Hi. This is my first question, I've just joined the forum. We are looking at getting a puppy and I know sadly there are unscrupulous people out there. I want to make sure I don't fall for anyone dodgy and get a happy, healthy puppy. I know some questions I need to ask, like making sure I see the puppy with mum, not taking the puppy until at least 8 weeks. But how do I know who to buy from? And are they any questions that are a must ask? We are looking at a cross between a Maltese and a shih tzu (I know some people don't care for cross breeds but we have researched this part of it and are happy with the choice) I'm still researching to make sure we do everything right and am not planning to get a puppy until the summer. Thanks for any advice.
