When looking for White Golden Retriever puppies for sale it is important that you take your time in choosing the right breeder and a puppy that will be healthy and happy for years to come. All puppies are cute, and it is important to move past the “awww” factor to determine which puppy is right for you. There are a few things you can look for when assessing the health of your puppy.
First, when following an ad for White Golden Retriever puppies for sale, it is best to assess your puppy in person. That way you can see the puppy’s living area and assess the health and temperament of their parents and litter mates. Going in person will also help ensure the honesty of the breeder you are dealing with.
When assessing the puppy
, you can begin by looking at the puppy’s eyes and ears. Look for clear eyes that are free of discharge. The eyes should be open all the way and not appear tired or droopy. Look in the corner of the eyes to make sure they are white, and not red. You may be able to see the third eye lid in the corner of the eye, which is normal as long as it is not swollen or enlarged. When checking the ears first make sure that hair goes all the way to the tips of the ears. Then lift the ear and make sure there is no discharge or fowl odor. A healthy puppy will have clean ears that smell sweet.
The next area to check is the puppy’s mouth. Lift up the side of the lips gently and look at the puppy’s gums. They should be light pink in color and if you press your finger into the gums, the color should return within three seconds. Pale gums or gums that don’t return to their color quickly can indicate anemia or dehydration. You can also feel the puppy’s nose and make sure it is warm and moist with no discharge.
White Golden Retriever puppies for sale are usually healthy and bred by reputable breeders; but no breed is immune from puppy mills or poor breeding. You will be glad you took the time to assess your puppy
when you are cradling your new healthy bundle of joy.
