Quality breeders have long waiting lists for their available and planned litters. They don't need to resort to hawking their puppies through anonymous sites like PuppyFind, and few would be caught dead with a dog they've bred listed there. For some people, though, the anonymity of sites like these is ideal.What follows is an in-depth breakdown of some of the people you are likely to find via puppy for sale type classified sites.RE-SELLERS As we mentioned in our section on brokers, less than healthy dogs, which are called 'class B' dogs, are often bought in bulk purchases by re-sellers. In the past, these dogs were sold at flea markets, or through seedier pet stores. Now, many of them are sold through on line puppy for sale sites. After all, buyers can't see where the dogs are being kept, and they don't usually ask to see the parents. It's even rarer for the people using puppy classified sites to think to ask to visit the 'breeder', when shipping is so readily and eagerly offered. Sellers don't even have to keep the puppies on hand - they wait until the orders come in, and then pick up what's needed from the broker warehouse facilities. Lower over head equals greater profits, and when the complaints about sick puppies come in, along with the threats of lawsuits, they simply change 'kennel names' and ad sites, and move on to scamming a new set of victims.
PUPPY MILLS In the past, puppy mills had to sell their pets via brokers, or direct to pet stores. After all, no one who saw their facilities would ever want to bring one of those puppies home. No more worries about that, though, now that on line puppy for sale sites are here! Puppy mills can hide their squalid, over crowded, filthy conditions easily, behind glibly written ad copy that touts 'family raised pups'. Since, again, few buyers bother to even ask about visiting the buyer's location, mills can skip the middleman and get the kind of hyped price that pet stores have been able to command for years.

Online puppy classified sites have made a huge splash in the past few years. Doing a search for the term 'dog breeder' or 'puppies for sale' for almost any breed of dog turn up the same results, over and over again. Sites with names like 'PuppyFind', Pets4U', 'TerrificPets' and 'NextDayPets' all look like simple, easy to use solutions to your pet buying dilemma. Just search your breed and your area, and voila! Page after page of cute puppy pictures, all available to you with just the click of a mouse. Most of the puppies are described as coming from 'caring' breeders, the term most buyers know to look for. The clean, well laid out look of these web sites can instill a false sense of security in buyers who've come to associate well laid out web sites with well run businesses. If you can trust sites like Amazon and eBay to provide you with quality goods, why not sites like puppyfind? The difference, of course, is a crucial one - puppies are live animals, not books, and selling them requires more than just an exchange of money for goods.PET SCAMS - CAMEROON AFRICA PET SCAM One of the most disgusting new trends of the online puppy classified sites (and general classified sites) is the ease with which they can be used to perpetrate something that's been referred to as the 'Cameroon Africa Pet Scam'. In the Cameroon pet scam, 'sellers' list dozens of photos of puppies which are "free for adoption" or for sale at drastically low prices. Scammers obtain their photos by stealing them off of the websites of legitimate breeders. These 'sellers" are located in Africa - mostly in Cameroon and Nigeria. The story can vary as to why the animal is free or discounted -- the current owner is a missionary who needs to find the puppy a new home due to the terrible weather in its current location; the animal was rescued from a natural disaster and needs a good home; owner's busy work schedule, etc. etc.
