  How To Select A Serious Westie Breeder

Step Two - Know the breeder

Reputable breeders are more than happy to tell you about their dogs, environment and breeding conditions.

  • Puppies for sale are born on the premises - not shipped in.
  • Breeder does not sell puppies to wholesalers, brokers, dealers or retail shops.
  • All puppies are sold with spay/neuter contract and limited registration unless for show.
  • Dog set up is clean and well kept.
  • Breeder insists that the puppies for sale will be at least eight weeks old before being placed.
  • Sire and dam of the litter are at least two years old and were tested for genetic health before the breeding.
  • Breeder volunteered information on the health testing of most of the immediate relatives of the sire and dam, volunteered proof and offers a guarantee against genetic health problems of at least two years. (Note: It isn't possible to produce dogs entirely free of genetic problems.)
  • Puppies for sale and dogs for sale have been introduced to children and other animals as part of their socialization.
  • Breeder reviewed some of the problems some people have with the breed.
  • Breeder asked if you plan to breed the dog.
  • Breeder is available as a resource for advice and support for the life of the dog.
  • Breeder promises to take the dog in (not return your money) if you can't keep it, for the life of the dog.
  • Breeder provides a contract for your review and goes over it with you.
  • Breeder raises no more than 2 different breeds of puppies for sale and dogs for sale. It is very difficult for a breeder to be competent in more breeds.
  • Breeder is a member of a breed club.
  • Breeder's primary concern is finding a good home for the puppy, rather than getting paid.
  • Breeder asked you lots of questions about your lifestyle, family, experience with dogs and other pets, why you are looking for a dog for sale.
  • Breeder was happy to answer all your questions and made you feel comfortable asking for advice.

Step three - Know what you are getting with your puppy
