BYB... another option
I must be honest. I am looking for a Boston Terrier. My boyfriend has never owned a dog, so he is reluctant to get a rescue. I agree that puppy mills are the worst. I won;t even buy from a pet store, just in case.
But a CKC breeder can;t be the only solution either. In Quebec, there is only 1 CKC registered breeder here tat won;t have any litters available for about a year!
I don't want a show dog. I don't want to sign a contract. I don't want to pay 1500$ for a dog either. I understand the issues with byb, but for many people that would be the only solution.
That said, it would be nice if there was a network of backyard breeders who had good dogs raised in a beneficial social environment. I would rather go find a dog on a site like that. Alas, that isn't really an option.
