Sally Ghizzoni's Testimonial

What should you look for when choosing a breeder? Based on my own personal experience, I would say that the attitude of the breeder, that is reflected in the choice of the sire and dam, as well as the support that you receive after picking up your puppy can be very important.

I had just lost an Australian Shepherd to cancer when I went looking for another dog. And, by good fortune, I ran into Kristi Cetrulo in my hometown of Santa Barbara, California, who had just birthed a litter of Australian Shepherds.

In the past I had always chosen rescue dogs; but this time I wanted to try a puppy. But not just any Australian Shepherd puppy. I wanted the breeder to be just as concerned about the health and longevity of the dog as I was.

Although nobody can guarantee that a dog won't die of cancer at a young age, I found that Kristi had done everything that could be done to insure that her litter of puppies would be long-lived and healthy. Her focus was always on the health, intelligence and vitality of her dogs. This closely matched my concerns.

When I showed my interest in her puppies, Kristi made sure that I knew what I was getting into. She was very thorough in talking with me and it was clear that she cared deeply for the long-term well being of each puppy in the litter.

After I took my little angel home, Kristi continued to be available for any of my questions since I had never raised a puppy before. Her support was invaluable and led me to all the right people and places that were instrumental in helping me raise my puppy to adulthood.

I now have a perfect dog. Super Ripley is intelligent, obedient, and a joy to be around. And this isn't just my opinion. It never fails that when we are out in public that people comment on how well trained she is. And beautiful too!

If I ever decided to get another dog, it will be from one of Kristi's litters. I trust her totally with one of the most important things in my life, my beloved canine companion. If your goal is to add a member to your family, that happens to have four paws and fur, Kristi can provide you with the perfect bundle of joy if your tastes run to Australian Shepherds. The rest is up to you.
