So, you want a puppy? Don't worry, we're not going to try to talk you out of it. We generally don't get puppies in rescue, so our objective is to try to help you find a quality pup from a reputable breeder. We've done some research and we have a short list of Wisconsin breeders to whom we refer potential puppy buyers (sorry, we do not have lists for other states - Wisconsin only!) Please contact us if you'd like a breeder referral. Breeder referrals will be given by email only - no phone calls, please.
The best guide we've seen to help folks understand the difference between a backyard breeder and a reputable breeder is here. Please read this guide - it is very thorough and helpful!
Remember, a reputable breeder cares about the betterment of the breed. If you talk to a breeder who seems concerned only about whether your check will clear, be careful.
And whatever you do, please do not purchase a puppy from a pet store! Regardless of what that pet store manager may try to tell you, the dogs come from puppymills, pure and simple. You are not saving the dog - you are making room for another one and lining the puppymillers' pockets with cash. Please, don't be a part of that.
Do lots of research before purchasing a puppy. One of our favorite sites for learning about the breed is BoxerWorld.
