I have never purchased a puppy from a breeder.  What should I look for when selecting my puppy?

When going to a breeder’s home to select a puppy try to view each puppy individually.  This will allow you to meet each puppy’s personality on an individual basis.  If you try to assess the entire litter all at once you may end up selecting the wrong pup.  Each litter is filled with different puppy personalities. A good breeder understands the personalities of the pet and matches them to their new owner.  Trust the breeder if they pick the puppy for you ahead of time.  The breeder ultimately wants the best home for their pups and would not put you with a puppy that they did not think was right for you.
