Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

    I believe you can do so on Honestly, you'll need more than just papers that prove his being purebred. You'll need papers as proof that he has been tested by and passed genetic health tests by OFA (Orthepetic Foundation for Animals) and/or PennHip, CERF (Canine Eye Research Foundation), cardiac, thyroid, and others that go with his breed. You'll also need extensive knowledge on his pedigree/lines to determine if he is breeding quality, in addition to making sure that he fits his breed standard exceptionally well, and that he can do work (such as Agility) and do it well, and is thus structurally sound. And he has to have the appropiate temperament for his breed. It helps to have knowledge in genetics, too. Did you know that dogs can spread sexually transmitted diseases when breeding? Do you know how to properly supervise a mating? Do you have to knowledge to correctly raise a litter? There is a lot to it. As you can see, there is much more to breeding that most people realize. Breeding, even just studding, isn't exactly simple...far from it, rather. To gain all of the necessary knowledge, you need at the very least two years of very thorough research. And to spend time with a reputable and experienced mentor, as book-learning alone isn't enough. I've been studying dog breeding and the ethics involved for the past 3plus years myself. My website is an *introduction* to the world of responsible dog breeding: ~Tiffany, breeder-in-training

    Did you get papers from the person you got the dog from. The litter she came from would have had to been registered with AKC so that you can get papers on her. GO back and talk to that person and go fromthere
