Unfortunately, a friend of mine doesn't seem to understand it. She has three dogs, and one of them she has decided will have puppies. She doesn't really have the money or the place to keep three dogs, her grandmother has paid for most of the dogs vet care, but I'm wondering who will be paying for the puppies? I told her to spay the female, but she refused. So I guess I'm posting here to vent my frustration and kinda make a note that if anyones looking for a puppy sometime in the next 6 months, they'll be some available. I know the father was a sharpei mix(looks more like a husky/german shepard), and the mother is a pit/lab mix. I think that after all this, I'm just going to get my dog spayed. I'm guessing that if I really want to raise a litter of puppies, I'll just rescue a pregnant dog and enjoy the endless hours of cleaning up puppy mess, and all the joys of housetraining, not to mention the bill for puppy vaccinations.
