my dog sells for 400-ish pay that? never in a million years!

only got him cos the 'breeder' couldnt sell him before his holiday so gave him so another breeder to find a home!!

his parents were kc reg & they breed kc litters & 'wee-chons'...........i asked if it was a accident...she said no!

orginally he was 300 but the person who put a deposit down never came back so i gave her 50 just as a show of good faith really for him as she had been looking after him for a week!

ptthhhhfffff
how do we stop the stupid people paying for these things and so letting the breeders breed them??
They are fantastic, lovely and individual crosses - but they are MUTTS
(and not pedigrees as I have heard someone proudly say about their 'poo dog)

The trouble is this is what he wanted, he ended up travelling to Manchester especially for it because he couldn't find one locally.....absolutely mad!!

I agree Maladay it is even worse that someone with full knowledge of what it is ,is prepared to pay out silly money for a fancy named Crossbreed. If people like these can't be convinced then how can we expect the ones who don't have the knowledge not to buy them.

That's a very good point, Eunice, and unfortunately, I have no idea what the solution is apart from trying to stop the deliberate breeding of crosses altogether, however, this is very difficult as there will probably always be fools who will pay a ridiculous amount of money for a fancy named crossbreed and you will always get the idiots that breed them.

I agree with this. A dog is a dog, it doesn't matter whether it's a crossbreed or a pedigree. It makes me sad these designer dogs. I think some people get them just because they see Paris Hilton or Jessica Simpson with one in a handbagin one of those terrible magazines.

I would never buy a dog from a breeder - I'll awlays go to Dog's Trust. But that's jsut my preference

Was having a peek at a labradoodle forum, 23people paid between 1200-1399, and 5 people paid over 1400, for their dogs. And all these dogs look so different. When will people learn.

yup all the best dogs come from dogs trust
I justify paying so much money for any dog - 70 to save a life - I can be smug and save money
