The price being $200.00 tells me that these aren't from a quality bloodline. Sometimes you get what you pay for. I know to some people $200.00 is a lot of money for a dog, but when you look for quality it will cost a lot more then that.
I find it strange that the breeder would guarantee health for 5 years! When obviously there is a problem with the bloodline. Are they even AKC? If so there are standards that need to be met.
Were you able to see any hip ratings or health records for parents? Is there a pedigree available I could look at or what kind of bloodline? Do you know the age of the parents?
