Many dog breeds are similar, so look at the pix on the breed pages if you're not sure which breed of dog you want. Ask the breeders about the dogs' temperament, as a dog is not just a pretty face! If you're buying a puppy, plan to take leave from work, because puppies need careful supervision and bonding in their formative years.

Some folk expect their dog to fight their battles for them - to kill burglars. It's better to keep the dog in the house where it can't be poisoned, than to risk its life in the garden. A small barking dog can be a good burglar deterrent!
In South Africa, KUSA is considered the authority on dogs, so most breeders register their puppies with KUSA. KUSA can also send you a copy of the breed standard. Puppies may not look like the breed standard to start with - some breeds change colour as they mature. But you can compare the parents with the breed standard. Dog breeders should all be familiar with the standard.Testimonial
