May I make a suggestion? Be happy with one pup. I like you got another pup for the sake of my other pup having a companion. But if you are a first time doggie owner the dynamics of a 'couple' can turn into a 'pack mentality' very quickly. I'm not an experienced doggie owner at all. I love my doggies a lot and handling 2 dogs may not seem like a lot of responsibility. But it's more than double the work...Because when one disobeys the other does as well. I can't train them together, I can't walk them together, let them out together and I have to worry about them resource guarding. Both my pups get along splendidly and I think would be devastated if the other 'left' but it's been hard on me.
That's my honest opinion. I hope you don't mind my two cents especially if you are an experienced doggie owner.
P.S. There are many doggies that live as a single pet and are very content. I hope there are others that agree. Dogs are OUR companions and don't necessarily need another doggie friend inside their home. Your pup can find plenty of doggie friends at parks or through family
For me this would totally depend on who the other dogs are in the equation. What is the pedigree of the puppy you could get now? What would be the pedigree of the breeding using your female? There is way more to this than just wanting another dog now or later. I'm not going to gang up on the OP for possibly breeding her dog in the future. Without details it's only fair for me to assume the *breeder* of the dog knows his/her lines and it sounds like the OP would have been doing the breeding with the guidance of the original breeder. Isn't that what this board normally suggests to those interested in getting into breeding? Anyway, I don't think it's wrong to want more than one dog I just think it's oversimplifying it to say it's between a female puppy now or a puppy from the litter later. Get whichever one is the best fit for you. We can't really tell you which one that is.
Well, it might be, if Jag knew more about this breeder, and this dog, and we were all in the US.
Too many assumptions here to even address, though.
There's no assumption that this dog has had no formal training, no evaluation at all for breed worthiness. No mention of the lines or pedigree. It sounds as though the OP doesn't know these, but that could be incorrect. What, exactly, would the breeder see in this pup that would make him think it's a good bitch to breed? Nothing has been done to evaluate any of that. IMO, a 'reputable breeder' would want hip prelims done and see some work out of the dog first. Before even bringing up breeding the dog. US, Europe, Spain, it really doesn't matter where. With the information given from the OP, this is the logical conclusion to make.
