    Some months ago there was in the newspaper this add of a Chihuahua breeder.
    On the add it said show quality puppies and that the parents had championship pedigree, so I called and the conversation was like this:


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Me: Hello, I want to know about the chihuahuas.

    Guy: Yes! I have a litter now, what gender do you want?

    Me: I'm interested in a male pup, what kind of titles the parents have?

    Guy: there's a long coat white male avalible

    Me again: so wish titles the parents have?

    Guy: *laughts* but yo don't want the puppy for show right?

    Me: YES

    Guy: OH!!.... well, in the add it says the puppies have pedigree, but actully ONLY the mother has it, the father don't bu he is purebreed!

    You know...... you have two options: if you want the puppy for show, then I can write you a guarantee that is goin to be purebreed when it grows up!!! and I can write that he is purebreed in a paper so he can enter in a show.

    Or..... you can wait, in two months when another litter that the both parents have pedrigree and the puppies can have one.

    But the registrering pedigree prosees is very looooong and you are goin to have to wait a lot to get it after the puppy is checked.

    Me: :yikes: ( I had to contain my horror and then I tried to slip) ok then... I call you later.


    Guy: Ok, thanks.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Wow, this guy sure belives people are stuped, he really thinks I'm goin to go to a dog show with the puppy and a piece of paper that says "he's a pure breed chihuahua let him in" :confused:

    This is one of the most shocking things I have heard about show quality dogs O-o

    of course the guy believes people are that stupid, cause there sure is a lot of them out there that will fall for it. Stupid or naive doesn't really matter, the end result is the same

    You are right, is stuped or naive. ;)

    Sigh, I hate people that tries to trick people with this dirty things..
    At least he admits that the puppies didn't have it.

    I know of a case that a person purshased a dog that was sold as pedigreed when it they don't give the papers and just said "take it to the vet and is goin to give you the pedigree"

    The person didn't had an idea of what was a pedigree.

    Sadly many seller just said loud pedigree to try to pass a dog as for "supreme quality" and sell it for a lot of $$

    When even if the dog has it it dosen't mean is show quality, the most important thing is what it says on it.

    An when a person is goin to purshase something is to try to get information about what is getting. :)

    I used to call Golden ads and asked questions .... I'd say 98% didn't know what OFA was and over 50% had bitches under a year !
