Island Dog encourages you to consider adopting from a shelter or a rescue group before you contact a breeder or pet shop (which may be selling dogs from puppy mills.)


Please remember, puppy mills and breeders are breeding dogs/cats for financial gain.  Most charge thousands of dollars for animals inadequately bred.  Improperly bred animals create expensive medical problems. There are EDUCATED breeders working to maintain a standard and preserve some breeds; however, these breeders make up only a small percentage.  Please do extensive research & speak to your personal veterinarian before

contacting a breeder. 


Unfortunately, most animals are born selfishly to meet humans' financial needs.  When you adopt a shelter pet, there is no financial gain.

The gain is pure reward for saving an animals life.
