Purebred dogs are growing more and more popular each day. Some people love the way a certain breed looks, and others love the idea of prestige that comes with a purebred dog. However, some people are better salesman than they are breeders, so it is important to do your homework and research each breeder thoroughly. If you follow the tips below, you can be sure that the dog you’re taking home is happy and healthy.
You should always consider adopting a dog in need before anything else. Although you can’t be sure what breed of dog will be there at any given time, it is not uncommon for purebred dogs to wind up at the humane society. The only downside to adoption is that the dogs are often a few months to a few years older; they are bought young and given up shortly thereafter. You’ll need to authenticate the breed of the dog, but it is worth it to know that you’ve given a dog in need a loving home.
You’ll find hundreds of listings on the internet and in the newspaper for breeders. But exactly what do these ads tell you about the breeders and their facilities? Absolutely nothing. Most buyers do not think to ask to see any sort of license or accreditation. Just because you have a male dog and a female dog in your backyard does not mean you are a legitimate breeder. A legitimate breeder will present you with a healthy, happy dog that has been vaccinated and well taken care of.
Young purebreds are best for those who plan on training them to compete. After you determine the breed of dog you are interested in, do some research to find a breeder. Dog shows are a great place to meet professional breeders; they may have just what you’re looking for, or at the very least be able to point you in the right direction. A good breeder will ask you several questions in order to insure that the dog is going to a happy home. They should be more than happy to walk you around the property, showing you exactly where the dog has grown up and how it was raised. If you sense that the breeder is keeping a secret from you, I would think twice about your purchase.
A good purebred can be difficult to find, but if you do your homework you will end up more than happy with your dog. There are an unbelievable amount of breeders in the world who want their dogs to go to happy homes; it just takes a little work to find them. No matter how badly you want to take a puppy home, you’ll be glad if you approach the purchase with a discriminating eye; if you do, you are bound to walk away with a happy, healthy purebred.
