There is nothing wrong with getting the dog you want. Should you choose to go through a breeder, just make sure you're going to a reputable one. The one you've described in your original post does not sound reputable at all - I would stay away from those that advertise on CL and kijiji. Good breeders have waiting lists for their pups even before the litter hits the ground.
