Umm... every single day!!!
Many people see animals as disposable, just like a couch that has gone out of style or lost it's newness. Price is often irrelevant. Purebreds, presumably purchased for $100's, make up a huge percentage of abandoned dogs. Pet store dogs cost $1000's and I'm sure many (if not MOST) of them end up re-homed, abandoned, or euthanized. Anyone who purchases a living creature out of impulse or fad is much, much, much more likely to abandon them, while puppies produced for impulsive buyers and fads are often higher priced than well-bred show/working quality puppies who have been planned for and reserved long before being bought.
