Breeding Responsibly

Breeding | Buying a puppy | Picking the right puppy | Rescuing a dog


There are millions of dogs put to death each year in this country due to a lack of homes. Many of these dogs are purebred Labs. To breed a dog without researching the pros and cons first is unethical. Not having prior knowledge to what it takes to breed responsibly is no excuse. Please check out the following links regarding breeding your dog. These are the best links and information I have found on the subject.
