I have to wonder what condition these puppies were kept in at this "breeders" house. Breeders that care for dogs properly Paper/pad train them as soon as the mother doesnt have to stimulate them to getthem to urinate/defecate. For health and sanatation reasons.
Did you see were the breeder dogs were kept? Did you get to look around in the breeders home and stay a while and talk?
