Otherwise, you can go through a reputable breeder. They’ll certainly have puppies, and you’ll know where they came from. You can begin your search on the AKC Marketplace since the American Kennel Club recognizes this breed.
Remember, an ethical breeder will do the following:
- Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
- Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations
- Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s safe (and then get the puppies tested)
- Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
- Want to meet with you in person so you guys can get to know one another and for you to meet the parents and the litter
In addition, the breeder will be able to answer all of your questions about the process, the breeder, and their experience and reputation.
If you find a breed that does not do the above, then you’ll want to stay away from them. For example, they might be a puppy mill or a backyard breeder, and they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes. Bowie…
