Heidi, why do you keep posting new threads? You have several going. A better idea would be to just have one to chart your ongoing puppy search.
You bounce back and forth between lines/breeders....have you yet visited a club or watched dogs training to gain knowledge on the different lines? You say you've gotten to know different dogs, where did you get to know them? While you have to wait to move out on your own, can you visit clubs/venues/trials and learn more before you make a decision on what breeder to go with?
Sometimes it is best to know who's breeding who to who and then getting on a breeding of dogs that you admire.
