Backyard Breeders vs Reputable
With the 2020-2021 pandemic, the demand for canine companions has skyrocketed. With this, we are seeing a huge increase in Backyard Breeders (BYBers) looking to capitalize on this demand. It is important that future homes recognize the difference, what to expect based on which type of breeder they choose and risks that could be potentially involved in shopping from a BYB.
It is also important to recognize the amount of scams that are preying on hopeful, eager pet homes that are looking to buy a puppy as soon as possible. These often end in heartbreaks and a big gauge to the wallet with nothing to show for them.
