Talk to several breeders and ask for references from people who have gotten their dogs. Not all dogs of one breed are similar. The differences may be bigger than between different breeds. If you like the looks of the breed, ask the breeders what they breed for. What you want to hear is details about temperament, health problems in the breed and how they are trying to avoid them, how they feed, train and exercise their dogs. Don't buy a dog if you can not meet the mother of the litter of if the breeder does not ask you a lot of questions and make you fill out an extensive questionnaire to make sure you can provide a good home. It's a sign they breed for money, not to improve the breed.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

We found a little half dead dog in the desert and he is all the above, active, playful, cuddly and such a delight. Be careful of puppy mills.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

Hello!

We are thinking about getting ourselfs a new dog. Previously we had a Bishon, a Silky and a Poodle. But now we want someone more active. However, the dog should be playfull and cudly. Do you have any experience how Kerry Blues are?
