Re: [RC] [RC] Backyard breeders - Deanna German

Goes beyond horses,   My best dogs have been backyard mixes on purpose.
Joan  (who has some pretty outstanding BYBreed horses and more coming up!)

I don't think you can lump backyard breeding of dogs and horses into the
same category. The difference is that dogs are born in litters.

So while I don't have a problem in the world with someone breeding that
favorite mare for the foal that they intend to keep for the entirety of its
life, I do have a problem with someone breeding their bitch purely for
sentimental reasons unless they intend to keep all the pups (yeah, who does
that?) or spay/neuter the ones that are placed (yeah, right).

It's hard enough to find buyers for purebred pups who are willing to sign a
spay/neuter contract, I don't think that would work for mixed breeds.
