I've been seeing ads for www.*ders.com in the Washington Post. I went to their website and on the surface they look decent. However, I am still very skeptical because they always advertise a few different breeds of puppies at a time. I went to the Better Business Bureau website and nothing came up. I've also googled the website name for other reviews and nothing.
I'm stuck on how to continue research on this group of "breeders" who on their website state that they are all family. Has anyone heard anything good or bad about them? Should I just call them and judge for myself?
The only reason I'm interested is because we are contemplating getting another puppy and like I said I always see them advertising puppies in the Wash Post.
Thanks for any advice.

Sorry I had to edit your post, but we are not permitted to promote web sites (posting = promoting) nor discuss specific breeders/kennels on the open forum. I'm sure you can find a wealth of information on the right questions to ask when trying to find a reputable rescue or breeder.
I looked at the site before deleting the link. They have several "poo", designer, mixed breeds they are selling in addition to purebreds, all negatives in my opinion.
On the flip side, they're not charging outrageous prices and say they offer a comprehensive 5 year health warranty (no specifics given though), both of which are on the plus side. Another plus is that they refuse to sell to brokers or pet stores.
