I had been looking for a shihpoo puppy for a while and came across one on the Purebred Breeders LLC website. I fell inlove with a puppy on there, called, and made an impulse buy.
And although very expensive, everything seemed legit. Then my friends began expressing their skepticism about the site. I felt a huge knot in my stomach -- I had already signed the contract with Purebred Breeders, and couldn't turn around without for fitting $495. I tried to stay positive about the integrity of the website over the next couple of days and hoped that the breeder wasn't crazy and was actually taking care of my baby.
Purebred Breeders blew up my phone in the days between my purchase and when the puppy was to be flown to me. They wanted to make sure I was aware of all my puppies needs, vet stuff, and flight arrival time. This made me feel a little more secure. The day my puppy was to arrive my breeder called me -- and not in conference call which is against Purbred's terms -- to tell me puppy was okay and that she's sorry for all of Purebred Breeder's sketchiness.
My puppy arrived at the airport in a nice kennel with food and nice blanket inside. I was so surprised! He wasn't coughing and seemed to be perfectly healthy. Two days later I went to the vet, who agreed I got a great puppy and was so lucky!
All in all, the breeder was only getting $900 for a dog i paid $1,800 for.
I made an impulse buy and luckily it turned out in my favor but you never know. Best thing would be to just buy from a breeder.
