Hi RainE, I don't want to discourage you from someday being a breeder. We need all the good breeders we can get for the future. But, as you mentioned, I don't think now is the right time for you to start that venture.
In addition to acquiring the necessary health and temperament clearances for their breeding stock, the best breeders aim to improve the breed, and usually that is demonstrated through titles, sport, or real life working ability (IPO or another protection sport, showing, police work, search and rescue, tracking, herding, ect).
I think the best thing you can do right now is to start training your dog in some kind of advanced venue (STAR puppy is a great place to start, but it ultimately needs to be more than that) and find the best breeder you can to mentor you. You can learn a ton with the dog that you have now. Then, someday, perhaps, you can invest in a pup that might have higher potential for breeding. Not that your dog isn't wonderful and beautiful, as I'm sure he is, but there's probably not a great demand for a stud without papers, unless he absolutely excels in some sport.
I hope you get to be a breeder someday if that is a dream of yours, and I hope you go about it the right way. I'm just a pet-owner. There are several experienced breeders on this site who will provide more helpful advice than I can give. But I will say, before I even contact a breeder for more information about a litter, I look for someone who health-checks their dogs (as I see you plan to do, which is great) and who titles their dogs in some venue.
With that said, I'd love to see photos of your dog someday. I'm sure he is a great companion!
