Buy From A Responsible Breeder !

Responsible Breeders:
  • are the best source for a well-bred, healthy dog;
  • screen their dogs for genetic problems and can show proof that the parents of the litter are free of these problems;
  • participate in some type of event, i.e., conformation shows, obedience, agility, herding, field trials, etc;
  • belong to a dog club (all breed, obedience, specialty club, etc);
  • will ask for references and/or do a home visit to assure you will be a responsible owner; 
  • will usually insist that puppies sold as pets be spayed/neutered or placed on an AKC limited registration;
  • will take back any dog of their breeding at any age.  They assume a lifetime responsibility for the puppies they breed;
  • would never sell puppies through a retail store or animal broker;
  • will be there for you when you need advice or help with caring for, grooming, or training your dog; and
  • will allow you to examine their premises to make sure they are clean and the dogs are well cared for.
