How can I tell if a puppy is healthy?

Pick a Quality Pup

One way to ensure that you are getting a healthy puppy is to start your search with a reputable breeder. It is important that you obtain your puppy from someone who screens for any hereditary problems. Additionally, most reputable breeders will allow you to take the puppy for a veterinarian check before finalizing the purchase. The next step is to interact with the puppy. Check to make sure that he is fairly active and alert. Check his gait to make sure that he does not have any limping when he walks. His eyes should be bright and clear and his nose should not be runny.
