Planning to buy a puppy, please help?

Hello Guys. I really need some expert advise from u. I'm in Delhi. I went to a popular dog shop today as We are planning to buy a puppy. I told the shop owner that I've shortlisted Labrador as it's more trainable than most breeds. This lady showed me few puppies in a cage. She assured me the authencity of the breed and assured a puppy will be sold with papers. Now, I'm a beginner with no prior experience of buying puppies before. Can anyone tell me what this 'papers' is? Do papers guarantee the authencity of the breed? do papers confirm that puppy belong to registered parents. I really want someone to throw light on this. Some important links will also be appreciated.

Hi Navjot
The papers being referred to here should be the Registration Papers of the Dog. You should insist on the KCI registration papers. KCI Registration papers definitely certify the breed but not the quality. For getting the right quality something that can help are
1. You need to very carefully decide the breeder from where you buy the puppy. Select a reputed breeder of thr breed.
2. Insist on seeing the parents of the puppy before you decide to buy it.
3. Buy the puppy when he is not less than 10-12 weeks
4. Consult some old timers in the breed, who could help you on deciding the right puppy
5. Show the puppy to a vet for health certification

I hope this helps.

The info above is really worth-knowing. Like you mentioned the pup should be atleast 45 days old. I know someone who's selling me puppies which are just 1 and a half week old. that's the time when they should remain with their Mom. Secondly, the certificate just authenticates the breed not the healthiness of the pup. Before house-breaking, the puppy should be taken to the vet to insure it's healthy. The suggestion the mom should also be taken a look at is also good. But what's the gaurantee that the bitch they show is definetly the mother of the puppy I'm taking? If you know what i mean, there are hundereds outside to fool you into buying a wrong thing.

Hi Navjot : There are some reputed breeder in Delhi also which u can sort out on this site. Please dont buy puppy from any pet shop. They generally doing poor breeding and will not show you parents and dont give papers. ya they charge you for this and making money high. As Gaurav says puppy should be above 45 days in age. Rest is alertness. Thanks. Have a happy pet.

Thanks Bijal, my experience in the pet shops has not been good either. I've seen puppies locked in cages. These puppy have been separated from their mother before the appropriate age which is completion of 4 weeks. Now, they are denied nutritious mother milk without which puppy can never be developed as a heathy dog. The price of these puppy is around 7-8 thousand in these shops. That's damn expensive. I'm actually planning to buy a dog from a reputated dog breeder
