Be on the lookout for bogus Boston Terrier breeders

The time has come to bring a Boston Terrier into your family and you have decided you want to deal with a Boston Terrier breeder so you know what you are getting. However, like any other industry, there are bogus Boston Terrier breeders out there who try to take advantage of unaware owners. You want to make sure you avoid a bogus Boston Terrier breeder or else you may have an unhealthy pet that could rack up huge vet bills and cause you and your family to make difficult decisions.

A sure way to distinguish fake Boston Terrier breeders from legitimate ones is to ask about free pet insurance, to use after you bring your Boston Terrier home. Legitimate breeders are offered free pet insurance to give buyers that extends for six weeks after the sale in the hope that you will extend the insurance after the six weeks. If your breeder is unwilling to give you signed proof of insurance, or if you check the insurance and it is invalid, you probably have a fake breeder.

Good breeders don’t disappear from your life as soon as the sale is over. Legitimate Boston Terrier breeders are a part of you and your dog’s life long after the purchase because it’s the breeder’s name on your dog’s documents and your reputation at stake along with your pet’s life. If you are unable to contact your breeder after purchase, or if your breeder is unable to offer you help or advice after purchase, then you are most likely dealing with a dishonest breeder.

Boston Terrier breeders are also supposed to help novice owners with health advice and even guidance on the types of food their Boston Terrier should eat. A good breeder will send you home with detailed feeding care instructions for your new pet and will also send you home with samples of their food to help you get started. Again, if the breeder disappears, he is probably not a very good breeder.

As mentioned above, you and your Boston Terrier breeder should always be in contact throughout most of your dog’s life. If your Boston Terrier gets sick, or you find that you can no longer care for and keep him, a legitimate Boston Terrier breeder will offer to take him back. A breeder succeeds based on a professional and helpful reputation, and this is just one of the services above and beyond that any legitimate breeder will offer.

Unfortunately, if you have purchased your Boston Terrier from a fake breeder, there is not much you can do beyond suing the breeder to get your money back. We recommend that you report the breeder to the American Kennel Club or the breeder’s registry he is listed on, but there really isn’t much they can do to correct your situation. Before buying a Boston Terrier from any breeder, always check the breeder with the American Kennel Club to make sure he is dealing with a legitimate business.
