Here's buster we r new to this forum!!!
What a sweet boy! Love the name. Makes me think of when I was a young girl..."buster brown shoes". I know, showing my age, lol.
I wore buster browns as a kid as well!!!
Your Buster Brown is a darling. Lovely chocolate. We have a black lab who is 13 weeks old and we just love his little personality that is starting to show. Hoping for a chocolate in a few years as we do want a two lab house.
Your kids must have a ball with Buster.
Love that Yellow has such a wide range. Only seen Fox Red in pictures.
Have plans too to add another Lab to our family. Would love Chocolate or Yellow as we have a Lovely Black already. But to be honest color is secondary. Health comes first, sex next. Will be another Male and will probably put our names on the waiting list when Strax hits 2 years old.
Yes, breeder is key and health to me is a big portion of picking out a puppy! We too were on a waiting list and when our breeder had three litters of no male chocolates we reached out to another breeder who had only male chocolates left. I researched the breeder contacted her references and it all checked out ok, but sadly after purchasing a pup from her at a costly adoption fee (only because we want full rights and registration) the papers are not able to be processed do to the breeder. So now Buster is 8 months I payed a hefty adoption fee and no papers. I will never work with her ever again and will warn anybody who calls me as a reference!! I have learned my lesson on breeders that are in good standing with the AKC! I will wait next time! Buster is a wonderful family member but I would not have paid the money for a unregisterable lab! This was my first "papered" pet and learned the hard wayto stick with the breeder you have the most confidence with!
Best bet, Stick with the breeder you have the most confidence and will actually talk to you honestly. Got really lucky our first time out with a breeder who was very up front with how she deals with her lines.
Yes that's how our first breeder was vey upfront!!! My fault we switched and I have the reciept saying full registration! We don't even want to breed just thought it would be nice to have him in competitions through the AKC!!! Oh well we have a brilliant house dog!!
I agree just like Buster Brown shoes haha great name!
