Hi ladies.  My family wants to purchase a puppy.  The dog they want is a bulldog, and we found a cute one, but it's health guarantee is only for like 5 days!  You can get a puppy in the mall with a year guarantee!  Everyone who I talk to says that is crazy, but I also have heard that a good breeder does not need a long guarantee as they will stand behind their dog no matter what.  If any of you have bought a dog with a health gurantee, does this seem odd?  Should I run, or not?  TIA

I only adopt dogs from animal shelters, so I have no advice for you.

Yikes,no way. I like a mutt from the shelter. Puppies are too much work for me.

Only if you plan on taking him to the vet for a full checkup and blood work the next day.

We get our pets from the shelter, and they don't come with guarantees.  Enjoy your new pet!  :)

Thanks ladies! We are still on the fence and would adopt but when you are looking for a particular breed its hard, especially since most breed specific rescues will not let us adopt because of the kids

I would adopt from an animal shelter - not a breeder, pet store or puppy mill.

I would never adopt a puppy from the mall, they get their puppies from puppy mills.  The best dogs are found at the shelter or through a rescue.  And if you want a guarantee, buy a mechanical dog.  Dogs are living breathing entities would you expect a guantee of good health for your children?  Would you want to return them when they got sick?
