My yard sale extravaganza
« on: September 04, 2009, 02:49:49 PM »
I had a yard sale a few weeks ago, and one of the ladies that stopped started asking me about my boxer babies.  She started telling me that she watche my yard for several years and loved seeing all my boxers, and asked me how often I had litters, etc...  She then proceeded to tell me that if I ever needed a stud dog, she had a beautiful white male that was CKC (not canadian) registered, and that she would gladly let me use him for a return puppy..... :o
I then proceeded to tell her, that white Boxers weren't to be bred from and that I health test all of my dogs, and that my goal is to get a really  nice show quality puppy from one of my own breedings.  I then told her that I haven't had a litter since 2005, and that I probably won't be breeding again until Spring (which I still don't know for sure, it is pending the rest of Aggie's health tests).
This was one of the reasons I left my job as a VT, because it AMAZED me at how many Back yard boxer breeders there are in my area, especially ones that breed white boxers (even two that were deaf white boxers).  When they heard I was a young Boxer breeder, they jumped at the chance of snagging me as a prospective bitch owner....  It made me sick, and as a Tech I wasn't allowed to chew them out, and tell them you can't possibly think that is right for the breed.....

Did it seem like he was listening to you when you told him about not breeding a white boxer or do you think he is going to be stalking other boxer bitch owners.

She seemed like a definite bitch stalker.   :furious3:
As soon as I said about health testing, she was going on and on about how beautiful he was, and how she wanted to double register him (with some kc I never heard of), and how it would be so nice to find a local breeder here to use her male...  I just said "Goodbye" and walked in my house...

 :wall:  *sigh* It amazes me that people just jump into breeding dogs (and children) without doing research.
