Puppy Mill? It sounded like he was a responsible breeder. Breeding to champions is costly and so is all of the hand rearing that bulldogs require. A puppy mill is pretty much impossible for this breed as the amount of time and devotion to the puppies is so great. Not to mention that the puppies are born via c-section. Also the amount of money invested for this breed means that extreme care must be taken for the well-being of the puppy to make sure that the breeder is not losing money. There's nothing wrong with a breeder making a profit off all of her labors. I'm sure you do not work for free, so why should a dog breeder?

I'm sure the argument is that there are millions of euthanized every day. This is true, but the fact is that the people buying purebred animals are not the ones contributing to this problem. The ass-hats who do not have their pets spayed and neutered when they are young are at fault. The person who spends $3,000 on a dog has more invested in keeping their dog healthy and loved than a person who picks up a dog for free out of the paper or a person who pays 50 at the humane society.

Also FYI Craigslist does not offer dog breeding advertising. You are right though, the person who started this thread is taking up valuable space on Topix that could be used for slandering someone.

Responsible breeder? puppy mill - same thing
There are plenty of unwanted dogs and cats killed everyday- they were not bred just for selling- they needed good homes -they cost nothing- I stand corrected-it is against craigslist policy to sell pets on there- they ask people to flag pet sales- why??

Actually the ASPCA states that: A puppy mill is a large-scale commercial dog breeding operation where profit is given priority over the well-being of the dogs. Unlike responsible breeders, who place the utmost importance on producing the healthiest puppies possible, breeding at puppy mills is performed without consideration of genetic quality. This results in generations of dogs with unchecked hereditary defects.

http://www.aspca.org/fight-animal-cruelty/pup...

Again, the people that are going to take a free dog are not the same people that are buying a purebred animal. The irresponsible owners are the people who do not spay or neuter their mutts. They get a free dog and do not consider all the costs involved in caring for this animal, including the few dollars it cost to spay or neuter. No microchipping. No vet visits. Then that bitch gets pregnant by another mutt. Then all of the animals end up being put down because the owner was a twit.

These kind of people produce puppies that go unwanted because there is not enough demand to meet the supply. If you want a dog that has a healthy, traceable lineage and that you know what to expect it to be like you buy a purebred.

It's unfair of you to demonize the dog breeders who are actually producing animals that people want to purchase. A bulldog breeder also must keep the dog indoors in air condition, so most of these breeders are people that love the breed and have them as their own pets. Not people that keep their dogs in terrible conditions and merely mate two dogs that look alike haphazardly. People want to buy these puppies because they are wonderful.

I sold all of my puppies. To clear the record, I did pay about $1,000 to get the best stud for the puppies. I took her to the vet to have my bitch inseminated. I then had to have the vet deliver the puppies via c section. I was also hand raising these puppies. Bulldogs cannot simply raise their own puppies because if they roll over while nursing the puppies they can crush them since they are so top heavy. I had to supervise all feedings. I supplemented any additional feedings to make sure the puppies were cared for and were growing equally. I also socialized the dogs daily to make sure that they will make excellent pets for their new homes. I also kept them in my own home and rarely left to make sure that they were all healthy. I took them to the vet to get their shots and microchipping done. I registered them with the AKC so that the owners would be able to look at the pedigree of all of these puppies.

I am not taking anything away from the dogs that come from an animal shelter, but I know that the ones I raised are loving and well nurtured. This means that they will not be prone to being shy or aggressive around humans. This limits the chance of fear biting and biting out of aggression. The buyers of my pups were also not deciding between a pound puppy and a bulldog. They were either going to buy their bulldog from me or another bulldog breeder. I cannot speak for all breeders, but I do know that most of us take great pride in producing healthy pups that will make loving and healthy dogs.

So please, do not speak ill of something that you know nothing about. I am definately not a puppy mill. I only have one brood bitch which means that I will only have one litter per year. This was a labor of love for me. Any profit that I see from this endeavor was paying me for my time and effort and will be put into showing in the future, which is a very expensive hobby.

If you have a thousand dollars to spend on mans best friend,howabout rescueing some from the shelter? And that does not make you a puppy mill??

yada yada yada -- yes i am going to get feedback like crazy- but tell it like it is -- Do not justify making money on your dogs? its like a purebred bull- you get good quality but you are going to pay for it- and you are going to breed more because it is an industry and you make money-- that is the long and short of it- call it what you will!!

How about going to the shelter and rescue a dog that has already been spayed or neutered. I would think just as much of you -...
in fact more ..
of a person that gives a dog who is going to be put down a home ...than one that would spend 1,000 on a pure bred dpg? how many animals could you have rescued for that amount.?? call it what it is... a way to make money -call it giving someone the dog they want- just like the bull -

puppy mill 5 or 50!!
You may not like it but..you may try to justify it- but it just like the bull... think deep- it is true!!

