A few days ago I asked a question in preparation for my new puppy and was advised by some very wise people that the situation did not sound right, so I got my deposit back and walked away from the deal. I found another breeder and based on my recent experience, knew what questions I should ask and what answers I should be looking for. This led me to a new puppy from a breeder that I feel totally comfortable with. My new little boy will be home in 20 days and I can't wait! He's an 11 wk old boy with a lot of energy and comes from a good family situation and pedigree, something that I've learned to look for. This breeder told me what he breeds for and which dogs he'll pair together based on which characteristics he's trying to suppress or bring out. I'm really glad I found this board and really feel indebted to a few great people (you know who you are) for your assistance.
hey Raven... TOTALLy worth it DUDE..... he's so darn cute
I think you are such a cool example of someone that comes to TP, asks some really good questions looking for feed back, AND LISTENS!!!!!!! There really are a great group of folks on here willing to help those that are sincerely trying to get some feed back and info, not just asking to see their own typing LOLOL
Can't wait for the big day, post pictures and again, congratulations.

Shiny, thank you! Finding the right breeder made all the difference in the world. When I went to see the first puppy, there was no connection. I held her for over an hour while she slept (and her siblings were running around frolicking.) That bothered me a lot. Not to mention that the "breeder's" youngest child kept picking the puppy up and carrying her around everywhere. I was told she does that all day; it was no wonder the poor thing was tired. The breeder couldn't tell me anything about the mother, father (except that they were beautiful, which I could see for myself.) All these things became very apparent after talking to a few people on here. It just didn't feel right, so I walked away and did my homework.
Raven don't mind Savannah, she's not too good when it comes to gender. When she has to sign a form that says to specify whether your're, Sex- Male or Female, she writes sometimes. Congratulations on your little man, he's a beautiful brindle, and hope you're very happy with him.
