Guide to Get the Best Puppies
Taking a step to get a new puppy for people you love is a big step and a very exciting exercise. Before buying a puppy, the health of the puppy should be considered. The health comes first and should be something that comes first in one’s mind. Adopting a healthy puppy is the best thing that one can do. At least get a happy puppy that will stay lively throughout its life with your family. When you get a pet of your interest is also another thing that makes everyone happy and ready to keep the pet well.
Before getting yourself a new puppy, check the level of cleanliness of the puppy because cleanliness closely determines the health of the puppy. When you find a new puppy, check the ears because dirty ears cause infections and also indicate the presence of mites. Avoid puppies with red ears and bad odors. The puppy should not have discharge from the nose. The puppy should not sneeze randomly or cough profusely. Discharge should not be assumed to be from saliva through being licked by the puppy. Eyes should be bright and alert, so there should be no discharge around the eyes.
Check the energy level of the puppy. One should not only consider the physical symptoms of the puppy but also evaluate the general energy of the puppy. Watch the interaction of the puppy with other puppies and also how it interacts with you. It takes time for the puppy to get used to you and your family but it will eventually get used to you and your family. Healthy puppies always want to play when awake, so at least take some time for the puppy and play. All healthy puppies are always curious and always want to play all the time.
Always go for a pet that is at the right age. It should be at least nine weeks old of its life. It is better for a puppy to live with its littermates and mother for a period of about nine weeks before being separated. This helps it to grow healthier and stronger. Living with its littermates and mother for this period, helps it to mature enough and hence get ready to live with other animals and human beings at large. If a breeder wants to sell a puppy less than eight to nine weeks old, you should always take caution and ask several questions about why he wants to sell such a young puppy.
Usually, examine the coat of the puppy before deciding to purchase it. The fur should always be clean and fresh and at least appealing to the eyes. The fur should be at least shiny with no bald patches on its skin. The puppy should be easy to clean after getting dirty maybe after playing with other puppies. Make sure the puppy does not have fleas on its body and does not scratch itself at any given time. Scratching is a sign of dirtiness and also it is an indication of the presence of fleas.
