I only took note of the subject a year ago.
In general, this can be made up of the condition of the dog, the parents and the papers, but also before the purchase there are indicators that suggest a puppy farm.
The rule of thumb is: “Finger away from Ebay” but also other sales portals should be enjoyed with caution.There, a lot of people are scrambling around the fast money. It is best to stay away from it and avoid pity purchases.
Most people who sell puppies commercially will want to give you the puppies quickly without getting any real information from you and especially give vague answers to questions.For most people, the all-arm bells should be ringing now.
Of course, it may be that you also come across decent people where the litter originated accidentally and these now have to give up the puppies.But these people will be much more forward-thinking and will usually give information of yourself, as well as of yourself and the animals.
It is best to ask about the parents and pay attention to their condition and behaviour.Normally there should be no problem to inspect and visit them, also to look at the puppies. Here one should also pay attention to the behaviour of the mother and the handling of its litter.
Ask calmly the age of the mother and her how much litter it was.Young should not become mothers for the umpteenth time.
If it was immediately possible to buy without a visit to the puppy, watch out for how the animal was kept.
Was the animal simply brought to you and taken out of the suitcase after you had paid for it?
Could they choose the animal or were they simply handed it out?
Here again the question of the parent animals, as well as the handling of the sibling and above all the health condition.
This includes, above all, age.No puppy should be delivered before the 8-week! Some say that the puppy should be separated from the mother only in the 9 or even 10 week.
As a rule, you sit down with the owner and discuss everything in peace.Information is obtained about the vaccinations, whether the animal has been snipped (should usually be the case) and also other papers as well as indications of feeding times, port size ect. And also whether one should have the animal tested for certain diseases due to family or race-typical predispositions.
Once the puppy has been at home, one can only insure its origin because of its behaviour.Ideally, the puppy has had many experiences. Both in the house with different household conditions (vacuum cleaner, sphery, TV, etc.), as well as possibly with other animals or children.
If your animal doesn’t know the last two points, it’s half as wild.However, if the household items are all foreign or the animal has strange marrots, this can be a sign that it comes from a puppy farm, respectively. very poorly socialised.
A responsible breeder stays in contact with you and also takes care of the puppy’s welfare afterwards.
This also applies to private “sellers”.
To good value, the price also plays a role.
If you get your animal from a breeder, he will adhere to certain requirements of the breeding association.Here there are also black sheep so quietly have the information checked.
In the case of offers from private persons, the price fluctuates but these will still want to cover the vet costs.So it’s worth comparing the prices here to get a sense of how much is spent on a race.
You should leave your fingers off schnapps!
