    I should e-mail him pretending I'm interested and ask about the bloodlines and how he came to making the "purebred" minature dals.

    I don't see what an email is going to do at all.

    Yup it's sad, but we've all seen the designer dog breeds before. I don't see why we need a new thread on this topic every other week.

    What I don't understand about the "breeder" is how he's justifying his prices
    Mini's - Males $950 Femles $1500 "toys" Males - $1500 females $2500!
    But he also states that all pups need to be spayed/neutered and can't be bred - so why the high price for a female?

    Here's my theory - he bred down dals until they were significantly smaller and then they got mixed with smaller fine boned dogs - IGH, JRT, CHI, etc. and unfortunately, I bet he only kept the ones that came out white with black/blackish spots and called them mini dals.

    I'm not Believing it!!!

    Reminds me a lot of the scam running in the Beagle business. We (my family) have had Beagles forever. About 5-6 years ago, I began seeing Newspaper, Magazine and Internet Ads for "Pocket Beagles". Apparently there was a movie which featured a "small" Beagle and was characterized as a "Pocket". Suddenly, there were all these Pocket Beagles available from all these so-called reputable breeders. ALL REALLY EXPENSIVE TOO!!!

    Bottom line, there are no "Pocket Beagles" in existence today, and haven't been since Queen Elizabeth days in merry ol' England. The breed died out due to a loss in popularity and favoritism for a larger, faster hound. If you really look at a lot of these advertised pockets. you can see an uncharacteristic resemblance to a Chiauhua. Some people who buy them even complain of their defensive disposition complete with body shakes and all - sound familiar?

    I think I see Chiuahua in these dogs too!!!
