Why are real pure breed dogs so expensive? how hard can it be to get some dogs of the same breed to fuck?

Pic related, only local breader wants $2,500 for a 2 week old male pure bread german shepherd

>Why are real pure breed dogs so expensive?
because expensive is a relative term.

and this may be difficult to accept, but most businesses don't actually cater to poor people.
>>
>>2004148

If it's a really good breeder they feed the dogs pretty well/shots/take care of them. It's fairly expensive stuff.

Plus because pure breeds are mutated as fuck they have to do all the health tests.

Are the parents straight back?
>>
>selling a 2 week old puppy
what the fuck

and two reasons, one that doing all the nessecary health tests and vaccines and such is expensive as hell, or that they know morons will pay through the ass for a memedog

Why byb pure dogs are expensive? Because people will pay for it so they push their limits.

Why decent breeders charge so much? Because it costs a lot to properly breed.
Example

The breeder you speak of is doing it purely for the cash, and is simply making 2.5 G from you, minus maybe a hundred tops for feeding the mother more food so she can feed her puppies. Basically you are getting anally raped. It's illegal in every US state to sell puppies before they are 8 weeks old
>>
>>2004148
1) supply and demand

2) pretty sure selling a pup before 8 weeks is illegal

I'm sorry, but I can't take that link seriously. The lady in charge of that page is clearly over exaggerating everything. Hence her language on the page.

She's a breeder for 24 years and she's losing money? So why is she doing it?
>>
>>2004246

And her explanation for dog genetics is stupid.
>>
>>2004246
>losing money
>why is she doing it?

most people who breed dogs properly are making very little money or are just breaking even. some even lose money. they do it out of love for the breed
>>
>>2004280

I purposely force my dogs to breed and possibly lose puppies and mothers to death for the "love of the breed".

In what world does that make sense?

I never said it makes sense or that I agree with it, just that it's typically the response you'd get. it's also those people that encourage unneeded cropping and docking to preserve the breed's "historical value", so that shows how big of morons they are

>>2004315
That dog is in AKC show stack and you know it, and while it might have a slope when standing square, it wouldn't be anywhere near that pronounced.

Beyond the enormously skewed stance, I can't see much wrong with that dog, and you can better tell gait/soundness issues through movement, which is why the trot around the show ring is so important -- it shows up weak hocks or an overshort or overlong stride.

The GSD does have some issues, granted, but the slope isn't necessarily one of them. It was bred in for a functional reason, originally, as long as the dog is not overangulated then it should not affect his performance, so fuck off.

>but the slope isn't necessarily one of them

The slope causes hip dysplasia...obviously.

>functional reason

No, no it wasn't.
>>
>>2004386
>The slope causes hip dysplasia...obviously.
there is no correlation between the two whatsoever. idiots just like to think there is because they want to feel intelligent and go against anything abnormal.

Hush fake bugguy.
