Looking to import? Well here is a few things you should know before you go that route. Many times, there are breeders that prey on people who are clearly naive and have no idea what they're doing.
These kinds of breeders are producing subpar puppies that not only are off standard, but also have shady pedigrees. Some kennels will ship dogs underage to get them out of their kennel quicker. They will typically export them out of their country because serious enthusiast are not interested in their bloodlines.
There are some known puppymills that are producing dogs in mass quantities to supply a 'demand'. In reality of this, anyone new in the breed should seek a mentor to help guide them. And they should get an idea on how to read a pedigree to figure what will be the best choice of dog them.
