I'll mention too...as I just found this thread...it's increasingly harder for breeders of ANY breed to find homes for puppies....just as Diana and others mentioned.
I am the puppy coordinator for an Assistance Dog group, I find the puppies to put in the program. I can't tell you how many breeders and "breeders" are contacting me right now to donate puppies...of all different breeds. They can't get rid of them. I have a breeder right now who NEVER wanted to give us another dog...she was very disappointed in the way her dogs before turned out (with our group). Now she's offering us one or more. This is a GOOD breeder with national recognition in her breed, health testing out the wazoo, titles on both ends of her dogs...these dogs are amazing examples of their breed. Yet, she's got a bunch of them sitting around her house.
I've got a really good friend with puppies also that can't find homes. Two really well-bred TOY breed pups...again, health tested parents, great lines, show & performance parents, etc. Can't find homes for them.
Plus they're super cute. No one wants a puppy now...no matter what the purchase price is (both breeders mentioned have lowered their prices).
No matter if the dogs are really superb, great specimens of their breed, it's a bad time to breed. Simple as that.
