OK Folks Each and every one is entitled to an option of their own and if you think I am a bad breeder that’s ok because I know most of you haven’t a clue about being a good breeder. Five litters in a dogs life is not over breeding!! Over breeding is breeding a bitch every heat cycle until she drops over dead and I would have to say that 60%-80% of breeders breed that way; they farm dogs not raise, it a business not a love!! Every dog is individual—some dogs can be bred more than others in a life time; it all depends on how each dog copes with each litter. Poor dog? If you could have seen how having pups made Maddie happy and gave her more purpose and meaning in her life besides just being a family pet you would not call her a Poor dog. If Maddie could talk she would tell you to shut up! My wife has had five children all close together I will have to ask her if she thinks she been over bred!
