|From the looks of it, she's having another 'going out of business' sale...makes me so sad for the dogs. In addition to the link you posted, there's also an ad running for 'reduced price' puppies sired by Ghost. Why do I feel like this conversation has been had before? :(|

|Hey, at least it's a change of marketing strategy.|
Now they use Dean's name instead of the pedigrees/titles of sire/dam, grandsire/granddam etc. lol
It's a good thing Dean has thick skin and is used to the multiple ploys to use his name to further ones own pocket.
He's not the only one to fall victim to this type of marketing, Bernard Flinks is another one that gets used plenty for advertising too.

|Personally I think Ghost is a lovely looking dog and fair enough, the stud fee is $500. But $3000 for a dog who is untitled? One who hasn't done any tracking yet? Doesn't even have his BH yet? Is that a bit steep?|
Aside from that (I've no knowledge of these people), how do you know they're going out of busines? Does Dean have anything to do with these dogs generally? own them? Work them?
If not then why on earth would he allow anyone to use his name to sell dogs.
Maybe I'm being a bit cynical here, but something just doesn't add up for me.

|Hedi, this is yet another case of someone with no good reputation of their own among the working line fanciers figuring they could buy a couple of well-bred young dogs from a working line 'celebrity', toss 'em together at maturity when the female was in season, whelp a litter of pups and have them all sold for big cash before the pups were 12 weeks of age, making a tidy sum on the enterprise. It's not working out that way, the pups are now 16 weeks old and counting, so they're eating a whole lot more and require a whole lot more work. This person's dogs now advertising that "most" of her dogs for sale, and this isn't the first 'clearance sale' this person's had here...and unfortunately, it will probably happen again, too.|
