resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I had a negative experience with breeder who advertises on the Puppyfind site. The breeder was was in Memphis, TN, an 11 hour drive from my home. A kennel representative, or "puppy placement counselor" offered to send the puppy with her daughter to Nashville, TN to complete the transaction. This was agreeable as it was 400 vs. 700 miles one-way. She also stated that they usually ship the dog to customers and then asked for payment through PayPal before delivery of the dog. I countered with payment through PayPal at time of delivery by use of public wifi internet. After I arrived in Nashville, there was a series of phone call attempts from "puppy placement counselor" to change the meeting location as well as the contact person. She stated that she was uncomfortable with not receiving payment before we received the dog, and I reiterated that I was not comfortable sending payment before seeing the dog. I was also concerned because the PayPal invoice did not contain a description of what I was billed for. It simply stated “GOODS”. In addition to constantly changing meeting locations, there were numerous delays, with confusing and contradictory explanations. After several more demands for payment before delivery of dog (I could not even SEE the dog until then), I finally returned home. Now I know why this breeder prefers to "ship" the puppies or deliver somewhere away from the kennel. I can imagine what she doesn't want potential customers to see. I wrote a detailed complaint to Puppyfind.com, only to receive a reply that the complaint would not be posted since I had not actually purchased a dog from the breeder. Beware!
