You have the power to take the worry out of buying your puppy on line.  There are alot of advantages to being able to buy a puppy on line.  You now have the ability to reach far beyond your local area, and can now reach people who are excellent breeders, people who will not compromise their love of the breed, years of expertise, talent, and hard work.  This is the kind of person you want to buy from.

 

You want to buy a healthy puppy with a excellent Poodle temperament.  Ask these questions –   The Scammers are counting on you not to know this information.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Your questions:

Can I visit the puppies to see how you raise them?

Can I meet the parents?

Do your puppies have the needed vaccinations for Parvo, distemper, and kennel cough?

Do I receive AKC or UKC registration papers when I receive my puppy?

Do you microchip your dogs and puppies?

Do you have a Vet check the puppies before they are sold?

Can you provide me with a written statement signed by a licensed veterinarian that entails record of the puppy’s health and microchip number?

Do you Optigen test your breeding dogs?

Do you DNA test your breeding dogs?

Will you give me copies of the DNA testing?

Does the lines of dogs you breed ever shown signs of:  Seizures, thyroid disorder, renal, eye, hip dysplasia, leg perthes, cushings or any other disorder?

Do you have a written Health Guarantee?

 

Rule of thumb:  The more “Yes” answers you get, the better the odds are that you will get a good puppy.  Beware of people saying the puppies are home raised. (They are probably backyard breeders).  And NEVER buy a puppy from a petstore.  If a seller seems unsure of what you are asking, or dodges your questions, that is a red flag to look elsewhere.

We wish you the very best in finding your new family member.

Puppy Mills

PUPPY MILLS SELL THEIR PUPPIES THROUGH ONLINE BROKERS OR PET SHOPS.

Puppy Mills are operating without regard for their dogs,  physical or mental welfare.  Buying a puppy that has been bred in a in unhealthy, inhumane conditions make the odds very real that you could buy a puppy that may have temperament disorders, or will develop life threatening health conditions. The puppy may cost you less in the beginning, but may cost you much more in time and veterinary expenses.  Not to mention the heart ache of owning an unhealthy pet.

Be aware of the temptation to impulse buy “falling in love at first sight” when you go to a petshop.

Poodles can have a life span of up to 18 years. You are looking for a Poodle, now you have a chance to pick the perfect family member if you do a little investigating before you buy.

Over the years I have had conversations with alot of heartbroken people who have just lost their beloved pet because of a genetic disorder that the pet was born with.

DO YOUR  PART TO STOP THE CRUELTY IN PUPPY MILLS. 

IF PEOPLE WOULD STOP BUYING FROM THEM,

THEY WOULD NOT EXIST.

If you go to a breeder whose environment does not look clean, does not smell clean, puppies and adults do not look healthy and happy it is a puppy mill.   Do not buy from this breeder.   If the environment looks good,  ask for the Vet letter.  Ask the breeder to scan the puppy for it’s microchip and check to see that the Vet letter has the same microchip number.  Look to see if the Vet noted any abnormalities.  Last make sure that the breeder provides you with the Opti-Gen certificate for the sire.

Over the years I have had conversations with alot of heartbroken people who have just lost their beloved pet because of a genetic disorder that the puppy was born with, but was not apparent when they bought the puppy.  Nearly all genetic defects can be prevented by ethical breeding practices.  My heart goes out to the adult dogs and their puppies that were born without regard for the quality of life all canines deserve.  And  for their owners who have spent countless hours and lots of money trying to keep their pet comfortable.

EVERYONE OF THESE DOGS CAME FROM A PET SHOP (PUPPY MILL) OR A BACKYARD BREEDER
