    with the breeders I knew when I was active in the 1970s and 1980s.  Attention to genetics, health warranties, lots of attention to training and assessment of disposition, breeding for health and longevity as well as performance and conformation.  Spay-neuter contracts for non-breeding pets, and a commitment to take back the dog at any time.  I used to do rescue, and the dogs we ended up with were often from puppy mills or pet stores (pretty much the same thing) and rarely from breeders we knew - if we could trace the breeder they would usually take the dog back no questions asked.
