    What does "everything" mean? What exactly has he been tested for? Has her other dog - the one in heat - also been tested and certified?

    I guess everything for breeding. She took him to the vet to see if it was safe for breeding him

    I suspect that the testing part is not true, sorry I just have a hard time believing that, if she was savvy enough to have the dog tested for everything she would know "how much they go for"

    I am going to zip it but I certainly hope she doesn't add to the pet over populations problem
    don't breed or buy while shelter dogs die....

    Does she even have good home picked out for the pups?? a good breeder has hmes all ready for the pups before they are even born! I am assuming if she is still trying to find out how much money she can get, she hasnt! Does she even realize how much money it costs to raise puppies?? True breeders dont make a profit on puppies, and they rarely even break even! Trying to produce puppies to make money, is a bad idea!! She will spend more than hse gets back!! Then what happens to the pups, if they dont sell?? where will they go?? does she have a plan for the birthing?? most small breeds have to have C-Sections, cause the pups rae usually too big to be born naturally! Does she have any idea how much this costs??

    She is much better off getting a second job!!

    there are Miniature Pinscher 1139 on petfinder for ADOPTION and that are homeless. see for yourself.

    http://www.petfinder.com/breeds/Dog

    it doesn't matter if he's purebred. there are SO many dogs out there needing homes that are pure bred already and she would just be adding to the problem.

    I volunteer for an animal shelter and I am not trying to be rude but I am saying how it is. no way in heck do I ever agree someone breeding their dog for money and nothing more. I bet you if she breeds her dogs, some of them will end up at the shelter..

    when they're not pups anymore. not everyone likes min pins and there's enough HOMELESS ones at it is that are pure bred.


    Never would I breed, ever and this is something I can say NEVER about and I would NEVER buy from a breeder no matter how responsible the breeder is. I know about the pet overpopulation problem and how many homeless animals are out there.

    do you even know about the pet overpopulation problem? you keep on saying he's purebred.. that doesn't make any difference. she may love him but she doesn't need to breed him for money.

    it's just so, so very wrong. she can get a second job rather than breeding him but I bet I am just wasting my time typing this.

    she is just going to make the people's job harder that work with shelters and rescues like me finding homes for pups that nobody wants in the future because they aren't pups anymore.

    Going to the vet for a "fit to breed" exam does not exist.

    We mean:

    Has her dog had its hips AND knees AND elbows x-rayed and sent to a board of specialists? I.E. Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and/or the University of Pennsylvania's Hip Improvement Program (PennHIP).

    Has her dog had its eyes tested and cleared? I.E. Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF) and/or Optigen?

    Has her dog had an EKG to see if he has heart problems?

    What about thyroid testing?

    Breeding is not easy. It is not profitable. Unless, of course, you breed like your cousin intends to. Then, it is profitable. But you're introducing a litter of new, unnecessary lives into a heavily overpopulated world.

    Please, for the good of dogs, ask your cousin to SPAY and NEUTER her dogs.

    I am sorry if you think we are coming off rude, but really I don't care if that is what I am for fighting for the rights of animals. I too volunteer at a shelter and it breaks my heart and all the unwanted animals are from folks like you so frankly in this battle you are the enemy, can't really sugar coat it.

    Okay, heres the thing I didn't say that it was called a fit to breed exam. She just wanted to make sure he didn't have diseases and stuff.

    ok. If her min pin is a purebred, then he has papers from the breeder, right? The breeder he came from would have an idea of what to charge - maybe look on the breeder's web site. Or any Min Pin breeder's site.

    If he doesn't have papers or any proof of where he was bred - unfortunately, people just aren't going to believe that he is purebred, unless he has the registration papers.

    And if your sister doesn't know what breeder he came from, and can't contact them...it's going to be difficult for her to prove also. It depends on how fussy the customers are, of course. But she won't be able to ask as high a price.

    And without papers, this type of breeding is called "backyard" - meaning nonprofessional, NOT unprofessional.

    Horselover...what people get upset about is the fact that we will never run out of cats and dogs in Canada or the USA. There are wonderful pets - including purebreds, I might add - that are in shelters and die by injection or gassing every day because there is just no home for them.

    Of course your sister needs money, I don't doubt that for a minute. But selling pups will give her just a chunk of money that won't last very long...she needs something more reliable and permanent for income. I mean - God forbid, but what if one or more of the pups is stillborn?

    It sounds like 'desperation' money and I understand...but even if that dog was bred today, she'd be without money for another four months, including pregnancy and how soon they can go to a new home. And they will have to have had at least one set of vaccinations. That can get expensive.

    I hope she can find a better money solution for herself.

    I know you are trying to help her...but think about how short-lived this income would be, and how long she would have to wait for it.

    Like others here, I am suggesting not adding to dog overpopulation. I hope she can find some work soon, or even a barter arrangement of some kind. When she has some money - get the dogs neutered/spayed.

    There are enough dogs...and she won't get rich from this.

    Take care.

    You wont know unless you do all the test stated above and those would cost hundreds of dollars to do and send in.A vet can not tell just be looking at a dog.

    Like I said, the diseases cannot be detected in one vet exam. The vet x-rays, sends data off, and the results are sent back to your cousin after they've been analyzed by specialists.

    ONE exam doesn't cut it. I'm sorry, but your cousin isn't breeding properly and the dogs need to be altered. If she needs to money, perhaps consider offering boarding? What about sponsorships? There are many many young riders who are seeking horses to sponsor.
