Yes, my dogs are spayed and neutered, too. Honestly, even if my girl was good enough quality to breed, I would not risk it. I love her too much to take a chance with her life. It is so common for chis to have problems whelping....

I've heard stories about dogs attacking (and killing) other dogs that get too close to thier puppies. With two chis already running around your house would you be prepared if one of them accidentally got too close? I don't know a lot about breeding but this whole situation just doesn't feel right to me.

That is true I'm sure, and you must feel rather attacked. A lot of people on this forum have rescued and do rescue pets that have been thrown away when their perfect homes didn't work out. Seen the worst of cases, horrible abuse, ect.

"The HSUS estimates that animal shelters care for between 6-8 million dogs and cats every year in the United States, of whom approximately 3-4 million are euthanized. At this time The HSUS can only estimate these figures because there is no central data reporting agency for animal shelters.

This overpopulation of companion animals is widely acknowledged across the country by professionals and experts in the animal welfare field. Overpopulation is a tragedy. There are simply not enough responsible homes for all of these wonderful, innocent animals. At this point in time, it would be impossible to humanely house every unwanted animal in the United States."

I don't think you backyard breeding 1 Chihuahua and responsibly placing the resulting few puppies with family is going to significantly add to the overpopulation problem. The first step would be to get a female and raise her, see how you feel then. Personally I wouldn't breed my intact female because I don't want to hurt her. I don't want her puppies taken away from her. I think it would put her through the hell of labor, without the benefit of watching her children grow up. I definitely wouldn't want to give her babies away as presents. Dogs are different then people, but they have feelings and emotions. She get's sad, depressed, lonely, and has gone off her food and moped for weeks/months when we gave up our Rottie and when 2 of our fosters we had for a long time went to forever homes. They were her family and she was sad. Plus, I don't think she would make a great mom, maybe I don't give her enough credit but we will never know. Not all dogs make good mommies, just like not every human females should be a mom. I think it's ultimately up to you.

Sorry but I am female human and watch births of female dogs , what they went through and there is no such thing as a (very nice labor). My daughter and her husband have a male and female pug, that is why I have a pug. I tried to talk her out of mating them, she let it happen. The night Sasha, the mom, was having her babies, they needed help, 2 in the morning.I had to go over there, the pug I have was not breathing, my daughter had to keep rubbing her over and over, while she was crying over what Sasha was going through. My son in law had to pull every baby out, then another one not breathing. She had 5, they grew up fine, I ended up taking the runt as the other were not letting her nurse, I had to hand feed her for weeks, of course I ended up keeping her, but never planned to get a pug. The pain of birth is unbelievable and that is if things are going right. I would never do that to any of my dogs.
