DeeLind7 - Honestly, I'd rather he surrender them to us than keep breeding them. The two 9 month old's we got in today are lucky; they got out of that situation before he could use them to produce more puppies.

Only the best examples of the breed should reproduce and while these four are beautiful and sweet, they are by no means breeding quality dogs. They are off to our spay/neuter trip on Thursday!

Can't agree more! Thinning out his stock! YUCK but, yes glad they are in better hands in what I am crossing my fingers is a no kill shelter?? Yes, G-d bless you for what you do! I saw a video streaming on you tube a while back called "Earthlings". It is about how we treat the animals that share this earth with us and... no surprise, it was pretty dark!
In case you have not made this "up north" connection yet, I have heard nothing but great things about this local no kill shelter Welcome! ~~ The Animal Haven in Connecticut.

I'm happy the pups are where they are now too. It was the word he used that sent me over the top... "stock." This guy is nothing more than a back yard puppy mill breeder and should be shut down, in my opinion.

We have a "Texas Heeler" that my daughter rescued....he was born to a rescue and she adopted him when he was 3 days old....he's gorgeous with a very unique color pattern...he's smart, stubborn, rowdy, funny and still clumsy! He's also HUGE!!! at 3 wks he weighed 5lbs....he's almost 12 weeks now and weighs 20 lbs! the biggest issue we've had has been that nipping!...and not just at our heels! he actually nipped my rear-end last night and I'm really tall so I was surprised to say the least!lol! Trying to research how to handle this and get control of those teeth so he doesn't get himself in trouble. This picture was at 3 weeks.......

That is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen!

My dog is probably a blue heeler/border collie mix. In some circles they might be calling him a Texas Heeler. Frodo was in several homes before I got him. I wasn't told this from his last owner, but there were behavioral issues. The nipping was one of them. In fact, before I really caught on to how I need to be firm and consistent with him, the nipping got me in some real legal trouble. That one's a long story. One of the things I did right away was to get with a trainer. These dogs have years and years of genetics in them that tells them to chase things and they are notoriously mouthy. It is not aggressive or dangerous, but can be enormously misinterpreted by the non-dog people.

They can be taught that the nipping is unacceptable and they are very smart so they can learn that despite genetics. When puppies nip in play is the first opportunity for teaching. A lot of times people won't correct that because it seems cute and harmless. Well, it's not harmless when the dog weighs 50 pounds! I think that's what happened with my dog, nobody was willing to take the time to work with him before I got him as an adult dog.

A friend of my son brought over an Aussie puppy. We were all sitting in a circle on the ground playing with him. He was nipping everyone playfully. When he did that to me, all I had to do was remove my hands from his reach and say "No" firmly. From then on he would still come to me but didn't nip me anymore.

If you're experienced with herding breeds you can probably teach him yourself. I wasn't, so I worked with a trainer and still continue to do so because it's good for his socialization.
