What is scary about that is you can buy a dog of pretty much any breed with champion sired parents and health testing out the wazoo that comes iwth a lifetime guarantee of health for less than this place charges.
Oh yes I've come across them before. they claim to cater to celebs I think. I would not pay $1,500 for a mismarked Boston..sheesh. Don't know if anyone is familiar with the old Nick show Pete and Pete, but when they say she is the tiniest Boston ever, it reminds me of Artie saying "Smallest dog...in the wooooorld!"

These are evil disgusting horrible people, their brokers, and have been sued many times for selling sick animals, but they just keep on trucking. They shouldn't just be shut down they should be wiped from the face of the earth.
Did you see their adopt/rescue page? What a bunch of a holes.
Oh and I just love this part: "The puppy is registered with one of the following registries. Continental Kennel Club, American Kennel Club, APR or ACA and other quality registers. All puppies have "open registration" no contracts. You can have your own litters, it's your dog. "

Well you forget the stupid people factor. It's just like anything. Someone wants to say 'Muffy was $5000' so she MUST be MUCH better than YOUR dog. Even if your dog is truely a properly bred dog.
People spending that much dough on a petshop pup totally get what they deserve. Look at it this way, if they are shelling out $5000 for a sick puppy, at least they can afford to get it the best treatments possible.
My own personal pet peeve is on puppyfind, 9 of 10 puppies on their are 'show prospects'... ya right. If that's not bad enough, people w/ odd registries like ContKC and other's say show prospect... as if that registry even has real shows. They totally pray on people who know nothing about purebreds or dogs.
