I wish dogs could talk I would love to hear their stories on how they ended up in the shelter.. I am sure they were all loved when they were 8, 9 10 weeks old.. but what happened after that?? I am sure a precentage of them came from someone with good intentions, I am sure some of them even came from reputable breeders.. after all even good breeders can't guarantee what will happen when the dog leaves them..
I, like others would urge you not to breed your dog, if you have a friend who wants one point them in the direction of petfinder or the local shelter.. save a life..
I have 3 females and 1 male dog.. they are all fixed.. when I had my male fixed I had someone waiting to see the vet ask me why I was fixing him.. I looked at the guy and said because I love him and I am a responsible pet owner..
Good luck with what ever you decide but before you do I would urge you to look on pet finder at all the pits, look at your local shelter and see the faces of the lost.. its heart breaking..
My pit bull is from a byb. Animal control came and took all the pups, as well as the parents, when neighbors complained about the living conditions. I then adopted her from a rescue.
Too many pit bulls are put down every day to justify adding more.
Not to mention pregnancy and labor carry quite a risk to your female. Are you willing to put her through that for your entertainment?
Are you willing to keep and spay/neuter, vaccinate, train, and house every single puppy that doesn't find a good home for its entire life?
