Does she have a website or anything we could look at? What breed does she deal with?

She breeds alot of different breeds.. But if she does have the liter I would be going to the house and seeing where the puppies lived and all of that. I couldn't find a good chihuahua breeder though any referals?

If she's breeding lots of different breeds, she's at best a BYB, possibly a small mill. DO NOT BUY FROM HER.

Keep in mind that to find a good breeder, you may have to buy a plane ticket to go pick up the puppy in another state. RD just did that a month ago with her new Border Collie puppy, because the best breeder for what she was looking for in a dog was on the East Coast and RD lives in Arizona. So don't just go with what's closest. Small breeds are notoriously long-lived, so you want to make sure to get a good one!

Gah, I just looked at the website. Total BYB. None of her dogs have any titles and most look to be really poor examples of their breeds. The Poms especially. No mention of genetic health testing.

Okay.. well I'm gonna go keep searching. The Border Collie on the east cost do you know if they were in central MA or around there? My neighbor has two gorgeous girls from ths woman who is elderly but a great breeder.

I suggest you pick exactly what dog you are looking for before getting into the details of breeder just yet. If you really truly don't care and just want a small companion dog, please reconsider breed rescue or Petfinder. You can find some amazing dogs through rescue, even puppies sometimes.

I'm looking for either a pom or chihuahua.. I've spent hours searching for breeders.. I've become so paranoid about people shipping puppies and puppy mills and backyard breeders. I think the best way to go is through referal from someone who has had personal experience with someone.

I'm sure you must be able to find something in the Mass. area--have you contacted any rescue organizations? Once they know what you are interested in, they can match you to a dog.
