I belong to my local freecycle and i just got an email from someone offering a 10mo dobe boy... apparently he has been returned to his breeder (the postee) because of a change in circumstances... she is trying to find him another home but that he has an enlarged jaw... she says she is struggling because she wants someone who will guarantee not to breed from him.

In the same email she is boasting about his fab bloodlines and how his breeding is the countrys top.... should I write back and state the bleedin' obvious?!

Write back and tell her to get his nuts off first and then, hey presto, dog can't be bred from no matter how much someone tries!!

Thats what I meant (and forgot to write!), stunned that a breeder wouldn't do this of her own initiative!

I think you should post a link and we should all tell her

Reading a lot of posts on here recently one thing stands out to me. When I KC registered my puppies I always used to include an endorsement "not to be bred from". This endorsement could only be removed by myself, and for me to do this the animal would have to be hip scored, and I would have to see it to assess its quality. I actually never had anyone ask me to do this, one couple did consider breeding from their male, who had a lovely temperament and low hip score but wasn't really good enough. It was the classic , a lot of people had admired him and wanted to use him. Luckily they understood what I was saying and decided against it.
It would seem that nowadays not many people apply this endorsement (obviously not relevant with crosses as pups would not be kc registered) but in cases like this dobe would make things simpler. Perhaps the way for the kc to go would be to apply restrictions to ALL dogs, and only the quality ones have them removed so they could be bred from, but think thats unlike to happen, think how it would affect their income

I think quite a lot of people still do include the endorsement, my Mum's first cocker had it and also had it removed after he was deemed worthy

I just don't think it is enough to stop people

I've heard of people managing to register pups despite the endorsement still being in place on the parents.
