First I would like to say we are a licensed business and breeder.
We are also state licensed and inspected. Here is one of our inspection reports
Finding a new companion on the internet can be a fun and safe experience if you take the time and make sure you are dealing with a real business, and true loving breeder.
Many puppy mill's and back yard breeders operate with out a business license or with out even being inspected by anyone. MANY of them do mix breed dogs, maltipoo, shih poo, shichons, shorkies, or any other mix so they don't have to register the puppies they produce. Some will also sell purebred puppies with NO PAPERS. Some registry will do an inspection on your place if you register so many puppies. Over the last several years several organizations report an increasing number of complaints concerning online pet sales, including the American Kennel Club, the Council of Better Business Bureaus, the Humane Society of the United States and the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
It takes special people to be a Professional ethical responsible breeder, not every one can do it. Professional breeders are knowledgeable, about what they are breeding, the good and the bad, they also NEVER over breed their dogs, they take steps to be a licensed business, inspected and always there for their puppy parents no matter what.
Unfortunately on the internet today around 90% of the breeders listed are NOT a licensed business or inspected. Puppy parents every where needs to realize if you deal with a unlicensed business they have NO RECOURSE if there is ever a problem. Also most contracts are voided. So what dose this mean for puppy parents? If you decide to go with illegal unlicensed businesses you most likely have given away any money you paid for the puppy and keep these fly by night breeders (scammers) puppy mills in business, or in a worse case you will pay for a puppy and NEVER get a puppy or maybe even the wrong puppy.
It is very easy for scammers/breeders to change their domain name and phone number then move on to the next hard working person to steal their money and give them the heart ache of a poorly bred puppy, or no puppy at all.
One of the ways you can make sure you get a happy, healthy, puppy is devoting your time researching before you adopt your puppy. Make sure the breeder you choose to use is licensed. This can help insure a happy ending for you and your puppy..
Breeding dogs is a very serious business and should be ran as such. Breeders weather they are ethical, unethical or even a scammer can make thousands of dollars a year. For example lets say a breeder has 6 females and 1 male. Lets say each female has 5 puppies. If they sold each puppy that would be about 3000.00 from that mom if you times that by all the moms 6 that would be a total of 18,000. That is if you only breed that mom 1 times a year there are breeders that breed their moms back to back so each mom would have 2 litters a year so that would be double the income. So the income would be 36,000 dollars a year.
This income is more then what some people make working a full time job. When you work a job they take our tax's and your pay your income tax's. When back-yard breeders, scammer and unlicensed breeders don't have a business licensed they are NOT paying their taxes. Like the rest of us do. If you buy from them you are more likely to have issues because they are just out for the MONEY. They careless about the long term they just want a quick buck.
ONLY USE A BUSINESS LICENSED BREEDER...
Here at Fuzzy Wuzzy Pups we always encourage you to buy or adopt a puppy locally. If you can find a ethical honest breeder that dose the testing they should do, and offers a written health warranty . Visit them for a new family member. Here are a couple of ways to find a local breeder.
You can call around to the local groomers, and ask if they know of any breeders . If you don't find any that way you can call around to local vet's offices and ask them if they know any one that breeders. If they give you numbers give them a call and see if they do the genetic testing they should.
Another great way to find a local breeder is to ask around at pet parks.
