I need the forum's help. I want to get another Chi puppy (milo needs a sister - or brother) but I've googled till my brain hurts trying to find a reputable breeder in Texas (or even in neighboring states). I found one good breeder of longcoats but I think I really want a shortcoat female as I want to minimize any issues since Milo has been the male dog of the house by himself for 5 years and I figure he will get along with another female pup first - and then later I can add others to teh family with less of an issue. Can anyone pm me or help me out? I tried the AKC website and it didn't help too much. I'm either finding puppies who don't look pure breed or puppy mills or the "teacup for 3k" variety. Can it really be this hard to find a reputable breeder? Did any of you find a breeder you liked and then have the pup shipped? I'd like to drive out and see the place if possible unless others have had success buying from a long distance breeder - then I might consider it. I just want to buy from a responsible breeder who loves their animals and don't want to contibuite to the puppy mills but am having a tough time weeding through them all. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!!
