For all you looking for a puppy, here are the things to watch for.Dont buy a puppy from a puppy mill or pet shop they are one in the same. Thier are Greeders(Bad Breeders) and their are Breeders. If you are looking at a puppy look at both parents are they good examples of the breed? How many champions are in that line? How many working titles? These are very big factors in getting a health dog. Like I said before you really do get what you pay for.Going to a good breeder will cost a little more but save you more in the long run with vet bills and heartbreak. Going the cheap way is usally the door to heartack and pain. A good breeders cares about who is getting their pup, and can they take care of it.They will give you a full replacement or money back guarentee. A greeder does not do health testing ,the usually comment is "oh i have been doing this for 10-20 -30 years i know what i am doing." you hear that run! They only care about show me the money. A breeder will question you, Don't take it wrong way. They are looking for the best match for you and the puppy. A good breeder will always be willing to help you with advise on health tips, and training and encourage it. A greeder says asta-livista at the door.
Good breeders also welcome calls from you giving updates on the puppy. They *want* to see pictures, after all this is their 'extended' family. They often have contracts for you to sign, that spell out a health guarantee for the puppies they sell. But they also are willing to take back any puppy they sell at any time in it's lifetime, because they would rather you bring the puppy back than take it to the humane society where it could be euthanized.
someone who lowers the price to get a sale on a puppy is someone to NEVER buy a puppy from. also, if they are selling the puppies before 7-8 weeks old that is someone who doesn't know what they are doing.
