NW_MONTANA_BC Posted July 22, 2018 Report Share Posted July 22, 2018 In my exuberance to replace my last border collie, I probably made a bad mistake. After purchasing my BC puppy I have found out the the breeder has been on the top 4 spots on the high volume breeder list 4 years in a row. Two of the last 2 years she has been in the number 2 spot in the nation. Boy, have I screwed up or what! Though I love my puppy and he seems healthy, all kind of things have been going though my head now. What got me looking was the puppies mother was all Import bred, and I wasn't sure if that was good or bad. Then I was looking up the rest of what it said about the parents Full Panel Normal for CEA, DM, IGS, MDR1, TNS, NCL/NCL5 and SN. So all of these pups will be Full Panel Normal By Parentage. All pups will be ABCA Registered, vet checked, come with all shots and wormings up to date per age, heartworm prevention Seeing this person has registered 75 puppies or more for the last 4 years I don't believe she could be consider a reputable breeder, and the high volume breeder list only goes through 2016 so she may be registering more the last couple of years. Can you really trust a breeder like this? I mean do they have all their shots and stuff and is what is being said about the parents true? It seems to me this is nothing more than a BC puppy mill with the end goal "money in their pocket" though I could be wrong. How is this allowed though the ABCA Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
