I’m new on wordpress, so it may take me a bit to get head long in,but ….. I raise and breed American Bulldogs. We breed once a year,because we do not want to add dogs in to the world that may not be wanted,when there are so many now. I have conflicts with people all the time about the fact that I breed my dogs,they are intact,when there are so many dogs that need homes in shelters .I feel that resuing is valient,but their are a series of important issues to consider first ie. your ability to handle physical,mental issues an abused dog may have. Do you have children? Willing to take a chance on a mature dog with an unknown history around your child? What’s your thoughts?
