Girl Tamaskan Pup for Sale?

Post by Wolfheart2112 » Fri Mar 08, 2013 3:58 am

Was cruising Kijiji and came across this. The owners live in Brantford. Does anyone know if there are any Tamaskan males in that area?

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

I e-mailed the person asking about the girl pup and the parents (health, records, pedigrees etc) and I was invited to go view the puppy in question and their house on Sunday. My mum is interested in her so she's going with or without me, so Sunday evening I guess I'm going to Brantford. Any questions I should ask these people (besides the fact they are lying about their dogs pedigree?)

Yeah, ask if the puppy has all the vaccination shots and was properly dewormed. If they say yes to the shots, ask for the passport/vaccination booklet. Because 200$ is a lot for some unvaccinated mutt.

Ask to view the parents and check their temperament - you don't want to get a pup from timid or aggressive parents. Ask if parents have had their hips scored or any other health tests done. Ask what socialisation the puppy has had so far (with people, noises etc), and make sure she has been regularly wormed and her vaccs are UTD. Ask if she is microchippes.

If you check her out and find that she is fine, but for some reason do not want her, would you let me know? I've been researching the breed and longing after a Tamaskan for several years now, and finally am at the point where I am ready to adopt a dog. But, paying $2,000+ USD just for the puppy (and some negligible extras) is well out of my price range, and I refuse to support puppymillers like RPK and Ratliff. However, this is a frustrating predicament as all reputable breeders have steep prices, and I haven't been able to find any relatively local puppies not from a breeder or puppymiller. This pup's within driving range (around a 5 hour drive from where I live in Michigan) and as long as she is healthy, she seems perfect. I do not care about pedigree; I only want a friend. I understand this is under the scams section (I laughed at the impossible "fox" mix mother), but I'm really desperate at this point. And, at least they aren't trying to pass her off as a full Tamaskan and asking an absurdly high price.

It never cease to tickle my leg whenever I see a person trying to sell a crossbreed as a fox/dog hybrid, an obvious genetic impossibility!
