Awww poor things :o I never actually knew about that. Truthfully if my dog didn't have the impaired vision, I MIGHT keep him intact, but that is iffy. o_o yikes...dogs getting cancer...

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

I know that isn't the only thing causing cancer, but it reduces the chance. Especially if you're not breeding the dog, why not.

Just a personal opinion, unless you are a registered breeder you should spay and neuter your dogs, especially if they are pits. On top of the health benefits, it doesn't help the breeds image when people have accidental litters and they are giving them away to random people. I know most people think they would be more responsible than that and only give the dogs to responsible owners, but when you have 10 pit puppies that are getting on 2-3 mo old and you are overwhelmed you may not be so responsible.

I totally agree. But people don't care and that is why we will most likely forever euthanize animals, because there are too many animals. The only way out of euthanizing is to make spay/neuter laws.

Yeah some people in my area are trying to make that possible. I hope they do! I see way too many pit bull puppies on friggin craigslist. It's rly sad. I flag away- CL has rules- no breeding, no sales.

Here the SPCA... about half are pitbulls or pitbull crosses. The other half are usually rescued from the reserve, and are shepherds :/
