HOW MUCH IS A PUPPY?
To the person who writes an email to simply ask the price.
To the person who calls and after hearing a price surprisedly states: “I can buy a cheaper puppy elsewhere”.
To the person who doesn’t care about papers because I want “just a pet”.
No puppy is “just a pet”. Behind every pure-bred dog is a BREEDER. We are using capital letters to differentiate a breeder from a pet factory or mill. A reputable breeder does not breed puppies without papers because that does not protect the integrity of the breed. Registration (papers) are records of lineage that document bloodline and allow one to research any possible health issues present in the lineage.
When you tell a Breeder you don’t care about papers what you’re really telling them is you couldn’t care less about the health of the puppy, you just want the cheapest thing you can find! When you select to buy a puppy from a reputable and quality breeder, this breeder is responsible for the health of every puppy; both puppies they choose to keep themselves and every puppy they’ve sold for its lifetime.
This breeder will skip holidays, miss sleeping, and most of their personal house space has been turned into space for their dogs. The truly passionate breeder who loves what they breed puts their whole heart and soul into it. Not only in puppies that are sold, but also in each client who owns a piece of their heart and now is a member of their extended family.
This does not take into account any puppy/adult dog who might get sick or need extra help to thrive. Breeders worry about their babies after they leave and will take one back without question. A breeder will get their hands dirty, often covered in everything accompanied with birthing because that’s what life is about... In the middle of birth and death is life. It’s the wheel that keeps turning.
A breeder will do tests, echos, xrays, analysis, emergency c sections, vaccinations, register puppies and litters, research pedigrees, deworm, as well as microchip their puppies and get them evaluated by specialists.
Last but by no means least, a breeder CHOOSES the family lucky enough to have one of their puppies. Yes, you read that right. A true breeder chooses who they sell to because they are not making money off the sale. There is no compensation that can offset the investment a Breeder has made so they need to be confident its the right fit. Many times saying more no’s then yes... A good Breeder will have different criteria for those wanting to carry on their bloodline, why? Because breeding is not a responsibility to ever be taken lightly, it’s a lifestyle choice set aside for ONLY the few devoted people willing to sacrifice. Because a dog is never “just a pet” it’s the Breeder’s legacy, a little boy’s best friend, a little girls protector, an elderly persons therapy, a member of the family, someone’s whole world!!!
