reduces the need for rescue groups
A responsible breeder:
Makes certain that German Pinschers being bred represent the breed well in body and mind and have proven these qualifications through competition in various dog sports.
Breeds German Pinschers with a long term vision in mind. Puppies not meeting the breeder's goals will be carefully placed in pet or performance homes with a spay/neuter agreement.
Tests for hereditary concerns that face German Pinschers.
Is knowledgeable of the German Pinschers in the pedigrees behind the dogs they breed in order to improve future generations and the breed as whole.
Does not just breed to see what will be produce.
Understands the genetics behind the sire and the dam.
Accepts the financial risk associated with raising German Pinschers. A responsible breeder does not breed for profit and rarely makes money off litters produced.
Accepts the emotional risk which can include possible death of the puppies or the mother.
Accepts the long term commitment of the German Pinschers Puppies. If for any reason at any time a buyer is unable to keep the German Pinscher, the breeder will want it back even if the dog is very old.
Will notify puppy buyers if a previously unknown hereditary issue occurs and alter the breeding program to prevent the issue from happening in the future.
Ascertain that all puppies go to carefully screen homes. If no home is available, a responsible breeder will properly raise the puppy until it has a family to love it. No puppy will ever to go a pet store, animal shelter or puppy mill. Responsible breeders do not add to the thousands of unwanted pets that are in shelters around the United States.
Makes sure all puppies are permanently identified before going to their new homes so that in the event the German Pinscher ends up in a rescue situation, it can be returned to its breeder.
