I have a friend whose mother bred dauchunds (sp?) for many years. She recently purchased a Maltepoo and after they got home and went to the vet found out the dog had mange. When she attempted to call the breeder the phone number was no longer in service.
Her mom wants to breed this puppy. She doesn't know any health history or anything, can't reach the breeder. She has a friend who also purchase a Maltepoo, but from another breeder, and that's the male they're going to use. I thought to breed them you used a Maltese and a Mini Poodle. They're going to just have little tiny "mutts" aren't they? I questioned my friend about it but she didn't see any problems, said she even mentioned it to their vet and he said it would be fine. Also said they could go ahead and breed her on her second heat cycle even if it's before she's a year old. All of this worries me but I don't know anything about breeding. Does it sound strange? Can't imagine it would be good for the little puppies or the mama.
