Question's you should ask before buying a puppy

Start by asking if the puppy has had any shots. By the time a pup is Eight weeks of age it should have at frist one shot. Then, ask what kind of shot was given. There are different types of shots, and the one I prefer is 7 in 1. The 7 in 1 contains distemper, hepatitis, adenovirus cough, parainfluenza, parvovirus, and both leptospirosis types. Now just because I like this shot does not mean that other breeders do.

The second thing you should ask, is if the pup has been wormed and what kind of worms did the pup have. Worms are not a bad thing they can be taken care of by medicine. Now you should have your pup checked for worms so you can get rid of them. If you do not do anything it can make your pup sick and it may die. Now most pups have worms, normally they are round worms, so the person that is selling the pup should treat for round worms.

Then you should find out if they have both the mother and father of the pups. If they do not have the mother or father ask if they have a picture of either one. You should also ask how old the pup is. You do not want to get pup that is to young Eight weeks is a good age. All your questions can be asked over the phone. If you are happy with the results then it is time to go and see the puppies.

When you get to the place where the pups are you should see how well the pups are taken care of, and where they are kept, looking for things like if the animal is clean or if the area is to small for them. I like to keep my pups in a playpen, they have room to play and a place to mess and to sleep. I put newspaper at the bottom so when they mess it is easy to clean. Not only where the pups are kept but where the Dam or the Sire are kept and are they clean and happy. I think if the mother and father are hleathy the pup should be healthy too. It will not take long to see how well the animals are cared for, you should see it right away.

When you look at a puppy you should not pick it up right away, watch it first. Look at the personality of a pup, I like playful pups. But everybody is different maybe you like the more lazy pup. After you watch them pick the one you like up.

Look at its teeth, see if it has a bad bite or not. If it has a bad bite and that is the pup you what. usually the person that is selling the will drop the price. There is nothing wrong with the pup if it has a bad bite but you should not breed it. Because it can be carried on through generations.
