Sassy - you are so right - I was very overwhelmed, so I did not exactly examine the playpens. She did not show me the parents - that is a good sigh, no?were the pens clean? were the dogs clean? she didnt show you the parents in person. I agree with the above post that to the average person walking into a dog breeders home can be very overwhelming . The normal person feels wierd in a home of 20 plus pets.
However, the puppy I was considering did smell a bit like urine. She definitely needed a bath. After leaving that place I used a ton of purell... -_-
What I am thinking is the following - the puppy is 7months old and has a really pretty face, 4 lbs...was supposed to be a show dog. The dark tear stains do bother me a lot however... Just don't know...
I say you should look around! I mean why not visit a few more breeders just to be sure. You will have this dog for next 15+ yrs so you should be happy with your choice and not have any doubts.
