A pack of untrained farmdog littermates running wild on a ranch is just about the worst idea I can think of.
yeah, I've already refused and told him it goes against everything I believe in. Furthermore as much as I love my dog he has traits I would NOT want passed on (one testical dropped, he's a bully) he is very smart and effectionate. But we've never had his hips and elbows tested etc.
I brought up the spay/neuter thing and all he did was shrug his shoulders and say wild dogs have been breeding for way longer than humans have **rolled eyes**.
I asked him what if something happened to the farm where would the dogs go? would we be willing to take in a few so they don't get sent to random people. He then proceeded to tell me I was a random person that got a dog from a breeder.
NOTHING IS THOUGHT OUT.
It's driving me insane. I'd like to think he wouldn't go through with it if I was this upset.
Oh, as for the guy he's very sweet and would spend time with them and "train" them (i use that lightly). He already has 3 dogs at his house here in town; he takes very good care of them. He just has no idea what he's getting himself with this.
