Pandemic Puppy Scam

Tips to avoid a scam:

Never buy online. You want to see both the puppy and its parents up close and in person.

Ask lots of questions of the breeder, and expect them to ask you questions, too.

A reputable breeder will not have more than 2 – 3 breeds they deal with. They should be experts in the breeds they sell.

A reputable breeder will not have more than a litter or two at a time. Puppies are a lot of work, and giving them a proper start in life requires a lot of time.

Make sure you see health records of the parents and the puppy.

Expect the breeder to have a waiting list.

Know that you may not get a puppy quickly. This is a 10 – 15 year commitment, so you don’t need to finalize the decision today. Take the time to get it right.

Last, but not least, NO PUPPIES UNDER THE CHRISTMAS TREE!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
