I hope you aren't in a hurry. The boy should be about 2 years old or older, so you have plenty of time to learn a lot about the whole process, about bloodlines, and the standard, about genetics and how the colors/coats actually work -- though these are the last things that should be considered in a breeding.
There is a lot to take into consideration, like finding the best homes for your pups, and what you can do now to give them the best chance, sort of stack the deck in their favor so to speak when it comes to finding good homes.
You will hear a lot of crap on these threads about who should breed and why you should breed dogs or not breed dogs. I am only going to say that it can break your heart, when you realize through your action or inaction you failed to keep a puppy alive, or when you lose a bitch that you love because something went wrong and you did not know the signs, because your vet said something and you did not know enough to walk out, discard their advice and rush the dog/pups to a specialist.
So stick around in the forum and read everything, specifically the threads on breeding. Try to get past snarky comments and attitudes, and be open-minded rather than defensive. And hopefully, by the time your puppy is old enough, you will be in a better place to make the best choices for your dogs.
