Purebred puppies for sale are simply puppies that are bred from two dogs of the same breed. If a dog is not purebred, it is considered to be a mixed breed/mutt or designer dogs. Designer puppies are bred from two purebred dogs from different breeds, hence the term designer, which implies a bloodline created by mixing purebreds. Mixed breeds/mutts are generally bred from two dogs of blended breeds and their bloodlines are usually not as traceable.
If you are in the market for purebred puppies for sale, you’re at the right place and here’s why. Petland is an excellent source to find it because Petland puppies only come from 3 sources, which are:
- USDA licensed breeders and distributors with no direct violations on their latest inspection report who have a veterinarian-documented socialization and exercise program and follow veterinarian protocol for skin, coat, nail and dental hygiene.
- Hobby breeders as defined by the Animal Welfare Act, who raise their dogs in a humane manner.
- Local adoption pets that are vet-checked. Some of our puppies and kittens come from local animal shelters or from members of the local community as part of Petland’s Adopt-A-Pet program.
