|Comment||Thank you Karen, we are going to look into low cost spay and neuter tomorrow. They do not do breeder's dogs, so mine were altered at my regular and expensive vet. I know she will xray her for $40. My daughter wants someone to foster her and I understand her attachment. She is no longer living independantly which means she will be moving around and I think she needs to let go to a stable home, even if I have to put more money that I want. I do not believe in giving dogs to anyone. Bull terriers seem to attact young single people, she would make a great family dog. My vet would not spay pregnant but that was my dame who she knew I bred and showed. I also took very good care of the puppies and made sure they were up to date on shots, not let go prior to 8 weeks and crate trained. I am not sure I am ready to do it again. I thought I had both my kids grown and out and the dogs retired, puppies is not in the plan. Thank you so much for afirming what I need to do. Betsy|

I have been showing miniature schnauzers in conformation, obedience, and earthdog for forty years, and am a professional dog groomer. I am not a veterinarian and cannot answer questions of a veterinary nature. However, I can give my opinion or share some experiences on some health issues. Everyone should remember that this is a volunteer service, and few of us are up late into the night. Medical emergencies require a veterinary visit, or at least a telephone call... not an internet question which might not be viewed and answered until hours later. If your dog is sick or injured, it should be seen by a licensed professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
I have taught obedience classes and have taught people how to groom for many years.
