  1. Where is the best place to get a dog from, breeder or rescue?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I'm interested to hear peoples views on where to get a new dog - do you go to a breeder or visit a rescue center?
  2. If your dog has a litter of puppies(once), does that make you a backyard breeder?

    Attention All New Members
    I ask this because I asked a question about our litter of pups, and this lady didn't even answer my question but instead called me an idiot backyard breeder. Oh, and it's not like we are going to sale the puppies. We are keeping two, going to give one to my sister, and the other to her friend...
  3. Need help finding a reputable Bichon breeder!

    General Dog Forum
    I am looking for a reputable breeder of small Bichons and Bichon-poos. I have done a lot of research online, but have found no breeders close enough to visit. Well, I have found two within a day's drive, but both have definite "puppymill" red flags, so I have decided against them. I know all of...
  4. Is this breeder legit?

    General Dog Forum
    http://www.blessedacrescollie.net/ Everything she's saying sounds right so far, but I had some hesitation when I googled her and found she had ads for two other breeds (Maltizu and King Charles Spaniels), yet nothing came up for her in terms of showing her dogs. Of course, you don't have to...

  6. Good German Shepard Breeders in DFW/Austin area?

    General Dog Forum
    I know threads like this are probably overdone but I've been sent on a mission by the boyfriend to find a German Shepherd puppy. He wants a Black and Red (which I guess are harder to find), and if possible, under $1,000. Any ideas?? Also, I know primarily what to look for: mom on site...

    Attention All New Members
    Hi, I'm new to the forum and I have a question. Has had any experience with the website purebredbreeders.com? I am interested getting a Havanese and came across one on their site that I'm pretty interested in. I think it's crazy to be considering buying a dog online. I always thought I'd...

  9. Cost from Breeder for a Corgi

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Was wondering what a reasonable cost would be for a Corgi from a breeder? Haven't had a dog in quite some time so I don't really know the specifics of price for a puppy.
  10. Is it wrong to buy dogs instead of adopting?

    General Dog Forum
    Someone at work started going off at me after I told her that I purchase all of my pets instead of adopting. I mean, it's great to adopt, but I like my pets to be raised by me from puppyhood. It's just not the same as taking a dog in that is already several years old. What do you think?
  11. What do you think of this German Shepherd breeder?

    General Dog Forum
    I need to ask the GSD people here a question, what do you think of this breeder http://www.pendragonsk9s.com/index.php ? I like most of their dogs, their facilities look nice, many of the puppies they've bred have become police K9s, they appear to train their dogs very well, and their dogs...

    Hi, I'm new to these forums and the main reason I decided to join is to help find out what is wrong with my 4 yr old Basset Hound. Four years ago, my family decided we wanted another dog because our old Basset passed away. We loved the breed and were looking to get another. One day after school...
  13. Important Questions About Breeder Responsibility When It Comes to Health Issues

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello, We recently purchased a Newfoundland puppy from a breeder in Ohio. We went to visit the puppy and the grounds first when the puppy was 5 weeks old, and then picked him this past week at 8 weeks. The grounds were 2 acres big, and the little guy was part of a 5-puppy litter. The dogs...
  14. breeder stalling on letting me pick my puppy?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I am buying a purebred puppy for the first time. The breeder has a decent reputation as far as I know. The problem is that the puppies are now six weeks old and I still have not been allowed to select my puppy. The puppy won't come home until it is eight weeks old, but I assumed I'd be able to...

  17. Looking to get a Papillon/Phalene

    General Dog Forum
    Ever since I met my friend's Papillons, I've had an interest in getting one (though I really would love the Phaléne ears specifically, but I like both either way) after looking more into the breed (and dogs in general) of coarse and seeing it's basically the perfect dog for me. However, in...
