We got Lola from a breeder on puppyfind.com when I was a college student. I also at time didn't know about quality dog food, holistic vets, reputable breeders, ect. I thought all breeders were the same! And we only paid $325 for her.
Then we rescued mojo from a rescue in Indianapolis, his previous owner bought him and his brother a gifts for her 2 and 3 year old kids and realized that was a mistake.
Finally we found Leo from a very reputable breeder about 5 hours away. The breeder I was initially interested in (lots of people from my local chi club meetup have bought from her) didn't have any pups but told me her friend in southern Indiana did, which is how I found Leo!!
