    Default Wesley might get a big sister!!

    I've been contacted by an owner who may not be able to keep her 7 month old Blenheim girl. I'm sad for her but excited for me!

    I will keep you updated when I hear more, but it sounds like a great fit!

    Well sure enough her pup was from a pet store and she paid a bundle to bring home a puppy that had kennel cough.

    Backyard breeders are REALLY starting to p*ss me off.....

    Anyway.... I told her to make sure she's making the best decision for herself and her pup, as she just can't give her the attention she needs. And we'll be talking more in the morning.

    So far....

    7 month old Blenheim female
    Needs to be spayed
    Needs to be microchipped
    Needs to be potty trained

    I hope it works out, because at least I'd be able to put in the work this dog needs. I just hope she understands that there's no way she can get near the $2000 back that she paid for her, whether it's with me, or with any other potential buyer....

    Which brings me to start a new topic....

    I'm going to move this thread to the general section as this particular case isn't a breed rescue situation.

    Ok, so she's really interested and would like me to come by tonight.

    Seeing as Lady isn't spayed and is 7 months, should I immediately schedule it if I get her? Wesley is 4 months and will be neutered at 6 months.

    Thanks!

    I would take her into the vet for an all-over check out and get advice on when she should be spayed. I think it would be a complete dog-by-dog basis. I hope all works out! I know you have been wanting another doggy so bad!

    As she has a possibly dodgy background, my first call would be the vet. Many think a spay before a first season is beneficial, anyway (reckoned to reduce the chances of mammary tumours). I'm not sure how early a boy is sexualy mature (ie producing active sperm), but there is always the exception, who matures earlier than normal.

    On one of the many vet programmes, over here, was a 'sick' Blenheim, only very young, who gave birth, at the vets, to three puppies (luckily healthy, but tiny ) , when she had been bought from someone who only had puppies together , so Dad was a baby , too.

    I agree about seeing a vet 1st. I don't see why you should pay her, you're doing her a favour. I'll look at your other thread again to see what everyone else thinks.
