Westies for Sale - Avoiding the Perils of Purebred Puppy Purchases
In the purebred West Highland Terrier puppy market, there are few rules or laws governing who may breed dogs, and then
advertise Westies for sale. Both ancestry and the breeding environment will affect the quality of the Westies offered for
sale, and some breeders are a lot less careful about these details than others. Never buy the first Westie you find, from
the first breeder you come across advertising Westies for sale. Take the time to learn about both the breed and the breeder to
avoid an expensive mistake, and the heart-breaking loss of a dog due to health problems.
Because of the inbreeding required to produce specific size, shape, talents, and coats, all pure breeds are prone to genetic
defects. Westies offered for sale in the purebred market are no different. First educate yourself about the health problems that
often occur in Westies, and then be prepared to question the sellers about the steps they have taken to avoid them. Westies
for sale from a conscientious breeder will come with clear records of their ancestry up to three to four generations, and
will often have undergone genetic testing to find possible defects.
'Backyard Breeders' are individuals who purchase Westies with the plan to breed them at home, and then offer Westie puppies for
sale to offset their expenses. 'Puppy Mills' breed their dogs with the goal of having each bitch produce as many Westies for
sale in the least possible amount of time. Neither type of breeder is likely to know or care about the eventual health of
the dogs they offer for sale. The Westies for sale at pet stores, or other retail establishments, usually come from one of these
sources. All three should be avoided. There are home breeders who are avid hobbyists, and are conscientious about the dogs they
breed. There are also respectable kennels that ensure that the Westies they offer are well cared-for. Westies for sale from these sources are what you are looking for.
Westie puppies for sale from a reliable breeder will not be timid or shy, small or sickly, or under eight weeks old. They
will have their papers, shots, worming, and be well-socialized. The Westie breeder should provide references, a warranty contract against defects, and even advice about care.
West Highland Terrier Breeders who have been conscientious about the breeding and care of the Westies they offer for sale
will not hesitate to let you take the puppy to a veterinarian for a preliminary checkup. They have done their jobs well, and have nothing to hide.
There are many reputable kennels, and knowledgeable hobbyist breeders who love their Westies, and will want the puppies and
dogs they offer for sale to go to a good home. Good breeders will ask you as many questions as you ask them. If they want to know
if you have a fence, if the Westie will be left alone during the day, or if you have raised other dogs, don't be offended. These
are the breeders who care enough to give your Westie puppy a good start in life.
