Whatever you do, don't rush just b/c you want one now. Last year I nearly let my impatience overtake me. In the midst of feverish plans it hit me HARD that I might deeply regret saving a few hundred bucks or waiting several months. I took a deep breath & committed to waiting for a pup from a breeder I trust whose pups' temperament, health & looks I very much like. I'm so very glad that I did.
