The problem is education Blue. BYB's and millers do not give a rats ass what they say in order to make a sale. Hence they tell the public the Lab is WHITE or this or that. Yes it's perceived because it's not understood. Perception of anything is only due to the way we think and the education we have on any given topic or "thing". When clients e mail me for information and ask about "white" Labs, I assure you the first thing they get from me is an education regardless of their adopting a puppy. The more we educate, the less perception there will be because facts will be known.
Another example with respect to the Labrador is the eye color. Specifically on yellow Labs when you see a "pink" nose and very light eyes the BYB's and millers will use this as "rare" and make bucks. Sadly what people dont know is that happens due to the chocolate recessive gene. A yellow Labrador carrying chocolate can have what's called NBP, no black pigment and will have a light eye. Has nothing to do with being rare and it's far from standard.
I did a few calls to Siberian Husky breeders before I decided to rescue.
I guess my turn off was, we have been breeding for over 15 years and we do all vet shots and worming.
There is only one pup left and someone is looking at them. Please make a down payment ASAP with overnight mail to make sure you reserve the pup.
If you want micro-chipped please add $50.00 for this cost.
If you don't have the time to run the dogs that doesn't matter. They don't need as much exercise that people say.
I think the biggest problem I had was that they didn't care about asking me questions. What type of home I have. How many pets I have or anything like caring about the home this pup would get.
To me this was wrong.
I know I could never be a breeder because I would have to move in where the pups went.
I watched this dog on the Internet that I called about starting out at 1500.00 was marked down each month. I would love to share the name of byb of this poor dog. It was in the state of OK and I wanted to drive down to see this dog at first. I soon changed my mind after the second phone call.
I would NEVER buy a dog over the net. You need to visit the breeders home. You need to meet the sire and dam in its home. You need to know that this dog is not over breed. I could go on and on but it's time to brush my kids!
