How to Recognize a Reputable Breeder
A reputable breeder will be involved in the Italian greyhound community with shows and events.
He or she will be willing to show you his dogs and will be happy to speak about the breed, explain you his or her breeding programs and goals.
A responsible breeder will be able to give you the puppy with the papers and a health guarantee.
Be prepared to answer some questions about you, your family and home conditions. Well meaning breeders want to place their dogs in the right families and be sure that the pup is the right match for you and your lifestyle.
Those puppies in the shop window look very tempting but a pet shop is not the best place where to purchase your pup.
Pet shop puppies are of uncertain origin and you don’t get any chance to meet the breeder and see the pup’s parents.
No serious breeders would ever give away puppies to be sold in a shop.
They might be coming from a puppy farm and might not have received proper socialization and health care.
If this wasn’t enough to discourage you, often pet shop puppies are grossly overpriced.
In puppy farms dogs are bred in poor conditions with no regard for the well-being of the animals.
The result are unhealthy pups of uncertain origin and with poor
socialization. The prices can be tempting but you might end up spending
in vet bills a lot more than what you saved.
Beware of anyone willing to send or deliver a puppy directly to your home. It might just be a way to prevent you from seeing the breeding facilities and the pup’s parents.
As for any breed, the choice of a reliable breeder is crucial to find a happy, healthy dog that will be a great companion for many years to come.
Check the ads, ask questions to the breeders and don’t take anything for granted.
Look for kennels in your area to visit the breeder before making any
decision. Don’t get carried away by enthusiasm and remember our
guidelines about responsible breeders.
