That completely blows my mind!
We bought Thor as a pet, for $1800. From titled, health tested parents, ears already cropped, our breeder did all the posting for us, and answered questions we had. We chose (with our breeder/mentors assistance) to show him, and finished him. We are now being mentored by his breeder and another breeder, and have become good friends with the local Doberman people due to their introductions.
All for less than these backyard bred, untitled, non-health tested, awful conformation parents, uncropped, and no breeder support. From people that breed solid, and sometimes unrecognizable colors. Blows my mind!!
