I have been chasing down hidden studs across my kennels for projects and such and I have actually really been enjoying the hunt. I was thinking about tracking them and putting them here so others can take advantage as well.

And today I learned that there can be hidden sale dogs too! I was going through Azawakhs and discovered a sale that was pretty old and wasn't showing under the sale page.

Wow, that's fascinating actually. I had assumed the sales at some point expired!

Certain sales do expire. I think the QuickLists do but I'm not sure. I do think that if a subbed account puts a dog up for sale without approval then drops to Basic, the sale remains valid forever.

I found a couple of Harrier studs that way. Unfortunately they died after having bred four or so starter bitches - they were really old. I got two litters and someone else I think got a couple. These had been FH'd even so the money went to the "Loving Family" (helped to put the kids through college). I'm not sure how this worked. Also I can't remember for sure but I think they may have got un-neutered in the process. I believe it happens if they are placed up for sale, then FH'd while still for sale and that flag sticks.

Yeah, the search is kind of compelling but time consuming - I checked the offspring of several Merit award dogs. Unfortunately no girls to be found.

It is seriously time-consuming. But I managed to necromance a pair of new studs today. Little River, I put them up for stud if you are interested.

Hopefully, they can hang on for a few days.

Wow! Those are oldies! Mine were only 6 to 8 hundred. Good luck.

Actually if y’all can help me find more studs or dogs for sell in the Appenzeller Sennenhund breed that would be great! I joined the breed because I noticed that the very last breeder was leaving and I took up all their stock and was able to find one really old stud left, who is about to die any day now. I’ve used him as much as I can, but I know it’s going to get tricky down the line and I would have to bring in some source dogs to keep up with the breed. I’ve been looking for more.. there are several kennels with dogs in them but they haven’t logged in ages sad :(

Virgoat- give me a couple of days and I'll see what I can do. I am enjoying the dig, so hopefully, something comes up that can help!

How do I find the "hidden" studs/sales? I just rejoined the game (left in 2013) and am slowly remembering how to do everything >_<

Check the Harrier Hound forum - some tips and suggestions there.

Be prepared to do some hunting.

I started working on a doc to keep track of hidden studs. It's in progress and I have only done a handful of breeds so far, but here's the link for everyone to check out:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1mUqlFhWacgcgibzfl45aEgjLvnz7iU2rQBiRAVKwcLM/edit?usp=sharing

It's coming along in fits and starts, so if I haven't done your breed, feel free to send me a message and I'd be happy to put that one up next.

This is not an all-encompassing list, usually I will dig 20-ish minutes per breed and hopefully get at least one stud. Usually one leads to more though.
