Just curious if I'm out of line on my thinking. Last summer my brother had called me about getting a possible puppy. My golden is 12 yrs old and I know his heart was in the right place but this is what he told me. A friend of a friend had 11 puppies and wasn't sure if he could find homes for all of them. The only thing he could tell me about the puppies was.... One of the parents he paid $5000 for and the other $2500. I declined because I want my future puppy to be from a reputable breeder and I just can't take time away from my old guy even though I dread knowing sometime in the future I will be dogless for a period of time. Well they evidently have had another litter ( the 2nd in less then a year) and my brothe a nd sister in law went out to see the puppies and evidently are going to get a puppy ( I believe for free). They haven't looked for a puppy from any other breeder. Personally I think they are focused on how much this guy has supposedly payed for the 2 dogs he is breeding. It all seems a little suspicous to me and unfortunately they won't take my advice about clearances etc. Am I off base in my thinking?
