BIG UPDATE!!!!

Okay so my dad wanted to buy a puppy >.<
I strongly strongly believe in adopting shelter dogs. But my dad obviously didn't care and just wanted to buy a puppy.

So we got a handsome 12 week old yorkie pup, his name is Buddy. ^.^ Although I do not like where he came from, I FREAKING LOVE THIS GUY! xD

I can't stand the cuteness! What's his name? awwwwwwwwww!!!!!!

edit: oh I missed it, BUDDY!

Sounds like you got him from a backyard breeder? Just hope he doesn't have any health problems your dad will refuse to pay for

Will your dad get him fixed or does he want to become the next backyard breeder

Yes, a BYBer. Although I must say its not as bad as the typical BYBer- they're fed good quality food, and came with vet papers.
Not that it makes it right.

DeeOhJee has a follow up vet appt in a few weeks and my dad is taking him to it. I think after losing Malachi he realized how fragile life is. He is also taking this puppy to have his follow up shots. I'm not sure if he's getting him neutered.

When I saw him looking at pups online, I tried telling him the difference between a BYBer and a reputable breeder. But he told me to get off my high horse.

Vet records are a good sign, also that he is 12 weeks old and not 6

I agree with Registered's post above :)

Also, he is too cute! And, I love the photo of your big puppy sitting next to him!

Though your dad didn't want to take your advice, I love that you've done all your research and know all about the BYB issues, etc. You're a smart cookie :)

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Anyone care to tell me the difference between an un-reputable BYB and a reputable one? My family is looking into getting a pup, but I'd really like to know what to look for in BYB area.

Most BYB don't do health/genetic tests on their dogs because they are trying to make a quick buck off the litter.
