|Anonymous||How to find a reliable breeder?||4||Jul 16 2008, 9:26 AM EDT by twineej|

I am interested in adopting a maltipoo in about 3 months. I am doing preliminary research and can't seem to find any breeders in CT or in surrounding states. Does anyone have any information about breeders in New England? How can I tell if a breeder that is willing to ship to CT is actually a reputable breeder (besides the obvious--offering vet checks, health guarantees, and pedigrees?) Has anyone else encountered this problem?

Does anyone know how to stop a maltipoo from digging? He is ruining the carpets in our home. But, he does this when no one is around so it's hard for us to train him to stop. I want to get rid of him but my husband's attached to it. Any advice would be great.
