The lock down of the Country brought us all not only a huge challenge with isolation, fear and uncertainty - we breeders are suddenly flooded with puppy enquiries.
Before you decide to bring a puppy into your family please ask yourself some questions:
1. Are you willing to commit for the next 12 to 15 years to give a dog a loving and caring home, fulfil all his needs with regards food, walks, vet visits etc.
2. Will you be in the position to maintain the bills that will occur during the life time of your dog, food, equipment, vet costs
3. Who is looking after the half matured puppy once everyone goes (hopefully) back to normal - schools, offices, work place. Will there be somebody at home after the Covid lock down and take care of the youngster?
4. Are you willing to wait for a puppy from a reputable breeder?
If you can answer all this questions with YES - then - and only then - find a reputable breeder or drop one of the breed clubs an email with your request
