Find Your Dogfather
A good breeder is essential to your puppy search.
Why is finding an experienced, reputable breeder important? “You’ll probably get a better dog, with regard to temperament, health, and conformation,” answers Marge Morris who has been breeding Ibizan Hounds for eight years in New Port Richey, Fla. “You’ll also have a valuable mentor for the entire life of your pet.”
Like a benevolent “Dogfather,” a fabulous breeder isn’t just the source of a healthy puppy. He’s a font of wisdom for all things puppy, and he may be a she. In the short term, your Dogfather can answer your questions regarding the breed and puppy raising, as well as match you to the best puppy. In the long term, he’ll provide guidance and support for years to come. He may even become a lifelong friend.
