Help learning about breeders (KS & MO area)
Trying to do research on my own but could use some assistance. Would appreciate any info on what breeders to avoid in the KS and Mo area. I am only looking for a family companion....temperment, health and training ability are things we are interested in. No interest in shows, competitions or breeding. I see the mention of "red flags" on this forum but don't know what they are. Should all dogs that cost under 2k and don't descend from distinguished champion bloodlines be avoided? If dog's parents are health tested, listed on ofa.org, and all dogs preregistered with health guarantee...is that not enough? I just want to clarify what makes a breeder a bad breeder? Seems like one's person's "BYB" is another's respected breeder (assuming no bad reputation, overbreeding, etc). Is there some BBB site for breeders where people file complaints and perspective buyers can investigate? The more I research the more overwhelmed I feel.
Thank you in advance.
