So here is the newspaper Ad my coworker saw in the paper & brought in for me:
Basenjis for sale. AKC
2 male, 2 female Barkless
Non-shedding. 8 wks old
:eek: Now maybe it's just me but I am a bit worried that someone in the county in which I live is putting basenji puppies in the newspaper. The ad fell right above black lab puppies for sale & beagles. Does anyone who is familiar with breeders know of a breeder in Brevard county Florida who may advertise in this manner?
I have thought about calling the number & asking this person if maybe we could have our pups meet (since again she lives in the same county as me). On the other hand, I have considered calling this person & asking questions about the breed to kind of feel them out & see if they are a shady BYB breeder or something…
I guess it makes me hesitant when the ad says "non-shedding" because I can tell you right now that Dallas sheds & he's only 10 weeks old! & it says "barkless" because although they may not "bark" they are not mute by any means. I think their "screaming" is actually worse than barking! :p
Plus this is totally NOT a breed that someone should buy out of a newspaper ad without research & knowing what you're getting into. If a breeder is willing to sell through newspaper ads then that means they probably aren't really screening potential buyers right? Inputs anyone?
