No, it is not profitable.
I heard you should sell puppy food?
I would try to sell it if you sell puppy food; but you can’t. The people you are asking for dog food make money that way. I know. I sold a lot of dog food. Why? I sold it to a friend who is a very good dog owner. I’m afraid my friend does not want it; although one shouldn’t put puppies up for sale.

When people come to sell dog food, do they come down from America to watch your dogs fight?

Isn’t it true that you go to a lot of trouble to breed your dogs?
