    And they self trim, too, right? So, farriers aren't really necessary. ;)

    (My farrier has a BLM cadaver hoof...and the horse did NOT have good feet. :) This one foundered and the coffin bone...

    If you have to "rescue" this puppy, then it's a puppy mill. Big or small, or "BYB"...same thing. A breeder that breeds for money, without caring where the puppies end up, and typically will not...
  3. Just thinking about this again - it's not the...

    Just thinking about this again - it's not the breeder that is suggesting someone, it's a mutual friend of both of ours. I don't think the breeder would ever suggest something like this.

    Ask her whether she wants morning milking or evening. Then give her a list of other chores and tell her you can't wait for her to come because you really need the help. :)
  5. Oh, I definitely could, if I knew the right...

    Oh, I definitely could, if I knew the right person. I just don't. I have a bunch of friends that are *almost* ready for their next puppy, but not quite. If I knew someone - I would definitely be...
  6. Well, yes, people do intentionally cross-breed...

    Well, yes, people do intentionally cross-breed for a variety of reasons. I believe the cross-bred Border Jack types tend to be for dog sports like agility, among other things. I am not an expert...

    Do you live near the breeder? I think I would be much more comfortable with a co-ownership if we lived nearby. I like to show, but just can't own too many dogs...so I would happily handle a...
  8. That's the tricky part - I have 3 dogs now and am...

    That's the tricky part - I have 3 dogs now and am caring for a 4th, so I am definitely not ready for a puppy. So I was entirely comfortable with the idea of just taking the stud fee and being happy...

    Hope all your horses managed the night ok. My redneck neighbors put on quite a show, and luckily, I guess...they do it for most holidays, so my horses take it relatively in stride. But I do confine...

    Why don't you go ask on Off Course and see what people say?

    I'm not sure why you just want to argue with me and no one else; I'm not the only one with this opinion. Maybe because I respond, so I...

    Has the vet done any other investigations - bloodwork to rule anything else out?

    If nothing comes up in a vet workup, I'd start experimenting with foods. Just because a dog might have been able...

    Great question. Another good comparison - how many horses should you look at before complaining on COTH that you can't find anything suitable?
  13. Co-ownership of pick male puppy? Anyone done it?

    You guys have been great at answering some of my questions about breeding my stud dog, so here's one more.

    My boy was bred to a nice bitch and pups are due in 3 weeks. I can either choose the...
  14. Actually, that's a great question. How many days...

    Actually, that's a great question. How many days did the OP actually devote to her search before getting frustrated and rejected multiple times? I thought it sounded like less than 2 weeks, but...
  15. No, I was actually supportive of the OP until she...

    No, I was actually supportive of the OP until she supported a backyard breeder to get her quick puppy fix, and then congratulated herself for being a "one person rescue."

    It's not illegal to be a...

    Of course. Shelters are important and serve a real purpose.

    So do breeders - especially the ones that will take the dog back when the people no longer find it cute. Supporting a breeder that...

    I didn't suggest legislating or dictating anything.

    But I'm hardly moved because someone wants a certain type of puppy NOW because they have 10 days off work. That type of impatience makes me...
  18. Just because someone is turned down doesn't mean...

    Just because someone is turned down doesn't mean they are a bad owner - it might just mean that the rescue has better owners on their waiting list.



    I agree that there will always be BYBs and...
  19. You may keep a puppy forever, but many people...

    You may keep a puppy forever, but many people don't. And your "breeder" might not give a crap if you do or not. And many BYBs will not take a puppy back if you don't keep it forever.

    GOOD...
  20. Did I miss it - how long have they had the horse?...

    Did I miss it - how long have they had the horse?

    If it's been a while...a year or more...then you really have no chance of claiming "ownership". The fact that you have the papers really don't...

    I think euthanizing her is the best option. This is not a pet; it was bred to be food, and despite your best efforts, rehabbing her isn't likely. (I actually don't know that I would even call her...
  22. Not a lot of puppies in shelters, not young ones,...

    Not a lot of puppies in shelters, not young ones, anyway. That's the problem. People want puppies but they don't want to pay for a well-bred one, and they are annoyed when rescue groups turn them...

    It could be the builder just trying to cover his ass, but I think that a fully loaded dump truck would break my asphalt driveway. Maybe not down the middle, but along the edges; we already have a...
  24. I agree on both points here - if rabies is...

    I agree on both points here - if rabies is mandated by law to be administered by a vet, and you don't get it...that's a tough thing for a rescue to overlook. If you can't give it for some reason,...

    So, someone has actual experience where "working outside the home" disqualified them? I find that hard to believe - but as was said before - if you have a plan for mid-day walks/dog day care/dog...
