    If people are willing to pay that much, that must be proof enough. I know Kurupts owner personally. Yea, its not the style of dogs people like on here, but if thats the look you are going for, thats the best you can get. and "that bow wow camp" is on of the first american bully breeders out... thats Dave Wilsons partners, they started RE and the elite edge. You say its stupid to buy a dog for that much. I say it's worth it. Its an opinion and neither of us will never be "right" on the subject...

    I dont put my prices high, in fact i think the most i got out of a pup was 350 and that was with its ears cropped the cheapest out of that litter was like 150 and they are winning blue ribbons in ADBA shows. Cheapest ambully i got was free most expensive APBT we have cost us about 1300 after shipping and everything.

    Like I sd people who are charging ridiculous prices are the ones who make BYB's. Everyone sees money signs and want to do what theyre doing. Its stupid and I hope people realize this, and figure out a way to help stop all the BYB's. Why do people sell them for that much? well because they are greedy, non-caring, idiots. PERIOD!

    I totally agree Bluestark, the prices are only that high for one reason, people are greedy assholes and care nothing about their dogs, its all about dollar signs, if I paid that much for a dog, the thing better shit out gold :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    It is a matter of opinion, but even if it was my dream dog, I wouldn't pay that much for a dog. I would rather not even pay $1000 for a dog, so, no way I'd pay $10,000. lol.

    That has nothing to do with it at all! I have worked since i was 12 years old. Making money isnt the issue. If i feel my dogs are worth a certain amount, and people buy them for a certain amount, I do not see any issue.

    Wow, this thread is ANTIQUE! :lol: :rolleyes:

    Anyhow whatever I may have said 1.5 years ago ...

    I'm sure there are people fetching in the thousands for dogs that have never should have been bred to begin with; then on the other hand there are awesome breeders I know of charging from zero to in the 100's.

    Price is not the moral line.

    If someone has a fantastic and responsible breeding program then they can charge whatever they want IMO. If someone is really in that fraction of a percentage of RESPONSIBLE breeders then more power to them.

    As far as people starving and whatnot, then why stop here, let's go after anyone who buys a sailboat or a Lexus :rolleyes:

    Ok, where is the Lexus forum. HAHA, sailboats suck! I am just stating why does someone have to charge this ridiculous price on a friggin DOG! That more than likely isn't going to prove anything, other than breeding.

    Not more than likely, it WON'T prove anything other than breeding, these people don't do anything with their dogs, but, even if they did, say that dog had 50 titles, in the end, it is still a dog, not worth it. Ya know?

    i mean yah! Now that Dozer is 2 1/2 and proved himself to ME. I can sit here and say he is worth 5000! But again that is to ME!
    I didnt pay but 250 for him. So therefore that guy thought he wasnt worth but that. I just dont get it, let people decide how much their dog is worth, not by already putting the price tag on the damn puppy!

    Sorry, I'm from the USA and I'm a red blooded Capitalist! :lol: Supply and demand baby! :D

    If you are hungry and homeless, get a job and work hard! If you you can't afford the dog that you wold like, work harder! If this wasn't the land of opportunity, then people wouldn't be sneaking in to have a chance to work here.

    Boo hoo hoo! It's not fair that I can't afford the very best dog. I can't afford the biggest house, but someone can. That's why I work hard (and smart), so someday I can.

    OK, I'll put away my soap box:rolleyes::lol:;)

    Seriously, If you look around and have a good eye and an understanding of what makes for good conformation, you can probably get a very good dog at a reasonable price. We have a bum that lives in the park under a bridge, that has a Pit to die for! The thing looks like a Lions Gate dog! I'm sure he didn't pay $500+ for it.

    It's hard to get (at least around here) any pure bread of OK quality for less than $1000 nowadays. I have always believed that the price of the dog always sooo much less than all the expenses you pay having a dog. I just added up food, shoots, id chip, indoor & outdoor kennels, spay, extra accessories... The first year came to around $1500. Just sit down and add it up, it's shocking! :eek::lol:

    Yeah, but I don't mind paying for the cost to take care of the dog. I do mind paying an arm and a leg for something I can get a better example of or at least an equal dog for free or for less money. lol.

    I'm all for people charging what they want for dogs; and for people paying it if they want.

    It tells me NOTHING about the dogs (except some sort of inverse relationship in this case) and a whole LOT about the people breeding, selling and buying the dogs -- and THAT is the value in MY book!

    I think it's pretty much required in the "bully" culture to be charging what are considered high prices because you don't have real "bullies" if you don't...it's all part of the cachet of owning the dogs.

    Carla,
    I'm sorry you know much more than me.
    PHPITS:
    WATCH IT! LOL
    Oh and Carla, that is not the "required" in the bully world. My dogs are prime examples. I have never payed that much for a friggin dog, and my "paperwork" that is costing people so much compares, if not EXCEEDs some of these other bullys
     
  19. I'm like two months late on this but I don't agree on paying 1000+ for a dog just because they can produce u some "good" puppies.I'm on my iPod so I can't ay everything I want to say ...
