    How do you all feel about breeding pets for money?

    I think it's a good way to make money and a good business if you're breeding the proper breed. I also feel that it's a good idea for people to look into animal shelters to get a pet from there. Animals in animal shelters are less expensive and need a good home.

    I don't agree with it- because a lot of people are in it only for the money and do not care about the animals well being. Puppy mills prove this, plus a lot of pet store animals that come from these mills are not healthy and have defects- because of over-breeding.How would you feel if you had to keep having babies and have your health go downhill because of it?

    Anyways their are so many homeless, abused, neglected animals already and we should focus on taking care of them, instead of using them to make money. It should be about love, and to stop them from suffering. If we do not care for the animals, than it also reveals we do not care about people. It is no better than using children and woman to make money- they too are suffering because someone with evil intentions are willing to throw there life away over a buck! How evil!!

    I love animals and wish I could save them all-just like people!
    It breaks my heart to see these cold hearted people over-look even the animals in there own neighborhood- if we would all help a couple of these animals- it would make a difference.
    This is why we have many, many people- overloaded with animals. We wouldn't have all these said stories of animal hoarding from those that have good intentions and really care, but the problem is overwhelming because the majority of people have grown cold.My animals are like my kids, if they hurt I Hurt!

    I think it all depends on the breeder.  Of course, I am not for the puppy mills.  I agree that there are many pets who need families, but this doesn't always work out.  For example, we took in a rescue dog, because we thought that would be the best way to find a dog for our family and save an animal.  He seemed like a great fit.  Well, we always have a lot of neighbor kids at our home.  The poor dog, although he reportedly did well around children, bit the neighbor girl in the face.  I tried to brush it off as he was just overwhelmed by all of the kids, but then he bit my daughter in the face as well.  We had to take him back.  After that, we decided that because we didn't know about the dog's complete past, it was hard to know how they would really act in our home once they were around all of the kids. 

    I know that puppies are always available at the shelters too, but we decided to get our labradoodle from a good friend of mine.  She breeds these dogs, and really gave me a lot of assurance as to how their personalities tend to be.  I am so glad we went this route, as we love our 94-pound "Bear."  He is the best thing that has happened to our family in a long time.  So, in a nutshell, I guess I am for breeding, as long as it is a controlled, safe environment for the animals.

    If you go into business just for money, and only for money, then it's never a good idea. Especially when breeding animals you have to care about the animals more than the money, if you don't then that's how puppy farms happen. Also, leave breeding up to the experts. If you do want to buy a pet then check out the credentials of the breeder and then decide whether you want to give them your hard earned cash.

    Not good at all as the animals them selves won't get the Necessary vaccinations (as this is included in the pedigree breeds price these animals are not bread for profit) also the tests that need to be done specific to each pedigree to see if the anomaly within that breed have been passed on if so the tests help people decide not to breed from that specific animal due to the inherited affliction e.g a badly bread German Shepard will have a round back and the back hips will eventually collaps rendering the dog helpless .  This means that if the dog was bought on the cheep side the owners aren't going to be able to afford the opperation to stabilise the hind legs and alow the dog to have a pain fee existence (something that all species are untitled to) so no I would advise against it there are plenty of other things to do also most people who buy dogs keep the breeders information etc so if there ever is a problem they can track it back to you. Hope that helps x

    As long as you are producing quality animals with their safety and happy lives in mind, I find no problem with it.
