PAUL AND CHERYL POSTED PICTURES OF A PUPPY NAMED "T-CUP CHLOE ON THE PUPPYFIND.COM WEBSITE AFTER I ORIGINALLY INQUIRED ABOUT ANOTHER PUPPY THEY HAD LISTED (T-CUP MAX). 


EVERYTHING WAS GOING FINE UNTIL I RECEIVED HIS CONTRACT.  IT CONTAINED ALL TYPES OF STIPULATIONS AND INVOLVED THE BUYER DISHING OUT HUNDREDS OF DOLLARE IN VET AND MISC. FEES BEFORE THE HOWARDS WOULD EVEN CONSIDER REPLACING YOUR PUPPY.....


.....0pt">I MADE CHANGES TO MY CONTRACT AND HE REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE CONTRACT BECAUSE I INITIALED EVERY LABELED LINE INSTEAD OF ON THE LINES HE PROVIDED. AFTER AGREEING TO CERTAIN CHANGES OVER THE PHONE, THE HOWARDS SENT ME A NEW CONTRACT AND DEMANDED THAT I DO NOT PUT ANY OTHER MARKINGS ON THE CONTRACT OUTSIDE THE AREAS DESIGNATED BY THEM. 


THE WHOLE CONTRACT WAS SETUP TO HAVE THE BUYER ABSORB HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS IN PUPPY FEES FOR A SICK PUPPY, A PUPPY THAT WAS NOT IN YOUR POSSESSION, OR EVEN A THAT ARRIVED BUT DIDN'T MATCH THE PUPPY IN THE PHOTOS.


THE HOWARDS WEBSITE (I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT IS TO BE HONEST: PUPPYELUV?  PUPPIES TO LOVE? BOTH NAMES EXIST THE CONFUSION IS ONE HAS THE PUPPY AND ONE HAS YOUR MONEY).


THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT BOTH THEIR LISTINGS (ON PUPPYFIND AND NEXTDAYPETS) STATES A CREDIT CARD PAYMENT WILL BE ACCEPTED AT A 3% CHARGE VIA PAYPAL. BUT, IN HIS CONTRACT AND EMAILS TO ME, HE PRINTED A 4% PAYPAL FEE WILL BE CHARGED.


FINALLY, THE MORNING PRIOR TO MAKING MY PAY-PAL PAYMENT I FOUND THAT ALL (NOT SOME) OF THE PICTURES OF THE NEW PUPPIES POSTED DAYS EARLIER HAD BEEN REMOVED FROM THE PUPPYFIND.COM SITE.  THEY WERE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND. 


I EMAILED THE HOWARDS ABOUT THE MISSING PROFILES (T-CUP CHLOE,ZOEY,JOEY,MAX,MACEY) AND ASKED WHY THEY WERE REMOVED? 


THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY THOUGHT I WAS COMMITTED TO BUYING CHLOE SO THEY TOOK HER PROFILE DOWN.... I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING "WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER PUPPY PROFIES?" THEY NEVER ANSWERED THAT QUESTION!!!


I REQUESTED NEW PICTURES OF T-CUP CHLOE IN CERTAIN POSITIONS AND WITH CERTAIN ITEMS (WHICH WERE PROVIDED). ANOTHER RED FLAG THAT I JUST COULDN'T GET PAST. I WANTED TO CONFIRM THAT THE ORIGINAL PICTURES THEY POSTED OF T-CUP CHLOE MATCHED THE PUPPY IN THE NEWLY TAKEN PICTURES AND***  THE*** PICTURES***WERE ***CLEARLY ***NOT ***OF***THE***SAME***PUPPY!!


THE PHYISICALLY APPEARANCE WAS STRICKENLY DIFFERENT. EVERTHING FROM HAIR COLOR, TEXTURE, LENGTH, BASIC FEATURES, ETC.). 


THE HOWARDS ADVERTISED THIS PUPPY UNDER FAKE PICTURES AND THE PICTURES THEY SENT ME WERE UNDENIABLY DIFFERENT!!!!


THESE INCIDENTS HAPPENED ON DECEMBER 10 -12, 2009 .

HOW TO AVOID SCAMS FROM COMMERCIAL DOG BREEDERS

AUTHOR: lovesdogs2323 - (United States of America)

Thanks for sharing. The loss of a pet is truly heartbreaking.  That said, you should have known better. Shame on you for giving money away to these people without doing your research.

BUYER BEWARE: A reputable breeder does not advertise on sites with cutesy names like pups4u2luv.com or Poos4u.com.

Any breeder who lists more than two breeds with more than one or two litters at a time is likely pretty shady.

Also note that on these web sites there are about often 20 types of dogs being advertised for sale, not all of whom are "purebred". Also - why don't they ever list the exact weight of mom and dad or post pictures of them? Because they are listing a range of what normal adult dogs of that breed typically weigh, because they are not in touch with the mom and dad of the litter - a common clue that the dogs are not being treated well or even being watched over by the puppy mill owner or so called breeder ("commercial breederrs" fyi are puppy mill owners). and treat them terrible. If you want an AKC registered puppy that is for sure not going to have any problems, go to AKC.com and look under their recommended Breed Clubs to find reputable and responsible breeders who love and care for these dogs as their own.

YOU WILL SAVE MONEY & HEARTACHE BY PURCHASING FROM AKC BRED LITTERS!!!!!!

This means talking to reputable people direct from the AKC who can tell you the truth about Champion Bloodlines and Breeders to go to.

PLEASE IN THE FUTURE! GO TO : http://www.akc.org/breederinfo/breeder_search.cfm

IF YOU TELL ONE OF THE AKC RECOMMENDED BREEDERS THAT YOUR DOG WILL BE A PET THAT IS FIXED AND NOT USED TO BREED OR SHOW THEY WILL OFTEN KNOCK DOWN THE PRICE BY SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS. YOU WILL SAVE IN THE LONG RUN ON HEALTH COSTS AS WELL, AS YOU CAN SEE FROM UNLIMITED STORIES ON THIS PAGE. AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DO NOT BUY FROM PET STORES!!! THANKS ALL FOR LISTENING, er READING. DOG IS GOOD. FOR THE LOVE OF DOG. . . do your research!
