LOOKING FOR A PET ....WELL ...Here are some things you should LOOK for
When Looking for a breeder ,here is a list of things to ask or to know to help in your decision .
Whether the breeder has been breeding for 5 years or 35 years ,something is wrong if
The breeder does not have a vet
if the puppy has not seen a vet
if the breeder gives feed store shots herself
if the only time they use a vet is when a state makes them
if the puppy has no health check and this information provided to you .
If you are out of state ,a state health certificate from the state the breeder is in MUST accompany
the pet .
If a breeder says you HAVE to pick up ,more than apt it is the way to get around a state health certificate
.If the breeder does not ship ,then she has no licensed vet that can provide a health certificate .Vets have to sign off that
they gave the shots ,all is up to date ,all paperwork in order ,no mange or lice ,worming is up to date .If a breeder can't
get a health certificate ,something is wrong .
All vet records must accompany the puppy .
Breeders that want you to think they are great will say ,"puppies can be killed or maimed going down
a conveyor belt at the airport " That is so absurb ,it is off hte wall .PUPPIES DO NOT GO DOWN THE BELT WITH LUGGAGE .
It is a way to get around getting a health certificate .Airlines require them .
A breeder that lets puppies go under 8 weeks ,says there is a 'fear factor " There is a "stress factor
" in all dogs ,young and old .Fear is a non issue .Most breeders know this and use it to sell puppies quick ,so they can breed
more faster .
A breeder that breeds the mom more than once a year .
A breeder that does not have a spay /neuter contract .
If a breeder has a less than 7 day health guarentee ,something is fishy .
A breeder that pays no vet bills if something is wrong .
A good breeder will help you to rehome that pet or take it back as long as they live .
A good breeder will try to stay in touch and ask you to do the same .
A good breeder will help when they can on any issue .
A good breeder will stand by you as you train your pet ,ready to help answer or if they cannot ,at
least be there to encourage you when you need it .
A good breeder will tell you the truth ,even if it hurts .
