Q1. Are the parents of the pup ‘certified’?

Certain breeds could be at a risk for genetic issues such as heart problems, and hip problems.

You will be answered for the following:

Are they aggressive, well-adjusted, or shy?

Q4. Have the pups been socialized?

Q5. Are the puppies vaccinated?

How many shots have they received. Are there any pending round of shots?

Q6. Have the pups undergone deworming?

Q13. What is the family history of the puppy?

Get updated from your breeder about whatever information he has about the breed line. An example her: You can ask about the longevity of that typical breed. Ensure to note down this important piece of information somewhere as this will help you in monitoring about your pet’s health as they grow old.

Q14. What food are the puppies being fed currently?
