Would love some feedback

I'm not comfortable with the drama this is causing,
The edit button is not giving me the option to delete this so I just felt it best to remove the breeders name.
I like her and am not trying to create bad press for her.

Thanks,


Nicole

The website looks promising. I don't see any obvious red flags BUT the site is missing a lot of key information. You'll need to start a conversation with the breeder about health testing, the parents of the pups, etc, etc. If the breeder answers all of that satisfactorily and provides more info (see the how to choose a breeder sticky) -- go visit and see what the conditions are like yourself.

I spoke with her for a little. I love that she is only and 1 1/2 away from me so I am able check her out which she was more than willing for me to do.

I plan on speaking with her again tomorrow and she is going to email me a copy of her contract. If everything looks good I will be able to visit and choose a puppy that I would get in a few weeks.

Does she do all the proper health testing of the parents? (hips, elbows, patellas, heart, bile acid, CERF) and BAER testing on the puppies? A "vet check" is not enough. This is VERY important.

Found this on Google. Some very undesirable reviews, sadly:


Scary stuff if these reviews are true.

Those bad posts are not true. There are two sides to every story. I have tried over and over to get a hold of that website owner and they will not respond.

I just wanted to post an update.
I did proceed with breeder.

I have to say that so far I am having a wonderful experience with her. My family and I went out to meet her and her husband. We saw both mothers of the two litters she currently has and saw the puppies. I can't wait to get my little one home in a few weeks.

I think sometimes their may be clashes in personality or misunderstandings but no one has ever said anything negative about the health of her puppies and that's why I chose to go with her.

Did you find out whether the parents are health tested? This is important. Many genetic health problems don't show up until after puppyhood. Because most are not "life threatening" they are rarely covered by the breeder's guarantee, and while NOT life threatening, they can be VERY expensive to fix.

Checking her out in person, and seeing the moms and pups is a great start on your research. But MAKE SURE that the proper testing has been done on the parents, and that the results have been registered with OFFA/CHIC. Otherwise, you're playing Russian Roulette. Not everyone loses, but if you're the one who does, it can be very costly. And the odds favor the house, not you.
