How much should I be charged as a stud fee for a toy pomeranian? He is pure black, but he’s unregistered. He’s obviously purebred. How much is too much, and how much is too little, since that could tell you that it might not actually be purebred?
This is just a question. Please spare me the anti-breeding rants.
He’s not worth ANY stud fee! If the stud is not registered, then the pups can not be registered and that makes them worth considerably less money…in fact it makes them worth no more than if the stud were a "sneaky neighbor dog" and the pups were mutts. Also, if he is not registered and has no papers (and no health screenings) you have no way of knowing if he is carrying some horrific genetic disease. Chances are pretty good he isn’t, but you can’t be sure of that and if he is and one or more of the puppies inherit that disease then they are worse than worthless…no one in their right mind is going to buy a sickly puppy that will require lots of expensive vet bills. If I am going to pay a breeder good money for a puppy then I fully expect to get a dog I can register and a dog that has some sort of health guarantee. Without registration papers for BOTH parents you can’t even guarantee me that the puppies are purebred let alone that they will be healthy.
If you are insistent on breeding your dog, find another stud. One with papers at the very least. Preferably one with titles and health clearances as well. Stud fees are based not only on what one could sell a puppy for but also on the quality of the bloodline. A stud with titles and health clearances will be worth more than one that just has registration papers. A stud with no registration papers at all isn’t worth your time.Tags: pomeranian
