Default I'm slightly nervous about this breeder

she keeps bailing on me eveytime we set up to meet and for me to meet the puppy. if she bails on me again Sunday I'm done trying with her. I was supposed to meet her today but she called and canceled again.

We are open to taking in a dog that needs a home. As we are newer to Chi's nothing to hard but willing to help. We are located in Denver Colorado. If anyone hears of anything that needs a home please let us know

Some people are good business people; and, some people are good at breeding dogs.
They don't always go hand in hand Since this pup is many weeks from being ready
to go to a home, she may not feel it's so urgent to meet with you. Just guessing...
I wouldn't walk away from the puppy unless you see signs of her not caring for the dogs
and not doing responsible breeding.

I agree with Therese, but I also think that if you have a bad feeling - you should trust that. Has this breeder done any health testing with her dogs? (Eyes, patellas, hearts?) I would guess not. From the pics you posted, she is breeding pet quality, out of standard dogs. That's fine if you want a pet, but usually for the same money or just a little more - you can get a well bred dog that meets the standard and with generations of healthy dogs behind them! You may want to narrow your search down to a reputable breeder in your area. There are a TON of good breeders in Colorado.

I know that I get impatient and my standards are a bit too high with people. I have owned my own biz for over 10 years and tend to have very HIGH standards for people. These are pet quality dogs, that was fine for me as I was not wanting some AMAZING CRAZY show dog lol I will wait and see what happens on Sunday but it just weirds me out that she's canceling so much. She also said that she wanted to bring the little girl to my place on Sunday. I don't think thats a good idea personally but I could be wrong again since I don't know much about chi's breeding and puppies.

Don't let her bring the puppy to you ! you want to see the pups with mum and meet the chi family.Sounds odd to me

Well I got a clal from her that she wanted to bring the puppy to the Remote Control store where my husbands competition was and there were prolly 20+ people there and it was pretty nuts. I told her I didnt feel that was a good spot to have her that young and that I didn't know everyone there. She only lives 2.5 miles from the store. I told her that I could come there and hang out and she said no. She did not want me there so she offered again that she could come to our place. It really gave me red flags that she did not want me at her place at all. She said that if that is how I wanted it then I would not be getting her oh well. There are many other dogs and truthfull owners out there

just so sad I don't know a whole lot about chihuahuas and breeding but taking a 4 week old away from momma and littermates does not make much sense
