Thank you for visiting our pages. We would love it if you would Add to this guestbook we are keeping! What We Think About Puppyfind.com

WARNING WARNING WARNING

PUPPYFIND.COM AND THEIR AFFILIATES ARE AWARE THAT THE MAJORITY OF THERE PUPPY SELLERS ARE OVERSEAS PUPPY MILLS.

THEIR CLIENT AT LAZY A FARMS IS SENDING OUT PICTURES OF MY DOGS AS BEING THE PARENTS OF THE POODLE PUPPIES THEY SELL.

THE LATEST FRAUD SCAM ON THEIR SITE IS BEING DONE BY Nikki Brattin CALLING HER BUSINESS AS LAZY A FARMS. HER PHONE NUMBER IS 417-342-3388 HER IP ADDRESS IS 72.14.70.32 One of her email addresses lazyafarms@leru.net

PUPPYFIND.COM DOES NOT ASK FOR ANY OTHER INFORMATION FROM THEIR SELLERS OTHER THAN A EMAIL ADDRESS AND SOME MONEY.
THEY ALSO OWN THE ISP THAT THEY ARE DOING BUSINESS ON WITH THE FRAUDULENT SELLERS.

PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU INTEND TO BUY A DOG FROM A BREEDER THAT IS LISTED ON PUPPYFIND.COM
ALSO IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT LISTING WITH THEM YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER YOUR REPUTATION.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED AT THIS SITE OR KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN SCAMMED PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT THE PAWS ORGANIZATION OR MYSELF.

Puppyfind.com is an online service which takes a financial cut for connecting puppy sellers with people that want to buy dogs. Their homepage says “1,000s of Puppies for Sale… Shipped nationwide!” If that doesn’t make you wonder about their service, then you will when you learn that they don’t even pre-qualify the people or dogs who post to their site. They only review a poster or dog if there have been complaints. Technically this isn’t against that law, but if you ask us, we think it’s awfully disrespectful to the dogs to treat them as cargo and the buyers to not pre-qualify the sellers before letting them use their service. It is well documented there is a GIANT problem of unethical breeding of dogs and this service, by not pre-qualifiying the people they work with, is, we think, a big mistake.

We spoke with Puppyfind.com in the past and they justified their practice by claiming “well, so may people post dogs a day we couldn’t possibly pre-review them.” I don’t think I need to say what we think is wrong with that. Especially now that they’ve been in business for a couple years they should be improving their quality control, not standing by old excuses.

Recently there has been a rash of tiny breeds posted to puppyfind by a scammer pretending they are for sale. Thanks for everyone to writing in to them. We have let them know how we feel about this too. My gut feeling is that this was all the work of one desperate, nefarious person who thinks that some how people will fall for their pathetic scam. When anything happens out of the blue to this degree it’s almost always just one person or people working together. Puppyfind will eventually ban this user (or users) and they will slink away. So I do not expect some continuing photo theft as this one person will realize how stupid they were and it will stop.

As far as I know, when this happens, Puppyfind, chooses not to press criminal charges, which I also think I don’t need to state how we feel, even though they have clear proof of attempted scams.

I do know Thumbelins's is for the love of dog. I can only imagine what Puppyfind is for the love of.

In the future if you see or hear of misappropriated photos being used to sell dogs on PuppyFind please contact them immediately with as much proof and evidence as you have. In the end they are motivated to remove false entries and the more people they hear from the more likely they are to do it sooner than later. It is our wish they will reconsider their policies of letting people post puppies until they hear of a problem and take a more proactive stance in ensuring the validity of the poster and ethical quality of the breeders they work with. (I am recieving comments from my visitors and they are posted below)

Hi I know you don't know me but I been watching your website for about a year, I been on it enough to recognize you poodles, anyway I was on puppyfind.com looking for a new female poodle, and I came across and add for a female teacup poodle for sale that i was interested in well , I contacted them to find out more about her and they sent me pictures of what they said was her parents well right away I recognized them from your web site, so I thought I better let you know about this,
I apologize if this was an add you approved of or new about but it seemed like a scam to me because of the location difference so I thought you should know about it.
anyway her is a link to the add on puppyfind and here are the pictures they sent me,

