lbs. You can have pick of litter!"<br><br>
Other times they're more "discreet": "my female chiweenie is looking for a play date. Males only. Must weigh less than 5 lbs."<br><br>

Do people just not <i>think</i>? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I guess I just answered my own question. No.<br><br>
I got a call from someone who was a friend of the family several years ago. She wanted to know if my mom still had "that huge rottie" and if he was nuetered (my mom had a beloved rottweiller for many years, though the dog had been euthanized as the result of many health problems, but they didn't know that). She was calling for her daughter, who had bought "this really cute female rottie" and before they spayed her, they wanted "just one litter of puppies 'cause it would be so much fun!" I told her that the dog had had a lot of health problems, he was never a dog that would have been suitable for breeding. She said, "oh, that's fine!! We just know he's really big, we don't want show dogs or anything we just want huge, cute puppies!!"<br><br>
After I almost barfed, I told the woman that A) the dog was dead anyway, for reasons that very well proved my point that if the dog were alive he should never be allowed to procreate (and actually, that the breeding that resulted in the dog should never have taken place) and that B) she was an idiot (my acutal words? not so nice.)
