I like / trust these people, tbf. They’re not overcharging (£450), the puppies were a mistake, it’s a family / farm mum, they’re really keen to ensure they’re kept safe (Ie, we can fuck right off until they’re old enough to be seen), they’re only (so far) selling informally / through friends, they’ve been keen to ensure they “reserve” the puppy we expressed a vague preference for, and it’s a vet / toddler parent friend who put us on to them. Their kids live with the puppies atm. And the pictures are consistently a bit crap. Literally every box ticked so far.
