Roperchick, you're right, some dogs do have the propensity for being overweight. My Dalmatian was 62lbs and very...husky. She was high energy (as most/all Dalmatians are), but we didn't feed her a good food (Pedigree...we didn't know any better). She should have been 40lbs, tops.
But, like PurpleMonkeyWrench said, you don't breed a dog like that (that is/stays fat no matter what you do). You're setting your puppies up for lives of obesity, joint problems, and breathing problems (to name a few), which is NOT what a responsible breeder does. However, if you're advertising your stud on Craigslist, that probably doesn't make you a responsible breeder, so...
