Puppy Care Page - List of recommended products and things you will need when bringing home your puppy. Plus some tips and what to expect.
If you are thinking of buying a puppy from someone who is selling them for a much cheaper price, be careful. Do some research. Buying a puppy is a big commitment. They become part of your family. Plus you have to remember that you are supporting, and sustaining a breeders program when you buy a puppy from them. Be sure that you feel that your breeder should continue breeding. Most pups that are sold at a reduced rate come from puppy mills. Puppy mills breed their bitches every cycle! The mothers are not healthy and are kept in terrible conditions, with little to no human contact! This means the pups are not healthy, usually do not have a strong immune system, and they are not socialized. Brokers buy the pups from mills by the litter. Then they take them into another state and advertise them at a reduced price. They are into quantity NOT quality! Puppy mills treat their dogs like a cash crop. Please do not contribute to them. Please just do a little research, know your breeder and know where your pup is coming from. If you want to rescue a puppy from a mill, rescue them all by calling the local animal control or humane society!
