Hello,

I'm looking for a puppy near Illinois. I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for more affordable breeders as in less than $1200. I want to know if you've gotten a puppy from them and if you feel like they were trustworthy and gave you a healthy puppy.

Also, could you give me your thoughts on this posting for a puppy?

I have found some pretty sketchy people on puppy find. However, I can't find anything on these people. The post says Edward and Malinda but when I emailed I got a reply from Janie Weaver.

Thank You. Any help at all will be appreciated.

In this case, no news is NOT good news.

Good breeders post the registered name of the Sire and the Dam

Good breeders post the link to the pedigree.

Good breeders post the link to the clearances of the Sire and the Dam.

Good breeders obtain some sort of titles on most of the ancestors and post them.

I do not know these people at all but their ad gives you no useful information about the puppy that you are purchasing.

As for your price point - if you want to buy a well bred, quality puppy, from parents with titles and health clearances - then you are too low. Save up for a few more months until you get to the 1500-2000 range.

Good Luck
