Hey, I am supposed to buy a puppy from this area today, but after checking out the area i am a little hesitant on whether or not I should be going to this area. I was presumably going to be in and out quickly, but I just want some reassurance. I would be driving in from North Jersey, oh and I would definitely go during the day as well.

The puppys coming from a private owner not a pet store, would it be smart to have them meet me outside? Maybe at the park? Is the park safe?

It is truly tragic that people refuse to educate themselves and stop supporting breeders.
Especially basement breeders, as is likely the case in this area.

Going with lots of cash?

It's not a good neighborhood but I don't know what The Bronx has to do with the advisability of a transaction such as this.I'd be more afraid of whoever you have agreed to purchase from than of the neighborhood itself.It's just not a good idea to arrange to meet someone anywhere you are unfamiliar with,especially for a cash transaction.This goes for anywhere.You should agree to meet inside in a public place where there are lots of people around,not go to someone's house or meet in or beside a park.That's just stupid.Really stupid.

Sorry I don't got lots of cash to shell out for a dog. Im a college kid man, but yeah i understand where your coming from bluedog, but around here you can actually trust people with things like that, different worlds I guess. I am not familiar with the area, thats why I'm asking here. The only experiences I've ever had in the bronx were ones that I could do without. If I don't have to go there, id rather not. But in this case, its a bit different. None the less thanks so far for the help, i hope maybe some other people have some insight as well?

You know you can adopt from municipal shelters for under $200, right? I bet you're getting a pittie and paying more than that for him/her. Save a life- browse Petfinder and adopt.

yeah, if you don't have a lot of cash to buy a dog, why don't you just adopt from a shelter?

And when you are buying from these random people, you have no idea what kind of mess of a dog you are getting. Just because there are puppies for sale has nothing to do with the quality or health of the puppy, or the condition of the mother/father.

I have to say a BIG FAT NO, don't buy the puppy. You are only encouraging these losers to keep breeding (and likely abusing) these dogs. Go to the shelter and adopt...I got a great 8 month old rotty/shepherd mix from a shelter for a whopping $60 bucks and she is the best dog I have ever had! There are lots of dogs and breeds of every age at the shelter...do the right thing.
