That is why we should always make sure to educate people about puppy mills and why not to purchase a dog from a pet shop or a BYB breeder. Alot of people don't even know what a puppy mill is. My parents didn't! At least not until I learned about it a few years back and informed them. Those BYB breeders and puppy mill farms do a great job at keeping themselves hidden from the public. That's why we have to let people know where these dogs are coming from.

I know there's a puppymill webside for Ontario (I'm sure every province and state has SOMETHING similar though). The website contains great information and has dates for when people meet up in front of a pet shop and do a demonstration, hand out flyers about puppy mills, and so on. Its a great idea and something some of you might want to plan.

That was pretty helpful info. Pet stores really should be held acounted for alot of negect and abuse they cause. Shelters are the best idea. Adopt! adopt! adopt!
My two pups are adopted and they are the super best friends in the world.

I bought my puppy from a breeder, who was probably not very good. We met with them once to see if we liked the puppy that we bought. We met them at a park a few minutes away from their home. They brought with them our puppy and the puppy's mother. Our puppy was really skinny, which they told us that since they fed the dogs three at a time he usually got the least amount of food because he was so docile and didn't want to fight. He also had a really bad dandruff problem (which went away right away when we gave him a bath). All around he is a healthy dog though just had a rough patch with them. I'm glad we got him he is the sweetest most funniest dog you will meet. I think that the breeders had really good intentions and wanted to do the right thing for the puppies.

A Scots JRT! I like that. My sister's JRT, Braec, came from Ireland, and there is so much difference between Braec and the JRTs I see around here. Mostly people have gone to the long-legged, non-workiing line here. The AKC has dubbed them "Parson Russell Terriers" to differentiate them from the old fashioned shorts. Braec's got the true Terrier temperament, which I'm seeing less and less of as they become more popular.

You just get a better feeling on how they look like when they get older and temperant.
And also paper work on all the shots and if records that their tails are dock. Some breeder will tell you that their tells are dock but they aren't.
Yeah, I think just getting a t-cup is a risky thing in itself as alot of t-cup breeders are just doing it for the money.

As far as the parents go, in general, its doesn't necessrely mean the breeder is bad if they don't have both parents on site. Some breeders only own the dam and found a stud for service. Others may have co-owned the sire and he is away finnishing he championship. While still others own both and the sire is away in show or preparing for it. Those are all exceptable reasons to not have the sire on site. But if it isn't any of those reasons and he just isn't there and the breeder doesn't have a copy of his pedigree and pictures to show of him/won't tell you about his personality then beware.
