Angry K C Register certificate

Hi, Guys,
In the UK, when you buy a puppy from a breeder, it is essential to get a KC register certificated puppy. It is the only way that people can trust a puppy is healthy and from a respectable bredeer.

However, when I bought our Bang gu for 500 pounds(about 1,000 USD), the lady told me that she requested the paper to KC and is still waiting for it. And, promised me that she will send it to me.

As I am being stupid and ignorant, I trusted her and took Bang gu with me on that night. To be honest, I didn't want to come back home by myself without Bang gu on that night, just for the paper. It was a quite long journey.

Anyway, I contacted her this week, her telephone is switched off. I emailed her several times, but no reply.

I know Bang gu is very healthy and 100% Shih Tzu as I have seen the mother and the father dog.

Sometimes, I wonder I should have done the way I do my business. I felt she just betrayed my trust.

I have to disagree. I don't believe any KC registery certificate is proof of anything other than the dog being registered.

You could contact the registering body to try to file a complaint. Did you have a contract with the breeder when you bought the puppy. If the contract states you will receive registration papers, you should have a legitimate court case if you choose to pursue it.

It is sad that you can take people at face value. Good luck. I do hope you're able to receive the papers.

Nope, I agree with Katz. KC reg doesn't prove anything. Anyone can register a pup with them, doesn't mean the pup is healthy and has a good temprement.

But I do agree you are entitled to the certificate to prove she was registered. Keep trying to contact the woman, if not, proceed with the court case after some time has passed. Maybe she genuinley hasn't been able to answer her calls/emails. Was she far away from you? Perhaps you could visit?

I assume you have the breeders name and address as well as the telephonbe number if so Iwwould cxontact the Kennel Club and enquire there as to whether the breeder has registered your pup . Here is the website . I also agree that just because a pup is registered with the KC does not guarantee its health or temperament. II di hope that the breeder of your puppy has registered it and that she is reputable and there is a genuine reason for you not being able to contact her.

thanks for your help..

When I contacted KC office, they told me without the paper, I will not be able to register our Bang gu.

Stupid of me, I didn't even have a contract with her. I visited there, paid and that's it. I should have known a lot better.

She is still advertising one remain pup over the website. I really want to let other people know, if she doesn't send the certificate to me.

How are people to contact her to see the remaining pup? If she's got contact info, I'd set up an appointment to go see the other pup (annonymously) and then meet her face-to-face and see if she'll hand over the paperwork.

That is a very good idea!!!

But, I checked KC website, she is not registered breeder and her puppies are not registered. I should just give up then. That is only paper. Without paper, it doesn't mean we love Bang gu less.

Melissa, I basically agree but it would be hard to prove it. It could end up being a waste of time, money & energy.
