Buying a puppy

dreamwood border puppies
Buying a puppy is a life-changing experience - Not unlike bringing home a newborn child.
Who would think of spending happy hours with their newborn during the holidays, then leaving it alone for 10 hours a day when they return to work?
We love our puppies and want to see them join families who will respect and care for them - as long as they live.
Please consider the following if you wish to own a Dreamwood Border Collie.
