Border Terrier Puppies
Thank you for your interest in a Wildwood Border Terrier. All puppies purchased from me have had two veterinary visits and are vaccinated at 6 and 9 weeks of age. I provide all buyers with the vaccination records and a microchip. Microchips are computerized chips that are inserted under the dog's skin between the shoulder blades. These provide dogs with permanent identification and may make the difference if a pet is lost or stolen. Most shelters and veterinarians have scanners that will identify the chip number and hence the owner. It is important to register the chip so that the owner can be contacted. I use my veterinarian as an alternate contact for my dogs.
All pets are sold on a spay/neuter contract. This is to protect my puppies from being exploited by people who may not be responsible breeders. The Border Terrier, unfortunately, has fallen into the hands of those trying to make a quick buck. They are being sold at auctions and to brokers. You can find Border Terriers being advertised on many popular "quick find" puppy sites.
Dogs are not commodoties. Instead they are companions. Breeding should be left to those who invest in their dogs and are active in parent breed clubs. The sole purpose of a parent breed club is to preserve the natural characteristics and instincts of its breed. Parent clubs protect their breeds by educating their members and the public, holding breeders to ethical standards, investing monies into health research, and providing rescue services to their breeds.
