I really don't see a problem with mutts. Dogs are dogs. They all deserve love not matter what the breed is. You all are extremely judgemental.

As to your question of is there any harm to YOUR MALE being bred.
Honestly, I don't know.
But, I'd hope that you would be concerned about the health and well being of the puppies as well as the welfare of your male.

I'm just repeating what my vet told me. He said if I entire Gus early enough he will not mark his territory. & he humped when he was 2 months. I understand it is a behavior.

I love mutts, I have a mutt!
But, I'm not going to pay purebred prices for a mutt! I can adopt one from the shelter for about $30. You want to make money, you won't do it with mutts.

Perhaps you are asking your question in the wrong place. If you have spent any time at all on this forum (and I see you have 52 posts), then you realize that the two sentences below....

If you want different answers than you are getting here, then try asking a different group.

I am concerned about the puppies? As I said they will be in good hands. Of course I'm going to worry about Gus first..as the puppies aren't even created yet.

Why don't you call your vet & ask him.Folks on here feel stongly about breeding if you aren't qualified & sorry but your not that's obvious.I beleive you knew the answers you'd get on here before you even posted here.

Find a new vet pronto. My old vet told me my dog would stop humping and would never mark his territory if he was neutered before the marking started. He was way wrong. Even my female marks outside and she was fixed before she started. My female also humps her toys and my male will hump other dogs and even your leg if given the chance to.

Your question was "to breed or not to breed" you have received amazing advice! Unfortunately, the conclusion is "No breeding" and i don't think that is what you wanted to hear. Im sorry of you feel were jumping down your throat. We've lived through some heartbreaking stories, to sit idly by and watch more puppies suffer. It hurts my head to hear you being so caught up on "what will happen to Gus" with what feels like no concern to the possible puppies in this situation.

Honestly, this is totally ridiculous. Everyone knows how ridiculous it is.

To my fellow forum members: I love you all very dearly, you are all great wonderful people and friends. So please, lets just not do this. Lets just let this thread be and not rise to the bait, its just absolutely nuts.

Nothing is going to help. Instead, lets all just focus on all our friends here who really do want to share their lives and get advice. I am going to go read about Bentley and Ky's latest exploits, and go sniff around to see if there are any new pictures of Yogi around, and to ooh and ahhh over all the new rescues and puppies that have been recently beed added to our family here.
