We hope that via these pages are some of the answers to the many questions you will have. We can dispel some of the myths and clarify important issues regarding the many health tests that responsible breeders perform on their breeding stock and what the results mean to you and your puppy.

The choice of puppy should not be made on the spur of the moment, doing so can lead to heartache and financial disaster. Research the breed, the breeder and take your time over the decision. We've put together some tips and information which may help when searching for your puppy.
