I know some people with a sheep farm in NZ and they do the same. They have Lurcher mixes and they are amazing farm dogs and they breed them because they need to know for a fact their next dogs will be able to perform the duties the last ones did because that is what they do for a living. That being said they can`t have like 7-10 dogs to feed so they will generally give away the rest or sell them at a low price.
I mean, there was someone here in on Vancouver Island (Canada) who was selling `Lurchers` but they were just whippet standard poodle mixes, which is most definitely a backyard breeder. I would never get a Lurcher over here, they don`t really exist in North America really. At least being bred for farm dogs.
Is this guy letting them go for a fair price? My biggest concern would be that beacuse they are bred for working dogs, they will be pretty high energy (needing tons of mental stimulation and an outlet like agility or Triebball)
