I know its hard to tell by pictures, but does this dog look like a purebred lab?
That breeder is full of ****. Unless all lines are pure, no resulting pup can be called purebred. It's a mutt, plain and simple, no matter how far back the dilution occurred. They have no right calling them purebred or asking that kind of money for the pups.I have learned some new information and AH HA! I was right!
The "breeder" told the people who bought this dog that he is a pruebred lab, and they also told them the dam's grandfather was half german shepherd, but that because the GSD was "so far back" it doesn't count anymore and thus when they bred their dam who is an 8th GSD, they got a litter of purebred labs. Um no ... the pup in the pictures at the start of this thread is a 16th GSD. Unless I did the math wrong. So yup, that "purebred" pup is part GSD.
