I get pick of the litter after the breeder. This is the breeder I originally was going to get a show pup from, but the puppy died. I will be helping her evaluate the litter at 8 weeks of age.
There are 3 girls...two have face coloring like mom, the other will be a cream/fawn, all the boys are fawn. The structure and type I have seen consistently produced in her puppies is excellent. The girl will either be a breeder, or, hopefully a show puppy. The eval they do at 8 weeks has been extremely successful in predicting adult quality/showability. I was nervous about it at first but after seeing consistent puppy after puppy after puppy of hers that is lovely and showable, I think its well worth it. I saw a girl I could have had from the litter before, and dang, I missed out on a good one. SO...
I'm hoping for LC at this point, but...don't really care SC or LC. I've never known a breeder to be SO particular about the type of dog she produces. I said I wouldn't get another puppy but after seeing her dogs in person at the last show we went to, I'm in love LOL. We'll see tho, if they don't eval to be show quality @ 8 weeks I may wait for a future litter. But for now, plan is...one of these is mine
I'm hoping for one w/ coloring on its face over a the cream/fawn.
