What is a reputable and responsible dog breeder?
To the Editor:
You are searching for a puppy to add to your family - how do you find that perfect puppy?
Once you have researched and chosen the breed that you think will complete your family, look up that breed's parent club online.
On each breed's parent website you will find wonderful information on health, temperament, breeder referral, and rescue information. Start talking with a breeder from the referral list. Not every breeder who is a member will be listed on the referral list, but it is important for a breeder to be a member and in good standing with the parent club.
