When purchasing a puppy, it’s important to find a trustworthy breeder. There are many private sellers and puppy farms out there who put on a credible front while breeding dogs in terrible conditions using unethical practices. Not only is this cruel, but often produces sickly pups.
Your best bet is to go with a Kennel Club Assured breeder, or one with a licence. They should have up-to-date paperwork, have made sure your dog is microchipped, will provide all the information you need about your new pup and much more.
Adopting from a rescue centre is also an amazing way to bring a mixed breed dog into your life, while doing good at the same time.
