Hello, I post this at a time when I am very upset and tired of looking for a new puppy. It shoudn't be this hard. I guess here are the basics, I have been looking for a new dog for a long time. I looked at shelter dogs, unwanted puppymill dogs and so many others just didn't fit. Please don't hate me as I have rescused many dogs within the past, but decided on a Brussels Griffon puppy (for many, many reaons). I guess the catch is, there is only one (maybe two breeders) within my area. So, I contacted them and they had three puppies for sale. I am disabled/terminally ill and don't drive...so, it's really hard for me to go and look at dogs. The breeder sent me pics and I selected a dog, I was soooo excited and they seemed really nice people. I telephoned and that dog was now sold! I was so upset...so, I took the last pup (which I really didn't want because she has a really dark face color wise, but hey-I am just happy to get a puppy now I guess) they had and we talked he said he would let me know, but he thought they could just come by my house and show me the dog (because of my condition and not driving)...this was last night at about 6pm, I waited up for hours, all dressed and everything (p.s. I don't get dressed, because I am sick)...at 11pm no one called me or said they weren't coming. I emailed the guy really nice and just said "Hello, I am terribly sorry for my disability as I know it can be such an inconvenience sometimes. It's about 11pm and I didn't hear from you whether you would be able to bring the little Brussel's puppy by. I sincerely look forward to hearing from you." Okay, ahhh now I am crying-again. So, now I have looked online...how do I buy a puppy online out of state? Please, I wish to protect myself....has anyone ever purchased a puppy from PuppyFind.com??? I am going out (my once a month out of the house) on Tuesday and will look through all of the shelters, again...but, I just don't know what to do. Thank you so much for your help! I hope everyone is having a better weekend than I am! best wishes.
