Frustrated? Yes, bullied no.
She received some good advice, sorry not all the responses met her expectations of warm and fuzzy.

Remember that not everyone who owns a pet is as into it as people here tend to be. Not everyone jumps through all the hoops, because they have never been exposed to the hoops. And pounding on them for not doing something that they have never even heard of is just bullying.
The woman realized she was over her head with the bitch and was asking for solutions. It doesn't help the dog to beat her up, because she happened to whelp a few litters of puppies. In fact, you should be heaving sighs of relief that she wants to give up the bitch. If she manages in getting it into a rescue, the dog will not make more puppies.
Consider advice, if it starts with "You should have done/taken/had" [whatever] than it is not advice, or helpful, it is bullying. If someone came on and said the dog was hacking last night, and this morning it was dead, would you say, "You should have taken it to the vet?" Of course not. It isn't helpful. It is bullying. It is kicking people when they are down.
Bullying never helps the dog.
Bullying the dog owner never helps the dog.
It may make you feel proud of yourself for a moment, but it never helps the dog.

|wolfy dog||The term"gotten rid of the pups" describes the entire situation. CL is full of them.|

I agree with Jean especially about finding a 'clinic' that does low cost to no cost spaying..You also might want to check with your local AC, they may have programs where you can get the price reduced/free.
Also check with your vet (and vets in the area), they sometimes know of clients looking to adopt a dog, ones who may have lost a dog, looking for another.

Please don't rehome her yourself, particularly not to strangers on a web board like this one. This dog needs a break, not to be shuffled around to more unknown situations.
Spay Wisconsin get her spayed. Clinic locator. wisconsin free spay neuter are the words I used in google if you need more.
Contact rescues, give them a link to this thread, offer to foster her yourself and participate in any training that they may have you do if she passes an evaluation.
This thread is all about your dog - keep with it for your dog's sake.
For everyone commenting further - focus on the dog and moving forward, for the sake of the dog. Thank you.

|llombardo||Have you tried rescues in Illinois? Your in Wisconsin, right? If so how far into Wisconsin are you? I remember the other post and I don't see any behavioral issues and when you are contacting rescues I wouldn't label the dog as such. Let them know what she does and they will make that determination. Do you have any pictures of her?|

If you feel like you are being judged it is because most of us know that chances are it is not going to end well for this dog nor for her pups.
Sorry but you don't "get rid" of animals that you are responsible for bringing into this world. And that has nothing to do with spaying. It is possible to have an intact female and no pups.
It gets frustrating and sometimes we just get tired of the dogs paying the price over and over again.

The big issue is you bred this dog. A dog with some serious behavioral issues and no pedigree. Then sold all the puppies and were unable to have her altered in the mean time.
I realize things happen out of our control (ie losing jobs, getting sick) but having a plan for your animals if something catastrophic were to occur is part of owning an animal.
I feel for you in your time of need. I do hope you find the right place for her but with her issues the perfect home/rescue may not be a reality.
