Do Your Research
Please be careful and do your research when buying or adopting a pet. When you see people on buy and sells selling “purebred” puppies for $2000, you don’t know what you’re getting.
Just because mom and dad are healthy, doesn’t mean your new pet is guaranteed to be healthy. This is nothing more than someone who got 2 “purebred” digs off kijiji and bred them together. If you’re going to spend a bunch of money, find a reputable breeder. A reputable breeder does genetic testing and knows exactly what kind of lines it comes from.
Good breeders BETTER the breed. They do not breed for money. If you find yourself in a situation where you can’t keep your dog, they will take it back. They will have spay/neuter contracts and much more.
On the flip side, if you don’t really care about genetics, health guarantees or how purebred your dog is, adopt one! There are countless rescues out there that adopt out dogs for less and some fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered.
Shelters are busier than ever because of irresponsible breeding, so please don’t be part of the problem.
