1.   Research about the breed you are interested in.

BREED STANDARDS of different breeds

http://www.akc.org/breeds/index.cfm?nav_area=breeds


2.   Talk to several owners about the breed you are interested in, their personality and traits; gather as much information as possible. Make sure that the breed you choose matches your lifestyle, to avoid reselling of these pups or end up in the dog pound.

3.   Look for an honest, responsible and ethical breeder. Avoid breeders who uses terms such as teacups, rare colours, show quality pups, champion lines, so and so number of redmarks (Champion Dogs) and greenmarks (Sire/Dam of Merit) in the pedigree of the puppy, selling their puppies at less than 2 months of age.

4.   Make sure that the puppy is current on medical care. Deworming, vaccination shots and recorded in their vaccination records by their veterinarian. 

5.   Be sure to obtain a health guarantee from the breeder. This will give you some time about 48-72 hours to take the pup to your vet for a check up. If the vet finds a serious problem with the pup, return the puppy immediately to the breeder and ask for a full refund of the purchase price. And make sure that you get this guarantee in writing.

6.   If you are planning to join dog shows (conformation show) and contemplating on breeding in the future, please read this link to learn more.

To make it more very PPF specific, get a pup from a breeder who are proud of their breeding...who considers the pups not as mere merchandise to sell.There are lots of breeders who really find time and effort in making sure their pups go to good loving homes...find those type of breeders and you will feel good having a pup from them.These breeders will even become your mentors...to guide you bring up your baby well...to be there when you have problems like simple toilet training,breed behavioral understanding,grooming,nutrition and all.

There are breeders who advertise their pups here with some "shady characters".They start off hiding some things for some reasons,we find fishy and could not understand.This does not look like a good start in dealing with one good home.So,just to make sure...beware!Go somewhere else.There are good breeders out there...you just have to look around so more.If you dont have enough cash...save more and get a good pup from a good breeder.saving on some few bucks of getting a cheap pup from a "questionable breeder" might just rob you more in quality of structure and health(plus attitude of the breeder).

Add ko lang.... dapat din siguro mag self examination tayo before we decide to get a puppy. Para ding pag-aanak yan eh. Are we ready both emotionally and financially? When in doubt.... don't.

Question to ask a breeder:

1. How long has the breeder been breeding dogs?

2. Is the breeder knowledgeable about the breed? Does he/she demonstrate a knowledge of the Standard of the Breed?
Responsible breeders try to breed dogs as close as possible to the breed standard, which does not recognize "teacup" or "imperial" , "rare color" etc . If you want a truly tiny dog, select another breed.

3. Does he or she represent his dogs as honestly as possible and try to assist the serious novice in his understanding of the breed?

4. Is he or she involved in competition with their dogs (conformation, obedience, agility)?
This indicates valuable experience with the breed.

5. Does she/he trace health problems in the dogs he sells?
If new to the breed, has breeder carefully researched the genetic problems that may lurk in the background of his lines? The breeder should be knowledgeable about and working to control and/or eradicate conditions, including those that are particular to the breed, such as renal dysplasia, portal systemic shunt, hip and eye problems, allergies, Von Willebrands disease, thyroid disorders, and inguinal hernias? ASTC pamphlets can tell you more about breeding healthy dogs and renal dysplasia.

6. Have the puppies been raised in the home?
Puppies used to home activity will more easily adapt to new families and homes. Puppies require proper socialization by gentle handling, human contact, and a wide variety of noises and experiences, and should not be removed from their dam or littermates before 8 weeks of age. (Some clubs Code of Ethics suggests puppies not be sold before 12 weeks.)

7. Have the puppies' temperaments been evaluated and can the breeder guide you to the puppy that will best suit your lifestyle?
A very shy puppy will not do well in a noisy household with small children, just as a very dominant puppy won't flourish in a sedate, senior citizen household. A caring breeder will know the puppies and be able to help you make a good match.

8. How often is the dam bred?
Breeding every heat cycle is too often and may indicate that profit is the primary motive for the breeding.

9. On what basis was the sire chosen?
If the answer is "because he lives right down the street" or "because he is really sweet," it may be that sufficient thought was not put into the breeding.

10. Are the puppy's sire and dam available for you to meet?
If the sire is unavailable can you call his owners or people who have his puppies to ask about temperament or health problems? You should also be shown pictures or videos.

11. Where did you find out about this breeder?
Responsible breeders usually breed only when they have a waiting list of buyers and don't need to advertise in newspapers or put a sign in the yard.

12. Will the puppy be sold with a mandatory spay/neuter contract and/or limited registration (which means that if the dog is bred, the puppies cannot be registered)?
A breeder who cares enough about the breed to insist on these for a pet puppy is usually a responsible breeder.

13. Do the puppies seem healthy, with no discharge from eyes or nose, no loose stools, no foul smelling ears? Are their coats soft, full, and clean? Do they have plenty of energy when awake yet calm down easily when gently stroked?
If the puppy is in good weight, a slight, clear nasal discharge may be due to pinched nostrils, quite common during the teething phase. They generally open as the puppy matures. Small umbilical hernias almost always close with age.

14. Does the breeder advise you to have the puppy checked by a veterinarian within 2 days (48 hours) of sale, with additional time allowed if the puppy is sold on a Saturday or Sunday, and provide a written agreement to refund the purchase price or take the puppy back and replace it if it is found to be unfit by a veterinarian? Has the puppy received the necessary immunizations and been checked for parasites and treated if necessary?

15. Does the breeder provide a 3-5 generation pedigree, a complete health record, and material to help you with feeding, grooming, training, and housebreaking?

16. Are there a majority of titled dogs (the initials CH, CD, etc. before or after the names) in the first two generations?
The term "champion lines" means nothing if those titles are back three or more generations or if there are only one or two in the whole pedigree. Also, remember that not all champions are created equal and that a champion may or may not produce quality puppies.

17. Does the breeder have only 1 or at most 2 breeds of dogs and only 1 litter at a time?
If there are several breeds of dogs, the breeder may not devote the time it takes to become really knowledgeable about our breed. If there are several litters at a time, it is very difficult to give the puppies the attention they need and may indicate that the primary purpose for breeding is profit, rather than a sincere desire to sustain and improve the breed.

18. Will the breeder be available for the life of the dog to answer any questions you might have? Is this someone you would feel comfortable asking any type of question?
If you feel intimidated or pressured, keep looking!

19. Will the breeder take the dog back at any time, for any reason, if you cannot keep it?
This is the hallmark of responsible breeding (and the quickest, best way to make rescue obsolete).

20. Does the breeder belong to the any local breed club and abide by the Code of Ethics?
Responsible breeders also do not sell puppies to pet shops or commercial pet mill establishments, donate puppies for raffles or auctions, crossbreed or sell crossbred puppies, or give stud service to unregistered bitches.
