That's actually nonsense! For ethical, responsible breeders, it is rare that they even break even on a litter, let alone make a profit. When we were breeding, we gave away as many pups as we sold - to friends within the breed who we knew would show and work them and provide wonderful homes. A jealous neighbour once reported us to the Inland Revenue about the money we were making from breeding. Once we provided them with all the details of our outgoings (as well as our income) - we recieved a rather nice rebate as our outgoings on dog breeding were much much more than our income.
