    Default new breed of breeder is raking it in!

    Im searching for another crate for camping. On gumtree and trading post.

    How sad, that BYB is flourishing. I saw a litter of siberian huskies (picture) being sold as, german sheperds, pure bred. Really? you're so interested in the breed, you cant even spell it? Or download a photo of actual GSD pups to post?

    the Oodle effect is everywhere. I saw 3 'specially bred' cross bred pups, rotties cross bred with kelpie (can you imagine?) a kelpie skeleton trying to hold up a rottie? A kelpie's drive with a rottie gaurding.


    And a pure bred french mastiff, being sold cheap at 4 months, a snip at $900, going cheap because he cant walk properly!, he hops like a bunny instead, but he's very adorable and just needs a forever home. (and a few grand in the bank for the operations that are going to be required, and still $900, that's a thousand dollars for a very sick pup, that is going to cost thousands to make its life reasonable quality.

    and GSD pups, with crooked feet and undershot jaws, for $1800 each!

    Bloody hell, its awful Such money grabbing sods.

    Got a crate for $50, so worth the heart ache of my own distraction of looking at dogs for rehome.

    I still cant work out why when I was a kid, mixed breed dogs were given away and now everyone sells them. What changed?

    I don't go near gum tree dog ads - they just make me angry.

    My sister got a bit of a shock when I told her that mutts cost money (for food, desex and vax)... and that's the ones from the rescues.

    Yes it's been going on for a very long time and will continue until these lowlife BYBs are stopped...I won't hold my breath.

    Yup, pretty horrific realy, when you look at how things have progressed to this stage in a world that is so much more concerned with welfare than ever before.

    I reckon we are watching the decline of a species in its natural environment.( alongside man) Again.

    But I think to get answers to change that, you DO have to see the whole picture. Not just label a few ignorant peeps as the cause, but to look at it from a whole species perspective, and whats happening to their environment as a whole- the communities they live and breed in.

    What messages are we sending regarding the keeping of dogs?
    What purpose do dogs have in the communities and are we doing enough to see they retain any purpose?
    Do we do enough to encourage purpose in their keeping?

    Seems to me that any purpose to them is being lost and so their value is lost, except purely profit and status as an aquisition.

    While most people are reasonably responsible enough to get the desex message or at least confine their dogs, thats also opened up a market that used to be reserved for pedigree dogs or at least dogs that were bred for a specific purpose.

    Now its just easy money for people who haven't the brains to understand there was once a purpose to it all. And should be.

    Recently someone brought a puppy into work that they had JUST purchased (hours before) it was a $1200 "pug." I looked at him, oooh'd at him (because he is ADORABLE) and mentioned that he looks like a Pug/Cavalier cross. The owner said "yeah, I dunno, he's a pug, might have something else in him yeah, I didn't see photo's of the dad"

    My jaw dropped. YOU JUST PAID $1200 FOR AN UNKNOWN MIXED BREED PUPPY AND YOU DIDN'T SEE BOTH PARENTS AND DON'T REALLY CARE?????!!!????

    I'm sorry, but that's just nuts.

    the BYB money makers will continue to do as they are doing because the public are stupid. Fact.
