    Due Diligence.

    As I am relatively new to this forum i'd like a bit of clarification. I have decided to buy a wirehaired Vizsla and would like to know about the gentleman I have decide to buy from. Are there any rules about using names or making such inquiries. In the light of internet scams etc. I would like to know that the guy I am supposed to buy from, is above board. I have no reason (at the moment) to doubt that he is anything but straight up but I feel that it never does any harm to find out for sure !

    We don't really have rules, except don't be a dick. The community generally decides what is acceptable. I might start proactively deleting all the bullshit political whining at some stage though

    thanks for your concern about buying a dog, too many idiots out there selling inbred "puppy mill" dogs
    i hate animal cruelty, so lets be good about the purchase of dogs. mine was a rescue years back from a pretty abusive owner

    Thanks to Mickey Duck and Kawhia. Not to mention the the rule to live by "Don't be a dick". I'm in the market for a decent indicating dog and definitely don't want to either get ripped off or support a puppy mill. I wholeheartedly agree with Gonetropo, Breeding dogs because you are into the breed is one thing but there are a lot of dicks out there who see a litter of a dozen pups mutiplied by $3000 each and just want to cash in.

    If you're not sold on a
    papered viszla then occasionally a decent guy on here sells a pup from a litter. Usually very good mum and dad. Most guys are pretty trustworthy here too.

    Went ahead with the purchase. Went to see the parents and (listened to the hunting stories of the owner) Parents have really nice happy, well mannered nature. Had the pup for just over a week now and he is shaping up the same. Silver lining of Lockdown is that I get a bit more time during the day to work with him. I've tried to post a photo but the "insert image" tab doesn't seem to work. Thanks for the advice gents !

    Thanks for the comments and @2post for the help. Hopefully I can learn how to attach photos. Maybe to show the wrecked gumboots and jandals !!

    We look forward to the updates especially him standing over a deer in dense bush or running back to you with a duck held gently in his mouth. Im sure well get gum boots and jandals first.

    Do we get to know his/her name?
