Here is a GREAT article on Puppy Buying Tips

And I couldn’t agree more!

 

The first step on the road to pet ownership is to ask yourself some tough questions:

  1. Why do you want a puppy?
  2. Can you afford one?
  3. Are you prepared to take care of a dog every day for his entire life?

If you've decided you're ready for a dog, follow The HSUS's

(The Humane Society of the United States) top five puppy buying tips and you'll be far more likely to secure a healthy, well-socialized dog that doesn't drain your emotions or your pocketbook or wallet. One, in other words, who doesn't come from a puppy mill.

 

            1. Consider adoption.

Adopting a dog instead of buying one is the surest way to strike a blow against puppy mills. To find the perfect match, you'll want to choose the right one for you and your lifestyle. Animal shelters have dozens of dogs, many of them purebreds, just waiting for homes. There are also breed specific rescue groups for every breed of dog, including "designer" or "hybrids" like Labradoodles and Puggles. Mixed-breed dogs also make wonderful pets.

            2. Find a responsible breeder and visit their premises.

Responsible breeders provide a loving and healthy environment for their canine companions, but don't take their word for it. Never buy a puppy without seeing where they and their parents are raised and housed with your own eyes.

            3. Don't be fooled by common claims made by pet stores when pushing their puppies.

Despite what they may tell you, pet stores do sell puppy mill puppies.

            4. Don't be swayed by a great website or ad.

Just because a website says great things about their "home raised" or "family raised" puppies doesn't make it true. Many puppy millers pose as small family breeders online and in newspaper and magazine ads. Read about websites that mask the cruel reality of puppy mills.

            5. Avoid the temptation to "rescue" a puppy mill puppy by buying him.

Even though your intentions may be good, don't buy a puppy with the idea that you are "rescuing" him or her. Your "rescue" opens up space for another poor puppy mill puppy and puts money into the pockets of the puppy mill.

 Pet stores won't leave their cages empty and websites won't leave their pages blank. The money you spend on your puppy goes right back to the puppy mill operator and ensures they can continue breeding and treating dogs inhumanely.

!!!!!!!!! If you see someone keeping puppies in poor conditions, alert your local animal control authorities instead of buying  !!!!!!!!!!!!

Here’s a little note on how I personally feel about Pet Shops

You or "maybe" the shop owner might not know where there are truly getting there puppies from and They should really do their homework on this instead of ordering puppies and having them shipped and all jammed in a plane, then into a delivery truck.

 All it takes is one pup to be sick and now you are taking a chance of having your whole shipment as they call it possibly catching something. But who will ever know until you fall in love with these little guys through the glass window and decide to purchase him or her. Then maybe weeks or maybe even month’s later signs of some sort virus showing up.Be prepared for the high expense of the Vet Bill.

 

My opinion is there is local breeders of all sorts and I believe that pet shops/stores should utilize them more often then they do.Like one shop owner told me and I will quote his words if I have to.

He would love to sell my puppies in his Shop after he has seen how quick our puppies go and it would boost UP HIS OWN PUPPY SALES , and in one sense it would save him money with shipping and freight close to $450.each pup he orders which is a plus for him.

In another it would knock down all his other expenses with his other items not so good.

Trust and BELIEVE me not like I was or want any of my puppies or dogs to be sold in a shop! Although I like his shop, Has great customer service but just someone saying that I would be saving them money raised a red flag up in my head and all I could think of was if  I did such a thing, I would be known as a Backyard Breeder and that is something                      I WILL NOT BE KNOWN FOR.!!!!

Just like the real true saying goes.

How much is that doggie suffering in the window?

If you find any of this offensive well the truth hurts and will not apologize for the truth.
