Pink papered means the registration is in Germany. So in order to get AKC papers, the dogs have to submit DNA to AKC, owners in Germany have to sign documents. My 10 mth old came from a litter bred in Germany.
I wouldn't call unknown ratings a red flag at this point. You already have her. If I were buying a puppy and saw that, I would back away. However, you have to have her hips and elbows down. You should send it into the SV to check for TV as well. That's several hundred dollars.
I don't know SV scoring on hips and elbows so can't speak to that. I believe the A is excellent and then the numbers break it down more.
So she'll just hand out full registration for a little more money? No stipulations like the dog has to be titled and then full registration is available?
Then you should get her titled. At the very minimum, she should have an IGP1. You could get a show rating and breed survey done as well.
After you've health tested her and titled her, then you look for a male to compliment her.
And as a side note, I have an intact male and my 10 mth old female just went thru her first heat. Keeping them separate wasn't hard but it's a pain....and then there are the few days that Seger completely lost his mind. Not fun.
I'm not sure where you are in TN but maybe Alexis could help you out finding a club or a trainer. @GatorDog
Just curious - why do you want to breed?
