Default Odd?

Isn't odd that a breeder would breed a 6-year-old female dog and a 2-year-old male? When I get a German shepherd he's going to be a companion who I can do anything and go anywhere with him/her.

what is so odd about the age? If the breeding is a good pedigree match and the dogs have their health tests and hopefully titles, the difference in age doesn't matter. Not like she's a cougar, lol

What do you think is odd? It really is a human construct that the male should be same age or older.

Well they are dogs. I doubt they really think about such things and when they mate she is pretty much a single mom and dad is the sperm donor. Often the male does not live anywhere near the female and sometimes the sperm is inserted by a vet.

The sperm are always younger than the eggs. The female is born with all the eggs she will ever have. The male is constantly creating new sperm so if you look at it that way......

Dogs do not worry about age. That's a human obsession.

If you give a dog dog-cake and treats and toys on its birthday he will be happy. Of course if you do this on a day that is not his birthday, he will turn up his nose, say "Speak to the paw" and go and baptize your dress shoes.

They're dogs.
