I know many of you already know this but here's another reminder from experience. When going to see a puppy always ask to see the mother and get pedigree papers if it's claimed to be a pedigree. If you can't see the mother WALK AWAY. We were naive in 2013 and saw a pocket Beagle advertised on Gumtree for £399. I can't believe the prices now, saw Beagle pups today at 5 grand. Took my daughter, 18, who fell in love with the black, brown and tan one that came to her first. Others were black and white. I thought we were just looking but wife got the cash out and she was ours. Had to call at PAH on the way home for stuff! No papers, he'd post them on LOL but never did, no mother, she was "out a walk with my wife" Alarm bells should have rung but as I say we knew very little about dogs and were naive. We were lucky as Evie's lovely and vet says he's pretty sure she's a full pedigree. She had worms but has otherwise been healthy. Seller had an Irish accent so maybe they were from an Irish puppy farm. My dad was Irish so recognised it and had heard of Irish puppy farms but still didn't put two and 2 together. Our daughter Rachel, only child, passed away in 2018 aged just 22 from sudden adult death syndrome and it breaks our heart that she had to leave Evie. We find the exercise hard sometimes but have to do it for her sake.
