I paid cash and the breeder was like...well we'd rather have a check, this is too tempting and it is only Saturday! We can't deposit it til Monday.

I paid with a personal check-don't think it was certified but can't remember-I doubt it

I prefer cash also.....we have had checks bounce in the past.
Now deposits are either cash, money order or certified bank check......final payment is cash. Contracts have "paid amount" of puppy, and are also their receipt.

VERY normal for most breeders.

They won't let you pay by check unless they know you personally.

Does this seem strange to anyone else? I guess it's just because I never carry cash on me.
We paid by check when we picked our guy up - never thought much about it.

Asking for cash (unless some unusual circumstances) doesn't sound like it is establishing a high degree of trust!

She held it until it was cleared. She did so to make sure you had the funds. Same as if she had asked for cash up front.

Whenever I've purchased any animal,I have either paid with a certified bank check or cash if they were local.I don't see anything wrong with paying cash as long as you have some proof of what you paid.

All my dogs were paid in cash... never really questioned it since that's how I've always felt comfortable paying for my pets. It's very common for breeders to prefer cash.
