Under no circumstances will any GSRRR dog be allowed to be used for breeding. Due to this we have a strict neutering policy because regardless of all the good will in the world, it is the only 100% guaranteed way of preventing accidents.
It is our policy that all dogs will be neutered or spayed before rehoming unless:
- The dog is too young
- There is a medical reason and there is a veterinary concern that the dog would not survive the procedure or the procedure would have severe detrimental effects upon the dogs health.
All puppies that are rehomed from GSRRR will be neutered when they are 6 months old by our own vet (Glenn Veterinary Clinic). We will make no exceptions and this is not negotiable.
We also will not rehome any dog to a household with an entire dog. The reasons for this are:
- Accidental breeding can take place between an unneutered male and female.
- There is a risk that there will be aggression problems/behavioural difficulties amongst two dogs of the same sex, especially if more than one is entire.
Ultimately, this means that if your male or female dog is unneutered, we will not rehome a dog to you. In exceptional circumstances we will consider rehoming a neutered dog to a household with one entire dog, but these situations are rare.
