Reputable breeders do not sell to middlemen or retailers, and there are no guarantees as to whether the puppy had healthy parents. Interview breeders thoroughly, and make sure the puppy’s parents have been screened for genetic diseases pertinent to that breed. Ask breeders about the health issues they’ve encountered in their dogs, and don’t believe anyone who claims that her dogs never have any health problems. Ask for references so you can contact other puppy buyers to see if they’re happy with their Coonhound. Doing your homework may save you a lot of heartbreak later.
