Why is it so hard to buy a puppy?
Nowadays it’s hard to tell good breeders from bad. These hobby breeders can be difficult to find, mainly due to the anti-breeding mentality that unfairly places them in the same category as irresponsible breeders and puppy millers. Very few advertise and most only produce litters once or twice a year.
