Default going crazy

First of all, the rude comments are not necessary, we are NOT back yard breeders, just like everyother breeder we are just beginning, we have had BOTH dogs completely tested by a vet, have complete family history on both dogs and more important have been cleared by our vet and our breeder who we got her from to breed, she has been to the vet for everything I mentioned i was basically looking for any GOOD advice as to what might be going on, like maybe people who have expirienced anything like this. We are not ignorant,trash or any other name you ignorant people can say. we are loving,caring and obviously dedicated to our dogs, she is prime age for breeding according to both our vet and our breeder, so please do not criticize us as we are new at this and are just looking from solid advice. Thank you

OK, so you got an echo, holter, thyroid panel, hips? And you definitely didn't get her from a good breeder.

FYI...

ig·no·rant/ˈignərənt/
Adjective:
Lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular: "ignorant of astronomy".

Perhaps the term you are looking for is arrogant?

I do not think that anyone here is "ignorant" re. subject of boxers. Actually, for the most part everyone is quite knowledgeable......Just sayin'

An answer from someone who had done a bunch of reading about breeding, not from experience. Isn't it true that a dog about the age of the dog in question (??) could also be experiencing signs and symptoms of an underlying cardiac defect? I understand that holter monitoring should also be done prior to breeding and every year and the results available to the people buying the animal.
I am new here so hope to learn alot.
Thanks
Oh, I see SaraNight already hit on all of the tests needed for ethical breeding.
Thanks

You asked; we are very pationate about our dogs and if you did not health test the dogs (both male and female) for the tests that SaharaNight had already mentioned then yes you ARE a backyard breeder.

Regardless of how much you love your dogs; they should not be bred. Do you show your dogs? Do you have any working titles for them? Are they even registered? Do you have the test results for any genetic diseases that they may be carrying? Can you go back 3-4 generations in each of their lines and see where the faults were; where the dormant genes are that could potentially pop back up? Any reputable breeder would tell you in a heartbeat that the dogs should not breed or be bred before the age of 2 years old. So either you are being ignorant or your so called 'breeder' is grossly mistaken. Are you dogs even up to standard? What is the purpose of the breeding? I'd be curious to know...

Just a side note as well... having the dogs completely tested by a vet doesnt mean squat. Unless you've had the genetic testing done; its like someone going in for a routine health check with their doctor telling them their an extremely healthy individual but they carry the gene for breast cancer or ovarian cancer and that they have an 80% chance on having cancer later on in life. For dogs, you can prevent this by not breeding certain individuals that have these traits/predispositions, etc.
