We are pleased to refer responsible breeders.
We urge you to always visit a breeder before finalizing your puppy purchase. If for any reason your “gut” tells you something is “not right” go home…anyone can have a fancy web site. Its the home where they are born and raised that should be clean and tidy. Puppies are a messy lot, however, they should be happy and well socialized and their area clean with fresh water available and suitable bedding and litter. A childs wading pool is not acceptable.
While a breeder may not invite you to the maternity area proper to see a mother and her newborns…you should still be invited to a comfortable clean area within the home to visit with the breeder themselves, you should be able to see information on puppies either in hardcopies or electronic form, to see the dam and possibly the sire, if he is on site. The breeder should feel comfortable to discuss things like the temperament and health warranty, what health work has been done on the puppy thus far and what to expect from the breeder in the forseeable future and answer questions about the breed in general and puppy rearing.
You should have materials at your disposal to aid you in the initial weeks at home.
Do not feel offended if the breeder asks you questions regarding your qualifications as a pet owner.
Remember, finding the right home for our puppies is just as important to us, as finding the right pup for your family is to you.
