I got my dog from the pound, and I think that's the best thing to do - I don't care HOW much the breeder 'cares', if there are hundreds of thousands of dogs that are homeless, why bring more into the world?

you really dont care for "quality" you care for QUANTITY. (gawd, please learn to use spell check).
You see what is the popular look for "bully pits" and you adjust your breeding for that. Why? because it gives you money.
Real and GREAT breeders don't bother changing the look of their breeder UNLESS they see it will improve the breed health wise.
You, my friend, are NOT a great breeder.
THIS is a great breeder! http://www.brittonfarmsdobermans.com/index.html

I doubt he health tests, which is unfortunate given the serious health issues bullies can have. Charging a lot of money for a dog means nothing except that someone out there is willing to pay it. Most reputable breeders barely break even on their litters, it isnt about the money.

Your right. His so called "health tests" are likely from some cheap vet that takes the dog for 5 mins and comes back to say "dog is perfect. No flaws!"

I hardly buy from breeders.
Out of all my dogs, only 1 of them was bought from a breeder. All my dogs have been rescues.
My pug, I found her on the street. Starving, itching like crazy. Nearly bald from all her itching.
My golden/lab mix. She was tossed into a river INSIDE a bag with the rest of her brothers/sisters. I found loving homes for all of her brothers/sisters AND I got them fixed before giving them to their homes.
My hound mixes. Found on our hunting property. Again starving/were clearly abused.
The rest were found in shelters.

I am in full support of rescuing before buying. My doberman is likely to be the only dog I would ever buy from a breeder. Breeders who can prove they are improving the breed are far and few. And my doberman(as some of you may have already read) is proof that his breeder is improving the breed.

Idk know if it cheap or not
So I'll let u take the call
The last two time I was in
Spend 575 in a hour
Another 100 for 15 minute
If that what u call cheap them I'm cheap
Think what kind of money I'll make
If I've spend 14,000 just to breed
Bully or English usually give u a litter of 2-8
All short nose dog have breathing problem
All small dog have a hard time keeping it temp
Bottom line all breed have there problem
It get more extreme when u keep cross the same line over n over
