I got a healthy 2 month old JRT puppy at a shelter. she's beautiful. Sounds like maybe you should really be educated more about breeding before you start, because if you aren't doing this professionally, and just want the puppies, you can find really cute JRTs in rescues and shelters. And if you're asking this question, it seems like you haven't researched breeding enough IMO. (if i offended you i'm sorry)
and the only 2 reasons I reply to questions like this about breeding your dogs when you are not a breeder are
1. you may not know that by not spaying or neutering usually means reproductive cancers in your pets (I found this out too late when I had my first dog he developed testicular cancer which is common if not removed but it was too late to remove his by then) So i want to let you know if you were like me and didn't know.
2. I feel bad about so many strays on the street and all the animals in shelters 10-12 million animals in the US are euthanized each year in shelters because of overpopulation
I feel like people get defensive about this because they think "its my pet and i can do whatever i want it's my choice". That's true as long as they're not abusing or neglecting the animal (IMO). But i still feel its important to just remind people about why spaying/neutering is important in case they didnt know! And no one without a good knowledge of breeding and how to care for the mother and pups should breed anyway right?? I still see all these thumbs down for people who say "spay/neuter". There's no police involved, it's just people who really do care about all the stray animals and crowded shelters.
I want to do whatever i can to prevent horrible news like what I posted here
if it pisses some people off forme to remind about fixing your pets, so be it. But my wish is to do it as offensivelessly as possible, i hope it at least brings awareness

Would anybody be willing to share their views on tanning beds and their connection to causing skin cancer?
If you'd like to talk to me, feel free to e-mail; check out my 360. I was diagnosed with Malignant Melanoma in March 2006. I can not even begin to tell you my trials. In short, I am fair skinned, blue eyed. I do not know my family history, because I was adopted. I was told that it can be hereditary. I was also told, that tanning beds, sun exposure, and burning, during youth were all factors. NO form of ultraviolet radiation is better for you. All are potentially dangerous. Melanoma Awareness is something that is being worked on. Feel free to type in Melanoma, Malignant Melanoma, and skin cancer. You will undoubtabley find an array of literature. I have spent the last eight months researching. Tannning Beds/Salons are supposed to put warnings about repeated exposure. Much like cigarette companies put warning on their packs about lung cancer. No one seems to pay as much attention to skin cancer. I am stage III. I started my treatments, yesterday. Its going to be a long rough year. I wish I had protected myself years ago. I've had a wle/snb, lnd, ct, bone, mri, pet, and echo. I was recently ordered an ultrasound. Its a deadly disease. I can give you a web-site, that I frequent. Everyone there has advanced stages of Melanoma (ie: skin cancer) they will be more than willing to answer any and all of your ?'s...they will even get the answers to the ?'s for you. They are a wonderful bunch. They take this disease seriously...and its causes...they write letters to congress about tanning beds/ and most recently....tanning showers. Feel free to check it out, or ask me any further ?'s.... http:mpip.org
