The breeder you are interested in may offer you names of previous buyers so you can contact them....hopefully they will share photo's and accomplishments and vouche for the breeder. The breeder I bought my male from, luckily lived within driving distance but I know they sell to distant states and there is a pretty strong network of past buyers as references. The breeder has every litter with all pups listed so anyone can view the progression and see the longevity in the foundation lines. No personal names of the owners are listed, however.
If you trust the breeder you chose, then the pup that they choose for you should fulfill your dream.
