Boston Terrier breeders and how to spot fakes

When you are ready to invest in a Boston Terrier for your family, and you intend to buy one from a Boston Terrier breeder, you need to be sure that you are dealing with a real dog breeder and not a fake trying to scam you. If you buy from a fake breeder you could be forced to put your family through expensive vet bills and tough decisions because you were sold an unhealthy pet by a fake breeder.

A sure way to spot a out the fake Boston Terrier breeder from the legitimate ones is to ask about free pet insurance, for use after you bring your Boston Terrier home. Legitimate breeders are offered free pet insurance to give to buyers that extends for six weeks after the sale in the hopes that you will extend the insurance after the six weeks is up. If you breeder is not willing to give you signed proof of insurance, or if you check out the insurance and it is not valid, you probably have a fake breeder.

Your relationship, and contact, with your Boston Terrier breeder is an ongoing thing that does not stop just because you took the dog home. A legitimate breeder will be available for any new Boston Terrier owner to answer questions and offer any advice you may need. If you are having a hard time getting your breeder on the phone, or they won't answer any questions for you, then the chances are you have a fake breeder.

Your breeder's name is on your dog's papers and so is your breeder's reputation and an honest breeder cannot afford a bad reputation. A good breeder will help first time dog owners with detailed instructions about the feeding and care of your new pet and the legitimate breeder will also send home samples of the kinds of food you should be feeding your Boston Terrier as well.

There is nothing more important to your breeder for his business than his reputation for providing quality animals and being as professional as possible.

You should always be able to stay in touch with a legitimate breeder and if you find that you cannot keep your pet later in its life then a good breeder will take the dog back, but without giving you a refund for your purchase price. At least you will know that the Boston Terrier will be taken care of. A fake breeder will not offer this service.

A recognized breeder registry like the American Kennel Club is a standard by which all legitimate breeders adhere to and you should always buy your Boston Terriers only from those breeders in good standing with a breeder registry.

But aside from suing there is not much you can do and that is why you should never buy a Boston Terrier from a breeder that is not in good standing with the American Kennel Club.
