I've heard of the name, but being a long ways from Idaho, I don't know anything more. The pedigree looks decent, and the health testing has been done. I don't like it when people say "cardio clear" because it is a misconception. Cardio testing is something that should be done every year, but saying a dog is "clear" is only in that moment in time....it is no guarentee that they will not develop Cardiomyopathy in the future. It does look like the bitch had a cardio test in Feburary of this year. I would ask to see all testing results on paper.Flash said:
Hey, there's Bug! Glad to see you here!dobebug said:I know this breeder and most of her dogs. I'd regard her as one of the better small breeders around--even if she doesn't know that only Kennel Clubs are members of the AKC and not individuals. I think what she was trying to say that that as an individual she is in good standing with the AKC and there are definitely individuals who are not for a variety of reasons.
Most of her dogs are owner handled to their championships and she does train in performance as well.
Nice honest lady I think--health tests and does the best she can to make sure that she's breeding a suitable dog to the particular bitch. I'd recommend her any time.
