Default Opinion please

I've found a chi that is beautiful, the breaded sounds good and I have conversed with her a fair bit via email. She seems nice a knowledgable. She's KC registered but a bit higher than my price bracket. They're 143 miles away but they are willing to deliver the puppy as she is a licenced pet courier. I wondered what people's opinions are on the pup and whether she is worth the money. Also, if I am unable to visit how am I best able to make sure that I'm getting the right pup for me and that my money is going to the right place (they want a 200 deposit)

Here is the puppy:



And here is the information from the advert:

Gorgeous litter of 3 chocolate parti boys and 1 choc sable parti girl pup.

Dad is lilac tri and mum is chocolate tuxedo. Parents have been tested for luxating patella.

Pups have been vet checked and will leave microchipped, with an extensive puppy pack and a lifetime of advice.

Ready next month, now available for viewings. A 200 deposit will secure the pup of your choice.

Choc tuxedo boy pup - 875
Choc pup with white collar - 875
Choc sable parti girl - 875
Choc pup with most white on - 975

Melissa, she's adorable! And more importantly she comes from a good breeder. I'm not sure if this is standard in England, but when I found Leo, his breeder was 5-6 hours away (depending on traffic) so I requested vet referrals, previous buyer references, photos of mom and dad, ect. I didn't meet Leo until the day I brought him home. To be honest, at that time he wasn't exactly my favorite puppy, there was one puppy I wanted so bad from a show breeder who kept changing her mind on whether she was going to sell him or keep him and finally she decided to keep him so I was heart broken. And then I found Leo, who of course was cute but I really really loved his breeder. She knew her stuff and took such amazing care of her dogs! The quality and temperament of her dogs really show when I see other chihuahuas, even when comparing to my other two (who I wouldn't trade for the world). He Is bred to standard and has a wonderful disposition which to me is more important than looks. That being said, ur puppy is beautiful and if her breeder is great, she sounds like "the one!!!"

She looks lovely! Will she stay chocolate if they say she is choc sable? I'm not expert at all but just wanted to say she's very cute and the breeder sounds good to me.
Why do u think one of the pups dearer than the others??

What a pretty, pretty girl - I love her colour & markings. Can you ask her to send you a side profile shot so you can see her head at all?

If it's any help, I bought 3 of mine from the same breeder sight unseen without a worry in the world - being psychic helps a bit though, the pics of the boys just screamed at me ..."I belong to you, and you belong to me". I had made my decision in a nano-second, it was actually quite overwhelming, and there was never any second thoughts or doubt in my mind about them.

The 3rd pup that came from them, tiny MidgeyMoo, I didn't get the same "rush" and in fact had to come in here to ask for opinions as I got no "I'm yours message" whatsoever and found her completely unattractive looks wise, compared to my boys. I went ahead based on what the girls here said and I'm so glad I did because she's the apple of everyone's eye - as in her pack, and everyone who encounters her.

I spent all day yesterday looking for chocolates, I adore them, & that's what I was after when I found MidgieMoo, hmm, perhaps that's why I was so undecided.

She is gorgeous. May I ask what breeder she is from? I find the price ok considering she is KC registered and her parents actually got tested for LP. I have seen puppies beeing far more expensive.

I do like the chocolate coloured ones. In fact she was my favourite from the bunch before the breeder told me which one she was. I will certainly ask for more info if my OH agrees on the price but he thinks she's too expensive.

Any psychic messages coming through to you about whether she is mine?

Zorana - did you have an idea of his temperament before you got him?

I don't know if she would stay chocolate. I'm not sure what chocolate sable is or why she is it and the others aren't. I was also wondering myself why one is more expensive.

I really need to learn how to do this multiquote thing!

Kinda, Jennifer told me how the parents temperaments were so I just went with that and what other buyers said about their puppies from Leo's mom and dad.
