My neighbor is buying a puppy from Craig's List
This post is going to be long:
I posted couple of times already that we are going to have our new puppy this Friday. So now my neighbors got all excited about the puppy and so did their kids and they wanted to get a shih-tzu...I thought...great! Odeio will have great company! And yesterday they were at my place to get "recommendations" on what to buy for the puppy. I was surprised since they decided on the breed just this past Tuesday (it took them 20 min to decide on the breed, Reasons: they thought Shih-Tzu was cute and one of their friends had a Shih-Tzu) and was wondering how they found a puppy that fast. Well, they went online to craigs list and contacted a "breeder" who was selling puppies from a Walmart parking lot. They went on Saturday to meet the "breeder" and puppies (apparently mommy and daddy are both his dogs). They picked their puppy and haggled for the price (from $600 to $450) and finalized the deal.
Here are the hi-lights :
They saw the puppies in Wal-mart parking lot, the "breeder" said they did not have to travel all the way and could bring puppies close by.
The puppies are 5 weeks old now, no teeth, he said they had to take them by this weekend (Feb 15th) if not he will have to give them to someone since he had people "bidding" for his puppies.
So they will be bringing home a 6 week old puppy with no teeth not on any kind of solid food and they are planning to buy formula and bottle feed the puppy
He showed them CKC registration papers for mommy and daddy, but the address on it does not exist.
He told them that the puppy (at 5 weeks) received all immunizations and that the vet cleared him to go to his new home.
They have not asked me for guidance or advise on any of these, so I'm not sure if it's my place to warn them or not?
Just had to vent, thanks for listening.
