I suggest you look into adopting a puppy. :) Do you have dog shelters there?

I guess it is different here in NY, because I worked at a shelter and we numerous purebreds for adoption. Name a breed, I probably adopted it out. Unless it was owner surrendered, there were no pedigree papers.

I'm frankly not impressed. No titles or health certifications on any of the dogs on the "breedings" page.

OFA and/or PennHip are basic, and quite standard, certifications and should be done on any and all breeding stock in my opinion. And "xrays looked at by a vet" is not the same thing.

There aren't even basic performance or even conformation titles listed.

I don't know much about the titles and health testing for breeding, etc. But I can tell you about aesthetics and presentation and I wasn't impressed with the way the presented themselves on their website. Most of the pictures of the dogs are candid shots, unflattering, etc. There are some better ones, but I think if you're going to be serious about this business and you're going to make a website, you really need to put your best foot forward and do 110%. This is your first impression to so many people. When it looks sloppy, it makes you look sloppy.

Renee breeds WAY too damn much. She is a nice person and has some very nice dogs but she has bred some dogs that later were found to have health problems that could have been avoided. Plus she has given dogs to people who should NEVER have had them, for example 3 intact dogs to an 17 year old drug addict living in a apartment. Her dogs are bred to work, they are drivey and I do like her type of dog but if it were ME I would keep looking. There are PLENTY of pure bred dogs and puppies in shelters but if you chose to go with a breeder ( and I personally do not fault you for that) there are a better breeders out there. Do some research, ask questions, get to know the breeder & find someone you like and trust. Someone who you wouldnt mind being friends with because quality breeders have an interest in their puppies lives and wil want to keep tabs on their puppies. Take your time and you wont be sorry down the line. Look past the cute wiggly puppy and look into the ancestors and you will find your perfect family member.
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

I am a fan of rescue, and all of my guys (two dogs and two cats) are rescues. However, I do believe there are many valid reasons for wanting to go to a breeder, such as health testing, etc. I do think that you need to be certain that if you are going to a breeder, you need to make sure you are getting the benefits of a good breeder. I may get slammed for this, but I am going to a breeder for my next dog, since it is a rare breed that doesn't come up in rescue, and there are sports I'd like to explore that don't accept mixes.
I'm not faulting you for wanting to go with a breeder, but there are SO MANY bullies who need homes. If you go with a breeder who isn't doing a lot of testing, isn't titling their dogs, etc., then you may as well go with a rescue...which I encourage you to look again at doing anyway. Is there a particular reason you are looking for a pure bred dog?
For lurkers, I also wanted to add that papers and "pure bred" doesn't mean quality in any breed. All it means is that the parents were registered members of the breed, not that they were quality in any way. I could breed a pure bred lab with horrible defects, hip dysplasia, a bad temperament, etc. to my neighbor's lab with defects, hip dysplasia, and a bad temperament and they would be "pure bred, papered" dogs.

I have no problem with someone who wants to purchase a dog from a responsible breeder. Just be aware that most responsible breeders don't have puppies all the time and there is usually a lengthy wait time before you may get a puppy.

I would just like to point out that most rare breed clubs do have rescues, and responsible breeders also get returns, etc. Not that there is a problem with going to a breeder, but just wanted to comment.

Excellent point!!! There is SO much that breed registries could do to improve the breeds, but they don't bother because it would affect the bottom line.

I know, and it is a very good point. I was on the list for a dog with the Toller breed group back before I got Nittany. I'm looking at a Danish/Swedish Farmdog right now, and there are less than 300 in the country. I know the president of the national breed club through a lot of communication, and she knows I would be maybe be interested if a rescue come up. She is actually the breeder I'd go to if I get one, and I've been on her waiting list for over a year now.

Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever? There is a breeder that I know pretty well in my area. They show in conformation, obedience, rally and field trials.

See, this I don't get. Why should you get slammed for going to a responsible breeder especially when you are looking for a dog to work? Makes no sense to me. I mean really, rescue or be slammed? That seems silly.

I'm not saying rescues aren't worthwhile dogs, far from that actually. I've owned rescues and purebreds and I will end up doing both again I am sure. Both have their pros and cons and everyone has their reasons for which they would prefer. I understand not liking someone's decision to purchase a dog from a BYB or from stock that has not been tested. But what's wrong with getting a dog from a responsible breeder?
