I know 1 dedicated dog and puppy website... www.ePupz.co.uk , which verifies all advertisers which place a puppy/dog advert, the only site which requests Council licenses and KC Assured Breeders Certificates from the required breeders for over 13 years. I have been using ePupz as a Breeder for 13 years I have placed adverts on nearly all sitesePupz are by far the best for re homing my puppies to suited family homes, this is mainly due to the commitment made by the new owner paying the fee to gain the contact information which shows dedication to the overall expense of owning a puppy/dog.
I have to say, I have had a great experience with this site. I bought my CKCS from a hobby breeder 6 years ago who advertised on Epupz, and she has been an absolute delight. I spent a lot of (enjoyable) time going through the listings over several months - and got very good at spotting repeat phone numbers, not being offered a chance to see the puppies with the bitch, areas of the country which always seemed to have puppies, places which would deliver pups to you, repeat photos, repeat mis=spellings (sic!)...... Maybe the site could give more guidance to visitors? I agree that Epupz should CERTAINLY do more screening. But everyone should spend time researching before purchasing. All parts of the internet are being misused by crooks - just look at certain auction sites' 'genuine' items!!!! I feel more anger towards my local garden centre that has puppies for sale - an absolutely blatant, heart wrenching puppy farm outlet. Maybe Epupz should lead a campaign against puppy farming - now that would get its ratings up!!!!
