    Buy health insurance for the pup before you health test her.

    The place I got Grace from was the epitome of terrible backyard breeder. I don't support it but there was no way I was leaving her there, I only feel bad I couldn't get the other two pups that were there with her as well. it's a shame that people see easy profit and put that ahead of the welfare of the animals.

    And if you can at least change the guy's mind and make him think about it a bit then at least it's something.

    Good idea Nat! I did not even think about that!
    Right? Volunteering with rescues, you see a lot of BYBs surrender their last one or two pups that they couldn't sell. I used to be all direct and call them out on their breeding practices, but learned, the minute you do that, people get defensive, immediately assume you're an asshole and wrong and keep doing what they do. I found the less direct approach and "hand holding" to be much more effective.
