Well, still no Sheltie in the house. Wife did adopt a rescue pup, but we still want a sheltie. I've been looking around to find the names of breeders within driving distance of our city, and plan to contact a couple at the beginning of the week. We've never had a formal conversation with a licensed breeder before, so I'm not sure what questions I should be asking. I'm sure this has been asked before, but could members suggest the sorts of questions we should ask the breeder? I want to make sure we deal with someone reputable and good with the dogs, and also try to make reasonably sure that we ask the right questions to get a pup that's likely to be healthy and also treated well. Heard some horror stories over the years, and left to my own devices, I'll end up not asking some of the right questions. This has probably been asked before, so if someone wants to link me to an old thread, that'd be great too Thanks.
