We are a small hobby breeder dedicated to the health and preservation of the Spanish Water Dog and Hungarian Pumi Located in New England
Most often, a good reputable breeder has interest in one or two breeds. The purpose of their breeding program is to continually strive to bring their bloodlines closest to the breed standard. A reputable breeder spends a great deal of time, effort and money showing their dogs, socializing their dogs, having their breeding dogs tested for genetic defects, and being very careful to place their puppies in permanent, loving homes. They spend countless hours developing their breeding plan and always strive to improve the genetic base.
A reputable breeder wants to know about you and develop a relationship with you. They enjoy updates and photographs of their puppies as they grow and are always available to help with any questions or concerns about their puppies. Many breeders are dependent on your feedback to determine if their breeding plans are on the right track. One of the most important things to know is that a reputable breeder has nothing to hide. They want you to meet the parents of the puppies and see the environment the puppies are raised in. A reputable breeder will at any time for any reason, take any of the puppies they’ve bred back into their care for the lifetime of the dog, taking full responsibility for the dogs that they have produced.
We believe there are many reputable breeders out there, doing a fine job of raising healthy and sound puppies. But buyers must do their homework. Visit the breeder, meet the parents of the puppies, inspect the environment the puppies were raised in, ask lots of questions and if it feels like they’re hiding something, they probably are and you’d be best served to move on. Please be very careful when choosing your Spanish Water Dog or Hungarian Pumi. We firmly believe you should choose who you want to work with first, then work on finding the perfect fit for you and your family.
