Hello Paulie, you are welcome to the forum. In certain circumstances you could possibly be right about too much heat. But I have so much faith and admiration for this Lady I have no doubt she knows what she is doing. Keep us posted Rachel on how Daisy is getting on.

and sorry but what would i be doing with anything with a plug ?? sure a pup would chew that in a second and blow up :D
did you never here of a heat pad ? you put it in the microwave and put in under the blanket on one side so the pup can easily move to the other end if shes to warm affraid you can certainly use this thread to educate yourself about takeing in rescued pups , cheers xx

Rachel this is so hard to read about this little puppy but makes it that bit easier to know the puppy is with you and in safe hands, i know Rachelle a long time, i have to say if any1 thought me anything about dogs over the years needing help, cruelty cases and the ending off happy homed dogs its being you! i also have to mention ruby your pit bull, i've seen her rare 2 day old pups and kittens that would have had no chance just with the TLC of a human,
keep up the good work Rachel and ruby....and if we can ever do anything to help you here you know all you got to do is ask I love you

Daisy is doing great here, ye wouldnt even know she was blind , shes bounding around after the other dogs , and just wants to be involved in everything , she keeps trying to suckle form Ruby and even though shes spayed and never had pups she lies back and lets her , Baby Daisy ends up falling asleep on her or gives up and chews her tail lol xx

So the breeder of this dog brought her to the Vet's to be put down? Assuming he is a Hunter that is very uncommon practice...

Well I don't want to annoy anyone, but a guy up the road from me has approx 20 hounds (Foxhounds > Harriers > Beagles) and I know that if he got a pup like that in one of his litters he wouldn't be bringing to the Vet. All the dogs have to be working 100% or they're culled, there's nothing wrong with it, he know's his dogs can't be Pets. I was walking my 2 awhile back and he was out with a Foxhound (10months 25" tall) he was saying he wasn't performing and if he didn't start he'd be culled. that was about 3months ago. I don't think he started performing...

What i'm trying to say is, the pup you have, he was never going to be able to work, there'd be no point in keeping him as a hunter because they usually have enough dogs to be feeding, it would be a money drain.

Thats a realy old practice dates back to 100's of years. Now days for instances you are breeding show quality dogs.1 or 2 dogs out of the litter have faults but are perfectly healthy. They are normaly not culled(destroyed) they are sold or given away with conditions that they arent to be bred. That so called dog man is babaric and im sure alot of people would agree with me. The dog doesnt do what its meant to do. Ahh sure just kill it, i dont even think humanely either. If your Ruby had a litter and they all had faults and you couldnt old them, would you kill them?

I tried to stay out of this thread for a long time, I'm just saying where I live lots of people have hunting dogs, they are mainly farmers aswell, alot of them hunt because they lose sheep etc. to vermin like the Fox, they have no reason to keep a dog in their 'pack' if it can't work (i'm not saying they all hunt for pest control, they enjoy the craic that come's with the chase i'm sure)

It's differant with show dogs who might for example have a 'gay tail' or blue eyes' in APBT they're usually sold cheaper than siblings with better potential. As for the question about my dog, if the pups were born with not good confirmation I wouldn't kill them, they'd be sold to people who didn't want a dog to go to show's only as a great companion. If however for some reason they were all born with serious health defects, I would have to think about if they would be able to lead a life to the full. If not then yes I would in all probabilty put them down, I wouldn't enjoy it in the slightest but it would not be fair on them to leave them alive.

The breeder of Ruby, he has 1 male and 3 females, a person he sold a bitch to was going on holidays but she knew that her dog would be coming into heat, she sent her dog to him and when he was at work one of his kids let them out because Cesar was barking, needless to say Cesar did the job on his daughter and 2months later "out came 10 of the most solid little pups he had seen in years" but he thought about it and asked his Vet. He didn't think it would be fair on the owners and the dogs to old them on to people, he was thinking to the future what problems they might have as a result of the Line-Breeding involved.

these practices are being fighted against by people like me , poeple that love dogs and know there is a MAJOR problem of over breeding and not enough good homes , every single person that breeds there dog is adding ot the problem wether they see it or not , its a fact , there are too many unwanted dogs as there is , thats why the breeding bill has been established only a few weeks ago , it took a lot of good poele years or protesting to get that bill in , and to change the legaslation , its the not best , but it is a start and defintielya step in the right direction , and if anyone thinks that a pup should be pts or killed because of disability that can be manged well they shouldnt owna dog Crying or Very sad atleast this man brough it to the vet and the kind vet asked rescue for help , it could have been just drowned like many before her , but the laws are changeing and the public are starting to wake up and see the bigger picture and the problem with over breeding in Ireland , maybe if you fostered yourself or took the time to meet a special needs dog you would change your mind , as Daisy behaves like a normal puppy , you wouldnt know she was blind as she emphasis her other senses to make up for her sight , and her leg is unstable but causeing her no harm so will not need to be amputated for the foreseeable future :D

and as for your last post Harry an emergency spay would have solved all them poor 10 puppies being born , even better neuter/spay if he couldnt be a responsible owner xx

Any dog can be a pet Harry, one of the biggest dog men who has these type of dogs lives across the road from me. He is from Clare originaly, alot of people around my area work their terriers, spaniels and hounds. Im not mentioning his name over this. As for the money drain no point in having a dog that wont work. There is plenty of people who buy them sort of dogs, my friend has 2 working terriers. Im not getting into this, but i dont agree with your friend killing these dogs. He shouldnt be breeding so many if he cant afford to keep them..
