WE spent a LOT of money (over $1,300) from a breeder in Bradenton FL, who specializes in teacup and toy Aussies. We wanted a small toy dog, as I can't lift over 20 lbs. His full-grown size was anticipated to be 6-10 lbs. I ended up with a 25+ 14.5 inch small MINI Aussie with a huge underbite and aggression issues which have put our children at risk, despite extensive training. The breeder said she "would help me if I lived closer." Also that she has never had an aggressive puppy before. Is this responsible breeding? What would a really ethical good breeder do in this situation?
