For the first time in my life I have decided to get 2 dogs from a breeder because I want puppies. I have never done this before, all of our dogs have been shelter adoptees and re-homed dogs from people who were considering taking them to the shelter. We lost our precious Buckeye on 1/25/11 after he suffered smoke damage to his lungs due to a house fire and on 6/26/11 we lost our beloved Daisy due to mammary cancer. We had had Buckeye for 10 years and almost 2 mos., he was a shelter rescue & we had Daisy for just a couple of days over 9 years, she was adopted at 4 mos. old from a woman who found her on the side of the road in a box. Both were awesome dogs and their loss is being felt so hard right now.. We have 3 other dogs of our own....a Yorkie who is almost 9 (a rescue who has been with us since he was approx. 2 mos. old), a Silkie who is 4 (re-homed & with us for 2 1/2 years) and a Lab/Boxer mix who is 3 1/2 (a shelter rescue & with us since she was 4 mos. old) and we have a 1yo Pom/Yorkie mix who we are fostering. We would like to add 2 new dogs to our family soon after we move back in to our home (which is being rebuilt because of the house fire in Jan., we should be back in by the end of Aug..) and we have decided that this time we want to get puppies and we want to go through a breeder (we have fallen for this little Pom/Yorkie mix and want to get 2 Pom/Yorkie puppies). I expect negative feed back from this choice, I myself have been 100% pro-rescues for years but this time, I want to start with new to the world puppies because that's just the route I want to take this time.yway...I know nothing of looking for a breeder, what questions to ask, etc. and that's what I am asking here. For those who are breeders or who have bought from breeders....what should we look for, ask and expect from a breeder?
