There's a big difference between making a living off breeding dogs and making a reasonable profit off a litter. There will be unpredictable losses as in any business, but like any venture, you've got to be able to budget and plan properly. I don't see why there should be any harm in making a profit off a hobby that you probably dedicate more time to than necessary, because it is your passion. It's when breeding turns into a someone's main source of income that I start to see problems in terms of ethical practices.
