Our local veterinarian in New Orleans posted this information about what one of her friends went through when searching for a puppy.
There are many steps we went through when choosing where to get our new puppy. First we thought about getting a puppy from a registered breeder. As if you buy from a good breeder they can almost always answer every detailed question you might have about a breed's background, genetic idiosyncrasies, as well as its personality. One of the only problems with this idea is that it is very important to find the appropriate breeder. One thing that was recommended to us was to consult with a veterinarian or our local or national breed club to find the right one. Good breeders should let you inspect their facilities, and also give you names of previous customers. It is vital that you make sure that your puppy to be has gotten all his vaccinations as well as the proper medical care according to his age. There should also be a signed warranty that the dog is in good health. If you don't find these things in the breeder you are considering, find another one. Another place where we thought about looking was in a animal shelter or talking to a "breed rescue group." These are different associations that dedicate themselves to saving who are ownerless and finding them new homes. If you are searching for a specific breed, these associations are a good option as they specialize in all different types of breeds. Our local New Orleans veterinarian is always sure to point out that whatever type of pet you get it should be one you really want and plan on taking good care of.
