I have first admit that I was naive regarding the purchasing of Jaxon. I am a very trusting person and once again it may have got the better of me. We had been communicating with the breeders of Jaxon for a year when he was born. The were very upfront with showing us a copy of each parent's pedigree and also gave us copies of them. Jaxon came home with us at 8 weeks old. When we arrived to pick him up, the breeders told us they still had not received the AKC papers but that as soon as they came they would send them on to us. About two weeks after we brought Jaxon home, I called and asked about the papers. They said they still had not received them and were going to call AKC. The next week I called again and they said there was a mistake and they had to resubmit them. At this point we have had Jaxon in our home for a month so he is at this point 12 weeks old. Four weeks later, still no papers, I called again. The breeder tells me they still don't know why they haven't got them, but that their local post office had burned down, mail was being re-routed, etc, etc. He told me to call back in two weeks if I still had not received the papers. We are now 2 weeks and 4 days after the last contact..still no papers. I have left messages at his home and cell phone. It is not unusual to hear from them several days after messages so I'm not totally convinced he's avoiding me. I'm irritated at not having the papers because he was sold as AKC, but at the same time, I'm not going to show him. My sheltie is registered but it really has meant nothing to me except the fact that she is indeed purebreed. Am I making a mountain out of a molehill???
