Some information about me - I'm 23, I live in Tennessee, and I work as veterinary technician. A friend breeds standards and I've fallen in love with the breed. They are incredibly smart and have the best temperament. I've done a ton of research and I feel solid on the health side of things. I would like to participate in AKC sports and I've gone to watch rally, flyball, barn hunting, conformation, etc. I'm super excited and I've taken as much advice from breeders as I can. I'm ready to start working with a puppy and I've settled on a color. I've contacted several breeders, gone through AKC marketplace and it's been difficult to find the color I want with the testing and OFA clearances that I want. If anyone could lead me in the right direction that would be lovely. Thank you so much!
