Sometimes the best dog for you is within reach. I have been looking for years and years and was starting to look oversees when I came across WD's breeder within two hours drive from me. He only had two pups available; one being WD, who happened to be 9 weeks old!!!!
The breeder told me that WD would be what I was looking for but not his brother who was very high drive. I believed and trusted him as I knew his good reputation and I didn't see any red flags and WD was calm and social. He was right; I couldn't have wished for a better match.
