I am pretty worried about getting one again but I cannot imagine not getting one at the same time. I am on the West Coast and if you know breeders that have proven to have healthy, sound working lines (Czech type) dogs please PM me their names and websites. I am not into hardcore dog sports but love agility, nose work. play and living with one of these beauties.
Of course I realize there is never a 100% guarantee but I need to lessen my chances for another tragedy.
