@ZeusCsmommy What I'm referring to are breeders who are either so obsessed with meeting the standard they sacrifice health and temperment or more frequently breeders who don't health test and just throw 2 dogs together to get puppies and even after having sick puppies they continue to breed. Yiu can tell a lot by asking questions. What happens if I can't keep the dog I purchased? If they don't want first right to return RUN. Also ask about health guarantee what happen s if there is something wrong with the pup? How do you choose which dogs you breed? Why are you breeding? Have any of your dogs had health issues? What health checks have the breeding dogs had? Can I talk to your vet and previous puppy adopters? If they give coy or off putting answers to any of these questions look elsewhere. Don't expect them to be perfect but look for them to be honest and caring.
