Puppy information

I want to know what my dog look like and what breed he is. Why? This is a vital question for prospective buyers. You’ll want to know the background and genetic makeup of your dog. Your breeder is also responsible for the care, training, and maintenance of your dog. The fact that your prospective puppy could be sick is a red flag to some people, so your breeder will want to make sure he has been well-liked and is currently healthy so that he can provide you with a good home for your puppy.

It’s also a good idea to research dogs by their sex, especially for puppies under one year old or for young pets. This is especially important if you are a female who is looking to adopt your own puppy.
