You have a few options when it comes to buying AKC registered Frenchies in California. They're not the kind of dog you're likely to find at your local pet store, but there are breeders throughout the state for you to choose from. The question is, which one do you choose?
Unfortunately, not all breeders are equal in creating an environment that promotes a puppy's health and happiness in their first weeks of life. To ensure that a breeder will give your new puppy their best chance at a long and healthy life, there are a few things to look out for.
Not All Breeders Have AKC Registration
Whether or not a breeder has AKC registration for their puppies should be a serious question for anyone looking to adopt. Having puppies registered by the AKC (American Kennel Club) guarantees that they're purebred. This is important because many breeders, in California and beyond, will charge people higher prices for purebred dogs, without actually ensuring that the dog is purebred.
Having the AKC's stamp of approval speaks to the health of the puppies and the responsibility and reputation of the breeder. When looking for Frenchies in California, it's definitely safer to avoid breeders who don't have registration.
They Should Be Knowledgable About the Breed
If you want to spot an amateur breeder from an experienced one, try asking them questions about the breed. In the case of Frenchies, a breeder should be knowledgable about how to clean their folds and prevent infections, how to maintain a healthy weight (Frenchies love to eat!), and every other detail you need to know. You'll also have more assurances regarding a breeder's knowledge, experience, and reputation if:
- They breed Frenchies specifically
- They've been in business for more than ten years
- They're family-owned and operated
A newer breeder may not know about the genetic health issues that Frenchies, or the other dogs they breed, are susceptible to. They also may not have the resources to safely DNA test their puppies to ensure that they don't have these health issues. Opting for a more professional breeder that specializes in Frenchies specifically drastically decreases the chance of your puppy having these avoidable health problems.
