When it comes to buying a puppy, searching for a breeder using the search phrase “Boston Terrier Breeders Near Me” is the most searched phrase people use online.
But in recent times I’ve seen the rise of non-existent kennels positioning themselves on the first page and posing as breeders to scam you from a down payment, transport and medical fees and they are getting more skilled in how they try to deceive you.
And that begs the question, how can you prevent yourself from being scammed when you search for a “Boston Terrier breeders near me?”
What is a scam website? It typically involves a website showing adorable puppies at suspiciously low prices. They often claim to be a breeder raising “lovingly raised” Boston Terrier puppies to hook you. The prices are typically very low and oftentimes they offer shipping. Or when you get ready to buy the puppy they will say they moved and that is why they cannot see you in person but to reserve the puppy you have to send a down payment immediately.
When compared to real kennels’ websites, breeders of merit or the Boston Terrier Club of America, it’s easy to see who the real breeders are.
Key thing to NOT being scammed? 1. Knowing the breed standard and 2. Understanding what reputable breeders look like and how to verify that someone is indeed who they claim to be.
So now let’s talk a look at several breeder’s websites and compare them to what I consider to be a reputable breeder’s website should look like.
