Other breeders/puppy mills are posting information stating that there is no danger in shipping your puppy. I’ve talked to too many people who have lost their puppy after it was shipped to them. Anyone who ships a 3-5 pound puppy has no feeling at all for the little guy. I do not care if you take excellent care of your puppies, when they are put in a cargo hold with dozens of other puppies that may be coughing and sneezing, that puppy is now in danger of catching whatever the other dogs have. Some of your most dangerous diseases a puppy can catch are from airborne contaminates. Not to mention the stress this little puppy has to endure from the long plane ride which will make the puppy more susceptible to anything in the air. I, as a concerned breeder, will not take any chances with my puppies. I do not care if the chance of loss is low, I won’t risk it. I feel sorry for the people I have turned down but my puppies mean too much to me. I personally sleep in the same area as my puppies. I have missed weddings, vacations and other events because a mother is giving birth and I won’t risk losing a puppy. I am the first person these puppies see when they first open their eyes. Their first weeks are the most crucial in developing a puppies personality and you will see how loving and trusting all my dogs are by just one visit.
The mother dogs have complete freedom to roam around my house and yard as the new dog door gives us a rest from opening the door all the time. No puppy mill can give their dogs the kind of attention I give my dogs. So before you buy your puppy, think about the kind of home you would like it to come from. Also I would like to put to rest a few things about puggles. There is no such thing as a pocket puggle. There are the runts of the litter but they are scarce. If your breeder says otherwise, ask for references and pictures of these pocket puggles. Of course they’re going to give you a number and the person on the other line is going to say their dog is only 8 pounds. Guess what, you just called the breeder’s friend or neighbor. Unless they can give you 10 legitimate references who will send you pictures of their dogs, chances are they’re lying.
Second Generation Puggles are not a true puggle. Yes, two puggles have bred together but there is no true way to tell what these puppies will look like. You will get variations of a puggle. In size, appearance, and color. A true puggle is with a male pug and a female beagle. Another thing is puppy mills sell to each other as to get the cheapest dog and the biggest one so they will get the most puppies. These dogs all come from the same line and will pass on the same genetic defects to their puppies. Mills do not care what your puppy looks like or what genetic defects it may carry. They have your money and they’re just interested in numbers and selling as many dogs as possible.
More information on puppy mills can be found on this website: http://www.aspca.org/fight-cruelty Just follow the link and click on “puppy mills.” You will be surprised what you find out. When you go to a prospective breeder and the puppy looks a mess, do not buy this puppy because you feel sorry for it. This is what they are counting on. Report this place and put them out of business so more puppies don’t have to suffer. Until concerned buyers take a stand and stop this cycle of animal cruelty, it will continue to happen.
On one final note, if you call us, we will never call you back and push you into buying a puppy unless you ask us to unlike puppy mills who will keep calling and bad mouthing honest private breeders because they need every sale they can get. We would rather you do the research and make the decision yourself because this is a new addition to your family. So please take care and do your research before you decide where to buy your puppy. Any questions, call or email us anytime.
