Is Buying a Dog Online Safe? and Does This Site Look Credible?

do these puppies look good? ive never had a dog before and i really need help to see if this is a right thing to do or should i wait for a breeder by my house to breed more dogs?

That site is a puppy broker. They put you in contact with PUPPY MILLS. So no, don’t support a puppy mill. The dogs are bred only for money with total disregard for health and temperament.

    No, it is not safe. Never buy a dog from a website, find a reputable breeder for the pug or a pug rescue near you and see if they will work something out. Though if you go the breeder route, I’d suggest making your way down to the breeder to meet them, speak with them, etc. Make sure they’re really good breeders and are trying to improve the breed and actually know the breed. On the breed parent site it should give information on what to look for to find a good breeder.

    Never buy from a pet store or a website. Either get one from a reputable breeder, shelter or breed rescue.

    No. These types of puppy sale websites are full of puppy mill and BYB bred puppies and scammers.

    No, don’t do it. Not only could this be a scam but most people selling puppies on the Internet are BYB’s (Backyard breeders) or puppy mills who are just wanting some money.

    Buy from a shelter, save a life. You’ll feel good about yourself after wards.

    if you want the best dogs go to an animal shelter. i know there not purebreds but some of the best and loving dogs are mutts.
    and your saving a life.
