    hi. i am currently looking for a new puppy and have a question.
    is it ok to request to see the registration papers, or lineage of a pups parents?
    i was told by a breeder that that info was not available until a purchase was final.
    i declined to buy from him, but am wondering if this is normal. i cant see why this was the case.
    i would be proud to show the parents stats.
    am i missing something here?

    Hi Swain, welcome to the forum :)

    I don't think you're missing anything - that would set alarm bells ringing for me too!

    Walking away was a good call, I hope you have better luck soon.

    Totally agree with @sarah@forumHQ you can’t purchase a pup without that information. Sounds like a scam, poor pups. Well done for walking away, I would have done the same. Hope you find your perfect pup soon .