Breeding your female every year is not in her best interest and by breeding more pups you are taking away from a another pure bred English Bulldog at shelter or rescue. I hope you had them sign a contract and that you will take any of the dogs that you brought into this world back at any time during there lifes. Now that is being responsible...my mutt is spayed! She was free and is STILL well taken care of.

Yes, I will buy the puppy back. They also were only given limited registration, this means that even if they decide to breed their dog and not get the puppy spayed or neutered, the puppies cannot be AKC registered.

I talked to multiple vets and was told that my bitch could be bred once a year, but since dogs go into heat every 6 months, you do not breed her during the second heat of the year after her puppies are born. Most importantly though, with a maximum of 1 litter every year, I will be able to devote every ounce of attention to my puppies.

In my situation I bought my puppy instead of getting one for free because I love the bulldog breed, I want to eventually show them too. You simply cannot show a rescue dog. There are no show quality dogs in rescue. So yes, with my money I could have picked up 100 $50 dogs, but then I would be like so many people who think just because they can afford the cost of the dog that they can support keeping them. Dogs are a big responsibility that extends far beyond the purchase price of the puppy. You are advocating that because I have $5,000 to buy 1 dog I should use that to buy 100 dogs? How much would I spend a year on vet bills? How much would be spent on food? Medications? How much time would I spend walking them?

It is irresponsible people like you that cause the shelters to be overrun in the first place. They get themselves a free puppy, they take it home and do not realize that there are costs associated with the puppy. It also takes a huge amount of time to walk your dog, train your dog, and generally socialize your dog. Many owners are like you, they get the dog for free and then neglect them, cannot afford them, will not train them or socialize them. So then they finally get frustrated and take that free dog to the shelter where it is eventually put down.

As far as calling every dog breeder a puppy mill, you are just being willfully ignorant. Someone put the definition of a puppy mill up from the ASPCA website. It specifically indicated that the puppies were raised in poor conditions, it also said that time is not taken for accurate record keeping and no regard is given to the breeding partner or compatibility of the dogs. It would seem like the minute you pay a grand to have semen shipped from halfway across the country you obviously care about the future puppies. So you are obviously an unreasonable person as you will make definitions as you see fit.

I do not understand your bull analogy at all. Yes there are registered cattle too. These cattle cost more because of their genetics, which is the same as dogs. Millions of non-registered cattle are killed each year while the registered ones live a good life. I guess if that's what you are saying then life's not fair, but blaming the people that are treating their animals well for the negligence of the poor owners is just asinine.

So yes, any money that is made on this is making money doing something I love. It is not done because it's an easy way to make money. It's a labor of love and about raising a dog that you can be proud to have bred.

Okay so anyone who has a dog, who has puppies, and the owner tries to sell them, they are automatically a puppy mill? It's ignorant ppl like you all who like to point fingers and blame others for all of the world's problems. NO I do not support puppy mills, and would like to have them abolished, yes I adopt from the local shelter to save a dog's life, but I also do not support a group of people condemning this woman for selling puppies. I mean damn, quit worrying about other people and fix your own life.

First off, your words are hard to follow and incoherent. Since when did we start using hyphens, ellipses and explanation points to end every thought? Your rambling makes limited sense, although I gather that you are speaking in an inflammatory manner toward me.

About having multiple dogs, you were the one who stated "how many dogs could you get from the humane society for that?" I was just stating that the initial purchase price of a dog is irrelevant the cost to care for them in the future. I commend people for taking in a rescue dog if that is the dog that they want for their family. I did not go this route because I wanted a specific type of dog.

You say that you "show" your dog. I know there may be local dog shows and such that the owner just needs to bring any dog, but the showing that I was referring to requires that the animal conform to breed standards and a very stringent requirement process. You do not see pound puppies in Crufts, Westminster, or the AKC Championship. I am sure there are many loving dogs that come from shelters and I have been around some of these. I do not doubt this for a moment. I have also seen many extremely shy and aggressive dogs that need to be put down because these are the dogs that are fear-biters and bite out of aggression. Many times this is the fault of their previous owner not socializing them enough as a puppy, but either way, it is usually nearly impossible for a non-professional to rehabilitate them. When I was growing up we got multiple dogs for free, a couple of them were amazing. Fully trained and the owners just did not have the space. The majority of them had other issues that could never be remedied.

A true puppy mill owner would probably not have responded with so much information. A puppy mill owner would likely breed labs or other dogs that are more self-sufficient. Bulldogs are required to be housed in an air conditioned facility or they can overheat. Breeding one dog makes it nearly impossible to operate a puppy mill. Even if I owned 6 brood bitches, I would have to operate a kennel with air condition, care for my puppies greatly and put a lot of time into them. It would be a full-time job.

