We ask where in a state one is as a reference point. There could very well be a breeder pretty well near you. Thats the only reason we ask. Example, I'm in Colorado but my location says which city. Thats all anyone knows. They'd have to know me personally to know exactly where. Its a relatively large city too. I have a couple breeders close by in Denver which is roughly an hours drive from the springs. I'm not trying to push you. Just trying to explain why the question is asked. If I were looking for a breeder nearby and I said my location is Colorado Springs, anyone with knowledge of breeders within a three hour distance from me could give me a referall to check out those specific breeders.
As far as sloped backs, more often than not, it's due to the stacked position of the dog. If you were to look at pictures of a stacked dog and then view pictures of the dog in a relax stance, you'd see the back is straight.
All the abbreviations you'll see usually have something to do with a certification or a title. CGC is the Canine Good Citizen certificate, as an example.
