Hi and welcome! One important word of advice that I know many here will echo -- PLEASE don't get a dog either from the internet or the papers or any small ads sites. These will be backyard breeders and brokers of puppy farm dogs of very questionable background and potentially, very poor health. So many here have greatly regretted not taking the time to find a dog from a good breeder. A good breeder will sometimes have older puppies or young adults they have run on but decided not to show -- typically 6-8 months to young adult age.

We have lots of advice for finding a good breeder the Library section and depending on where you are based, people here may be able to privately suggest some reputable, health focused breeders. We have a UK breeder member who might have suggestions too. :)

There are quite serious and costly health issues in this breed so finding a reputable breeder is of great importance. Be sure to review the health issues in the breed (pinned to the Health section of the Library) so you know what to look out for. :thmbsup:

I, too, will echo what Karlin said about buying from the internet. My husband and I did and based on the few issues we've had, we are worried what more "might" come about.

Welcome to the board! You will simply adore these pups. :luv: They are the greatest in the world! I can't believe how much I love these two babies of mine! :lotsaluv:
