Finding Puppies

Do you have a brand new puppie? Or better still, are you about to embark on a search for a new puppie?

Since we’re at the begining of our journey on finding puppies, let’s start by concluding you have just made the decision to get a puppy and aren’t sure of a direction. Check out these videos before you read the rest of my article.

What kind of a puppie do you want? If you haven’t yet decided what kind of puppie you want, then its time to conduct a little research. I have a great place for you start. There are over 160 dog breeds listed on the web page I’m about to give you. Each breed listed is actually a link to detailed info on that breed. Here’s the link ……. Find a Breed ……. Have fun with it.

Next, where do you get your puppy? Oh boy, there are so many places to get puppies. You just need to be real careful. Here’s why.

Puppie Mills – these places spend their time just cranking out puppies without thought to the results. To them it’s all about the money. Specifically, they breed pups to close. This can have real long term negative effects on litters in terms of health and disposition. Add to that the fact that they stuff many pups in the same cage …… and that’s how these pups spend their life. Not even close to being humane.

Do your part by not buying puppies from:
1) People set up in parking lots and sidewalks with cute puppies in a cage or cardboard box.
2) Websites where you can’t check out the owners and their legitimacy.
3) Blind newspaper ads and fliers on your windshield from anyone claiming to be a breeder.

You can prevent this by doing business with registered dog breeders. Here’s a link to a page where you can find registered breeders in your area. This will help you in Finding Puppies ….. Find A Breeder.

Veterinarian Recommendations – and why not, who better to know reputable local breeders that can be recommended. If you don’t have a vet yet here’s a link to a page where you can find vets in your area ….. Find a Vet.

 Puppie Adoption – this includes the SPCA, Private Shelters, and even Vet Hospitals. Many times you can adopt for a donation or small fee, or even for free just so the puppie gets a good home. Retailers like PetCo also conduct adoption days.

My daughter is an RVT (Registered Vet Tech). I adopted my puppie “Dixie” from the vet hospital where she works.

Well, there you have it. By now you should be set to start finding puppies.

In service to pups everywhere,

ps: it’s wise to seek the advice of a vet once you get your pup.
