I got these two dogs from a breeder. She was going to take them to a shelter because she was finished with them. The female was already pregnant. She gave me their papers to prove they were pure breed. I told her I was going to get them fixed so I didn't need them. Then when I took her to the vet he said she was already pregnant. I am just registering the puppies on a spay / neuter contract. After they are spayed or neutered they can register them if they want to. I love these dogs. They are very sweet and don't deserve to end up in a shelter. I have found homes for all of them but one. Thanks for the information and your time.
