Alabama Toys And Teacups / puppy mill broker

1 Arab, AL, United States Review updated:

I purchased my puppy two months ago. According to the listing on the Alabama Toys and Teacups website, the female puppy was a Morkie whose dam was a Maltese who weighed 5 pounds and sire was a Yorkie who weighed 3.5 pounds and that this puppy would weigh 3.5 to 5 pounds when full grown. I was not allowed to see the puppy or her parents prior to the day I picked her up. This appeared to be a legitimate breeder who raises these puppies with love in her home. I was taken aback when I received no registration papers or vet records when I picked her up at the "storefront". I had already paid her $800 plus $88 for "handling fee???". The next day I took my puppy to my veterinarian for a check up and she weighed 3 pounds, eight ounces. He estimated her adult weight to be 16-18 pounds and said she had been misrepresented by the "breeder". She is now 4 1/2 months old and weighs 8 pounds. She has thin wiry hair and long legs. She looks nothing like a Morkie. These puppies are bought from puppy mills and resold by Merry Melton Daniels at Alabama Toys and Teacups under false pretenses. I would never knowingly support a puppy mill! Please understand, I love my puppy very much but I would never have paid $888 for a puppy of unknown lineage.

    To clarify my post...I NEVER saw my puppy's parents. My puppy was the only dog at the "Boutique" when I picked her up.

    I was not allowed to see the parents either! Merry stated that she could not allow germs to get to her puppies and make them sick.

    That is because the parents are at the puppy mills and are not the size or breed that she presents in her ad. My "3 1/2 to 5 lb" puppy now weighs 15 lbs. She buys them cheap and sells them for very high prices.

    Same here. I purchased what I was told was a teacup puddle who will weigh no more than 5 lbs full grown. He is indeed a poodle but he weighs between 6-8. Clearly this isn't a teacup. You spend so much money and expect to get what your paying for. Never again!
