I've learned the hard way that it is hard to tell if you can trust your breeder.I put all my trust in a breeder just to find out that yeah she does it for the money. Very disappointing. She let us visit Jax when he was 3 weeks old and didnt send any pictures or anything until 2 days before we picked him up. I feel like we rescued Jax. Our first trip to the vet we were told that he had coccitius , an egg larve in his neck from a fly that had to be cut out (we were told it was from a bite from the other puppies)and he was malnourished.Jax was 2lbs the day we got him. He is doing much better now and is getting bigger everyday. The breeder was terrible. The birthdate on the akc papers are not even correct and after looking up what everything on the akc papers mean we found out that his mom had a litter of puppies in september of last year. I felt like I did my research finding this breeder . I can't even say how disappointed I am at this lady ,but we are very happy with Jax.
