      California Boxer Breeders

  2. The California Boxer Breeder site is obviously selling puppy mill pups. Anyone who wants a puppy should either adopt or at the very least, go to a reputable breeder where you can see the mother dogs, see the litter mates and see the conditions the puppies are being raised in. Do not ever buy a dog that you have only seen on a photo on the internet or in a pet store. Be smart!

  3. JM I just put down my 13 year old cairn terrier who was brokered by Crittersville, Inc. She was purchased in a Reno, NV pet store and was very, very sick when I paid a fortune for her. A local vet testified as to her good health. Ha! With years of TLC and the help of a holistic vet, my cairn made it. I learned my lesson. Never buy from a pet store, puppy mill or other than a qualified breeder. I regret having supported a puppy mill and this broker and have learned a valuable lesson.
