Breeding Zeus is just and idea that I will more than likely never go through with. Also, I highly doubt that my dogs father was born in a puppy mill. Like I said, papers won't my dogs better pets and honestly I could care less if they have them. I believe my dog has excellent temperament as he behaves wonderfully around children/people/other animals and that's all that really matters to me. I just don't appreciate you being so blunt. I asked you for your opinion and I thank you for it.
I could get my Pomeranian registered with CKC and breed him.
He has an excellent temperament.
He has titles and is the fastest flyball Pom in Arizona, 2nd fastest in UFLI.
Great dog all-around.
But I will NEVER breed him for the following reasons:
1) His parents didn't have pedigrees.
2) He's WAY out of standard for a Pomeranian.
3) There's no need to flood the world with more unwanted puppies.
4) Even if he were to pass all health tests with flying colors, that doesn't mean that he can't pass on bad genes/health to future pups.
Everyone thinks their dog is breed worthy. Go to the shelter and see the repercussions of that for yourself.
I can show you.
These were all taken from the same shelter within a few weeks' span. ALL of these dogs were on the euthanasia list.
I haven't gotten any new ones because I haven't been down to the shelter in a while.
This girl didn't make it out of the shelter alive.
Dumped with her pups.
