Breeders overstating red flag or good sign?
 
If breeders overstate is that a red flag? For ex, asking ppl their perspectives or seem to be looking for references etc. It doesn't always seem to be the case though if it is. Why don't people like overstatements? They can be true or false depends though I think.

How can an overstatement be true? By definition it is a false statement due to inflation of facts.

Can you give some examples? I have no idea what this means.

I am not quite sure I understand the question either.

Oh, good, glad I am not alone.

i think what they mean is for example if a breeder says a puppy fearless and likes cats, then you get it home and its scarred of everything and hates your cat. behaviors change in a new environment so maybe it was fearless while living with the breeder and liked their cat. i don't really thing that's a red flag. you can't tell at 6 weeks how a dogs personality is going to be and stay.

that's the only thing i can think of. what else can they really overstate? if the color or size is other than the breeder stated, that's a flat out lie.

maybe a breeder tells people all the puppies they sell grow real big and you check with some other people that used that breeder and their dogs never grew past 50lbs. that could be an overstatement and would be a red flag for me.

Is it possible you are talking about testimonials? Like asking for a good review for their website?

I'm lost too...

Yes, the breeder is constantly looking for good reviews. Wants the desire to feel amazing at what they do.
