Its very simple, look at what is happening to our breed in the US. Look at the condition and the life of dogs in the hands of most big breeders. I would much rather preffer one of my puppies be in a pet home than with a breeder, thus I sell predominantly to pet homes or once in a great while to small breeders with an approved breeding program. Most of my girls leave with limited reg. I have rescued a few dogs from other breeders; emaciated to the point of the fist stages of kidney/liver failure, kept in small crates in dirrect sunlight, dogs that were bought for $5,000 plus from europe. Look at PuppyFind.com and you will find a few 9-12month old females being sold already pregnant. Thus to k9sar06. It is entirely up to a breeder to decide whether the puppies they produce or the dogs they sell are placed with limited, full or no papers at all. Its something everyone should do. Look at the Corgi breed, almost ALL puppies from responsible breeders are sold already spayed/nuetered or with no AKC until fixed. Those puppies are still priced at $1,000 and up. And to get a puppy with full reg., you usually have to co-own with the breeder and have to have developed a relationship with them.
