Purebred puppies are simply puppies that are bred from two dogs of the same breed. This is often proven with registration paperwork from the different companies, like AKC, CKC, ACA, etc. If a dog is not purebred, it is considered to be a hybrid or mixed breed (commonly referred to as a mutt). Hybrid puppies are deliberately bred from two purebred dogs that are different breeds, hence the term designer, which implies a bloodline created by mixing purebreds. Mixed breeds are generally bred from two dogs of blended breeds and their bloodlines are usually not as traceable.
With over 45 years of experience in responsible pet sourcing, Petland has developed state-of-the-art standards for its retail pet stores. This means you can trust our choices in breeders not only because of our standards, but also because of the USDA’s oversight. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), a division of the USDA, is tasked with the important job of inspecting the professional puppy breeding kennels that Petland partners with, under the guidelines of the AWA.
These controls mean that when you purchase a purebred puppy from Petland, you can rest assured that from the breeder to our retail stores, we are committed to animal welfare and the quality of our pets.
