They emphasize physical appearance and are selling a brand, not a working dog. Regarding titles in the pedigree you posted, I only see two Good Canine Citizenship Awards, which are not really titles and are very basic assessments of a dog's temperament.
Alright in no way did I want to start a bash session about a breeder. I was trying to get insight on temperament. This breeder raises dogs that are out of standard because they are considered over-sized. I don’t not care about that. I care about the health and longevity of the dog and the breeder you are bashing has proven that that is what is important to her and is also what is important to me. Have a good day!

I am not bashing, just stating objective facts. If they don't follow the standard for type, what makes you think they follow the standard for temperament? I read on her site where she promotes a couple of her dogs as being soft and submissive.

Same thread...different day.

Op...No. These dogs are not bred for anything other than pets. If you don't care about the breed standards then you have no business breeding anythng.
