There are a lot of terrible people in this world. Although that seems pretty harsh, it’s hard to see the bright side when horrible things are happening all around us every day. However, there are also a lot of wonderful people in this world! We know our readers understand the importance of staying up to date on the latest information. We work hard to bring that information to you. Today we talk about a growing problem in America: Backyard Breeding.

Backyard breeders aren’t good for dogs. People want to know where their dogs come from. That much is obvious. We have the right to know our pets genetic background. This is especially true when we’re buying them! It’s not a term many people have ever heard! After all, if folks choose to purchase their animals they usually do it through a reputable breeder. These breeders generally keep a tight leash on the genetics they’re combining, and watch for genetic health problems. These hardworking dog lovers do what they can to keep their favorite breed healthy, stable, and pure. Backyard breeding doesn’t accomplish any of that. People who do this are in it only for the money. They many times use lies to sell their puppies, misleading people about temperament, breed, and lineage.

Here are some thoughts from paws.org about backyard breeding, and why it’s causing such a problem.

Look for these red flags:

  • The seller has many types of purebreds or “designer” hybrid breeds being sold at less than six weeks old.
  • Breeders who are reluctant to show potential customers the entire premises on which animals are being bred and kept.
  • Breeders who don’t ask a lot of questions of potential buyers.
  • No guarantees-responsible breeders make a commitment to take back the pet at anytime during the animal’s life, no matter the reason.

Because puppy mills and backyard breeders choose profit over animal welfare, their animals typically do not receive proper veterinary care. Animals may seem healthy at first but later show issues like congenital eye and hip defects, parasites or even the deadly Parvovirus.

Backyard breeders

Backyard breeders are also motivated by profit. Ads from these unscrupulous breeders fill the classifieds. Backyard breeders may appear to be the nice neighbor next door-in fact, even seemingly good-intentioned breeders may treat their breeding pairs as family pets. However, continuously breeding animals for years to produce litters for a profit still jeopardizes the animals’ welfare.

Some backyard breeders may only breed their family dog once in awhile, but they often are not knowledgeable on how to breed responsibly, such as screening for genetic defects. Responsible, proper breeding entails much more than simply putting two dogs together.
