Default Buying Puppies

Hi Chi-lovers,

Does anyone out there have or know of anyone who has purchased a puppy from the Internet? I am in the process of buying two puppies from this breeder, and have run across a couple of people that have been burnt by this kennel. One lady was taken for $600.00, and told me, he doesn't even reg AKC his puppies, that I will never receive papers. I have put $400.00 in deposits, on my pups.

Have you checked with the Better Business Bureau in the area? I hope you have not been taken for a ride!

I have read this before, and have since been contacted by the breeder and he has sent me the info I requested....Soooo Geuss I'll just have to wait and see if he follows through, the letter you found is from a disgrundled person, that wanted the dog shipped out of the country and he refused to do that... I dont want to smear anyones name unless It is necessary, I will keep post on this subject until I recieve my puppies , thier papers, etc... so check back in two months to see how this turns out.

I hope everything turns out okay. I really think people should use extreme caution when buying over the internet. There are a lot of unscrupulous people out there who will take your money and run. Also it is important to see the pups in person as well as the breeder and parents of the pups before putting any money down. Does the breeder give a health warranty on the puppies?

Yes, says he gaurentees his pups for 1 year against genectic defects. He also sent me pedigrees, however they were made at staysit.com. Anyone out there use this site, I'm geussing it was because he dont have a scanner....and so this site offers a form you can fill out and send through email. Its really pretty cool....check it out... Hes suppose to send me hard copys through the mail. Thanks for your support. CHiwaluv

You are welcome. Sounds like you have a good breeder there. I can't wait to see some pix of your baby.

Oh, I hope he followz thru for you! Please keep us posted-really-please do! I will literally be saying a prayer for you that everything goes smoothly. Do you have proof that these other people have been burnt by this breeder? You know the papers don't take that long to get! Has he even registered them to him yet? If so, ask if he can give you your papers so you can register them now-it wouldn't hurt to do this! How old are the pups now? Have you seen the puppies parents yet & have you asked to see their registry papers? If not, please do!!!! Ask if he has any references for you to go by. Ask him also for the parents Registry Numbers & then email the registry they are registered through to see if he is in good standing or if they are actually are registered themselves. Ask if they are AKC, APRI or CKC!!! Well, I don't know what else to say to you! Well I guess I have one more important thing-it really is important to have your pups registered becasue if they were ever lost or stolen then it would be easier to get them back-having their papers would prove they are yours-you never know if someone moght steal them if they were to get loose & you have to take these nasty people to court to get your babies back! GET THEM REGISTERED PLEASE! And another thing to think about is to get them Microchipped. Sorry for being so long-Iam just a big worry wart.

Hi, I have question about registering puppy.

If the breeder said that the puppy is already registered, do i need to registered it again or change the name once i bought the puppy?

Please let me know

Thank you
