Why purchase your bullmastiff puppy from a reputable breeder and not pet shop or on line store like "puppyspot' or 'greenfieldpuppies' ?
#1 NO breeder that loves their puppies or cares about what kind of life Puppy is going to have would ever 'wholesale' their puppies to a pet store and these new on line sites are nothing more than on line pet stores.
Because as a reputable breeder YOU take responsibility for what you create that they NEVER end up in rescue/shelter/being put down. Once wholesaled you have no idea where your puppy ends up.
#2 No reputable breeder that belongs to AKC kennel club or parent breed club is even allowed to wholesale a puppy.
#3 Pet stores (and on line pet store) put down (kill) any puppy that arrives injured. Yes this is true. There is no profit in caring for sick or injured "merchandise".
#4 Pet Stores and on line pet stores bottom line is MONEY. This is all they care about. Making a profit. That is why they offer 'financing' marketing pets to people that really can't afford them. Please think about caring for this puppy for the rest of his/her LIFE!!!
#5 I don't care what these places 'say' try to portray or empty promises or clever advertising these puppies are coming from Puppy Mills BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE would produce puppies for them. We just established no reputable caring breeder would ever wholesale a puppy. I've been in a few Puppy Mills where profit is the driving force and the horrible miserable lives these poor dogs are forced to endure while pumping out litter after litter after litter only to be PUT DOWN (bullet to the brain) or dumped at a shelter when they are no longer profitable. I'd hate to be one of these guilty humans standing before God on judgement day.
#6 More often than not a puppy purchased from these places arrives sick because they have been over exposed to large number of other puppies from Puppy Mills. It cost to give vaccinations. Cuts in on their profits.
#7 Where you are choosing to spend your money is what you are voting to support. Please do your research BEFORE your purchase. If possible visit where you want to purchase from. Meet the parents of the puppies and see for yourself how the dogs are being housed and raised. Do the dogs even know their names?? Are they happy and healthy and in love with life and their humans? Has the breeder spent the money to have health tests on Parents?
Reputable breeders have nothing to hide and are happy to have visitors. If you can't visit ask for references. You might even set up a time to face time with breeder. I've heard more horror stories then I care to repeat of folks that didn't do their research and made an impulsive decision only to regret it.
So in conclusion I would like to caution people about where pet store puppies and ON LINE Pet Store puppies are coming from: Puppy Mills And again remind you that where you are choosing to spend your $$$$ is what you are choosing to support/create more of.
