Buying a dog from an ad like that virtually guarantees you to a dog that’s going to be ill socialized due to having been born in a puppy mill, in horrible medical condition because of being the product of overbreeding.
Go to the pound. Thousands of dogs would love to go home with you.
If you really want a purebred, pick a breed and do your research. A breeder that’s reputable will let you see their breeding stock, their facilities, and will usually put you in contact with people who have purchased dogs from them before. They’ll also be able to provide legit AKC/CKC papers for the dog. [/quote]

What a complete dipshit I am not reading that in your initial post. Apologies.
