Hi everyone,
i would have posted this in the breeding section, but i have insufficient post to do so, :(
ok... first id like to say that this is a something that i'm don't take lightly and that i've put a lot of thought into, i have questions and i would also like any POSITIVE suggestions you may have :)
I was thinking of mating my little 2 year old male, Quatchi, i originally wanted to have a live-in gf, but because of a full house right now we are opting for someone else's little girl.
ok ...
first of all, my little boy humps his elephant teddy bear like a mad man and will some days go after it for hours on end, is it for sure that he will take to the female ?
the female is at the end of her heat, does this mean that it would be more difficult for her to conceive ?
i know that chihuahua size matters, the woman said it wouldn't matter, but my little Quatchi is a tad bigger then she is, and to my understanding the male should be at least 1 pound less then the female, could this injure her little female ?
and and last but not least, this would be my first time so i have no idea how payment works, she offered me an engagement ring in trade, would payment come only after the pregnancy is confirmed or right after the deed is being done ?
thank you so much for the taking the time to read this,

if anyone have any stories to share, i would love to read them.
thank you
:) :) :)

Breeding should only ever be done to improve the breed. Breeding a non registered dog will not
Improve the breed and will therefore just add to the over population of badly bred dogs. A vet would have no clue if your dog was show quality unless they judge or exhibit chihuahuas themselves. Vets have very little knowledge on pregnancy and whelping and even less on breed specifics.

Without his pedigree and a reputable registry holding it you do not know what faults there are behind him, nor if he comes from bigger lines. Buying a female dog to breed to him is just ridiculous there is no way you would know that she is the best match for him and vice versa.

Being a stud handler is NOT easy. Bitches cal snap bite, attack your dog and damage him. If she has a stricture in her vagina would you be able to do an internal and tell? What about if she panics when they tie and freaks out and you have two dogs with genital tears bleeding out?? You have to be able to guide the breeder through the pregnancy and advise on the whelping.

Would you know when the best time to mate a bitch is? Some bitches flag throughout their season?? Not everyon ovulated on the average 9-12 days. Would you be able to advise about progesterone testing, canine herpes, fading puppy syndrome etc? Breeding a bitch who isn't ready or is off the boil is likely to be extremely aggressive and for an unproven or newly proven dog it could stop their stud career.

Breeding a bigger male to a smaller female is just pet breeders rubbish. The size of the puppies comes from both gene pools. You need to know the pedigree of both dogs inside out, what sizes there have been in each litter if they are big dogs. Was the bitches dam a self whelper!

Like brodysmom said personalities change would
You be able to keep your dog in because he will wander if he gets out and smells a bitch in heat, he may challenge other males etc

My personal thought is neuter this dog if you truly want to breed do some more research look at the reasons on why you want to breed (done correctly it Is bank and heart breaking) get yourself a decent breed worthy dog, preferbly show him and make him up. Health test him and get yourself a
Decent mentor.
