If you just pick someone off craigslist without papers than good luck because chances are they will have issues. DNA samples for damn and sier are also registered with AKC. I just ask for you to educate yourself a bit more before jumping to several points with ZERO knowledge of the facts. :-(
Just, uh, FYI, since you seem to have missed that day in health class--human females don't "do" estrus.
Ahem, moving on.
It is people like you who keep people like me and my rescue buddies, sadly, in business.
We really want you to stop. A lot. As in, STOP IT.
Do not damn well breed your "damns" anymore.
