Are you considering breeding your pet?
Think about it long and hard before you make this very big decision. Breeding any animal can get very costly and it is a big responsibility. Do your research and be sure you have the time and ability to see it through, its not something to be taken lightly and it requires a lot of dedication on your part.
Breeding relies on the science of genetics, so the breeder with a knowledge of canine genetics, health, and the intended use for the dogs attempts to breed suitable dogs. If you dont have this knowledge you are of course taking a chance on the quality of the puppies you create.
Nowadays, many people can afford to buy a dog or cat. So some breeders chose to breed purebreds, while some prefer the birth of a litter of puppies or kittens that are not registered.
Three and a half million unwanted dogs are put to death in this country every year, with millions more dying through starvation, disease, accidents, and abuse. Nearly a quarter of these victims are purebred dogs. It is important to learn the facts and possible consequences if you are considering breeding your dog. In today's overcrowded world, we must make responsible decisions for our pets and for ourselves. Consider the following points carefully.
Cost - Breeding dogs is not a money-making proposition if done correctly.
Sales - Placing puppies is not easy
Education - Sex education for children is not a responsible reason for breeding your pet
Risks - In addition to the risks associated with delivery, motherhood puts considerable physical stress on the female
Time - Before breeding your dog, many hours will be spent working on pedigrees, locating a mate, doing paperwork, and interviewing potential buyers.

A Savannah cat is a cross between a domestic cat and the serval, a medium-sized, large-eared wild African cat. The unusual cross became popular among breeders at the end of the 1990s, and in 2001 the International Cat Association accepted it as a new registered breed. In May 2012, TICA accepted it as a championship breed.
A Bengal breeder, Judee Frank, crossbred a male serval, belonging to Suzi Woods, with a Siamese (domestic cat) to produce the first Savannah cat (named Savannah) on April 7, 1986. In 1996, Patrick Kelley and Joyce Sroufe wrote the original version of the Savannah breed standard and presented it to the board of The International Cat Association. In 2001, the board accepted the breed for registration.
The Soft-coated Wheaten Terrier is a pure bred dog originating from Ireland. The four coat varieties are: Traditional Irish, Heavy Irish, English, and American. These dogs have a single coat which sheds very little hair, so they can be more easily tolerated by people allergic to other breeds. They are Affectionate, Energetic, Faithful, Intelligent, Playful, and Spirited like most terriers.
In my house we are Scotties Terrier people:
The Scottish Terrier, popularly called the Scottie, is a breed of dog. Initially one of the highland breeds of terrier that were grouped under the name of Skye Terrier, it is one of five breeds of terrier that originated in Scotland, the other four being the modern Skye, Cairn, Dandie Dinmont, and West Highland White Terrier. They are an independent and rugged breed and I can testify to that! They can also be very stubborn and at times hard to train they are also quite sensitive to praise and blame. Independent, intelligent, and hilarious in his dignified seriousness, which makes him an excellent watchdog. They have short legs so not much for going jogging with you, but they love to walk and ours love to swim.
Do Scotties like to have fun? Of course they do they have very unique personalities and can be very playful, but on their own terms. They are high-spirited and independent. I guess feisty would be the correct term. They make their own fun, and I enjoy watching them do so. There is never a dull moment with a Scottie in the house!
The German Shepherd (German: Deutscher Schäferhund, German pronunciation: [ˈʃɛːfɐˌhʊnt]) is a breed of medium to large-sized working dog that originated in Germany. The breed's officially recognized name is German Shepherd Dog in the English language, sometimes abbreviated as GSD and was also formerly known as the Alsatian in Britain. The German Shepherd is a relatively new breed of dog, with their origin dating to 1899. As part of the Herding Group, German Shepherds are working dogs developed originally for herding sheep. Since that time, however, because of their strength, intelligence, trainability and obedience, German Shepherds around the world are often the preferred breed for many types of work, including disability assistance, search-and-rescue, police and military roles, and even acting. The German Shepherd is the second-most popular breed of dog in the United States and fourth-most popular in the United Kingdom.
