New puppy owner in need of answers.
Hello out their. I recently purchased a puppy from a Kennel/breeder in nh. Their name is **name removed by ADMIN**. When I went their to look at the puppy they told me that they were able to find him through another breeder in Indiana. I had previously asked if they had any german shepherd puppies available, and they then sent me a picture of my puppy, asking if I was interested. When I go there, they told me that they will often find puppies if they don't have any litters available.
This breeder's name is **Name removed by ADMIN**. While everything looked legit-papers/Health Certificate, AKC registration, etc, I kept wondering about things. AS I have never purchased a puppy from a breeder, I didn't think much of it at the time, as I had everything I thought I needed.
After doing research, I found that another person had purchased a puppy at a pet store, and we shared our dogs lineage. Apparently my puppy is related to his. While his puppy's parents ( my dogs father's parents) are not AKC registered, my puppy and his parents are. WE both assume that our puppies came from the same place, in Indiana, but from a puppy mill. Upon hearing this, it was puzzling as to how my dog and his parents are AKC registered, but his dog and his parents( the grandparents) weren't. I hope I am not confusing anyone.
I did contact the AKC upon filling out the application, as it was only one page, and I wasn't sure that it was legit. They had me fax it over, as they were confused, as well as I was if I had the correct information and application or not.. I then was sent an email that my puppy was registered with AKC, and I would be recieving his certificate in the mail. I looked up my puppies parents names on the AKC website, and they are registered under the names I was provided with.
