I'm confused....you are looking to buy a male puppy, or looking for a stud dog? If the latter, for a good quality stud you will likely need to have hip and elbow certifications at barest of minimum, plus brucellosis testing and many will require vaginal cultures as well and also progesterone testing before the breeding. Most will also require the female to be trained and titled, possibly even breed surveyed.
If you are looking for a puppy and like your female, why not just go back to her breeder and get a second dog with similar lines? Seems like a lot of work to be doing all the necessary training/titling, health certifications, etc on TWO dogs to breed a litter.
