Its not about the ad, its about the HEATH TESTING AND AGE OF BREEDING.

You told me it is unethical to use these site, but it is OK for your people to use them....Thats the type of deception and dishonesty you have shown and displayed the entire 6 months I have been on this site.



HannaBanna you are unethical! Raise yor game if your gonna be a leader. No one can learn from someone they can't trust!

Greig is the most informed person on this site, and he doesn't treat people like they are under him. You should take a lesson from someone like him.

I said its unethical to breed your dogs under the age of two and that are not health tested. I have tons of respect for Greg, he is a wealth of information and an asset to this breed - need more people like him in it.

I just cannot stand when people say they want to help educate members here and yet they are doing everything the wrong way and are the poster child for everything that people should be avoiding in a breeder!

Oh, and my bad - you use the ebay online site - breeding in May - whelping in June - $900 bucks per puppy! That should line your pockets after this litter to maybe test your dogs and selects studs that are tested.

So with that, if you want to call me unethical then fine, Im not a breeder - you are!

They seem to tick a lot of boxes - i would keep looking if your not 100% satisfied. I have no problem with reputable breeders advertising on sites such as k9s and know some great breeders who are ethical, reputable and breed healthy, to standard, even tempered dogs - it is possible to do both.

Agreed and while i may have said in the past its a sign to run away - many of times it is, but if one does pop up - then it just require further investigation. I think there is a big difference from selling a puppy online than advertisting for stud.

The end of the day there are so many people who are learning and getting educated. However there are far fewer breeder taking the time to test their dogs and make sure they are breeding 100% health dogs to produce the best offspring. I can live with a somewhat not to standard dog that is fully health tested being bred than one that has great confirmation but no testing.

Do you want to buy a pup, welcome it and raise it into your family, interact with your little kids and not know if it could drop dead of a heart issue within a year? Or have such a bad nasty temperment to bite the face off your three year old?

Stuff like that is why we test and try to put the best representations of the breed out there. We want the dogs to reach the double digits and be long time family members, yet many time too often pups get the short end of the stick and have to battle thing that could have been prevented - is it far to them because we cut corners when breeding????

Very true, Boxers have enough problems as it is without bad breeding (such as heart problems and epilepsy). Health and temperament testing is crucial in all breeds - i think that is something everyone can agree with

Thank you for your comments. There is more to me, my website, what I do, MY breeding and my importing than what's been commented on.
I am off to Europe for a show, will get back here once I am back and over the jetlag.
