How much is too much for a dog?


Recommended Posts

I have been looking into purebred American Pitbull puppies for an Xmas present to my wife and kids.

I found one I really like, he's selling for $4,500. I always usually adopt but I am pretty dead set on getting a purebred from a well known bloodline / parents.

I want to wait until Xmas but he's the last one left and I don't want to wait for a new litter that won't be able to pick up until spring.

Please make me feel better about paying several thousand dollars for a damn dog 🤣

I'm sure yall know but purebreds have a lot more health issues than mutts do. Not going to guilt you in to rescuing but why not search there 20200620_190636.thumb.jpg.7a798def169dcd5a33c7b1a9112c7be2.jpgfor a pure bred first?  My dog was like 250 bucks at the humane society and he's a fuging awesome mix.  Staffy Doberman husky

$100 adoption fee for my pit mix 

outside of basic shots she is in perfect health.    every mix I have ever had has had great health.  

everyone else in my family has expensive pure breed dogs.  All sorts of health issues.   They spend small fortunres on the their dogs healthcare. 

but my dog is dumb as a box rocks.  I guess that is the trade off.  Their dogs have been easier to train and are better behaved.

The health concerns with purebreds is a good point, I've heard that before and definitely don't want to go down that road.

That being said, I've had problems with my mutts as well at some point or another - but paying the bill for a $100 mutt hurts a lot less than paying a $1,000 bill for a $5,000 dog.


Perhaps I will stop by the local shelter, I just hate going there unless I'm dead set on leaving with a dog. If I go there and don't see exactly what I'm looking for I'm gonna feel like an asshole.

This is debatable. 

It depends on a breeder.  The female should only produce pups once a year tops.  The pup we got, the breeder only breeds her every two years.  We got lucky as family who was in line for 3 years, bailed in last minute when pup was delivered to them in Wisconsin.

    • So basically he was a real shithead back in his younger days. Seems like he's either out that behind him or gotten smart enough with it that he can at least avoid run-ins with the law.
    • You are getting too in the weeds. He has basic fundamental issues that shouldn't exist at this point. Yes my first step might be different at tackle vs guard. My pad level isn't.  My hip load isn't my punch isn't.  Like the guys on the podcast I don't like his stance. These are basics. 
    • This is his legal history:   As a player at Colorado, Bieniemy was arrested along with a teammate following a February 1988 bar fight.[12] He pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct and fighting in public, and was sentenced to community service.[12] He also received discipline from head coach Bill McCartney.[12] In 1989, Bieniemy was ticketed in Westminster, Colorado for driving a defective vehicle, and in Aurora, Colorado for speeding. In October 1990, Bieniemy's license was suspended for a year after another traffic violation. On March 21, 1991, Bieniemy was caught speeding and driving with suspended license on I-70 near Rifle, Colorado, going 92 mph in a 65 mph zone. On April 17, 1991, Bieniemy failed to appear in court on charges relating to the March 21 incident. A bench warrant was issued in Colorado for his arrest on April 23, 1991, two days after he was drafted in the 1991 NFL Draft.[13] On July 4, 1990, Bieniemy pleaded no contest to interfering with a firefighter who had been performing his duties to extinguish a fire in Bieniemy's mother's garage.[13] Bieniemy received an eight-month suspended sentence[14] and was suspended for one game.[15] Bieniemy was instructed to do 40 hours of community service and attend an eight-hour firefighting training session.[13] An assistant city attorney said Bieniemy failed to attend the firefighting training session as stipulated in the plea agreement, but Bieniemy asserted the session was optional.[13] On September 27, 1993, Bieniemy was arrested in Boulder, Colorado, for allegedly harassing a female parking attendant. According to the police report, while with his friends, Bieniemy put his hand on the attendant's neck, startling her. She told police he also made a comment about "a bunch of black males all at once being her worst nightmare,"[14] and that Bieniemy and his friends took off their pants and began urinating nearby. Bieniemy was also named in an outstanding warrant on a charge of driving with a suspended license. As a result of this incident, Bieniemy was banned from the University of Colorado Boulder campus for one year.[7][16] In April 2001, Bieniemy was arrested for driving under the influence and was docked a month's pay.[17]   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Bieniemy
