Puppies for Sale can be found at many different places. Think about your new puppy is going to be part of the family for the foreseeable future (up to maybe 16-17 months), then you need to ensure you’re getting your new puppy from a trustworthy source you can trust. In broad terms, the following available choices for finding Puppies for sale or rescue are: Breeders, rescue groups, pet stores, and online pet superstores. If you have your heart set on a particular breed, there may even be pet stores within driving distance. Of course, you can always check the classifieds, but you may not receive as wide a range of Puppies as with some of the other options.
It’s a good idea to ask around and get recommendations from people you trust before making a final decision on any puppy purchase. Good breeders and rescues are an obvious choice, but so too are breed rescue organizations. Some good breeder websites are listed at the US Pet Registry website and also at the Pet Finder website. The Pet Registry is the original website used by the United States Pet Registry and has been accessed countless times by both puppy buyers and pet stores. Pet Store Registry sites are often frequented by breed rescues looking for a good puppy stock, as well as by those who are looking to buy purebred Puppies in good working condition.
Good breeders and rescues may not have Puppies for sale in their own names, but may instead be affiliates of larger organizations. For example, the American Kennel Club (AKC) has a list of breeders that are accredited and who adhere to the strictest standards of the breed. It’s also a good idea to look for breed rescue organizations in your local area and contact them if you do not find what you’re looking for right away. Most breed rescues have rescue groups that work with owners of purebred dogs and cats of many different breeds. Contact the pet store where you’ve found your puppy or cat and ask if they are aware of any animal rescue groups in your area.
You should also get your puppy home checked out by a licensed veterinarian as soon as possible. A puppy can’t tell you everything it needs, nor can a vet, so it’s important to get these things from someone who knows about dogs and can help you figure out what’s going on. Your vet can give you important tips such as what food to give your puppy and how often to check its behavior, as well as identify early warning signs of certain illnesses. The vet may also be able to give you helpful advice on keeping your dog healthy, including when it’s a good idea to put him down and when it’s okay to let him go outside.
