Concerning the above, I'm sure he's a great dog to the OP...

OP think about this. I have a high quality female for breeding. However I've invested years training, proofing, and proving her high quality. Seeing evidence that someone else did the same with their male can bring a conversation about breeding, but I need to see and know the male myself... Likely anyone who just says yes bc your unproven dog has a good pedigree is likely going to be an unwise breeding
