Question, I have nine solid white Great Pyrenees puppies born March, 9th by two registered all white parents used on my farm to guard Alpacas. Where is a good place to advertize them at a below market price, to sale them quickly? --No advertising, edited by mod--

not only is this WAY against the rules, I find it (personally) a bit offensive. Why not just give them away to anyone who will take one? Save you the expense of advertising, feeding, wormings, shots, vet trips, etc...you certainly don't have much love for your bred OR your dogs.
I agree, the White Dobes post IS an advertisement. He/she stated they were expecting pups, gave the expected date of arrival and then provided a link to the site to drum up interest in the pups (hence looking for potential buyers).
I have a site for my guys, that I have shared on the forum. I do NOT and will not have pups for sale. Sharing the link is to simply show off my "furkids".
When I did have a litter, they were all placed before I offered a link to the site. The link was requested by several members at the time, so they could see all the pics of the pups as they grew. I never used the forum to advertise or sell a pup.
Personally, I could care less if someone wants to try to sell their pups, cats, dogs, kittens or reptiles through the forum if that was permitted for one and all. I think they'd find it a "hard sell" to the posters though and a mighty waste of time and effort.
I would think the local paper or thrifty type paper. Alot of people will not want to pay the shipping cost of a non reg. pyr (being 200-250 for shipping) this will be probably around what you could get for your pups. Try selling them locally..Good luck
grrrrrrrrrr, I have no pups, WILL have no more pups, but the litter I DID have, each buyer felt that a fee of no less than $850 (the runt of the litter) - $1,000.00 was reasonable. All but 3 of the 10 had limited registrations with owners more than willing to sign spay/nuter contracts.
I gave no "discounts", did no "trading". I wanted to be sure I acknowledged their fantastic bloodlines, the quality of the pups themselves AND the value of the breed as well. I also wanted to be sure that the homes to which they were going would be able to provide for them as they deserved.
While my pups have over 100 CH in their 4 generation pedigree (and far more going back beyond that), they were NOT the offspring of CH, since I have never shown my pair. Nor were my pups livestock trained.
No, I didn't make a killing as I spent most of that on the litter and mom. The last pup placed was 16 weeks old. Athena (the one who lives in NH on a mim-horse farm) is much loved and as well placed as all the others. However, I was MORE than willing to keep her rather than place her in a less than perfect home.
Since you've stated your pups are offspring of Ch lines AND are livestock trained, I have to wonder at why you place such a low value on them AND on their breed?
Most folks do not know what they are getting into with this breed. They do NOT do enough research nor do they talk with experienced owners about the traits they will encounter with a Pyr.
Unless you live in an area where Pyrs are common and are routinely used as livestock guardians, where potential buyers KNOW what they're getting into, I fear you are setting these pups and their owners up for very unhappy experiences by trying to sell them off as quickly and cheaply as possible.
Just my opinion

i have to agree with pyrmom. your ad sounds like you are trying to just dump off those pups with no regard to where they will even be going. you shouldnt treat your pups like "bargain basement" items. it doesnt look to me like you should have any animals if this is the way you are going to deal with those babies.
So MANY Pyrs end up in rescue or worse :-( because people fall in love with those cute, cuddly, fur balls with the soulful eyes. Then, reality hits and they have a 16 week old 30-40 pound "puppy" on their hands that doesn't fully mature until he/she is 2! I did tons of research, spoke with experienced breeders and owners for MANY months, LONG before Angel came into our home and hearts.
Once she got over a slight case of seperation anxiety (yikes..), she was the perfect little lady. BEAU on the other hand would have tried a Saint's patience! And I am NO saint! I KNEW what I was in for.
I value my "furkids" more than any possession. We worked through it and I am thrilled with my babies. Even though poor Beau is a doggie day care drop out, expelled for peeing on the bags of chicken feed! Not everyone is willing to look at the loss of a love seat and say, "guess she thought it would attack and it's her way of protecting us!"
While not as big as some of the Mastif family, these are STILL big dogs and can do BIG damage if not appropriately homed and properly trained from the start.
Aw, common' Dusty, I'm REALLY trying to be on my best behavior after becoming rabid last week!

When you reply to a topic, it's then moved to the top of the list of threads..so if you *bump* one, you wanted it moved to the top so that someone in particular would see it, or to generate more interest. It doesn't take much for a thread to move to the second page here, and people may not even see it :)
