    Well the best thing to do is go with your gut feeling. If something just doesn't feel right or look right, it probably isn't. Look around, the place should be clean and smell clean. Pups clean and mom and other bullies look healthy and have a good disposition. If they keep them outside it's usually a bad sign. Some big breeders will have a separate building for their bullies, and that's OK, as long as it has A/C and heat, and is clean. Most will take a deposit and only give a receipt and that is normal. The breeders that don't let you come to their house and inspect the place and see their breeding stock, I would stay away from. I hope this helps.

    David gave you great info! I also tagged a few UK members... You can PM them the names of the breeder to see if they know of them - long shot, but never know.

    I don't know how it works in the UK but I did need to pay a deposit for Ftse when I chose him until he was ready to come home but I felt at ease with the Breeder like David said if you don't it probably is not. Good Luck

    You pay a deposit. Depending on the breeder is how much.
    Roughly 500 is about the morn 1/4 of the price of your dog.
