Thank you for thinking about Powder Valley Poodles for your next pet!
Because so many people are being forced to stay at home/laid off/ no jobs/no school, the demand for companion animals has been unprecedented. We, like all of the other reputable breeders I know, have sold most or all of our puppies available plus sold all of our puppies soon to be born AND sold all of the puppies in every litter that should be born before the end of summer.. Unless the mama dogs have more puppies than we anticipate we will not have much available for the rest of the summer and into the fall. This includes the retired and retiring dogs from every breeder I know. They all have homes waiting for them.
Puppies will be very hard to find until fall and winter and the people acquiring them will only be able to do so by placing a deposit on the litters far, far in advance.
Breeder’s with poor reputations/unhealthy puppies, etc may have dogs and puppies available but be aware that you may be getting into a very bad situation with an unhealthy puppy or a scam. Scam artists are getting very good at convincing people to send money for puppies or dogs that actually do not exist. Money is sent and you never hear from them again. BE CAREFUL! Only pay a deposit with PayPal or a credit card in order to protect yourself from fraud and NEVER pay the entire price for a puppy unless you are in the presence of that puppy and know that the situation is not a scam. NEVER NEVER NEVER send a cashier’s check, wire money or pay with a debit card or bank number. These are USUALLY scams.
EVERY DAY I HEAR FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN RECENTLY SCAMMED TRYING TO BUY A PUPPY.
The scammers are getting very good at what they are doing. So — please be VERY CAUTIOUS — if someone has a puppy or a litter of desirable-breed puppies available like goldendoodles or toy/miniature poodles — BE CAREFUL! BE SUSPICIOUS! BE SAFE and do not send money unless you can protect that investment should you be dealing with fraud. Use only PayPal and Credit Cards. (NOT Debit Cards).
