How Good Is Your Poodle Breeder?

Mar 31, 2008
Not all Poodle breeders are alike. Buying from puppy broker websites online is the same as buying from puppy mills. A genuine Poodle breeder cares passionately about what homes the pups wind up in. Fake Poodle breeders couldn't care less. Never buy a puppy sight unseen, lest you be scammed by a fake Poodle breeder. Please consider adopting from your local animal shelter or a breed rescue instead.

You want a Poodle puppy and you know not to buy one from a pet store. Good for you! That will help stop the cruel practice of puppy mills. But if you also want to help stop puppy mills, don't buy a Poodle puppy from those Internet sites that sell puppies like catalogue goods. They are fake Poodle breeders, which ultimately get all of their animals from puppy mills. Often the Poodle puppies they get are fake Poodles, they only look like they're purebred but aren't.

There are middlemen sites that act as middlemen from puppy mills to unsuspecting puppy buyer. This scum is commonly called a puppy broker. They often pretend to be real Poodle breeders (or whatever breed they're flogging). No reputable Poodle breeders will have more than a few puppies for sale per year. No reputable Poodle breeder will ship a puppy to you. All reputable Poodle breeders will want you to visit their place.

The easiest way to tell a real Poodle breeder from a fake online is to see if they give a darn where their puppies end up. If a site just asks you your method of payment and what your shipping address is, they are fake Poodle breeders. A real Poodle breeder will kick you out the door if you don't pass their tests for one of their pups, no matter how much money you offer them.

Buying a purebred Poodle puppy should take a long time, sometimes months or even years. You normally are put on a waiting list before the parents are even bred. Your home is also subject to a inspection by the caring Poodle breeder to see that you have the space for a dog. They also often do background checks on you. However, you get far more for your money by getting puppy from a real Poodle breeder.

Also, there are pay ahead schemes involving pedigreed dogs like Poodle puppies. This is when someone online or on the phone claims to be a Poodle breeder and has puppies to give away if you'll pay for the transportation costs. There are no puppies, of course. Never buy a puppy sight unseen. Here's an even better Poodle information tip - there are Poodle breed rescues in most states and countries. Adopt an abandoned dog rather than risk getting scammed by fake Poodle breeders.

Adult Poodles are often male and often already trained. They usually have all their shots and are already neutered. They are usually abandoned because their previous owners bought the Poodle puppy on impulse, not realizing how much time and devotion is needed for basic Poodle care. Since Poodles are so popular, there might be Poodles at your local animal shelter. If there aren't, you shelter or http://Petfinder.com can help you find a Poodle breed rescue in your area.
