I have no experience with the breeder but I was in a class with someone in the spring that had one of their pups. The pup was reactive and too much dog for the owner. I'm sure the pup would have represented differently had it been with an experienced and knowledgable owner.

I have no experience whatsoever with them, the red flags for me would be that 2 of their females that they are breeding have no titling whatsoever, and they tout ones as being "AKC registered" and "background in personal protection". Any dog can get AKC registered, its just a piece of paper, and what is her pp training?

I cannot get the pedigree links to work. I do not see OFA info on all the dogs, not saying it is not been done, just don't see it.

I see some nice testimonials.

I am not that concerned about no titles on some of the dogs being bred. I think as long as the dogs are OFA clear, in training for trialing/titling, and the male is titled, I would be okay with it.

I am not sure about the background in personal protection training with the ASL. Not saying an ASL cannot do protection, I know some can.

I think I would ask some more questions about hips, training, goals in breeding etc.

Hello everyone, I have not heard from anyone in this forum. Again, I would love to answer any questions that you may have about my breeding program, dogs, or breeding philosophies. I can also provide several references that you may call and speak to. These are people who have purchased a Morning Star Puppy and will be able to tell you about the temperment, abilities, and health of our puppies.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you!
