Does anyone have any info regarding...

Purebred breeders (purebredbreeders.com)

It looks like an internet puppy mill.

Does anyone have any info regarding breeders/greeders who supply/use this site to sell puppies?

I recently found out someone I know used this site for a pup (who is my pups age), and was curious because the site gives limited information regarding parents, kennels and other health testing.

Thanks

Well one big red flag is that they sell "designer breeds". The dobe puppies look like they came from bybs.

That is what I figured.

No reputable breeder would advertise their pups on this site.

I was wondering if anyone has any information regarding kennels who use this site to market their pups (to potentially find where this one I brought up came from) or any personal experience.

All I can think of is a warehouse full of dogs breeding...

:: Order #4275B came in today: They want a Yorkie... ::

So sad. I don't think this person did any research, which doesn't make the dog any less of a pet, but supporting this kind of website and the breeders who supply them is just not good So sad for the dogs... constant puppy makers :/

Yes, they are a puppy mill/broker, they are in the middle of a lawsuit and there was a story on the Today Show about them

Did online puppy site sell sick pets? - Video on TODAY.com

People think that puppies are just like any other merchandise you order online. I don't feel sorry for them when it falls apart. They spend more time and money looking for "just the right purse".

More than buying online. This is an ONLINE AUCTION for puppies. I never saw that before! Has EBAY always allowed this??

I would assume that these kinds of puppies need extra attention and socialization. I too, don't feel bad for the end result when this sort of thing is done.

I guess now this dobie pup (as in my start to the thread) is developing aggression issues.

Any advice?

I already advised: Group classes, socialization and interaction (I have been inviting them for weeks to come out and play with the other pups), putting the pup on his back, etc. hopefully my advice and warnings take effect and things start to improve asap. This is a great breed, but it isn't for the week willed and ill-prepared.
