The way I see it, flippers are the people who take money dogs, great Danes, small and fluffy things, purebreds, either for free or a few dollars, and resell them for hundreds of dollars.While I do pick and choose which ones I take, that isn't how I go about it. There have been plenty of dogs I could have held out for top dollar for, but that isn't my angle.
And I disagree about there being little money in animals. The horse market may be in the crapper but I owned a pet store and made a killing in animals. I sold exotics and interesting dog/cat supplies, and my own dogs were my best models. Across the way from me was a man that dealt in only high end dog accessories. You want to drop a few hundred bucks on a wedding dress for a dog, you went to him. You needed a life jacket or a backpack for your dog, you came to me. I sold thousand dollar birds, bred my own chinchillas and sugar gliders to avoid poor quality/shipping stress, and I could help people find a reputable breeder for about any type of dog their little heart desired. There's tons of money in animals if you know where to look.
