Coworker wants to breed his pup - need info to prevent

So one of my coworkers just told me that he wants to breed his little blue heeler! I asked him why and he said that he wanted a little "Sky" because he loved her so much. Asked him if the breeder made him sign a no breed contract and he said no. Says that he's going to sell the other pups because they can go for $ 500+. This pup is probably only about 6 months old! I'm looking for previous threads on BYB to give him to try and deter him - anyone know of sites to also send him to? I tried telling him that it's a lot of strain on the pup, he'll need money for vet bills, food, shots etc for the pups, that she and the father should have been checked for genetics defects and titled etc... but he said his friend did it and it was easy :-( I'd like to print him some info so that he doens't think that I'm just talking my yap off.

Thanks.

Go to the ask the vet forum and the new post from today titled "female Pomeranian". There are a few good links in that post.

I asked him why and he said that he wanted a little "Sky" because he loved her so much.

Does he think puppies are clones? He could get puppies that are nothing like their mother.

Better tell him to schedule his holidays accordingly, in case he has to hand feed newborns day and night.

This is certainly not a breed for everyone, so he better have a bunch of approved and knowledgeable homes lined up.

Here are bunch of great links that certainly should deter him if he has any sense at all.
