4Paws is exactly right! Patience, research, directly talking to breeders, visiting them, are all part and parcel of making sure you find the right breeder. You will learn so much as you do your due diligence. You may not end up with a puppy this year, even. The breeder I chose has had longer wait lists than mine! Once you've understood that, you'll understand that the wait is worth it in the end!

Biancales is where my baby is coming from and Kaco also comes highly recommended. From the ones you're curious about, I would take a closer look at Haven Woods. Remember.......PATIENCE!!!

Thank you. What exactly should I look for in a breeder? Would you be kind enough to look at this one and give me your opinion? I asked what health testing she does and she said "Echocardiogram by cardiologist, 24 hour heart Holter, DM and ARVC."

I am definitely going to be patient this time around because we lost our 1 year old boxer due to kidney issues not too long ago. We are distraught over it but both agreed we would love to get another one eventually.

On a glance, it looks like they put the health test results right on their site which is perfect. You want a breeder with complete transparency. What you want to find out is the number of times they will breed their females. My breeder doesn't put her girls through any more than 3 litters. I was quite impressed with that! You can never 100% guarantee that you will have a perfectly healthy puppy but you do want to make sure that the parents have been tested clear as possible. That will improve the puppies chances. The best advice I can give is to visit the breeders. As many as you can. Follow your gut and not your heart. If something feels off, walk away. Do not compromise just to get a puppy sooner. Ask to see the health documentation, take a good look and interact with the dogs themselves. If there is a litter born, the breeder should offer to show you. Again, pay attention to the surroundings. The home should still smell clean despite the dogs. I say this because 1 breeder I went to see was awful. A disgusting smell smacked you right in the face when we entered. The house was filthy, we were not permitted to see the puppies or the mom. BIG RED FLAGS!! Pay attention to everything. The breeder themselves should be welcoming, positive and very informative. The websites can be very promising which makes it difficult because, unless you are able to visit, you don't truly know what the breeding practice is actually like. So, second best is to call the breeder with all your questions ready to go. They should be more than willing to talk with you and not rush. Remember, they want you to get your puppy from them! Again, use your best judgement. Hope this helps!
