If you can post what has transpired between you and the breeder, without naming the breeder specifically or including any links to their website then we can help you figure out if it sounds legit or not.
Shiny posted this link in another thread about what to look for when trying to find ethical breeders. This may help you
I would never purchase a puppy from a breeder who required a money gram. I would rather send a check or money order. If the pup is not 8wks old, I would send a check. If they didn't take checks, then I would pass. This is just my personal opinion. I have never had a reputable breeder refuse my check, and I let them, I have no problem waiting for it to clear to get my pup. Now mind you, I have shipped all of my dogs, and have not purchased local yet. just rescued local.
As a breeder, I will not take a check when the people pick up their puppy, but welcome them 2wks before pick up.
I know my spelling sucks, but another huge red flag, is poor English and spelling. Not talking about a particular pup, but always saying the pup, the animal or the dog.
I hope you can post the basics so we can help you out. take care
If you have a question now, I would back out. Tell them you would like to fly in to pick up the pup and will pay in full at that time and see what their answer is. A reputable breeder will not mind showing you their facility or home.
Ask for specific details about the pup and see how they respond. I post a puppy blog and keep up with it nearly daily, so look at their website or blog to see how much information is given. There are free website and blog companies out there and if they truly have pups, they will have pictures as the "same" pup grows up and detailed descriptions of their pups.
Also, how much information do you have on them? Do you have a home address? A telephone number? Do they have references they give. I give out references every time I have a litter. How about AKC #'s? Ask for the parents AKC #'s and cross reference it with AKC to determine if they are the registered owners. Just a few thoughts.
