I have decite not to get the yorkie pup. Shes very sweet but I can do business with the lady. I was over there talking to her and she said in a very cocky way "I dont just give my pups to anyone" Almost like i was a bad person or something.
I still love the pup but there is no way i can do business with her.
If you like the pup and you have already gone thru this crap with this lady then why not get the pup you want? The way I see it once you pay for the dog and take Lulu home you don't have to deal with that lady, maybe I am wrong but I have had Cody for two yrs. and I haven't seen the person we got him from in all this time. Maybe when she made that comment to you about not giving her pups to just anyone she was kinda telling you that she thought you were a good person and trusted to sell you one of her pups. If I were you I think I would think this over again before making that decision.
I do agree to what Cody's mom is saying.....Also though, I understand where you are coming from too - God forbid the puppy should have a problem down the road - she doesn't sound like someone easy to deal with.
Well, I think the lady is being really protective of her pup, which I admire what she is doing. I don't think you should take that personal at all. You should make her belive that you are the right person for the pup and you will take good care of the pup. You should make every attemp to try and have a conversation with her, after all the pup you want, is alreayd in your heart, so why give up so easly? when the lady throws something you don't like at you.
There are allot of people who abuses animals and she is just looking out for the pup. I'm not sure what you are going through with this lady, but I would get the pup and be done with it.
You think you have it bad. Check this out. I contacted someone about a dog. And I told them that I was looking for a dog for my son, he's always asking me to get a puppy. Well the lady told me that she does not give her pup's to kids to play with. Now imagine how I felt about that, she treated that pup like it has a pot of gold she was trying to protect from anyone getting it, like a hawk on it's pray. Anyways, I told her she could keep her pup that another the pup that I get will be one lucky one, and that I will go esle where.

Bekah, why didn't you try to convince the lady that your household was the right one for that pup? After I read your post this question popped up in my head, just curious, not trying to start anything.
no matter what Im gonna end up seeing her alot, she lives next door.
If she would have said it diffrently then she did it wouldnt have buged me at all. It was quite strange, I was over there talking to her and we started talking about dogs and then out of the blue she snaped at me.
I dont know whats going on with her because befor that she said something about her usualy driving to ak to see her pups because she could get a few thousand for them, the way she talked about it it sounded almost like she was in it for the money. I didnt say anything about it, I told her how sweet her dogs were and how we allove the little one and I told her about rocky having eplisie and just normal dog talk. I was trying to be very plesant because we live very close.
I did try to tell her how nice we were and that we love animals but she kept giving me a very strange look so I said "ok well ill see you later or something" and walked out the door.
Her kids were even shocked when she snaped at me. they looked at me with a "WOW" kinda look.
I think it would be better to find another pup and try to get along with her. I mean if there are problems with the pup later she may not want to help and that can cause problems between us, if the pup gets sick and died that could cause problems. I think it would be nothing but a bunch of problems if we decited to buy the pup.
I still dont understand whyshe snapped at me though I mean She trusted us enough to let us barrow the pup, but then she just got snappy.
I totaly understand looking out for her pups and if she had sat me down asked a ton of questions explained that she wont sell to someone she does not know very well I would have been fine but to snap at me like she did was totaly diffrent.
I think you made the right choice. You would probably never have a moments peace if you did get the little yorkie. Weren't the husband and wife arguing over price too? She DOES sound like it is all about the money. The only part that is confusing is that she let you take the puppy home for a visit. That sounds like a trusting person but her other actions do not sound nice at all.
Hang in there, the right one will come along without all the excess baggage (you know, like a weird neighbor)
monkeyeatbutt, I am sorry, I didn't know the lady lived next to you in that case you probably are making the right decision. Good luck in finding another adorable pup, I know you will, there are a lot of them out there!
Yah they were argueing about the price. she said $750 but he wanted to go lower because we lived close, we are nice people, and we just bought a house so $750 stright up is a good amount expecaly when you just forked over a down payemnt and closing costs, I didnt argue on what she wanted to get but he felt that was asking to much. To be honest I think sence he couldnt keep the pup he wanted us to take it that way he could see it when ever he wanted to.
hes a real nice guy. I think she may have mood swings real bad or somethng because it was totaly out of the blue.
Im gonna keep looking. Ive been having a hard time though I want to get one local that way I can check everything out. I have never bought a dog befor, every dog and cat I have ever had were given to me by someone or rescues of some kind. So sence Im new to this I dont know exactly what to look for over the phone or online and I would rather see everything.
Buying a dog is hard, I have gone from looking into any breeder i could find to looking just close to me (after i herd some storys about people getting a raw deal) to looking everywere. I call shelters almost every day, Check petfinder 3 times a day, its crazy. I hope I find one sooner or later.
I'm so sorry, I know you had your heart set on this little girl. I know you've got to be very upset that you're not getting this pup, but it sounds to me like the seller is NOT someone you'd like to have "in your life" for the next 15 or so years.
As hard as it is, be patient, keep looking and you will find the perfect pup out there, just waiting for you to come along and make him/her your furkid.
