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!

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.

The structure was built at the turn of the century as a series of warehouses. In 1906 the Gothic Revival facade was added by local architect Cass Gilbert (whose major projects include the Minnesota State Capital, the U.S. Supreme Court building, and New York’s Woolworth Tower).

The building is the current home of Theatre de la Jeune Lune. Sad news: TJL just announced they’re closing after 30 years due to financial difficulties.
