jdarling Posted September 11, 2007 Report Share Posted September 11, 2007 I’m sure you all remember this thread. http://www.bordercollie.org/boards/index.p...=12467&st=0 Then there was this thread. http://www.bordercollie.org/boards/index.p...mp;#entry172417 Where the OP stated: Well I posted here months ago about my interest in a BC and after long and hard thought I decided to purchase one. The guy I chose is now 11 weeks old and will be nearly 12 weeks old when I get him. You guys warned me, encouraged me, and enlightened me. This is the breeder chosen: Misty Meadows Farm Brandy's pups: born May 26th 2007--- 1 male left (black and white) Available now! Price reduced. Now $250 until he begins herding training, then the price for Buddha will go up accordingly. Misty loves to herd our horses and Glenn enjoys herding also. They are registerable International Border Collie Association. I’m thinking that perhaps we need to fix the way we “warn” people, “encourage” them, and “enlighten” them, because if this is where he went after all of our advice … yikes! Perhaps we should make a FAQ’s page on finding a puppy and include links to various conversation on topics such as: Information on the “International Border Collie Association” http://www.bordercollie.org/boards/index.php?showtopic=10851 http://www.bordercollie.org/boards/index.p...ost&p=65691 Information on “breeders” that have been banned from the American Border Collie Association: http://www.americanbordercollie.org/news.htm#Dicipline (If the parents of the puppy you’re looking at have any of these names in their pedigrees, run like the wind!) Etc… (OP, I don't mean to pick on you specifically because most of us have done something similar our first time around. I'm trying to get to the method behind which we give information for people to consider when looking for a pup.) Jodi Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
