i wish i could find that link to the site, it really looked more like a breeding website than anything, but at the time i didn't say anything because i didn't want to be the instigator.  anyways, why did they tell her not to  breed on the other board?  (curiosity of if there was a health problem with her dogs or something).



the opening page says:

"Our Danes are raised in the home. We love our Danes. All our dogs are registered with American Kennel Club. 

We believe in the total package!"

it has litter information, applications, etc also on her page

yeah, 250 deposits to hold a dog.  i remember now when i first looked at that page i thought she was a breeder b/c it had the pedigree on there even then.

yeah that outrageous... my pups parents were both tested and registered, her father used to show, and they still only asked 900 for pups at the most.. but she was left till she was 9wks and she dropped the price to 500.

i can see paying 900+ for a show quality, with proven parents, testing, papers, etc etc etc (the WHOLE 9 yards because even then with puppies it's no guarantee) if i intend to show, but 900 for a pet with only papers + no health testing seems like a bit of a big leap of faith.

heaven sakes that is WAAAAYYYYYY too much! IMHO if you are going to be asking for that price range you'll prabably need champion lines with not just a pedigree but an excelent one, and quite a fiew testings, along with a health guarantee on the pupps.

my pup is AKC and she was only 500, this is just horrible to charge that much for a pup without any testing done on the parents. especially because i know theres a lot of people out there who will get taken advantage of because of it

liz that's ok about the links, if they wanna see the site it's on her profile.  AKC registered and tested dogs go for about 500-600 here.  SHOW quality, gorgeous dogs with championship bloodlines can go for about 900-1200 at most.

Max and Boog were about 800, but they've got champions in their pedigree bla bla bla...., they also both came with a 2 year health guarantee, their parents also had testing done.
Their breeder is now breeding European line danes and the cost of her stud was about 5,600. so doodanes can be verra expensive if youre getting serious.

HEY *my* dog is gorgeous and shes not show quality!!!! lol im jk  Grin Cheesy ive never seen one over 1200 myself, but maybe it depends on the area youre in and how hard they are to find there... i dont know, i just think its too much. even though i cant put a price on my baby now (uhhem over 2500.. lol, stupid sickness! just kidding shes priceless) but i wouldnt have bought her if she was that much, show quality or not, theres no health garuntee you can give at all if the parents havent been tested!

to me, there's a big different in spending $2500 on a random puppy, and spending it on your *bestest buddy* who got sick  Cheesy  what a good friend you are!
