what a nasty way to buy an animal, what's wrong with visiting the breeder, having a nice chat, picking out the one you like, and taking it back with you (if it's ready, if not at a later date).

This is an absolute scam. And I hope you lose your money buying a pet this way.

I'm trying to work out who's lower here. The 'breeder' or the idiot buyer

MoneyGram is the second largest money transfer business in the world.

Wiki Link

Suppose your only concern is with who you are buying from.

EDIT: Can't seem to find their refund policy and US based, would not recommend.

could you not have gone to a local breeder and collected yourself?

If the ops not trolling they should be.

i spoke to the breeder on the phone and traveled 2 hours to get mine last year,i even went to the vet who they used to get him checked out
the breeder also said they would pop over to see were i lived and to make sure we had a good loving home for him, i would never buy a pet this way

Yodel are they on your list if so puppy might get left in a bin or damaged

the breeder lives 11 hours one way from us. the puppy looks cute and comes with all papers and not expensive. im just worried it can be scam... any way of checking that?

why not drive down and book a b&b then you will see the breeder face to face and make sure they are ok

If it doesn't turn up dead through delays that is.

Seriously, if your gonna do it this way, go for PayPal. Business transaction, NOT gift.

Genuinely don't think anywhere in the UK is 11 hours away. Please prove me wrong. Unless you mean 11 hour round trip.
