|Hi, this was my first time purchasing a puppy rather than rescuing. I wanted an Aussie and after years of rescuing (mainly Pits) I decided to "spoil" myself and get a purebred.
So here's my situation.
The woman I bought Chaos from says both parents are AKC, but she's not done paying off dad so she doesn't have his papers in hand yet. They're both registered with different groups as well.
She wants me to keep Chaos unaltered as she says we can still get him registered and she possibly wants to breed him in the future (I don't necessarily have an issue with it as long as both dogs are healthy and have healthy pedigrees).
My vet/boss is a breeder as well, but she sees no reason in keeping Chaos intact. She also told me there's no way he can be registered now since his litter wasn't registered.
This is where my rebellion comes into play... She's breeding dogs that I don't think should have puppies. Her male has horrible allergies, along with the female she's going to breed in May. Her last litter 1/2 the puppies were white faced and she wanted to put them down AND the other half are psycho and mean. So part of me wants to find a way to get my boy registered and prove he can do better than hers... I know it's bad.
Anyways, is Chaos' breeder right when she said he can still be registered and good enough to breed? Or should I just get him neutered and say whatever about the papers?
I've never done purebreds, and if I could've found the right dog for my family in the last year or so, I would have rescued instead... Sorry...
