Beware of Dishonest Pet Sellers

Date Posted: 2000-12-22

In response to the letter - Dog Seller Had No Malicious Intent. I don't know who the seller of puppy you are talking about is, but the one that advertises in the Japan Update often, is the one I went through.

I know first hand what it is like to get what was not promised to my family in the form of a pet. I had a problem just days after I got my puppy, I was told the breeder was not taking it back.

In other words I was stuck with it. It took some time before myself and the seller worked the problem out. No, I do not have the dog any more. We got a dog from a friend PSCing. And as for the two week option to return puppy if it is less than perfect, well that is not in the contract I got. We were just "told" verbally there is a grace period. All this should be in the contract. In fact I have friends who went through the same seller as I did. Some were satisfied and one had lost her puppy two days after getting it. It died and she was not compensated or anything for the loss. This puppy obviously had a health condition before she got it.

I believe if someone is going to sell animals to anyone, whether to military or civilians, they should have the breeders checked out before selling puppies for the breeders. Or have the animalís health checked out first before selling it. There are too many people getting puppies or kittens that are either sick, are underfed or papers do not match with the dog/cat. All of this can cause problems for the animal as well as hardship for the families who buy these animals.

I suggest that anyone wanting to buy a puppy or kitten from anyone, should get information on the seller, home phone, address etc., the breeders information, very important and get a health certificate stating the condition of the animal. Most breeders in the states do this type of practice to alleviate any problems afterwards.

Not all seller/breeders are dishonest, but there are those that are. You need to watch out for yourself to make sure you are getting what you paid for. Why pay hundreds of dollars on an animal that has false papers, unhealthy or both. As the writer of the article in the last update said, "Buyer Beware!!" I know I will the next time I go and get a pet for my family.
