What is a commercial puppy importer?
What is a puppy dealer?
Wholesale breeders are classified as Class 'A' Dealers with USDA. Anyone who breeds and sells puppies for the wholesale pet market (pet stores), is a wholesale breeder.
Wholesale breeders normally sell their puppies to brokers. Brokers are classified as Class 'B' Dealers with USDA. A broker can be a breeder also, and more often than not, they are. Their primary business is buying all of the puppies that a breeder can produce. They sell the puppies to the pet shops.
Dealers outside of the United States are not regulated by the USDA. They generally purchase large amounts of puppies from puppy-mills and backyard breeders and ship them to a Import Broker here in the United States for resell.

The experiences that we have shared over the few years of the puppy import trade and its unfortunate victims, both animal and human, have been both educational and eye-opening. We hope, through this website, to prevent others from innocently following in the footsteps of the hundreds of people who suffer the heartbreak of bringing home the Wrong Puppy.
