Where do you find the Pointer puppy that’s perfect for you?
Responsible Pointer breeders work hard to produce puppies who are healthy and well socialized. When evaluating a breeder, learn about their breeding philosophy, dogs, and litter. Prepare a list of questions and expectations to ask when you speak on the phone or meet in person. Expect your breeder to interview you as a potential puppy buyer and ask questions about your home environment, other pets, and experience with dogs.
Remember, both you and your breeder want you to find a healthy and happy dog who matches your lifestyle and will be your companion for many years to come.
