While I am not yet ready to have another dog, I would like to begin research on breeders for when we are ready. Does anyone know of a breeder in Illinois, or the surrounding area that they would suggest? My dear Tanky was a puppy mill pup (from petland), and I would like to find a reputiable breeder this time around. For those that don't know Tank's story, I did not buy him from petland, I got him when he was 6 months old and had been in 2 previous homes already that wouldn't keep him because he was "too hyper". Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've started looking at some of the links to breeder websites on here and it seems that most in Illinois and surrounding states no longer are breeding.
