Isn't it funny...

When you start requesting health records for the pup you want to purchase, or even the pups parents records. The next email you receive is "oh I just sold that pup to someone else". I find that interesting, tell me what you guys think.

Really? Well that is a clear sign to bolt!

In the long run,you may have lost a cute pup,but gained a healthy pup from a different breeder. Everyone should have no problem supplying health records. Red flag for sure.

Did this happen with one puppy or more than one?

I know it is hard to do this, but when people ask my advice on finding a pup I recommend you (generic "you") start in this order:
- Find a breeder that you feel comfortable discussing everything you can about your potential puppy and their breeding program
- Look up the parents of the puppies and verify their health testing
- Look at the puppies last

Granted, sometimes we come across the puppy first (web sites especially), but do your homework now and you have a better chance of avoiding regrets later.

This happened with two different breeders. I think its funny, because I am new to this and it seems like puppy purchasing is a competitive sport. Along with the occasional "I have your puppy here". The next day is sold.

Where are you located? If we know that, then perhaps someone here can help you find a good breeder.

Kimberly, that's excellent advice. I don't think I've heard it quite so clearly and in such a rationale method. Of course, much harder to do.
