The purchase of a dog is a huge commitment. We ask that you not enter into this choice quickly and think about how having a living, breathing animal will impact your everyday life. In our opinion it will enhance your daily life and make you smile. However this is a commitment that will last a lifetime (the dogs). Dogs require Patience and Love. It is not something that every person is able to do.

Once you have decided that you want to commit a decade or so to caring for a dog you need to find the right dog. There are several ways to go about this. One way is to rescue by contacting breed rescue groups or to visit local animal shelters. Yet another is to contact your local Kennel club for a list of breeders who have pledged to do health clearances on all breeding stock and who attend dog shows and seminars that teach this person the wacky world of genetics.

Remember you will be living daily with this wonderful new family member. Do yourself a favor and do your research to find the breed and breeder best for your lifestyle.
