Is it safe to buy a puppy from a breeder that advertises in the newspaper?

Question by <3: Is it safe to buy a puppy from a breeder that advertises in the newspaper?
I was reading a book about adopting puppies, and it said that you shouldn’t buy a pup from a breeder that advertises in the newspaper, as they just want the money and they don’t care much about the puppy. Is this true? If it is, I don’t really know where I should go to adopt a pup, and I could use suggestions. I am looking more for a purebred puppy, so shelters aren’t really an option. Thanks!
I am looking to get a lab puppy

Yes its true as a reputable breeder NEVER has to advertise in a newspaper nor would they want to.

So that leaves BYBs and puppymills.

What breed are you looking for? YES shelters have purebred dogs and you can also look for a breed specific rescue.
