As to your question re: the puppies' looks, I am not the right person to answer that. I pay very little attention to color/appearance (it's pretty much dead last on my list of priorities) and I'm not a breeder anyway, so it's never been a topic that I spent any time researching. On top of that, Shilohs aren't my breed, and I know absolutely nothing about how their coat colors, markings, etc., are inherited.
I do think that would be a great question to ask the breeder, though.

|Snapdragon||Good to know. I see that she does do OFA and CERF. I was referred to her through Ridgewood Shilohs, who currently have one of their most esteemed dogs siring a litter that I'm interested in. I'm mostly choosing them because I'm following this sire around who so far as I have seen has made gorgeous babies (Ridgewood's Fame and Fortune. He's stunning.) I wonder if I can ask her for photos of adult babies from her dogs, I'm interested to see what they look like past 8 wks etc. Since there's some particular traits I'm looking for. If the parents look a certain way, do the babies mostly inherit that?|

I don't have a ton of experience with them, and I have never met or spoken to the breeder myself, but I have seen one dog out of this kennel. He was a big sweet fluffy goofball. Stable and sociable in a crowd, very easygoing, little to no working drive (as far as I could tell, and his owner said the same, but she hadn't gotten him for performance so she didn't mind), softer temperament. This was at a big "meet the breeds"-type event where I was doing some adoption stuff, so I didn't have a ton of time to talk to the owner or get to know the dog real well, unfortunately. But what I saw was a nice pet dog.
This breeder does health test and do some minimal titling on her dogs (mostly just CGCs, as far as I can tell, so... not much, but something), and if I were going to recommend a Shiloh breeder to someone, she'd definitely make my list.

Ocean State Shilohs?
Anybody have any experience with her or her dogs?
