ADVICE FOR THOSE WANTING TO PURCHASE A PUPPY ONLINE:
- Make arrangements to meet the puppy face to face
- If the advertised price of a pedigree puppy looks too good to be true, it probably is.
- Avoid any arrangement with a stranger that asks for upfront payment via money order or wire transfer.
- If you are in doubt, seek advice from someone in the industry such as a reputable breeders association, vet or local pet shop.
