Alright guys, Hopefully some of you have heard of these two breeders. I have been communicating with them both, and they do seem very good. They do a bunch of testing, and will provide hard copies. They both breed show dogs, so they will be evaluated at 7 weeks. Never dealt with this before, but that could potentially mean we don't get a puppy if they decide to keep the flashy reverse brindle male we want, right?


The first one is out of Greensboro NC, Ebb'ne Boxers, (Traci Poole from Emser Boxers put me in touch with them.) She has a litter due in the beginning of 2017.
ebbneboxers.com


The 2nd breeder is Cachet Boxers, in Hilton Head SC. Someone here on the forum put me in touch with them. He has a litter due in 1.5 weeks. But, he said his partner in Greensboro NC has a litter planned for early 2017, however he will not give me her contact info.
Welcome to Cachet Kennels




Ebb'ne Boxers priced her pups at $2000. But the guy from Cachet Boxers priced his at $2500. He also stated that he has a partner in Greensboro (who I think is Ebb'ne Boxers) that has a litter due in Early 2017.


Only thing that bothers me about the 2nd breeder (Cachet Boxers) is that when he priced his pups they were $2500, but when I asked for his partners contact info, he stated that he would not give me that info, that I would deal directly through him for the whole process.


Seems odd if this is indeed his partner, (not sure if it is, but all signs point that way) that if she is pricing her pups at $2000...then is he jacking it up to $2500? Should I casually ask if that is indeed his partner, as someone put me in touch with her before I found him, and she already priced a dog at $2000??


Kind of puzzle here on what to do. If someone could give advice on these two breeders and the situation at hand I'd appreciate it.

First glad you found a breeder who heath tests before breeding.
They both breed show dogs, so they will be evaluated at 7 weeks. Never dealt with this before, but that could potentially mean we don't get a puppy if they decide to keep the flashy reverse brindle male we want, right? Yes , back when I was breeding mini schnauzers (under mentor) if the dog you want is "show potential" at that age, it would mean you do not get it.
My opinion of the 2nd breeder, I don't like when a breeder doesn't want to share Info on other breeders, especially a partner. Most breeders will share info on others who they feel may be of assistance to you and not get involved with the transaction. At least thats my opinion but I'm no expert on it.

Thanks for your response and help.


This rubbed me the wrong way as I see it the same as you. They should want to help, but seems like he doesn't want to and is already hiking the price. Another lady that I spoke to before put me in contact with who I believe is his partner.


She didn't have to, she did it because she knew she wouldn't be having a flashy reverse brindle, and they would. Kindness goes a long way in my book.

Sounds like you bought from BYB or something of the such? Trying to avoid this. Don't want health issues, would rather have one that health testing has been done before breeding took place.

Hey Martin, I know it sounds nuts but sometimes that's the price you pay when you get a well bred, fresh out of the oven pup! You are wonderful to rescue these amazing dogs that, through no fault of their own, have come from all kinds of negative situations. I commend you for that and may even be open to doing the same one day!:D

Martin, welcome to the world of purchasing dogs from reputable breeders!

I have nothing against those who wish to rescue but please don't knock those who do their research and support breeders who give a crap. The is a price for health and temperament.

Give me a moment and let me look at each breeder. I agree, if the second breeder will not name names, this in itself would turn me off. There is no reason for secrecy, as the buyer it is my right to know where the puppy comes from.

I'd just assume wait until January, and purchase from the 1st breeder if the 2nd wants to be dickish. I agree, I love all pups, and they all deserve a loving home. But I will not support the byb who clearly is doing it to line their pockets...plus your pup may have a very short stay with you, which I can't go through again.

I think you really should visit the breeders in person! I'm a little curious about breeders that boast what titles their dogs have won in the show ring! I've been to dog shows where there were only three Boxers in a class, and they just had to give one the blue ribbon. None of them looked very good to me, and the handlers reminded me of people who worked for the carnival. Sorry to be so blunt! There are some great breeders that belong to this group, but these Champion titles can be very deceptive. That seems like a lot of money, and I presume they are selling the dogs that are not show quality. They should be less expensive, and also come with an agreement that you will have the dog spayed or neutered by a certain age!

Sadly, some breeders of beautiful Boxers consider health and temperament second. It's well worth a visit, and they should also give you the name of their veterinarian so your vet could call before you even put down a payment. You deserve a wonderful, healthy dog.
