I gave my puppy ruble back to the breeder. he was a sickly puppy and went down hill very quickly being away from his mum too early. Lost my money but i would rather that then him die.

I will not get another dog till next year now. March time i think. And im planning on getting a whippet boy. As they have nice temps and are nice and quite in the household etc if given the right exercise.

i saw this advert from a breeders and think they look ok. In the proccess of asking when they next expect puppys. Hoping early next year.

Would you buy a puppy from these people? From this advert alone, would you consider going to see them?

Absolutely NOT. This isn't even a breeder's website, it's a pup$forbucks ad site, these breeders/greeders main emphasis on the parents are their colors and they can't even be assed to spell those correctly.

I may be completely wrong and my disclaimer is I have never purchased a dog from a breeder. But I'd really stay away from a all breed classified site.

After your last experience.. you should be vetting new breeders long and hard. That site is a puppy peddler site. It's akin to nextdaypets and other skeeze. If you want a whippet.. start looking for breeders who do things with their dogs..

Try looking at the National Breed Clubs website... Should be Whippet Club of America or something similar. Looking at puppy finder sites and google isn't going to help you.

This. And if what the advert says is true, these people are just breeding their pets. They're not titling their dogs or competing in anything and they're not health testing. Backyard breeders,for sure!

As stated above, start at the national breed club to at least give you a head start. When I was searching for Chow breeders before we got Aesop, that's how I started. I weeded out from there. (not every breeder with a listing there is good, of course,....I used common sense and additional research to weed out those who did not produce Chows according to what I was looking for)

This is what the ad says:

"We are members of the Kennel club assured breeder scheme and have been breeding for several years, we take pride in how we keep our whippets and they are a much loved family pets
17 Weeks old Beautifull healthy playfull puppies, nice forward going and full of mischief
Born and raised in a family home with children cats and dogs, fully wormed, Micro chipped, KC registered, 4 weeks free insurance plus puppy food pack, the puppies are in excelent condition with nice shinny coats, bright eyes, very alert,
Both parents her for you to see
Mum is a Brindel working whippet and dad is a Black working whippet, Any questions please get in touch."

What about this makes one jump to the conclusion that this is a horrible breeder? I honestly can't say because it's limited info but I think this breeder could be worth looking into more.

You're in the UK.

Use the champdogs website to look for a good breeder, its geared towards ethical breeders who health test etc. If you let me know where you are, ill look on there for you too.

they cant spell the coat pattern. that doesnt make them horrible but it would make me skip them.

IME, reputable breeders are usually quick to mention their dogs titles, good temperaments, and health. Reputable breeders also don't usually advertise online.

In my experience, reputable breeders poop rainbows and unicorns. LOL.

ETA: That is to say, they're much romanticized. Frankly, I don't have enough info from the ad. They certainly seem like they care about their dogs. I'd be concerned about appropriate health clearances.

There's a really interesting blog on Ruffly Speaking about why breeders SHOULD advertise, and why the idea that advertising puppies is dirty and disreputable hurts breeders instead of helping them.

Totally agree.

I have found some of my best pet homes through Puppyfinder and NextDay Pets. Really great homes that I wouldn't have found without advertising who have dogs they adore. Dogs they would not have found without me advertising.
