Every dog lover gets to a certain point in his life when buying a puppy comes natural.
Still we should know that the moment we decide to pick our puppy we must ask ourselves if the cute little thing we choose from the other puppies for sale will meet the expectations we have from our future four legged friend.
Do we want a large dog or a small dog, an active dog or one with a calm disposition?
The shops or owners offering dogs for sale will not tell you what kind of dog you want; so there a few things you have to consider before you go out to buy your future dog.
The first and most important thing before considering the puppies for sale displayed in front of you is to be informed about the race they belong to. It is better not to purchase the first dog that comes your way for it is not a wise choice even if you are buying the puppy from a known dog breeder.
It isn’t recommended either to buy a dog from a person who posted an ad with dogs for sale in the newspaper. It might look as the easiest solution but it can certainly prove a very bad choice as finance and dog’s history is concerned.
It is better to look for a dog breeder that does not breed more than two races and buy your puppy from a small dog kennel that will allow you to see the puppies with their mother so you will have an idea about how they will look when they grow up.
Under no circumstances should you agree that the puppies for sale should be brought to your house and if the people selling the puppies try to convince you to agree with that, move on and look further.
It is advisable not to buy the puppy from a pet shop unless the pet shop can provide you with reference about the puppy’s background.
Also if you are tempted by the “dogs for sale” ad you see while driving on the road, keep in mind to look for certain things before buying a puppy from such a place. The owners of such a kennel will invite you to see the puppies for sale and they will look very amiable and dog loving.
But keep in mind that if they come forward with lines like “the puppies’ mom is sick, so let us bring the puppies to you” you should ask to see the puppies in their environment and see how clean is the place they are sleeping and living in, before you make the purchase.
