Please consider one important thing. If you purchase a pup without seeing it first and seeing where it came from and without getting to know the breeder, you do not know anything about the pup. What you do know is that the breeder doesn’t care about who buys their pups and that money is the driving factor. There should always be a good relationship between puppy buyer and breeder and this relationship should last for the lifetime of the dog. As a breeder I am available to the new owner for the life of the puppy. To me there is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling than to see pictures of my pups throughout their lives and to keep in contact with their owners.
