Molly...I know she has a contract but I haven't seen it. She did say it covers health issues and yes, this puppy has had several vet visits and all his shots. She also mentioned today in an email that she'll be bringing two sets of records, one for us and one for our vet.
I think this is a relatively old fashioned breeder. She's very involved in the Toy Dog association of Dallas/Ft Worth, she's been breeding and showing for a long time. I first found her on a Google search in January and reached out. She said she's sure when I see him all my qualms will dissolve. (Or not). I've told the SO (who is flying to Dallas to get him, instead of me who hurt her back a week ago) to feel free to say "not for us..." and leave without the puppy if there are any 2nd thoughts upon seeing him.
For reasons that I hope are not awful, this puppy is just small. I need to remember this: so am I! That's why I began my breeder search by asking people if they ever had puppies who grew to be on the small side, by which I meant 8-10 pounds. I'm small...I'm not young. when this puppy is 14 (as I hope he'll be) and needs to be carried to the car, I will be too old to pick up a 14 pound dog. So I started this by searching for a smallish dog. I didn't mean freakishly small, but within the standard but on the small side.
We believe in health insurance for our dogs and I'll just hope we don't need it often. Thank you so much for all this valuable input.
