Never posted here before so please be kind.

My sister has cockerpoos. A brother and sister.

She’s just had another litter of 8 puppies and is looking to sell them for megabucks.

Would you buy one based on their genes?

Hell no - why did she think this was a good idea. Mind you I guess she won't tell people.

TooOldForThisWhoCares Mon 14-Jan-19 20:58:59

No! Did she mate them deliberately!?

Your sister is a fucking disgrace.

If i was to spend megabucks on a puppy id want a full health check and for it to be registered with a kennel club. (Do cockapoos have a kennel club?) If she did this on purpose that is really really shocking.

Yeah that’s illegal..

NO to the mating.
NO to the backyard breeding.
NO to the selling 'for megabucks' despite clearly having done no research into anything related to their health or wellbeing.

And that's being kind.

Omg what a fucking idiot she is and the poor puppies

Calzone Mon 14-Jan-19 21:04:19

The poor bitch is on her second litter and yes, they did it deliberately.

I’m so upset about it.

Also, when you say 'another litter'... has she done this before??

notsurewhatshappening Mon 14-Jan-19 21:06:51

So wrong

notsurewhatshappening Mon 14-Jan-19 21:07:10

Wrong diddly wrong wrong.

Ethel80 Mon 14-Jan-19 21:07:57

Your sister is disgraceful. Will she be telling prospective owners that they are brother and sister and will they be having any health checks?

WatcherOfTheNight Mon 14-Jan-19 21:08:13

No way ! Why would she do that ??This one of the reasons why there are unhealthy puppies about sad
I hope she is honest about this with potential buyers

Chesneyhawkes1 Mon 14-Jan-19 21:08:41

No that's wrong. I understand line breeding but no one would ever do that close on purpose

She had 6 puppies 18 months ago.
2 starved to death from cleft palates. 😭😭😭😭

She had 8 puppies today and 1 died as the runt of the litter.

Cockerpoos can't be registered with the Kennel Club. It's not a registered breed standard. They are cross breeds
What your sister has done is fucking disgraceful

WatcherOfTheNight Mon 14-Jan-19 21:17:28

OMG calzone sadthis is horrific
Did she take the pups with clefts to the vets ?

Can you try & speak to her ? Put a stop to it?

ReaganSomerset Mon 14-Jan-19 21:20:21

No. No no no no no. Tell the rspca. I don't know if they could do anything though. And why the heck didn't they seek treatment for her cleft palate puppies, or at least have them humanly put to sleep? Poor little things. sad

Calzone Mon 14-Jan-19 21:24:30

They don’t have pet insurance so they didn’t know the puppies had deformities until afterwards when a friend told them.

This can’t be for real? Breeding brother and sister then not taking them to the vet because they don’t have insurance? Presumably they went to the vets for jabs and microchip?

StartingGrid Mon 14-Jan-19 21:29:50

Your sister needs a slap... I'd report her to the RSPCA

SlowlyShrinking Mon 14-Jan-19 21:31:20

I would report her too. It’s a horrible thing to do to them all.
