Why Gladiator Allegiance?
Behind every well-bred dog is a breeder who lost sleep, missed countless important events, and sacrificed to raise their puppies the right way because they love their dogs unconditionally. Pedigree is the result of tireless efforts from devoted and hardworking breeders. A puppy is a breeder’s legacy, heart, and hard work. Let’s respect and honor that.
How Much For a Puppy?
To those who write an email to ask the price, the person who calls and, after hearing a price, surprisedly states: “I can buy a cheaper pup elsewhere!” to the person who doesn’t care about papers because you want “just a pet.”
No Dog is “Just a Pet”
Behind every pure-bred puppy/dog is a BREEDER. I use capital letters to differentiate a breeder from a pet factory or mill. A reputable breeder does not breed dogs without papers. That does not protect the integrity of the breed. Registration with papers are records of the lineage that document the bloodline and allow one to research any possible health issues present in the lineage. When you tell a Breeder you don’t care about papers, you’re telling them that you couldn’t care less about the puppy’s health. You want the cheapest thing you can find.
BREEDERS Ensure A Healthy Dog
When you select to buy a puppy from a reputable and quality breeder, this Breeder is responsible for the health of every pup; both dogs owned and every pup they’ve sold for its lifetime. This Breeder will skip holidays and miss sleeping, and most of their personal house space has been turned into space for their dogs. The genuinely passionate Breeder who loves what they breed puts their whole heart and soul into it. Not only in the puppies but also in each client who owns a piece of their heart and now is a member of their extended family. This does not consider any puppy/dog who might get sick or need extra help to thrive. Breeders worry about their babies after they leave and will take one back without question.
A breeder will get their hands dirty, often covered in everything accompanied with birthing. Because that’s what life is about…In the middle of birth and death is life. The wheel that keeps turning. A breeder will do tests, echocardiograms, x-rays, analysis, emergency c-sections, vaccinations, register litters, research pedigrees, deworm, get them evaluated by specialists, and so much more.
Not Everyone is Ready for the Responsibility
Last but by no means least, a breeder CHOOSES the family lucky enough to have one of their puppies. Yes, you read that right. Genuine breeders choose who they sell to because they are not making money off the sale. No compensation can offset a Breeder’s investment, so they need to be confident it’s the right fit. A good Breeder will have different criteria for those wanting to carry on their bloodline. Breeding is not a responsibility to ever be taken lightly; it’s a lifestyle choice set aside for ONLY a few devoted people willing to sacrifice.
Because a dog is never “just a pet,” it’s the Breeder’s legacy, a little boy’s best friend, a little girl’s protector, a person’s therapy, and always a member of the family,
Buy From a Trusted BREEDER
I try to educate the buying public by telling them that QUALITY does not happen by ACCIDENT – Quality puppies happen by design – that research, planning, and design make a Breeding Program that consistently creates quality puppies.
Anybody can produce a puppy, but not all are created equally. The difference lies in a BREEDER.
A trustworthy breeder does not sell you a puppy. They sell you a breeding program. That program is built on a commitment and passion driven by years of dedication to research and development, testing, improvement, relationship management, and support. All the things that make a puppy a quality family companion – the kind everyone wants to fill a heart and home with joy.
Buying a breeder gives you that. Buy the Breeder and the foundation that built the dog, the effort, love, and dedication to design an entire program aimed solely at producing the very BEST of the breed, the best companion, the best pet, your best friend.
Buy from a BREEDER
Just a note for those looking for a puppy. When the first and only thing you ask is price, most reputable breeders aren’t going to work with you. Much more important is health, temperament, how puppies are raised, socialized, etc. While we understand you need to know the price, if the price is your only requirement, you probably won’t find a “reputable” breeder willing to place a puppy with you. Puppies from reputable breeders come with everything done for you, ear crop, tails, dew-claws, vaccinations, vet check, DNA testing, registration, etc. These costly services are expensive, and most of us cannot afford to give our puppies away.