I also like that you ignored the true definition of a puppy mill in favor of your ignorance. Breeders of purebred puppies actually do a service to limit shelter overcrowding by providing dogs that people want. If you buy a Labrador or any other purebred you know what the dog looks like and how it will act now and as an adult. This can never be said of a mixed-breed shelter puppy. Although it may turn out gentle and exactly the size you want, it is likely to be different as an adult as what you expected. So then what? The owner sends the puppy back to the shelter to be readopted, which is a nice way of saying euthanized.

If there was not such a huge demand for these dogs breeders wouldn't exist. Almost every time that I take my bitch on a walk someone will ask me where I got her and if I will be having puppies. That's why they sell so quickly. People really love the way that my dog looks and acts. They do not mind paying a little extra upfront to end up with a dog that they will love. If these kind of dogs are not your cup of tea, that's fine, but for many people out there these dogs fit their family perfectly.

I'm not trying to justify, I'm just telling you why you are absolutely wrong. I've even backed up my assertions with facts, unlike your arguments that have no explanation.

Why take it so personal if you are not a puppy mill? All I was trying to say is that to breed them to sell . Why, because people want them, you say.You do not breed them to keep. You are a small scale..The fact that people buy them is that they want them you say. So you provide them with it..Just like buying the bull that is bred for better perforamnce. Your dogs are bred for that also- you seem to miss my point.Maybe I should not call you a puyppy mill-just a small scale factory. No matter how you sugar coat it it is breeding them to sell.You take care of them just like a farmer takes care of his bull- vet checks- shots- worming- because that is how he makes a living or part of it- So you are not a mill ,just a breeder.I think I get the picture now..thanks amen

Exactly. It's just like a farmer. I have animals that I love and I produce excellent progeny that will become pets for others to love. It's hard work, but it is very rewarding when you see the smiles on the face of the new families.

The reason I got so offended by the puppy mill title is because I have seen puppy mills and am against them. I have seen dogs that are malnourished and bred strictly for the purpose of making money, with no regard to the final product. This is like calling a home builder a scam artist because there are some builders who slap together some wood and call it a home without taking pride in their work. A legitimate worker would be very offended by this. Just like a legitimate breeder is offended when he is referred to as a puppy mill.

I take pride in myself. I put a lot of time, money and effort into producing the healthiest and gentlest puppies I can. I do not force anyone to purchase puppies from me, but I have no trouble selling them. I keep great records and will allow anyone to see my puppies. My goal is to be known for how great the puppies I sell are. I never want an unhappy customer.

Im sorry, any person who thinks that a responsible, reasonable adult will pay over a thousand dollars for an animals and not take care of it is ignorant. Also anyone who gives that much for a quality animals will have done some research on them. We do not own a bulldog, however we do own a purebreed animal with a beautiful bloodline. I am much in agreeance with the breeder. I have small children who wanted an animal. I did a LOT of research before we decided on a breed. Then I found a respectable breeder that had references and people who I could call to confirm that they raised good quality, temperment pets. I checked their animals papers with AKC and the bloodline. I then was given a 24 hour contract, I was allowed 24 hours to take the animal to my vet to make sure it was healthy and to have it checked before my final payment was made. Im sorry, I dont plan to co-habitate with just any animal. Getting a pet to keep it from being put to sleep is the wrong reason to do so. I have small children that I cant take the chance of having bitten or mauled by an animal that I know nothing of its background and/or blood line. I dont know if they have been cross breed, hot or cold breed, or what the father of it was. Buying a purebreed dog is a responsible decision. They are good quality animals that usually have good temperments and have been handles since birth frequently and socialized. The horror stories of shelter animals outweigh the success stories when it comes to long term commitment to the animal. Did you know that several years ago ALL dalmations in this general area where related and any breeding of them without papers was cross breeding them?

If you want someone to crusify, then stand outside the shelter and scream at all the people there that are dropping dogs off because they were irresponsible. Dogs are a lifetime commitment, not cute when they are little and take to the shelter when they get big. Your over running problem of shelters comes from ignorant, irresponsible breeders, not because he breed a dog and sold the pups. You are passing the blame on the wrong person. Him being a breeder isnt causing the over abundance of unwanted animals- those who arent ready for the responsibility of an animal are causing it.

Go bark up the tree of someone else and leave this person alone. He shouldnt be on here justifying what they are doing to you- go stand outside the shelter and let those people justify to you. Drive threw town and stop at every house that has a poor dog chained out back to a tree that has run the grass off the ground in the little area they can reach on the chain and talk to them. Go to every house and preach to those with mixed breed animals that havent had their animals fixed nor have they ever had their shots. Find the owner to EVERY animal that is lying dead on the road from beng hit by a car because their owner didnt care enough to properly secure them or keep them inside. I think there are bigger issues than a person who has breed their animal at the advice of a vet, and probally ONLY will sell them to qualified individuals who have proved they will provide good care.
