Yes, that was it. We were just trying to put our priorities in line when choosing a breeder. And the topic of warranties came up. Beyond gender, size, color, location etc...etc...etc...:?
It seems hip testing and a full warranty against genetic health problems mostly will determine if a breeder is considered reputble. Including sale price refund.
We've had HD in our dogs in the past. Both shelter dogs. The main reason we are willing to spend major $ with a breeder and do major research, is we cannot afford to live through that again.
Why wouldnt all breeders test every parent and cover a full warranty if there are genetic issues that are either super slim, or could have been prevented?
They are making a living doing this right :roll:
