Too Many Puppies

What are the consequences of not desexing?

This is what can potentially happen from just one dog. We've used our dog Jools who we adopted from the Pound when she was 6 years old as an example because we've often thought about what happened to all of her offspring. Jools was a well loved dog (an old man's little jewel), but she waited at the Pound for four months because no-one wanted her.

Better case scenario

What happens if Jools and her descendants have only one the litter each. Many people want their dog to have one litter and when I was young and idealistic I did too, just the one litter after all. But, now I wonder what happened to all the puppies and what misery did I cause?
