Exclamation Just spoke to a breeder...no GPRA will be done

I messaged a breeder who has a litter and asked all the relevant questions....they said that they don't provide papers to prove GPRA checks have been done on the parents. Walking away can't believe it, how irresponsible

RED FLAG ALERT ................... thank god you had the sense to walk (with big strides) !!!!! Never go to anyone who says anything like this. If they cannot provide proof on the spot of up-to-date GPRA testing, walk with a capital 'W' ...
