After years of seeing genuine Chihuahua Puppies lovers be conned this page is dedicated to helping future buyers be aware of what's happening out there The information below is here to help you the buyer in the search for your new Chihuahua so do please read and digest it as it will prove very valuable and make you aware of the pitfalls involved in today's Chihuahua breeders. We would like to think that serious buyers of a Chihuahua puppy have done their home work and spent time in thinking what a commitment such a little dog will be in their life hence enabling both to enjoy each other to the fullest.
Once you have decided a Chihuahua is right for you and your family you can then begin the journey in search or your perfect companion. When you start looking you should first familiarize yourself to the mine field of adverts scattered all over the Internet on all kinds of websites advertising Chihuahua puppies for sale.
Although the Internet is a wonderful market place with an abundance of pups for sale unfortunately it does make it easy for anyone to sell Chihuahuas to anybody who clicks on their website. Hopefully you have already read through my buyer beware page highlighting the various scams circulating the Internet with non existent Chihuahua puppies that still cost the unsuspecting buyer many hundreds of pounds as they pay their money expecting a puppy to arrive the next day that they haven't even seen which obviously doesn't turn up. You may be saying i would never buy something without seeing it but this happens everyday with Internet buying on everything you can imagine which is why the scammers have realized the opening available to them.
What we want to make people aware on this page is the breeders who are actually selling pups but who are really no better than the scammers with the way they try to manipulate the public into buying one of their puppies. Everybody would love to find their perfect pup on their doorstep with the breeder living local but as we all know this rarely happens so be prepared to make sacrifices and travel to see the breeder and their dogs before making any decisions about buying their puppy.
One days traveling can mean the difference of what you really want or what you felt you had to have as the other puppies were too far away. Pups say allot about the breeder with regards their characters and how they react around strangers meaning you the customer. Breeding is meant for people who have time to help the mum develop her puppies into sociable and playful future family members so if you get the impression this hasn't taken place then give yourself time to think and maybe visit another breeder for comparison. Never buy a Chihuahua Puppies because you feel sorry for it or its the cheapest out there as you are buying for all the wrong reasons.
Over the years we have been told so many horror stories from my customers about when they have visited Chihuahua breeders and most of them have seen sense and walked away, so don't let a breeder pressure you into buying their puppy as this is definitely not in yours or the pups interest. If you feel uncomfortable or feel there is something that doesn't add up then carry on looking around its really that simple.
Be aware of breeders not advertising their land line phone number and only a mobile as this is something the foreign scammers do so ask yourself why they don't advertise their home number, maybe this gives them the option to stay hidden if they have to. Another ploy is to use photos from other websites and breeders thus showing you pictures that don't actually belong to them, always make sure the pup in the picture is the puppy you are going to see.
However in amongst all this there are many genuine dog loving breeders who are trying to make the business of buying a puppy as pleasurable as possible and are actually trying to reverse the negative publicity around at the moment with regards bad dog breeders. Please remember a breeder will not be a breeder without people buying their dogs so again don't buy because you feel sorry for their pup or you can't be bothered to travel to another breeder.
Not all of you will take my advice or even listen to your instincts but those who do will ultimately end up with the puppy they have been searching for and not regret spending their time and money on such a wonderful little creature.
A message to those of you who are morally minded who may be saying "all puppies deserve a chance in life" well of course they do but unfortunately people with no patience these are the puppies that usually end up in a re-homing center later in life so if breeders realize no one wants their bad puppies then perhaps they will invest time, money and hard work to produce only true sociable and healthy family pets.
Chihuahua World Puppies all possess the temperament our puppies are famous for. You will not be forgotten about after buying one of my puppies, this is one of the reasons we created The Chihuahua Club. Club Application
