All about Animal Breeders !

Esperanza

Animal Breeders Usually breed animals for show. They work genetics to get a perfect animal. Kind of like Secretariat . A lot of people didn't think that he could keep his pace because his father didn't have good stamina.Animal breeders will also just breed the same animal over again . They could just be known as a golden retriever breeder or cat breeder.Most animals they breed are pure blood. Exceptions are : Golden-doodles. they are a mix of poodles and golden retrievers .Usually if you are breeding small animals (cats ,dogs, bunnies etc.) You don't need a license . Big animal breeders- exotic breeders ( giraffes, tigers, lions ).They will need to get a bachelors degree in Veterinary science , People have to be care full where they buy there pets . IF they buy them from a pet store from lets say a mall… they wont know anything about the dogs history of the animal . If u buy from a breeder then you will maybe know more about the animals history of health and it's personality . Most dogs that are bought from pet stores usually come from places called puppy mills . Puppy mills are places when people breed the same dogs over and over again without rest. The puppies that are born to theses parents are either damaged (missing body parts , body parts don't work) Or they are fine and used for the same purpose as there parents. The money that most breeders earn is 37,230
