I wish I had known that before, though she probably did not have any litters 3 years ago. I went all over the internet, consulted the CWCCA website, and eventually found a breeder who competed in the AKC who did not breed all the dogs just for sale. She bred her dogs to produce champions when she felt she had room. So the litters were well spaced out. She was very kind but she was in Oklahoma. So Miranda had a plane ticket and came to MA. I will have to remember that breeder if I can convince my fiancee to add another to the pack. Though now that I have adopted i dont know if I could ever go back to a breeder. Morgan is so perfect and he was about to be put down. I cannot stand to thnk of the others in the same position.
