Re: Pet store puppy

Welcome to the forum.

I am concerned that if you didn't even know about pet store puppies than chances are you didn't really research the breed much either and have simply bought your pup based on how cute they looked in the store.

Either way you now have this forum to use and use it I hope you do!.

Please understand the breed so that your pup doesn't just end up being re-homed. You have a crazy ride ahead of you. Fingers crossed the puppy mill hasn't given any bad genetic problems to your pup.

I now more than ever hope you will research as much as possible. You are lucky at the moment if you aren't experiencing some of the more common issues but trust me a puppy is a puppy and soon your pup will have puppy problems. They all do it is part of pups being pups.

Best of luck and ask us as many questions as you require.

Well, with everything being said. I think you should pass the word on and not buy from this Breeder...

That is where Charlie come from. Since Charlie was at the pet store for 7 weeks the price was $699. Plus all his shots are done and we got a free visit to the local vet. I have to resize the picture and i will put them up.

On a side note... We were at the pet store to price out food, toys, etc.. We know a breeder for goldens and was going to get one in April. But that day we came home with him.

Re: Pet store puppy

Most get there puppies directly from the breeder.
Is it right, or wrong, to get a puppy from a pet store? My gut says wrong, but you're past that point so it doesn't matter any longer. All that matters is helping the both of you.
Love attention, affection, and predictable discipline are the keys to your puppy thriving. Make him your best friend, and he yours. Make his day a routine he can predict and he will blossom, No matter where you bought him.

Welcome to the Forum.

Re: Pet store puppy

Even though I too believe that pet stores shouldn't carry puppies and breeders who give their puppies to pet stores are wrong to do so, I'm happy that you have the puppy now because the thought of that cute face sitting in a glass box makes me so sad.

Congrats on your new addition

Re: Pet store puppy

Did you buy the puppy from "Petland"? They are known to sell puppies from mills... :'(

I truly hope your puppy grows up healthy and free from any genetic issues. Please have a vet (not one recommended by the pet store, but one you've researched and picked yourself) check him THOROUGHLY for internal parasites, kennel cough, ear mites, etc. I would have them do a complete blood and fecal test to make absolutely sure he is healthy. Puppies from mills tend to have all sorts of health problems that may not show up right away.
