Did they have adult dogs there? They may have been brokers which would mean that Teddy and Chico aren't related at all.
Denise, you should trace Chico's background, too. Then you would know for sure if they are related.

I'm not positively sure about that... but I'm thinking it could be correct.....Originally posted by Kallie/Catcher's Mom+Mar 25 2005, 02:28 PM-->
Ahhhhhh, so they only need to be USDA approved if they themselves sell to pet stores not if they are the ones selling from a USDA broker.
I am really interested in what the results will be on where Teddy was raised...and will save my comments until I get them.
Animal Brokers--Anyone who deals in regulated animals but does not take physical possession must be licensed. If you meet this definition of a broker, you are exempt from certain regulations imposed on dealers who handle animals, but you need the same type of license. Annual license fees are based on income from commissions and brokerage fees (with no deductions).[/B]
Direct Sales--Anyone who sells domestic pets directly to pet owners is exempt, regardless of sales volume. Such sales can be made in person or by mail.[/B]
Hobby Breeders--Small-scale breeders with gross sales under $500 per year are exempt, as long as these sales do not include wild or exotic animals, dogs, or cats. If you own no more than three breeding female dogs or cats and sell the offspring, into the pet channels only, you are exempt.[/B]
Oops! KC's Mom already posted this.Retail Pet Stores--Anyone whose entire business consists of selling domestic animals to pet owners is exempt. However, if as part of your business you exhibit animals, you may have to be licensed as an exhibitor.
For example, you need an exhibitor's license if you take animals outside the store for teaching or promotion or if you set up a petting display. You must be licensed as a dealer if you sell wild or exotic animals, or if you sell regulated animals to other retailers, research institutions, exhibitors, or other animal dealers. You need to be licensed as an exhibitor if you display a monkey or other wild animal inside the store.
Exemptions for retail pet stores are on an all-or-nothing basis. If you qualify for exemption, none of your business is regulated or inspected. If you do not qualify, you are a full-fledged dealer, and all your regulated animals are inspected.[/B]
