Purchasing a Purebred Dog

Things you should know about purchasing a purebred dog....
 
In Canada, only a dog that is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club may be sold as "purebred". These dogs will come with a CKC Registration number, papers and a pedigree.  Any breeder who advertises a dog as purebred, must be able to produce these documents to you within 6 months of the date of purchase. Purebred dogs are not allowed to be sold without these documents at a cheaper price.
