Hi! On the conversation of buying a puppy, I always read/hear that you should never buy a puppy sight unseen, particularly over the internet, from people and dams/sires you've never met. On 20/20 there's been shows about dogs arriving, hopes are high, and then something is wrong, and even with a guarantee, you've already become attached to to the dog. And it seems anyone can make a flashy website.. and most of the internet sellers don't want you to come to their homes (due to germs). Then the whole idea of paying a deposit for a dog you've never seen. I understand from what I've seen on the net that this how pups are being sold. Is this how these dogs are purchased/sold due to it being a "seller's market" and it is just what people have to do? Or, are most people accepting this as a way of buying puppies, contrary to "what the books say?" Please don't take offense, I am just trying to understand. I have one labradoodle I bought "the old fashioned way", going to the breeders' home, playing with all the puppies, and making my pick. However, I want another...and can not see myself buying a pup any other way.
