The documentation which can come with your new puppy explained. Before we explain to you regarding documentation related to the purchase of a puppy please bare in mind the old saying which I'm sure you are all familiar with and that is "it's not worth the paper it is written on"
What Documents are Important and What They Mean
This can be so true with many things in life should we come across any problems after a purchase so before you buy your new pup you must decide what you as a buyer want from your new family member. Now as always controversy exists with anybody's point of view but due to Chihuahua World's passion for public awareness you need to understand what each piece of paper can actually do for you and the possible pit falls of dishonest breeders paperwork.
We like to think that every buyer's number one priority is knowing their pup is free from disease and current health issues so the documentation we want here is written confirmation from a registered vet saying what they have checked and that the pup has cleared all checks with no problems. This should be in the form of a health certificate signed and letter headed from the vet. These cost the breeder money so make your own mind up there.
Pedigrees unfortunately can come into the old saying category as just because there could be multiple champions in the pedigree doesn't mean the pup you brought will grow to be of the same quality due to the Chihuahuas habit of rogue genes popping up every now and then to produce an abnormality, this could be anything like height, weight, jaw problems, and indeed health issues. Again we can go back to the uncontrolled breeding which is happening out there where a breeder will buy a dog of quality bloodlines and then mating it with a dog they have which maybe of very poor breeding quality thus now introducing what could possibly be a bad combination of blood. The offspring will of course have half the pedigree of the quality dog which may look like a great pup on paper but until adult hood you may not know what you are going to have.
