OFA certified for a minimum of 2 generations with Excellent to Good ratings. Will pick up (I am retired) and will ask for references. I am in Illinois but will travel by car anywhere within the continental USA to pick up the dog; don't believe in shipping. Female long hair preferred.
what is your lifestyle , what are your expectations, what is your experience ?
get to know the breeder - have conversations -- what is their track record , and by the way you may not believe in shipping but dogs and pups do fly out every single day -- from Europe, and all across the USA and Canada. Driving to a destination limits your selection .
I worked in an airport and have seen how the airlines treat dogs. You might not see it upon arrival but I would not put a dog through this. One arrived dead, some were bleeding through the eyes or ears, and many other stories which are not pleasant.
