Does anyone have any advice for buying a puppy online from a breeder? I have never done it before and I put a deposit on a Shorkie Puppy but now I'm getting a little nervous and feeling that I really don't know anything about the breeder. They live in MO and I'm currently in California so it's not like I can go by and see their place and their puppies. I googled them and they have ads on a bunch of websites but I don't know how to protect myself from being scammed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
