    me neither. "a good friend of the wife", I can see this one ending badly. Obviously doesn't meet the criteria for responsible breeder either.

    1. Conscientiously attempt to match the demand of animals with the supply - in this way they proactively avoid creating an oversupply of animals. Breeding too many animals would mean that some of them may be euthanased or end up at a shelter as an unwanted animal and responsible breeders try to avoid this as they have the animals welfare at heart.
    Ie how did the puppy get to be 7 weeks old before it was spoken for?

    I Found the Registered Breeder above who has a female Blue selling for only $1000?

    Why would a pup be 3 times the price??

    Good marketing... ie people think blues are special in the same way as labradoodles used to be special...

    Of course only a special person would fall for that, right?

    hmmmm. confuses the hell out of me. like with cockers. the solids with a big white chest or on the head are quite pretty, but they are miss marked and would not be good for the show ring nor for breeding as it isnt the breed standard for a cocker... so would you pay top dollar siimply because its pretty with those colours??? i would hope not!

    Blue is a dilute of Black, although blue breeders will try to tell you otherwise... sadly they mostly breed blue to blue to blue to blue... their gene pool is therefore limited... they have so many health issues it's sad.. You will very rarely see one in the show ring, this is mostly because they do not conform to the breed standard (although I have seen the odd very nice one) I was feeling sorry for the purchaser at first... until I read that she intended to breed her anyway... she's now been returned to the breeder who will most likely use her for breeding... it seems no one has the interest of this poor puppy at heart... I hope she finds a great home... and doesnt end up living a life of a puppy mill breeding bitch... and no I'm not against breeding... but buying a pup for breeding without knowing anything about the breed or even knowing the pup is sick, or having the relevent paperwork is not right...

    blues staffords are acceptable in the breed......

    "Red, fawn, white, black or blue, or any one of these colours with white. Any shade of brindle or any shade of brindle with white. Black and tan or liver colour highly undesirable.

    taken from the AKC breed standard..... though i do agree with kimba, as alot of blue breeder keep going with their blues instead of introducing other colours to stop diluting a diluted colour (if that makes sense).

    i have heard to many conflicting stories on blues so i avoided them totally....

    I agree, i did feel for the op until the breeding her comment. Yes ill admit i had this in my mind with sasha but after MUCH argument i was talked out of it and now understand the reasons why. after going into partnership with sashas breeder her breeder has hopes to breed her when she is two, in return for a male puppy for her. but this is all going to be the breeders choice and she will take responsibilities for vet costs etc and finding the stud for her. I must admit i really like the co ownership idea, puts alot of pressure off me!!!

    That is a huge amount of money to pay for something that may not confirm to breed standards. Its similar to the less common "silver" labradors which cost around four times as much as a normal pure lab just because of the colour! And they are not an accepted colour so cannot be shown.
