Among companion animals, dogs are unmatched in their devotion,
loyalty and friendship to humankind. Anyone who has ever loved a dog
can attest to its hundred-fold return. The excitement your dog shows
when you come home, the wagging tail at the sound of the leash being
taken from its hook, the delight in the tossing of a tennis ball,
and the head nestled in your lap are only some of the rewards of
being a dog owner.
The best way to ensure a long and happy relationship with a purebred
dog is to purchase the dog from a responsible breeder. While Grand
Rapids Kennel Club does not endorse or recommend breeders, we do
participate in the American Kennel Club Breeder Referral program.
GRKC Breeder Referral contacts have resources and information which
may help you find a responsible Breeder for your chosen breed.
