Kings used to, and maybe still are, shown in ARBA shows, (american rare breed association).
The started as Shilohs, decided to take a different direction and made them into "kings"..
As I previously posted, I won't talk you out of one.
I agree 3500 is quite an excessive price in my opinion, I guess it comes with owning "a rare breed" or "designer breed" (which means mixed). I honestly don't get why someone would pay 3500 for a puppy unless it's just to say "my dog cost 3500 and it's a KING"
and I don't know why anyone would pay for a 'designer breed' either..There are tons of them in shelters.
I would like to know the oldest age of one of these Kings? Bet their life span is alot shorter than gsd, and more in line with a pyr/st bernard..
I also agree (don't recall who said it),,a coated dog is going to look ALOT bigger than they really are, and alot of that coat is adding to weight..
To each his own on the size thing, just because parents weigh xxx doesn't mean a puppy produced will follow suit..My gsd Kodi, was the product of standard parents, yet, he topped out at 32" at the shoulders and 125lbs..(the mutant
So what would happen if you paid 3500 for a puppy, and that puppy didn't top 100?
Also I see in their contract,,all dogs are sold on spay/neuter contract which I think is a good thing
