Would you buy puppies from brother/sister parents?

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.

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.

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.

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

I’m so upset about it.

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

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

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

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

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?

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

Apparently the dogs have been microchipped and had their jabs and the vet told them it was fine to breed as they would in the wild.
