Breeder x Dog

Having a pet nowadays is increasingly a common behavior of people, especially in big cities, where they have had less and less opportunity to socialize with the  nature, in  most of the time the chosen animal is a dog.

It is precisely at the time of purchase that many people make a serious mistake: looking for price, they do not always acquire a pet in a suitable place and end up taking home a big problem!

The dog breeder selects these specimens and the perpetuation of the breed he creates depends on him and, therefore, he can guarantee the dog he created.

When this animal gets sick at the hand of the future owner, carrying and demanding treatment for years, the dog will not be the least bit worried, because his objective was only to sell dogs and not good dogs.

Therefore, when buying a purebred dog, value the dog breeder, who channels his forces in the sense of producing good dogs and who does not exploit them, does not breed his bitches to exhaustion, etc...
