Decided on a puppy?  Please be careful about buying a puppy from a backyard breeder. A backyard breeder is someone who has a purebred dog and breeds it without knowing anything about genetics, health issues or even knowing which dogs should never be bred.

image "BEFORE YOU GET YOUR PUPPY" This book will prepare you for everything to do with choosing your puppy and will have you set up for success before you bring your puppy home.
"Finding a Responsible Breeder" is a must read for anyone considering buying a pup!
NEVER buy a puppy over the internet, from a pet store or through the newspaper. There is over a 90% probability that the puppy came from a backyard breeder or, even worse, a puppy mill.
