    make sure you see its parents if possible


    Mothers with teenagers know why animals eat their young

    no you normally buy dogs through a breeder there are normally ads in papers etc

    with a dog if you get the chance to see its parents you will have some idea as to how your dog when grown up will be

    make sure you pick one that is lively too and rolf harris always says to check that it has shiney eyes nice looking coat etc

    Someone has been watching animal hospital!

    I agree with Vauxy, see the parents etc Spend a decent amount of time with the dog before you walk away with it so you can judge its temperament. Check what vaccinations its had and everything like that. If you get it from a decent breeder who cares about the animal then they will be more than willing to provide you with all the info you need.
