This is a copy of Rahne's public post on the Debate group which I was wondering if anyone has continued to follow up on the pups.
Allison did brought this up back in 2012. Clearly there have been longer waiting pups outside the Blu breeders and RPK.It seems that lately more and more breeders are having trouble selling their pups... not all but right now there are 3 breeders who still have pups for sale. In Bulgaria: 4/5 puppies, 6 months old. In Sweden 4 puppies, 4 months old, and in the UK: 7 puppies, 11 weeks old. Do you think that maybe there is too much breeding going on at the moment?
In 2010 = 5 litters born (outside of the Blues and Alba)
In 2011 = 1 litter born (outside of the Blues and Alba)
In 2012 = 6 litters born (outside of the Blues and Alba)
In 2013 = 11 litters born (outside of the Blues and Alba)
In 2014, first half = 10 litters born (outside of the Blues and Alba)
Fortunately, Canada has yet to experience this problem because we only have two breeders at the moment but I really hope that we don't end up with this chaotic supply of long-waiting pups when we do have more breeders here. I'd be furious for sure but I also understand that we can't really control how many pups a dam may naturally produce within that one litter. Of course, this does not mean a breeder can't refrain from allowing an untimely mating (especially one that may had happened while the owners were not at home) from taking place plus I am fully aware that accidents do happen and have happened at times even with reputable breeders.
While I don't know any good solutions for the situations happening over the pond (if some of the problems are still ongoing), I do think perhaps slowing down a little bit on the breedings in the future whenever possible may be a good preventative measure in order to mitigate any of these crisis in the future should they occur.
Whoo, glad I finally let out that frustration after holding it for too long.
