Yes, I want to get it from a reputable breeder. My neighbor got hers from a puppy mill, I think. That poor dog had all kinds of problems. She had bladder surgery twice, had open sores on her and arthritis. My neighbor contributed to her problems by letting her have beer, bread, candy,chips and when she let a friend keep the dog the woman fed her hamburger. Mine is only going to be allowed only what the vet says it can have.

Yea I think the vet the food and discipline is the most important thing. Puppy mills make me sick. A good breeder should be able to give you a health background on the parents anyways.

Oh my neighbor was terrible! And she claims to be a big animal advocate but when Y told her that another neighbor was concerned about her puppy being kept in a cage for a few hours at the groomer's she said well it's just a blankety blank dog. What an idiot.

Yeah. She has no compassion at all. I had arthroscopic surgery on my 40th birthday on my knee and she says I'm much too young to be having those kind of problems. Well, excuse me but KIDS get arthritis, diabetes and cancer for crying out loud. Not that I was a kid at 40. Lol

I got. Thyroid disease at 17 and that's a disease you shouldn't see until your 40"s diseases don't discriminate.
