A person who breeds dogs in their own backyard and sells them for money. Its a huge problem becuase a lot of their dogs have bad nerves and health issues which end up at the shelter or euthenized due to agression.

For example if you had male and female GSD and they had a litter and you sold their puppies you would be considered "backyard breeder". Its not good for dogs or their owners.

A lot of them end up growing up in terrible conditions, no vet care and no appropriate space to live... and then when nobody buys them they end up at the shelter or they end up abused by their owners or people who got a "cheap" puppy ...

Backyard breeder puppies usually don't come with papers that guarantees their hips/elbows.. And they don't have info on parents either. Their cost is up to $300 a pup that I know. The pup that you would get would be a complete mystery. A good real breeder puppy will be $1000 and up.

The problem is say you do get a pup from backyard breeder... At two months they are cute and goofy and you won't know the difference but around 5 months you will see either health issues or temperament issues or worse... BOTH. backyard breeders have no interest or love for the animals. They are only doing this to make a quick buck while their male and female GSD suffers. For example say the mom is in labor is there are complications she will be left to die and so is her litter because backyard breeders cant afford The vet...You can research more details online about it but that pretty much sums it up.

Hence the reason we are seeing an increase in rescue dogs,over here in the UK,we are volunteers for a GSD rescue and its upsetting to see them unwanted

So Julie87, What about breeders who do care about there dogs? They provide them with care and love. They just don't know much about the breed and are breeding their pets or to a dog down the street because they are very pretty. Maybe they don't have the first clue how to read a pedigree or know anything about titles or conformation or genetic health issues. They are really nice people who take good care of their dogs but are not combining intelligently matched pairs. Are they not also back yard breeders? I would argue that most people who are back yard breeders fall into this category.

This is not a statement that is fact, it might be true in some cases, but not all. I'm not defending a back yard breeder, but I will defend the dog that comes from it, but that is just me. I don't have an issue with loving an animal that might not be perfect.

IMO a backyard breeder is someone who is ignorant to the knowledge they should have before breeding. Someone who has good looking dogs or wonderful pets but doesn't know the proper way to go about breeding. (Health checks, guarantees, matching two dogs to breed a good litter, titled etc.) Not all backyard breeders are bad people, just ignorant people.
