Putting down a deposit on a puppy that's not even been conceived yet!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Is that dumb!!? This is a very very good breeder. Her pups go fast and I want to make sure I get one. They estimate she will get pregnant in February and give birth in April. So I'm going down there tomorrow to put a deposit down.

Eeek I'm so excited and nervous st the same time!!!

Do you get your deposit back if she doesn't get pregnant or if you end up not liking any of the pups? Will she reserve them until you pick out the one you like best?

Absolutely not true at all.

Dogs live as long as dogs live.  Some live for 2 years and get cancer others live a healthy life until they die of natural causes at 17. 

This happens in mutts and purebreds alike. 

Anyone who actually believes what you wrote is kinda stupid.

With dogs being killed everyday, it really kills me that people still go to breeders!!! Why are mutts so evil! They are the most loving, caring dogs! They will be THE BEST dog you will ever have! It is SICK what people pay for a dog & why breeders are even in business! AKC dogs are usually the most sickly & usually don't even live as long!!!

Thank you.

Yes there is a contract I must sign. It's lengthy too. I would never support a puppy mill or bad breeder.

Quoting Acid:

I also rescue.

The OP isn't buying a dog from a shelter, or a backyard breeder.   Obviously, if the breeder has a waiting list, she doesn't just sell her dogs to anyone and will have, in a contract, that hte puppy or dog must be returned to her.

I love shelter dogs...but, I wanted a certain breed, I did my homework, I researched and waited four years before I got my dog.

Not all people who buy dogs are assholes.

Yes it's dumb. I really hate seeing people paying someone to bring animals into this world when people like me spend hundreds of hours a week trying to keep animals from being put down in a shelter.
Your overpriced puppy isn't going to be any better than the $20 puppies in the animal shelter.

My Boston is from an owner who could no longer take care of him and also AKC....best dog I have ever had. He is actually my husband's certified therapy dog. I see nothing wrong with a family selecting the breed that is best for their family and doing their research on how to obtain such a pet.

We put a deposit down before one litter but requested and certain color and sex and so did several others so we ended up having to wait for another litter after that....so in other words no its not dumb at all LOL

Here it costs over $200 to adopt a dog.

This!

Quoting Peytonsmom6308:

If your breeder is good and she's breeding for good physical qualities and temperament them it is totally worth it.
