Puppy Breeders

As you all know by now, I am a huge animal advocate and a proponent of adopt, adopt, adopt. Even if you want a purebred dog; even if you want a puppy; please go to the shelters and rescue groups first. It is a fact that 25% of the dogs that end up in shelters are purebreds. However, if you still insist on getting your puppy from a breeder, then for goodness sake go to a reputable one. How will you know? Look for the following:
  • The breeder will supply references
  • They will breed only one breed of dogs, ie Yorkies
  • You will get to see the facility where the dogs are bred and raised
  • The breeders will not release the puppy to you until they are at least 8 weeks of age.
  • The puppies are being socialized by the breeder.
  • The puppies have been examined by a veterinarian
  • You will be able to meet the dame and sire ( Puppy parents)
  • The contract that you sign with the breeder will insist that you spay or neuter the puppy at the appropriate time.
  • The contract will ask you to give the puppy/dog back to them if for any reason you are unable to continue to care for it.
  • Good breeders do not sell their puppies to pet stores or on the Internet. Puppies purchased online or in pet stores are puppy mill puppies or backyard breeders. DO NOT SUPPORT THESE PEOPLE. !!!!!
