Reputable mixed dog breeders are very easy to detect. They will usually be able to provide you with all of the necessary vet papers and documents regarding the parents and breeding of the dog. Mixed dog breeders will be happy to show you around the facilities and show you other puppies or the parents of the pet you are purchasing. Good mixed dog breeders will make plenty of time to talk to you about the breed and your particular dog.

These are all good indications that you are dealing with professional, reliable and responsible mixed dog breeders. These indicators don�t mean that the breeders are being difficult or nosy but rather than they take pride in what they do and they care about the dogs they are breeding.
