    Default I just want a pet dog (why you want a proper breeder or rescue not a petshop special)

    I don’t want a show dog; I just want a pet.Ruffly Speaking | Ruffly Speaking

    this person says it so much better than I can.

    They compare going to the classifieds or pet shop and buying a "cheap puppy" to going to a used car dealership and buying an old Japanese lemon with a BMW badge on it thinking you're getting a bargain - when what you're buying is not a new BMW at all and will cost you more all up despite the seemingly cheap up front price.

    I like the article.
    But i also tend to be a tad like Sean's signature line when purchasing a pup. I want every pup i see.
    So i DO NOT VISIT.
    I keep communication to verbal with breeders. Only when one meets my needs, and i there's definately, do i go to collect/meet my pup.
    At 10weeks, i can only tell a little about them anyhow.

    After speaking to Lucky Lady, who's breeding bordeaux's, they are not quite active enough to fit in here, so we've decided a 2nd GSD will be added. As Bernie is no longer up to the job. He can retire.
    Finding a breeder of working stock is hard. As i dont compete. I will have to wait till a breeder has a litter with something dreadful in it, like too pale a face! But we're on lists now at least.
