I know two experienced breeders very interested in acquiring more of her animals and I was just wondering if anyone had had any contact/experience. Buyer beware is an expression for good reasons.
I'm just saying what I saw - which is that I saw no titles or health testing listed on her Facebook page. I'd be interested in seeing what kind of health testing she did on her breeding dogs. DCM is so often now just the two DNA markers that we know of (and they really mean nothing) - I definitely would want to see at least a recent cardiac Ultrasound, hips, blood workup with thyroid liver & kidneys, VWD, and eye cerf.

I'm not saying she isn't reputable - I have no idea based on what little I've seen. I do know that *most* reputable breeders don't sell to unknown people across the ocean...... and they certainly don't sell their best.
