well, its been awhile since I've last posted. Unfortunately we lost our Roscoe at the early age of 7 in July. He had a hidden condition, dialated cardio-myopathy, that suddenly surfaced. Diagnosed on a Monday, July 9, passed in our arms at 6:37 the following morning. Needless to say, we are still devestated. Chief is taking it very hard as well. He really loved his brother.
I have a question for everyone, as we look for a new little guy. We really want to rescue, but the rescue group is taking FOREVER. So we are also looking at getting an older puppy from a breeder.
Is it a red flag when a breeder has older puppies (4 months), or just a sign of the economy? we have always rescued, so this is our first experience looking for a breeder. We are looking at older puppies since Chief is a still-exuberent 8 years old, so we want a pup who can match his energy without getting hurt haha.
Thank you all for any input!
