Tips to Help Find a Good Breeder!
Don't be fooled by people that tell you not to buy from a pet boutique or pet shop.
Individual breeders are not regulated by the health department like pet boutiques, pets shops, groomers, veterinarians & licensed dog breeders. You could be dealing with a mom & pop cover up for a puppy mill.
The # 1 selling tool for puppy mills today is to tell you not to buy from a pet shop!
BREEDERS ARE LIKE A USED CARS SALESMEN, " THEY NEVER HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT EACH OTHER "
I, find that many businesses, dog breeders, groomers, veterinarians, kennels, hair stylist, car repair, electricians, plumber, so forth and so on are very competitive. It would be very rare to hear one recommend or brag on their competition.
Their are a lot of great breeders out their and because we don't always have what our customers are looking for, we do our best to provide tips in helping you find what is important to you in your search for a new puppy without getting ripped off.
Although most breeders have good intentions of providing you with a healthy and happy pet, we want people to be aware of certain selling practices that may result in buying an unhealthy pet.
Our intentions are to educate and make you aware of the cautions you need to take before purchasing a new puppy.
1. For your protection, ask for a written guarantee, even if it is hand written, as long as it has both a buyer's and seller's signature. You could be protected from costly vet bills should your pet have health problems.
2. Have your existing pets up to date on all of their vaccines before you ever go out to purchase a new puppy. If you purchased a new pet that contracted a contagious disease you may risk paying an expensive vet bill, or you may lose your existing pets as well as your new puppy.
3. Beware of breeders that take cash only and prefer other meeting places than the place puppies are kept or raised.
If a breeder only accepts cash and wants to meet somewhere other than their home or business, chances are they are not providing a very clean environment to raise pets. In addition, if you incur expensive vet bills or lose your new pet due to health problems that your pet had at the time of purchase, you may be out of luck if you don't have the breeder's proper address
4. Beware of short (24, 48, and 72 hour) Health Guarantee. Purchasing a Pet with a short health guarantee could be the same as throwing money out the window.
In our opinion this does not allow you enough time to get your puppy properly checked by a vet. You would need to make a mad dash to the vet's office to have the puppy examined. You might be charged an emergency office visit for such short notice.
5. Take your new puppy to a licensed veterinarian and have a full health exam done on your new puppy within the time allowed on your written health guarantee.
6. Request a fecal test is given on your puppy regardless of who you purchased it from. Small puppies can become terminally ill in a very short time if they have parasites or a bad worm infestation. Most puppies appear perfectly healthy for the first few days. It is after the 5th day that they normally start to have health problems if their own immune system is not strong enough to keep them going. Don't assume they will get better as some puppies can be sick one day and gone the next especially if they are not eating and drinking.
7. Beware of web sites that do not have ID Verification for Dog Breeders or breeders that do not show license information.
Next Day Pets & Terrific Pets require all advertisers to validate their identity before placing ads. This deters scammers from posting fraudulent information and taking part in unethical business practices.
Puppy Mill Breeders, Counterfeit Teacup Breeders (Offer no size guarantee & their puppies can grow to be 3 or 4 times larger than a teacup, basically tell you want to hear to sell you a puppy) & Pet Scammers that take your money and never send you a dog love to post ads on web sites that do not require a security check or ID verification. Major Pet Scams run out of Africa, Lagos, Nigeria, Cameroon or London they take pictures from other web sites or breeders and use them to sell you a puppy that you will never see.
I also believe that it can sometimes be the buyers fault. I have people visit my location all the time and want me to tell them what they want to hear. I let them know point blank if you want an extremely tiny puppies be prepared to pay an extremely high price. But if you want cheap let me show you some of our lower priced adoption or toy pets that are not size guaranteed. There is a difference in a small dog and a tiny dog. You are going to get what you pay for.
Below is a list of advertised sites that puppy mills & rip off scammers are always found on.
PuppyFind, CraigsList, Ebay, Hoobly, etc...
Internet Complaints & Scams Uncovered on: LuxPup, MSPuppyConnetion, PoshFairyTail, OnceUponATeacup
They are professional photographers that know how to photo shop & shrink images to make them apear tiny. Many customers complain they did not receive the same puppy that was listed on their web site and it grew over 4 times the size they wanted, that's why they won't give you a written size gauarantee.
IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO ASK A BREEDER
Remember all it takes is 30 seconds to ask a breeder these important questions......
1. If the puppy I purchase from you has a genetic health problem,
congenital or hereditary health problem can I return the puppy?
2. If my puppy has a contagious disease or dies from a
contagious disease will you replace it?
3. If the answer is yes, ask how many days will you have to return the pet.
4. How many days do you allow for me to take the puppy I,
purchase from you to a vet and will that be at my expense
or do you pay for the office visit?
5. Your are assuring me the puppy you are selling me is a teacup,
what if it gets big and becomes a large toy?
6. What is the predicted weight of the puppy I am getting? Can I get that in writing?
Some breeders opinion of a teacup is and dog under 10 pounds, you need to know what the breeders version of what a true teacup is full grown as an adult.
6. Do you offer a written money back size guarantee?
7. How Long is your Health Guarantee?
You may be surprised by their answer.
