Depends, will you get a receipt/bill of sale etc?
Are they asking for cash because they will not take personal checks for the final amount? This is pretty common, the breeders usually ask for the certified check, money order, cash or in some cases paypal payments for the final amount of the purchase price. OR they will take a personal check but with the understanding that you cannot pick up your puppy until the check has cleared.
If they are not providing you with a bill of sale, I would be asking why. They may be trying to keep the cash under the table, but more importantly you need paperwork backing up the fact that you bought and paid for that dog and that you are the legal owner, in case something were to come up in the future.
Just my opinion, but thought I would throw it out there.
