Myths and Facts about Spaying and Neutering Myth: My pet is so special, I want a puppy from her. Fact: A dog or cat may be a great pet, but that doesn’t mean her offspring will be a carbon copy. Professional animal breeders who follow generations of bloodlines can’t guarantee they will get just what they want out of a particular litter. A pet owner’s chances are even slimmer. In fact, an entire litter of puppies or kittens might receive all of mom or dad’s worst characteristics.
