Maybe, it's an inside dog, and it's farts are peeling the paint off the walls.
If you keep your dogs outside, or have your interior walls painted with Sherwin Williams fart resistant paint, that dog could be just what you are looking for. At a bargain price to boot.

Because the dog is not good enough in FT does not mean the dog is a complete wash out. Only at the game you want to play is the dog not suitable. But probably a good dog.
And there are always extenuating circumstances or reasons a person has to sell their dog. That is personal.
I don't think the term washout applies and I think Copter dog is fishing for ....!! IMO

"A Good Dog is a Good Dog"
A dog that sells for 6 figures is definitely not a washout.
What about 5 figures? If I sell a dog for $20k, is it a washout? Would it make a difference if the dog was 4 versus, say 1.5 years old?
Does it really make a difference whether I advertise the dog or not? I get Copterdoc's point that many good dogs don't sell via ads, but if I have a dog and want to get the best possible price, shouldn't I get an ad? Does that really reflect on the dog?
Competition does not build character - It reveals it.
