    If you go to AKC.org they have links to breeders in your area. They also have breed rescue organizations listed as well. Not sure if you were looking for a pure bred or not.

    Please go to a good breeder, too many pet stores carry dogs from puppy mills. Someone else suggested excelent ways to find a good breeder and there is always a rescue organization that wants to find a dog a good home. Did I mention a breeder? Go and meet them in person. See where they breed the dags and see how they care for them. If you have the stomach for it, do a search on "puppy mill" and you will understand.

    This is a good point... if you go to a breeder, make sure they're a responsible breeder who is doing it because they love the breed, not to make money. They should let you come before the litter is born to see the parents and it's nice to see how they care for other litters. The breeder I went to was great, most of their dogs weren't around because they have a full staff that brings them to dog shows. The puppies' pens were all very clean and all their dogs seemed very well cared for and were extremely friendly.

    Thank you...also research the breed if you aren't already familiar with them. Check out WoofBoard.com lots of great info and people on there..I'm Foxy on there.

    I have 2 Bostons, 1 1/2yr old boy and a 2yr old girl. I got the boy as a puppy and the girl came from a rescue.
