Why this breeder? What has she told you about the pedigree and what she foresees the breeding will produce? What is the overall health and temperament of the breeding dogs? Sire and dam have minimal working titles listed. Have the dogs with schh titles and breed survey been imported with those titles done in Germany?

What does the breeder predict for hips/elbows? Have the xrays been certified by the SV or OFA? Do you get a temperament or health guarantee? What are the stipulations of this contract? Consider all parts of the puzzle. Go meet the dogs, see them work, see how they interact and behave, delve deeper into the lines, research the individual dogs, speak to people that own half siblings or littermates, what do they see in their dogs, how are closely related family members in terms of health and temperament. We do not know these dogs - we can only offer a cursory overview of this pedigree based on bits and pieces on the pedigree. Go out, meet the dogs, get info from other buyers, and make your decision.

So I take it I should keep looking I gave a deposit and I can transfer it to another litter. Also she was breeding this pair for a female to keep but the only girl came out a long hair and she didn't want her.

My guess is that the breeder *is* intentionally linebreeding on her dog to keep a dog back and breed *that* dog to a more open pedigree. I do think the breeder is well aware of the linebreeding, whether or not we all agree with it or would want to do the same is another matter, we all want different things in our dogs and have different ideas about what to breed and what type to set.

Whether or not this litter is right for you, I would discuss that with the breeder.

She had planned to keep her to breed. Also she is not pushing me to take her like I said I can transfer my deposit to the litter she will have in two months. I just didn't understand why she would breed for her if she thought it was going to be a problem?
