    I told my boyfriend that I wanted a puppy for Valentines Day last year and I was very excited getting my first Yorkshire Terrier. We both paid all the shipments charges and everything else we needed for her to come home. We picked her up from the airport and she was very nervous. Within a day or two she started to come around and get use to us. The more older she grew the more wild she became. I paid hard earn money out of my pockets to get her train it didn't work out. She's very hardheaded and after spending over 3,000 dollars for her it shouldn't be that way. I can't... More...

  • Horible experience from Purebred Breeders.com

    Do not purchase an animal from this company, they do not do a good job screening their breeders and don't really care what happens once they get your money! If you must use a broker, use someone else that actually screens the breeders carefully. For starters...We were told we were buying ($2300.00) a "miniature Golden Doodle" and that at the most he would 40 lbs. Within 5 months, we was 55lbs and now 14 months later he is 75lbs! When the puppy arrived we noticed something strange about his lack of energy and playfulness. Sure enough the breeder shipped him with parvo and... More...

    Do not buy a puppy from Puppy Spot. I bought one in September of 2016. They refuse to give me papers of my dog and in November after him falling very ill I had to get him sedated and get him an xray to see why he was limping on his left leg and we found out that he has severe hip displaysia. I spent $2600 on a sick puppy and now I have to pay $5000 on the hip surgery and I've had countless medical bills for him since September. He came with hookworm, an ear infection and giardia. Do not buy a dog from them they are crooks and a puppy mill and they wont give me my money back. They said... More...

  • Puppy is not purebred!!

    I bought a maltese puppy from Purebred Breeders Sept. 2015. I paid a lot and expected that the puppy would live up to his description which stated he was from a championship bloodline. Not true. He should have black eyes, which are hazel. His coat from his head to his shoulders is maltese but from there down the coat is curly and fuzzy. He is much larger than standard. My suspicions were validated by my vet today. I want to warn others not to use this site which has changed to puppyspot.com probably because they have disappointed so many. More...
  • Suspicious Website

    I have been researching purchasing a pug puppy for several weeks and came across Purebred Breeders.com. I am VERY suspicious of a website where you can purchase a puppy (essentially sight unseen) on the internet like I would a pair of socks. How are they shipped? How do I know that I will get the puppy pictured? What are the breeders like? Where are they located? When I called the company and spoke to one of their "counselors", I was even more suspicious. She told me I would have great difficulty finding a puppy that I could see before I purchased. When I told her that I... More...

  • Purebred Breeders are deceptive and commit fraud

    Living in a fourth floor walk-up I wanted a very small dog so I purchased an AKC eligible "purebred Chihuahua." From Purebred Breeders. She kept getting bigger and bigger and looking less and less like a Chihuahua. We finally asked her vet to do a DNA test. It came back showing she was Chihuahua on one side going back three generations but on the other side she had mixed parents all the way back for three generations with no particular breed outstanding. I have asked for a refund. They say DNA tests are unreliable and say she is Chihuahua on one side, as if that were good... More...

  • A whole lot of lies, and not the real puppy parents or location

    I started the process of buying a Yorkie puppy through purebred breeders and although I was told I had to pay an additional $400 for shipping dog from out of state on top of $3600 for the dog itself, I later found some pictures online of puppies from the same breeder on the exact same couch with other puppies born on the same day. Turned out it was the same breeder, and the puppies we only $550, and about 50-miles from me in the same state I live in. I drove to the breeders house and saw the mom and pictures of dad, and they weren't even CLOSE to the pictures I received from pure bred... More...

  • Huge deception

    I purchased a Toy poodle that is now one year old. She's 14 inches tall and weighs 12 lbs. Her advertisement claimed both her parents were between 4-6 lbs. I'm demanding a refund because obviously she is a Miniature, not a Toy. The breeder where she came from needs to be shut down. They didn't even know how to remove the dewclaws correctly. I was so totally ripped off. I'm disabled and it was so important for me to have a very small dog. I'm so disgusted with this place...DO NOT EVER PURCHASE A DOG THROUGH THIS CARELESS COMPANY. More...

I was told they screen the breeders, do home visits, make sure the puppies aren't from puppy mills, etc,. I would be getting that pup you see on the commercials.

    In December, 2013 I purchased a Boxer puppy from Mrs. Sherry McCoy, through Purebred Breeders.com at the cost of $2095.00. I have cared for dogs of all breeds since I was a child and the Boxer breed specifically since 1973. I have had Boxers from local breeders and from Boxer Rescue organizations during this time period and have trained everyone of them successfully, as far as adapting to life with a human and behaving in an orderly and consistent manner. Some of the rescue dogs came to me with "issues" due to abuse they experienced prior to my adopting them, but I was able to... More...

    I purchased a puppy from Purebred Breeders.com. The description was they had a snow white puppy like his daddy. They had a picture of the puppy setting and he looked snow white. THey had a few more pictures with the light looking amber color so couldn't see more of the dog. I asked the person if he was pure white and I was told he was. When I received him he was a cream color not snow white. I also had to drive 160 miles to pick up the puppy. I was supposed to be there Saturday at 6 pm.

  • They worry you to death!

    As a breeder, they call me almost every day sometimes more than once. When it came time to send the puppy to a new home, they require so much (pages and pages of instruction) you'd have to be a professor or a lawyer to make sense of it all much less remember it all. I would not recommend using them unless you have a lot of free time on your hands. They will run you back and forth to the vet unnecessarily at your expense. More...

    I setup an account for to sell puppies for my parents on purebred breeders. They raise dogs but don't have time to advertise the puppies. When working with purebred breeders I found that the descriptions of the puppies were generically given to the puppies and that if the description conflicted with the personality I had to change it. I setup the flights take pictures and run whenever they ask for new pictures. Basically all purebred breeders do is talk to the customer and for they double the cost of the puppy.

    I paid over $3000.00 for a Shih Tzu from Purebred breeders. I have never even heard of shaving a puppy but she was when we received her. It is 6 months later and she can't grow hair on her back. Considering what I paid this is ridiculous because we are interested in grooming and having a show dog possibly. She is AKC registered but the rule of show dogs is never to cut them especially a puppy! They did this to cover up the hair issue which in Shih Tzu's is serious. More...

    We could not have found a more perfect teacup Yorkie. We had paid and she was going to be on a plane the next day. We got a call from the actual breeder, not someone working for the site, and it turns out they lied about EVERYTHING! The puppy was not the projected 3 lb teacup we paid $1900 for, she was already 2 lbs. She was actually expected to be 6-8 lbs. They said they overfed her and put a shirt and a collar on her so she would weigh enough to fly, which is just wrong! They also lied about the size of the litter, how many litters the mother had before, the size of the mother and the... More...
  • I ended up with a Diseased Puppy

    From the time I got my puppy, she was sick. We saw 5 different vets and she had two eye operations before she was even 7 mos. old. At 9 mos. old we spent the weekend with her as she was dying. That weekend our local vet got us to a top-notch vet hospital 90 minutes away, in New England. They finally figured out she was suffering from North American Blastomycosis, a slow growing systemic fungal disease non-existant in New England. Her lungs were covered in nodules & it was in her bloodstream, nervous system & organs. The disease is prominent in Missouri, where she was bred. No doubt... More...

    avoid dealing with this company. They treat the animals like merchandise, not living things. My breeder scheduled a two pound puppy on a flight with a 7 hour layover so that rather than fly direct on a hour and a half flight the poor thing would be in a crate for almost 9 hours. Reason?
