Finding and choosing the right puppy can be a real challenge.
Here are a few things to look for and avoid:

“Objective studies by ethologists show that vital animal imprinting begins in hour one of life.  That puppies who are bonded to humans during both the neonatal (1-2 weeks) and transitional (3 weeks) period respond by developing faster mentally and physically.  They also exhibit greater confidence throughout the entire socialization period.”
The Joyous Havanese by Kathryn Braund

This being the case, it is vitally important to know all you can about the breeders practices, socialization, diet, nursery, care etc.  Who you choose is as important as which dog you choose.  Ask questions! 
Millions of puppy buyers purchase puppies who have been adversely imprinted during their early weeks, causing behavioral problems that are not seen sometimes till after 5 months or until an adult.  They can be difficult to live with and extremely hard to train.  Our dog pounds are full of these unwanted pets, through no fault of their own.

What is a Puppy Mill ...
(by definition)

- Puppy mills are breeding facilities that produce purebred puppies in large numbers. The puppies are sold either directly to the public via the Internet, newspaper ads, at the mill itself, or are sold to brokers and pet shops across the country.

- A place where several breeds of dogs are raised and the breeder always has puppies for sale.

- A dirty, trashy place where one or several breeds of dogs are kept in deplorable conditions and puppies are always available.

- A place where a single breed of dog is raised in acceptable conditions and puppies are always available.

- A place where lots of dogs are raised, where breeding is done solely for financial gain rather than protection of breed integrity, and where puppies are sold to brokers or pet stores.

Buyer beware, you usually get what you pay for!
