Tips on avoiding bad breeders and scams
Always research the breeder extensively. If they’ve done business and have happy customers, you’ll find it. If they’ve done bad business, there’s a good chance you’ll find that too. Other than a basic google search about the breeder, the website Rip Off Report is also a good source to find bad breeders.
Recommended resources for researching breeders:
Get video footage of the pups and parents
If you are purchasing the dog online, be sure to get videos of the puppy. It will give you a better idea of what they look like in person. Pictures can easily be manipulated to make the puppy look better than they actually are. The same goes for the parents of the pups. Be sure to get videos of the sire and dam of the litter as well. This will give you a better idea of what you puppy will look like once they mature.
Avoiding inexperienced breeders
By avoiding inexperienced breeders you’ll have a better chance of obtaining a puppy that looks like their parents. Inexperienced breeders tend to scatter breed their dogs. Scatter breeding is when a breeder (Usually inexperienced) takes two dogs that share none of the same ancestors in the first four generations and breeds them. The result is a litter of puppies that have no consistency and look very little like the parents. An experienced breeder usually has their breedings planned out years in advance. Breeders that produce a consistent look do so by line breeding their stock for many years. Most successful breeders are able to produce consistent litters of puppies that share the same temperaments, and structure. With a quality line breeding or inbreeding, the first pick should be just as nice as the last pick.
Protect your money
Ideally, you want to visit the breeder’s yard. This way you can pay in cash and receive the puppy and papers at the same time. This also gives you the opportunity to see the dogs in person so there’s no surprises. If you are unable or unwilling to do this, you will need to pay using a credit card or paypal. In the event that this transaction is fraudulent, your credit card provider or paypal will refund the transaction.
NEVER under any circumstances pay using money gram or western union. This is the #1 way scam artists collect payments.
When it comes to buying a quality American Bully, you will definitely get what you pay for. If the dog is priced very cheap, there’s a usually a good reason for it. On average, a quality American Bully from a reputable breeder costs anywhere from 2,000.00 – 3,5000. If you see dogs priced outrageously, chances are the price is unjustified. There is no puppy worth 10,000. If one breeder can produce it, so can another. Shop around some more and you’ll find a puppy that is comparable to that over priced dog.
Be patient and wait for the right dog
Getting a new puppy is exciting and most buyers rush right into the first puppy they see. By taking the time to search many different kennels, you’ll have a better chance of find the dog that will be a permanent part of your family or breeding program.
