Good Dogs! (04-24-2017) #6066: Marcy from Avidog International talks about how to find a reputable breeder if you’re looking for a purebred puppy. Her tips include: find that breed’s national club of America which will list known strengths and weaknesses of that breed, along with a health link on that site. Talk to a breeder how they address health issues like eye and heart diseases. Local breed clubs will give referral to breeders expecting puppies (or that have dogs available for re-homing). Ask a breeder for references from previous puppy buyers.
