    Default Another reason to buy in person, not online.

    http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/2011/08/m...-rescue-group/

    This woman runs one of the worst kennels in MO, and now poses online as a 'rescue', selling dogs from her own filthy operation and claiming they're from 'puppy mills' (her own) Click here to enlarge ANYONE can make a website look good and legit. If you aren't actually going to see where your dog or pup came from, you never know if you are supporting something like this. These commercial breeders are getting more and more crafty as places to sell their dogs are drying up. This is her site: http://rescueafrenchbulldog.com/ Looks legit, huh?

    At the very least, have a friend go check out where your online dog comes from, and beware if it's from MO, KS, OK, AK, FL, or PA. All notorious puppy mill states that supply pet store chains across the country.

    To add to this... if in Canada, please watch for Quebec. Although, personally, I think half the experience of working with a reputable breeder is meeting the parents, litter and bonding with a puppy. Not sure what the allure of online shopping is in the first place!

    Happy to say one of our biggest pet stores in our area has announced they won't sell puppies as of this September. http://telegraphjournal.canadaeast.c...rticle/1433691 Rescue dogs only! Click here to enlarge

    A lot of people shop online if they live waayyy out in the middle of nowhere. Others simply do a search for "boston terrier puppies" and that often brings up all sorts of unsavory places to buy from. They are excited about the convenience and buy because they don't know any better.

    Nowadays the technology is too far so, You can buy anything online only when you get the https connected page because this is the "https" shows that data is in encrypted form and can't be revel by the other computer.

    We recently came across a "rescue" on adoptapet.com most of the dogs are rescue but there was a Buggle on there listed as a rescue from "pet rescue" i was suspicious but wanted the puppy so I ignored my gut and called. Well things didnt work out for us to go look right away so I did more research and came across the puppies on numerous sites most listing the breeder as owner. The way she worded things when speaking to my husband spoke to me as her being a breeder and not a rescue but coming across the additional sites with ads kinda firmed up that it was a non existant rescue. I guess this is a new way to sell mixed breed puppies and ask for a higher price to cover the "rescue" expense. Buyer definitely beware.

    I would like to add that a true rescue will be a .org site meaning they are a nonprofit. A .com site means they for profit and a tax paying business.

    The Adoptapet.com was a link from Petsmart and many were ligitimate shelters with standard adoption processes. I agree that direct sites would typically have a .org but that site lists for multiple agencies and is supposed to host only "Rescues"
