GO!

Need some info on Boston Terrier health and breeders!

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

Hi wave

A friend of mine is seriously looking into getting a Boston pup. She is sure it's the breed she wants, but she was originally going to just look at Kijiji and other types of classifieds for a BYB-bred pup.
I told her to look into a reputable breeder and some reasons why it's important. She seemed interested, but I don't know much about the breed itself.

I would like to be able to give her some more information- like genetic issues common in the breed, which genetic health screenings should be given to the parents by the breeder, etc. I'm also wondering if there are any good breeders in Alberta, Canada I can refer her to. I found a bit of info here- if anyone wants to have a look and tell me what they think about the breeders? Please remove any spaces in the URLs.
