ARE INTERNET PURCHASES SAFE?
People calling us from all across the country often ask us this question. Not only do we consider it a good one, it also shows good discernment and judgement on the callers part!
Before internet use grew to be an everyday household event, puppy buyers were often limited to their local newspaper advertisements for contact numbers for finding a new pet. Now the entire county has been opened up for your search. The internet has opened to you, the buyer, a huge new group of breeders to speak with and consider.
Remember: The internet not only opens up the possibility of a bad experience it also gives you many more opportunities than ever before to find exactly what you are looking for, because it also allows for you to search the entire Nation for reputable breeders. You will now have many choices of experienced breeders to choose from instead of only whomever is limited to your geographical location.
Our advice continues to be that you should first search your own area for good quality, reputable breeders. If you do not find someone you are comforatable with or someone who has what you are looking for - then begin a nationwide search through the internet - but always use caution!
Look for a breeder who raises their puppies in their home with their family, one who can tell you about the temperament of the parents as well as the personality of each puppy, who does the necessary health testing on both parents, and offers a written health guarantee.
We have personally purchased quite a few dogs and puppies from across the country that we have found on the iternet. Our experiences thus far have been extremely positive.
Good-Luck in your search! And be careful in your selection!
