ALL puppies are cute and adorable - But will they stay that way? Selection of a reputable breeder is the MOST important step you can take to ensure a wonderful, healthy and loving pet. Veterinary care is expensive and your new dog will be with you for the next 10-15 years. Now is not the time to look for a bargain! There are always some health issues within each breed. NO breed or line is completely free of inherited health problems. Responsible breeders try to avoid inherited defects by researching pedigrees and screening parents for health and temperament issues BEFORE breeding each litter.
Buying a QUALITY puppy from health tested parents and champion lines, will assure the puppy will be healthier then buying from a pet shop, back yard breeder or puppy mill. Reputable breeders do NOT place puppies for sale in pet shops.
What you should ask when calling breeders:
Is the mother or father on the premises? One parent should always be available for you to meet
What health testing has been done? Go to www.lagottous.com for a complete list (copies of all testing should be given to you when you purchase your puppy)
How old are the parents? They should not be under 18 months old
To protect the breed, our companion puppies are adopted with a limited registration from the American Kennel Club (AKC). They are also microchipped with an AKC Reunite microchip prior to leaving for their new homes. On a limited registration puppies are still eligible for rally, obedience and therapy dog activities.
Unsure whether to adopt a male or female? The sex of a puppy should not be an issue - When spayed or neutered, both male and female Lagotto make equally great companions. Both are very loyal.
