    Thumbs down IM CRUSHED!!!!!!

    So I thought I finally found the right puppy & I have been contacting the breeder for awhile asking questions. It seemed like it was going smooth. UNTIL the main concern that I had was that in one photo of the puppy I could see a scab, so I asked the breeder how the pup got it. Immediately you can tell the whole vibe changed. After that I got a quick to the point email, I replied & never heard from them again. Now I find out the puppy has been sold to another family.



    Ugh.... I really thought he was the one, I even took off this tues to go pick him up, how disappointed I feel!!!

    How heartbreaking for you. Did you put a deposit? (I hope not) There are many here who have had a few broken hearts in their search for the "perfect" baby. Be strong and just know it was for the best. Seems to me if the breeder acted that way, they are a shady one so you are by far better off. Keep researching and do not be afraid to ask questions. A good breeder should and would not be turned off by having to answer.

    No I did not put any deposit, after all the horror stories I've heard about I refuse to put any money down until I see the pup in person

    GOOD JOB! Imagine if you had? You will find the one you are meant to have. When you do, you will love that baby even more for having waited for him/her.

    I am so sorry. Very suspect that the breeder got that short once you asked that question. Pup is probably not even sold. They probably got scared to sell to you. Your baby is out there.

    @Dalia55 , I am so sorry for you, but Im also happy because this was certainly not a good breeder. Please try not to get your puppy online. The best way to get the puppy of your dreams is to see him and his parents and brothers in person. A good breeder will be bombarding you with questions because they want the very best forever homes for their puppies. I wish you good luck. (also english bulldogs cant travel via airplane, just so you know)

    Yes I know it happened for a reason, its just disappointing because I had already hyped myself up with the idea of him being the one. But yes I am glad I researched enough to know not to put any $ or buy a dog without asking everything you need to & meeting the puppy along with his family. Hopefully my next thread in this forum will be GOOD NEWS!

    Any good breeder would have been happy to ask any questions about the scab you saw on the picture!! This breeder is obviously either hiding something or does not care about their bulldogs!! Or both!! Think of this as a lucky escape from a possibly bad situation!!

    @Dalia55 Where are you located??

    I'm a believer in "things happen for a reason." I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. I agree that if the breeder got that way because you asked a question about the puppy you were interested in is not a reputable breeder - something seems fishy to me. I drove 10 hours round trip to get Wilson and we just drove 28 hours round trip two weeks ago to get Emma. It's hard when you get attached to a particular one. I'll be looking for the "Good News" post.

    That is tough on you when you had your hopes up, but it sounds like you dodged a bullet with that breeder!
