    She is such a pretty lady !
    I do pray she finds a good home...and soon !!
    I have a question for you. Why do some breeders sell their females after they retire them?
    I see it happen here in the United States too.
    I guess I can't see having a dog if it's only purpose is to produce pups..and then get rid of it.
    ...but that's just me.

    I know why they do it. If you supplement your income by breeding dogs then having a non producing bitch is a strain on the financial resources, so they are rehomed - for money of course. The vacancy is then filled with another pup or young bitch to continue the breeding cycle and keep the money flowing. Sorry, I don't like it. What comes in through my door as a pup spends it's life with me; end of.

    I sort of figured that was the case. Sad actually that some people are so selfish and only care about $$.
    Breaks my heart!
    I agree w/ you 100%. If we get a pup..or a dog...it becomes part of the family..we love it as such.
    It lives out the rest of it's life / us.
    At least this little Sadie will finally get the loves she deserves. I am praying someone will be willing to give her a forever home. I think she is beautiful !!

    Oh paws crossed for you Karen




    The other side of rehoming ex breeding bitches is that they then get lots of individual attention rather than just being one of many...also as they get older it can be hard for them to cope with lots of young dogs and puppies around - and leaping all over them It obviously is also a strain on the finances, which is why many breeders do it, but I would personally prefer that they were found homes rather than living the rest of their lives in outside kennels. Some are lucky enough to live indoors, but still get only a small share of the breeder's attention. As most Cavaliers suffer with health problems as they age, and many of us know how hard that can be to manage in terms of sheer physical time, emotions and financial considerations, surely it is better that they are in a family?

    I have rehomed quite a few retired breeding bitches and dogs, they have blossomed in a home environment and loved the attention, getting out for walks every day, and even going on holiday and new adventures.

    It would be lovely to think that all breeders could keep all their oldies, but I have known of situations where they then end up with lots of old dogs that they cannot care for properly
