Dogs Become a Strong Part of Your Family and Your Heart

by Jason Homan

Dogs become a strong part of your family and your heart. You can choose among several places to buy your dog. One is a kennel whose business is breeding show-quality dogs but who also may have extra pups for sale as pets. Another is the one-dog owner who wants to sell the puppies from an occasional litter to pay the expenses of his small-scale breeding operation. Pet shops usually buy puppies for re-sale from overstocked kennels or part-time hobbyists, and you can generally buy a puppy there at a reasonable price. To find any of these, check the classified section of your local newspaper or look in the Yellow Pages of your phone book. If you or your friends go driving out in the countryside, be on the look out for a sigh announcing purebred puppies for sale.

Whichever source you choose, you can usually tell in a very short time whether the puppies will make healthy and happy pets. If they are clean, plump, and lively, they are probably in good health. At the breeder's you will have the advantage of seeing the puppies' dam and perhaps their sire and other relatives. Remember that the mother, having just raised a demanding family, may not be looking her best; but if she is sturdy, friendly, and well-mannered, her puppies should be too. If you feel that something is lacking in the care or condition of the dogs, it is better to look elsewhere than to buy hastily and regret it afterward. Buy a healthy dog with a good disposition, one that has been properly socialized and likes being around people.

Do you want a boy or a girl? Adult or pup? Whether to buy a grown dog or a young puppy?.

This is not an easy questions.

Temperament has to be very important because whatever else you do with your dog it is first and foremost your companion and friend.

You should not purchase a puppy from a breeder who disregards the breed standard, as they are misinformed, misleading, and do not have the best interest of the puppy or you in mind.

If you buy from a breeder, ask him to help you with your decision.
