I have a question, I'm new to the pet world and picked up our first Poodle/Dox for my sons' three year birthday yesterday. Paid the individual and took the puppy home, no problems. One thing that was consistent during our visit was the reiterating by the owner how she runs a day care now and couldn't keep the puppy and how her children were extremely upset. However, now I see on her myspace page, she is listing two new puppies she must find homes for. My question is this, does an individual need some sort of state or city permit to resell animals from shelters? I only ask this cause here in North Charleston, SC, I found a website of a animal rescue near this ladies house that required payment of $35 to adopt, while I paid her $135. While I don't mind paying the money; however, if she was untruthful on how she obtained the puppy, I question if the puppy is completly healthy. Thanks all for your help.
