What type of puppy do you want? What are your plans and goals for the pup? Depending on these answers, you may be better off finding a breeder in the States to work with.

Import puppies are initially less expensive - but when you add shipping, customs brokers, fees, registration expenses - it can rapidly escalate to as much if not half again as much as a US breeder. Given that without good connections or a track record in the breed in the US, you can easily be taken advantage of by having a less desirable or problematic puppy pawned off on you. It is risky to buy an import without good connections.
