Recent breeder visit
My wife and I recently visited a breeder and when visiting some 8 week old puppies she had (father was the breeder's dog, mother was the breeder's friend's dog, and the breeder was temporarily taking care of these puppies), we noticed they walked a bit funny, as if they were squatting/extending their back legs back as they walked and flicking their front legs up. Is this irregular? The puppies' nails' were not trimmed and looked very long, so perhaps they were just avoiding walking on their long nails? Or this is just how puppies walk?
kennels are in her backyard/charges $900 per pup
dogs are in show competitions
clearly passionate/knowledgeable about the breed
clean kennels/lots of room for puppies to exercise when let out
breeding dogs are OFA cleared and heart/eyes/thyroids/etc are vet checked
Any insight? Or does anyone know of good breeders in the $800-1000 range in NJ? This is the best option we have found for our price range so we really want it too work.
