Where to Buy Puppies Online From Legitimate Breeders/Sellers

Buying a puppy online may, at first, seem like a perfect idea. But, you should perform an Internet search to learn about some of the problems that others have had with certain sellers. The first – and most important – consideration is the legitimacy of the breeders and sellers. Just as you should only deal with legitimate online sellers of all goods and services, you should be extra careful when adding a new furry member to your family. Here are some tips to help you identify trustworthy breeders.

  • Get references from all breeders/sellers with whom you make contact. Get names, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of some people who have purchased puppies online from these breeders. Contact some or all of these customers to verify that they had a rewarding experience, that the sellers were honest, and that they received the puppy for sale they wanted.
  • Use search engines to help verify the honesty of breeders/sellers. Enter the breeder's name into one or more of the best search engines and see what you find. Your search results may result in your visiting complaint sites, blogs, and forums. Other websites that are puppy-oriented may have information – good or not so good – about the sellers you are considering.
  • Get all the breeders' contact information, including telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, physical addresses, and owner's names. Try the phone number and see if it works. Verify the physical address through the Internet. You should be able to learn if they exist and that they are are who they state they are.
The most important puppy buying advice is to always deal with a reputable breeder/seller. When you find puppies online, you'll always see wonderful pictures and great stories. Honest breeders/sellers will have the beautiful live puppies for sale that are the subject of these pictures.
