I like to check my local paper to see who is selling what and what types of colors they have for puppy's.
I called one lady right now and she had chihuahua's for sale. She told me she had one left and was selling him for 325.00. I asked if the puppy came with papers and she said, "you don't need papers unless you are going to show the dog and chihuahua's are not dogs people show" I said, "oh really" she said, "yes". I then said, "well are the parents onsite" She had to think for awhile and then said, "yes". I then asked for the very least what warranties do you have for your contract and do the puppy's have shots or dewormings. She told me,"none no shots, wormings, or guarantees, but they do come with a zip lock bag of dog food!" I was like oh god whatever goodbye! I can see why so many breeders get bad names thanks to her and more like her that is the reason!

its crazy the responces you get sometimes...i stoped doing what you did,,,it made me so crazy i could barely contain myself...poor pups...no shots, no worming...no vet check...no papers even...darn shame
huronbreeze I hear you! I was actually looking for a certain color puppy, but sometimes I do call just to see what they say. I don't think I will anymore it just ticks me off to much! Hearing a persons voice and knowing what I know makes me sick to think she is telling people that don't know much about puppy's this stuff. Then to top it off she sounds for real like a real honest person. If I did not know about dogs I would believe her! Then they buy the puppy! UGH!
that's soo sad cuz now ya kno that nobody's ever gonna buy that puppy cuz its obviously not taken cared for :'-( !! That's just terrible !! the dog food's probably poisoned .. !! and i see dog shows and people show those dogs alll theee timeee !! that really pisses me off !!
No shots or wormings? Wouldn't the puppy get extremely sick? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. And no guarantees..that is just not right, obviously she doesn't care one bit what happens to the puppies..as long as she gets to stuff her wallet.
I wouldn't buy a puppy unless it had all it's shots and worming. I learned the hard way. I had bought a puppy out of the recycler paper and the puppy died a week later with parvo. I don't know why these so called breeders don't charge extra money for the puppy and get them their shots. I would mind paying extra just to make sure the puppies is fully vacinated and healthy.
