    People pay around $1500 to $2500 for a "blue english staffy" often with disasterous results - ie if they get a puppy at all, it's often very unhealthy with long term genetic problems.

    They also pay a lot of money - well over $300 for "designer pups" or pups from pet shops.

    People who buy from places other than a shelter or well researched (and I don't mean internet searches) breeder - don't know what they're doing, often fall in love with the dog and pay whatever.

    People who want a GSP but don't do their research and aren't prepared to wait their turn with a reputable responsible breeder - will by a GSP puppy without papers that seems like a bargain.

    There are some in the Trading post now for $500.

    Burkes Backyard has them starting at $650 and that fact sheet is probably well out of date, I would imagine around $1000 would be closer to the mark for a GSP with papers from a breeder who does well at dog shows or gun dog trials.

    Lollen I'd still contact the GSP club in your state. They would have the most idea on what to charge and may help with finding potential pet owners who just want a GSP because they know and like them and not because they want to show and breed.

    I think a GSP from a RRR breeder, would ask the same price as a Dally.
    $700 - $1500.

    A phonecall sometimes works better in this situation. You will need to make it really clear you rescued a neglected and already pregnant GSP or they will react badly...

    And some of them are a bit luddite ie not good with email. Still. Sad but true.

    Hi Lollen

    You can say everything you want with an email but you can't hear how the person is responding to what you say or when you've written too much and overwhelmed them or written something they've misunderstood.

    Given that you've got pups in a way that goes against everything they stand for ie health tested show quality best for the future of the breed dogs... it will be delicate and emails (and forum posts) are too easily misunderstood.

    Telling you who is looking for pups and what the best thing to do with yours - may also be something they don't want to do in writing, though it's likely they will want the best for these pups. There is also a small chance they will think they should all be PTS (in the best interests of the future of the breed).

    That's why I think a phone call would be better. You can go a bit slower and sort out any misunderstandings as they occur. Focus on what you want ie a happy home for each puppy and a way to go about this, ie appropriate pricing and what to ask/tell potential puppy owners. And I think the club may be more approachable if you ask about desexing bond.

    I do think it would aslo be helpful if you knew where Cleo came from - ie where the other people got her and her father from.

    I've recently read a rather long thread in another forum where a would be puppy buyer whinges about the breeders (not responding to her requests for info and help), who in turn whinge about would be buyers who make bad assumptions about what the breeders are looking for in a future home for their precious puppies.

    Ok that's a really good point... I'll see how I go.

    The only thing I know about Chester and Cleo's owners before the the prior, is that Chester was bought in Melbourne for $800, and they don't have any info on who had Cleo first. They got her when she was 3 months old... so I am assuming they didn't get her from the same people who bred her...

    Sorry Hyacinth but that is just awful, no breed club thinks like that! They will want them all desexed before rehoming but certainly not PTS.
