Getting a Toller Puppy
As a puppy buyer, you should carefully research breeders and their
dogs. Tollers are a rare breed and thus far there is a
greater demand for Tollers than the number produced each year.
Be an informed buyer. Understand the commitment you will be making.
Ask the breeder of any litter you consider about
the goals of their breeding program; ask why they paired the parents of
this litter and about titles the parents have earned. Make sure that
both parents have been x-rayed for hip dysplasia and eyes checked for
progressive retinal atrophy and cleared of other major inherited eye
Sometimes people get pups within a very short time, but often times
they have to wait a long time.
Keep in mind that it may be better to
wait for a pup until you feel you and the breeder have a good
connection and feel they will be there for you and your needs. Be willing to search beyond your backyard to find the right breeder.
When you acquire a puppy from a responsible breeder, you also
acquire support throughout the lifetime of your puppy.
