:thumbup:They bred dogs they can't register? Sounds like a BYB. Do they have a website?
Are the dogs OFA'd? Any titles? How much are they charging for dogs that can't be registered?
Take the puppies home at 6 weeks? No way is a good breeder going to allow that.
Bred because the male was having confidence issues? Nope...not a legitimate reason
Yes, it does seem a bit fishy to me. Run...run far...run fast...
Why don't you post where you are at, along with what you are looking for in a puppy, and maybe someone can suggest a breeder for you.