BEWARE of breeder NANCY McIntosh of Freedom Poodles who sells on PuppyFind.com: Below is the record of her once owning Freedom Poodles Website:

I have some thoughts and info I would like to share with your visitors. I have come accross so many websites like Nancy McIntosh at "Freedom poodles" I bought my first poodle from her. I should have known by her putrid attitude towards other breeders that she wasn't a professional. She said I was buying a teacup and the dog is 11 inches. That is a miniature. Although I love my Micky very much, I still want a real teacup.. Again thanks for your wonderful website. Lola, I looked at her site because she inquired about buying from me. I saw the attitude she displayed on her site and told her that was not the kind of home I wanted any of my babies to go to. She wasn't stable enough to handle that and has smeared her site with more smutt. I am glad that you kept Micky.

I just wanted to comment on your website and your poodles. It is obvious that you love your dogs and they are so tiny and cute that I want one to love. I live in Tomah, Wisconsin and there are no real teacup breeders here. I will wait for you next litters. I just hope you get a female that lookslike Bisquit.
Pat Freedom email Tomah Wisconsin on March 15 2006.

I love your poodles. They are absolutely preciious! I grew up with toy poodles. The last 12 years, I had a Shi-Tzu. She died last summer and I'm thinking of getting another toy poodle. I loved your website. I live in Las Vegas.

Thumbelina, I just love your website! I have been searching for a teacup poodle with correct conformation for a long time. I sent you a email but wanted to sign your guestbook.. Your site is very informational.

I just love the phantom poodles! Not all dogs can be a show dog. Just because a poodle happens to be a phantom doesn't mean it doesn't have good conformation.. Please call me if you get a phantom puppy out of Gwen.
Linda Miller lmal@gbis.com Carson City, NV - USA Saturday, March 26, 2005 at 18:54:37
You have the breed standard posted on your website saying that Phantom or Parti-colored Poodles are not accepted by the breed standard, yet you are breeding them? Why?
Donna bennie1129@aol.com Saturday, March 26, 2005 at 02:54:37 (Thumbelina replies) Dear Donna, . I do not breed Parti poodles. The Phantoms are very beautiful and can be registered with the AKC. If you have ever had a AKC registered poodle you might have noticed the color choices boxes on the form. It gives you a option to choose the 2 colors if they happen to be. Any color other than sold is banned from the conformation show ring. HOWEVER, a solid colored puppy whose sire or dam happens to be from a Phantom or Parti is eligible to compete. I hope I have answered your question. Best Regards and thank you for visiting our site.
I have five poodles, two are teacup and I love my dogs so much. They are so smart. I really enjoyed your website and would recommend it.

I love your very informative web site. I have enjoyed reading all the information you so graciously put on here for everyone to use. I received an AKC 2 1/2 lb female red tiny toy for Christmas this year, and your information really helped to get her off to a good start with her grooming. At 14 weeks old, she already doesn't mind the clippers and the brushing. I spent 14 days at home bonding with her, potty training, and she is so smart. Thank you so much for all your great information. Just wanted you to know we appreciate web sites like yours.

Im looking to get my mom a new teacup poodle, Jo Jo the one she has now is going blind & she is already deaf it wont be long before she is gone & my mom will be so heart broken. I have grown up with poodles ALL my life that is all my mom has had & at one time she use to breed them. I have been looking for adoption centers for poodles cause I/she really cant afford to buy one & Jo Jo was adopted, so I have had so so luck. I love your website and Ill make sure to save it for my mom and also send her the address. My mom's e-mail is vicki@daktel.com and her name is vicki.

Your website was quite helpful. I have a toy poodle, Hannah Rose she is about 10inches and weigh about 4lb. She is a very picky eater. We have tried at least 10 different brands of food. She eats about 1/4 cup a day. Is that enough?
