I think buyers do appreciate honest breeders that sell healthy pups and provide a health guarantee. I guess the bottom line is there shouldn't be many problems if the parents are tested and well cared for and the pups have a vet check before they go to a new home so there are no surprises. breeders should send home info about caring for the pup ( grooming, feeding, housebreaking ) and any problems that pertain to the breed. ( mine is possible low blood sugar) I printed up about 5 pages on caring for yorkies it took some time but didn't cost me anything but the paper it's printed on. It goes home with every pup. I send home nutra cal , the pups food it had been on, shot and worm records, and the registration papers are in order and go with the pup. I am here for the buyer with any questions or problems 24/7 and they have me cell and home phone.( and I answer it) I'm not trying to say I am perfect, but if a breeder does these things it really can prevent a big hassle for the future. Every breeder I'm sure will encounter a problem, it's how you handle the problem and satisfy your customer is what will give you a good or bad name in the business. AS far as buyers I go with my gutt. If I don't like the person or how they answer my questions , I don't sell to them. I had a lady with two small children ( 2 and 4 yrs) that wanted a pup and I told her no and why. ( I'm sure you all know why a tiny Yorkie pup wouldn't work with kids that age) She was REALLY MAD . To bad, it's my DUTY to the pup to find a home thats a good match. Again, saving me and the pup and the owner, heartbreak, vet bills etc,, in the future.

I stopped wondering about folks and their motivations on here long ago~
At this juncture, just trying to keep newbies from starting a dozen threads on one thought, keeping the threads and posts in line with the rules, ESPECIALLY the "treat others with respect" and "no advertising" is enough to keep all 5 mods busy!
