A bloke whose dog got another dog pregnant is refusing to pay veterinary bills or cough up cash for puppy support and expenses.
Taking to the universally-used forum Reddit, an anonymous man asked if he was wrong for not being willing to contribute cash to the veterinary bills of his dog's surprise litter.
His post received thousands of comments in response and tens of thousands of upvotes, marking it as one of most popular threads for user u/aitapuppy_power.

They explained their life on the family farm and how they often used livestock guard dogs to ward off predators, but it appears one of the unneutered dogs is responsible for a new puppy.
Explaining on the forum, the user wrote: "I have two, they are very well trained and socialised, but I don't allow dogs I don't know on the farm unless I'm there the entire time."
He added that one dog is an unneutered male due to "reasons relating to the community" while the other is a spayed female.
While away on a work trip, the bloke says his girlfriend invited a friend named Taylor to stay with her on the farm, who asked if there was room for her to bring her dog.
After the bloke said no since he would not be home to monitor the dogs, his girlfriend "told her she could bring her."

The bloke wrote: "She arrives, she has her dog. In heat. I offered to pay for her dog to go to the local kennel since I'd be gone, my GF and Taylor said I was controlling. I told them I just didn't want to leave room for issues."
u/aitapuppy_power left before the issue with his girlfriend could be resolved, and just weeks after returning home he says that Taylor's dog "had puppies," Daily Express reported.
The bloke concluded: "She's railing about me to my GF about not having my dog neutered. I refuse to pay. She and my GF can cover the expenses since they went behind my back. Am I in the wrong here?"
The user received hundreds of comments in support, with one writing: "It takes a special kind of stupid to let a dog in heat run around unsupervised, and you tried to keep it from happening."
