Default Buying abroad

I am sorry if this has already been brought up, but I really would like to get some opinions about buying chi´s in another country.
I already brought this up in the end of my last thread, but is hasn´t been looked at for a few days.

I have the opotunity to buy from france, germany and italy. I know of someone who bought their dog from holland, because it was cheaper and it was a healty puppy.
I can see what the major cons are, like not getting to se the puppy before I get it. Also I would like to know how payment happens in this situation. It could be so easy for sleasy people to take your money, and never send a dog.

Please help.

Hi there!
It all depends on what you're looking for really. Breeders around Europe import and export dogs all the time. it's not a big problem, but you have to know what you're looking for and how much you're prepared to pay. if you're looking for a potential show dog, than I can recommend a few breeders. Even if you're only looking for a pet quality, it's worth while to buy it from a reputable breeder. As for the prices. ..... it's kind of the same everywhere. Prices start at 1000Euro and up to.... well again it depends on the quality.
If you want to go to Italy....DON'T! not because they don't have good breeders, because they have in fact got one or 2 best breeders in the worlds (they really do produce champions and their names are known everywhere around the world), but because they'll never sell you a puppy. Their prices start at 2000Euro and they only sell to already established breeders/owners that they know personally. And they never ever respond to English mails....they usually just speak Italian .
Here are few of their kennels:

http://www.chihuahua.it/
I wish I could buy from them .
I'd suggest you go to Germany. Contact this breeder..... she sells her puppies all over Europe and quite a lot went to Denmark:

There's also a very good breeder/dog show judge that produces great quality dogs and sells all over Europe. Some of his puppies were recently sold to Finland:

All the best!

Also keep in mind that long-distance travelling is very tough on the little ones and especially for pups. I say this because I got my puppy from a different state and she was on the plane for 8.5 hours and then was sick for a few days (had severe diahrea etc.)

I would strongly advise you not to buy puppies off these sites. Go directly to a breeder that's already been established and recommended by a local Chihuahua club.
Good breeders don't have to advertise their puppies . They're mostly reserved well in advance......

I can tell you exactly how much they cost as I know the breeder and his girlfriend. They cost around 1000Euro (that would be a show quality pup), and if you're only looking for a pet quality I can ask. You can send me your e-mail privately if you want......
