Kennel Clubs

If you are looking to buy a purebred puppy as opposed to adopting a purebred animal, please do not support puppy mills and backyard breeders. Your best source, locally, is to contact a local kennel club and ask them to refer you to a reputable breeder — someone who is breeding healthy animals with good temperaments and that match the breed description for that type of animal.
