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
:) :) :)

Oh no please don't think you're being judged,it's we hate people who just breed for money and never think about the poor puppies or where they will end up.I'm glad you changed your mind about that woman,and i'm sure what has been said isn't directed at you
Breeding is a touchy subject chihuahuamama. You probably already knew that as you warned us to be "nice" in your first post. :) Sometimes these discussions can deteriorate and cause hurt feelings which would never be my intent or anyone's else's on here.

Most people really love their dogs and they are part of the family and thinking about having puppies sounds really fun and enticing! It's great that you came on here asking questions BEFORE you bred your dog. That's awesome!!

If I sounded like I was judging you, I'm sorry for that.
Getting your own female is a worse idea.

First: You don't know if the female you are breeding with be good health. Are you willing to accept if she has luxating patella you would have to spay her and not breed?

second: I'm not going to rant to you about the dangers and cost since u already seem to know but just remember the vast majority of chi's don't give birth naturally and of course this could mean a 3am emergency vet surgery. Which does have risks for her or him, if while they are tied she freaks out and runs she can tear him and there is nothing u can do : (

4: I would find a breeder in your area and learn from them, perhaps help out with a whelping that way you undertand fully and 100% what you are getting into. U've done this much research you might as well go all the way right?

5: Just remember as well, if anything happens you could have multiple puppies returned to you. Are you willing to accept unhomed puppies. Are you willing to do the work to ensure that they are going to a good home? A home where your puppies get just as good care as your own?

THink about it there is a lot to learn and you aren't going to make money from it. Ethical breeders that invest everything they have time/money into each litter. If you really want to do this and your heart is set on it then do it the right way, These are living creatures so really really think it through.

I think she has had all the information on this subject now
I hope you don't feel judged.. I think everyone just wants to give you all of te information so you know what you are in for. I understand it can be a touchy subject though! It's great that you came here asking before you jumped in.
I'm really sorry if you felt judged, that wasn't my intention at all! i love my baby girls with everything i have, and i was super super close to breeding my oldest girl, i loved the idea of having a piece of her with me for ever. The only thing that stopped me was her size, as an experienced breeder i know very well had both momma and babies die while whelping, is both scared me and broke my heart, if i spoke harshly at all, i apologize, i just didn't want you to risk losing your fur baby, or have him injured. wanting to keep a piece of your baby out there in the world forever is completely understandable!
Thanks everyone.

breedng is a touchy subject no matter what animal it is, doesnt matter if it is a mammal or not, breeding is not knew to me, i breed inverts (tarantulas and stuff, and you may say that is not the same thing but there genus and species are extremely important, which means only PERFECT specimens of the are supposed to be bred) my risk there is expensive, rare specimens being eaten by females
and i sorta knew i was gonna get people all psycho by asking, and i dont blame them, i just wish i would have had the respect of an objective opinions,

and bordysmom, yours was perfect, you got me with the line that if im not prepared for my mama's boy to change... that was it. and that was the beginning. truth is i dont want him to. thank you so much for writing the info and the get to my heart parts.

and i also feel the need to say that for me it will never be for the money, he is my everything, to me he is a gift from God, he came into my life when i needed it most.

oh and one last thing, just for fun facts, if i was going to buy a female, i would have done the research, met several people and made sure that she would have been the best she could be for him, i got HIM for a reputable breeder and i would have gotten a female from one also. I am not stupid and incompetent just because i asked a question on the subject.

i still regret having started this post though.

all that being said, im happy i changed my mind, i pretty much dreamt about it all night, and i really appreciate the info i did receive. sincerely, thank you

and thank you again Michele :)
