How do you know if you are buying from a reputable breeder?  Please read this article from The American Dog Trainers Network

All of our redheads live in our home.  In fact, they have their own bedrooms and do NOT live in crates or cages.  They are family members first and foremost!  Puppies are all raised in their bedrooms with their mum, and all rooms have cameras to monitor all redheads.  Puppies are handled from the instant they are born until they leave our home to go to yours.  We spend countless hours each day caring for them and making sure that when you get your little precious puppy, you get a loving, sweet, playful, confident puppy.  These puppies are accustomed to being picked up, hugged, kissed, being on our laps, having their nails trimmed and beginning stages of grooming.  Weaning begins at six weeks old and is a gradual process.  We do not rush it!  Puppies receive their first vaccinations, three wormings and a thorough health examination from my long time, incredible veterinarian, Dr. Onorati of Des Moines Veterinary Hospital before they leave our home.  We only feed Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Fish dog food and treats and recommend continuing on this food.  We provide mentorship for the life of your puppy. Call, email or text and we will do our best to help you with concerns or questions or simply share in your delight. We will also take your puppy back at any time or age, should your circumstances change.  None of our redheads will go into rescue or be in shelters for this reason.  All puppies are sold on contracts.  

Before buying a puppy, ask the breeders if they are members of the Irish Terrier Club of America, and/or the Canadian Kennel Club and in good standing with the American Kennel Club.  A word of caution: though you may be looking for a pet/companion and not a show dog, you should still want to get a puppy from a reputable breeder in good standing with these Clubs/registries.  Members of these Clubs and breeders in good standing with the AKC or CKC (for those breeding in Canada), are bound by a Code of Ethics.  We strongly recommend you only buy a puppy from members of the Irish Terrier Club of America.

A tribute to my beloved Braedy, also known as Braedy Boy or Mr. B, the love of my life.  Please read my blog dedicated to the love of my life, my Braedy Boy.  Braedy, I will never forget you and I will never stop loving you and missing you.  Not a day goes by without my thinking of him and missing him.  He had his own personality and one such was how he got up to greet us no matting when or where.  I would say "come here to meeeeee."  I would point to where I wanted and he would come to that spot.  I miss how he'd wrap his arms around us hugging.
