Important Information
for Puppy Buyers
Buyer Beware


DO NOT BUY FROM A BACKYARD BREEDER/PUPPY MILL
BREEDER LIKE THIS . TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEBSITE AND HOW
MANY DOGS THEY HAVE.  A PUPPY MILL WILL HAVE OVER 30
DOGS. HOW DOES SOMEBODY HAVE THAT MANY DOGS GIVE
THE ATTENTION THAT EACH ONE NEEDS INDIVIDUALLY?  
NOTE; LATELY I HAVE SEEN THAT THEY ONLY LIST 4 DOGS ON
THEIR WEBSITE.  

CHECK ON HOW MANY LITTERS THEY PRODUCE ON AN
AVERAGE - YEARLY. A GOOD BREEDER BREEDS ONLY
OCCASIONALLY (ONE OR 2 A YEAR) AND BREEDS A LITTER
WITH THE SOLE OBJECTIVE TO IMPROVE THE BREED. THEY
OFTEN WILL KEEP A QUALITY PUP FOR THEMSELVES TO
IMPROVE THEIR BREEDING PROGRAM.

WARNING: A BREEDER THAT KEEPS REPEATING THE SAME
BREEDING (SOMETIMES THE SAME 2 DOGS) OVER & OVER IS  
NOT IMPROVING THE BREED. THEY ARE BREEDING SOLELY
FOR PROFIT. ONE BREEDER HAD THEIR FIRST 4 LITTERS ALL
FROM THE SAME BITCH.

A PUPPY MILLER:
1) MAY HAVE SERIOUS HEALTH  ISSUES BEWARE.
HEREDITARY DISEASES AND COMMON HEALTH PROBLEMS.

2) THEY PROBABLY DO NOT BREED ACCORDING TO THE
BREED STANDARD ADOPTED BY THE AKC & THE  BORDER
COLLIE SOCIETY OF AMERICA

3) THEIR BREEDING STOCK IS MEDIOCRE OR POOR QUALITY
DOGS

4)THEY BREED THEIR BITCHES ONE HEAT CYCLE AFTER THE
OTHER FOR $$$$ PROFITS.

5) THEY SELL THEIR PUPPIES WITHOUT PAPERS. THEY DO
NOT HAVE THEIR PUPPIES REGISTERED. NOT TO SAVE YOU
MONEY BUT, SO THE NUMBERS OF LITTERS THEY PRODUCE
CANNOT BE TRACED BY THE AUTHORITIES. THERE IS NO
PAPER TRAIL. MAYBE THEY ARE HIDING SOMETHING. YOU
NEED TO BE ABLE TO TRUST YOUR BREEDER.  

THEY ARE  SCARY, DON'T LET THEM FOOL YOU.
MONEY MOTIVATES THEM.

REMEMBER YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

A BREEDER THAT DEALS NOT WITH QUALITY BUT, WITH
QUANTITY CAN PRICE THEIR DOGS LOWER SINCE THEY WORK
ON VOLUME.   


Be a responsible, informed consumer-if you do buy from a
breeder, go to a reputable one:

1) Who will show you where the dogs spend their time and
introduces you to the puppy's parents.

Remember all puppies are sweet, adorable, cute balls of fur.
But, they will not stay that way. How they will look later? Look
at the parents. They probably will grow up to look like them
and have similar personalities and traits like them. Let this
guide you.

2) Who explains the puppy's medical history, including vaccines,
and gives you their veterinarian's contact info.

3)  Who doesn't have puppies available year-round, yet may
keep a waiting list for interested people.

4) who asks about your family's lifestyle, why you want a dog,
and your care and training plans for the puppy.

5) Who doesn't use pressure sales tactics.

NOTE: Puppies are generally evaluated by the age of 8 weeks
and even though all are from the same parents, they are not
equal in quality. And they should be priced accordingly. This is
why the pick of the litter is generally the most expensive. A
breeder will have show quality dogs priced for more than pet
quality. This only makes sense.


I hope this page helps you make your decision on where & from whom to acquire
your Border Collie Puppy. I am not trying to target any one breeder. And I am sure
reputable breeders will not be offended.  

Owning a Border Collie is a serious commitment. They should be considered as
new member of your family. And hopefully active, loving members for a long time.
