I would go with A as well. To me, they seem more put together and professional. It is obviously a personal decision, and you must do what feels best to you, but I would go with A.

Thanks for your input, all!

I've decided to just stick with my original plan: Go with breeder A, unless they don't have a male pup for me, then I think I would be comfortable and happy purchasing a pup from B.

Quote:
Eta I do not buy dogs where a guarantee depends on returning the dog.
Thought I'd clarify: I could choose to return the dog. I wouldn't have to. And regardless of whether I would return said dog, I would still be offered a "replacement" puppy. (Also, the hip guarantee ends at 2 years, because at that time they want you to get the hips evaluated by OFA.)

At this stage, what do I say, other than "they haven't tied yet" and "her progesterone is still low, will probably be another day or two". Do they care? I doubt it, LOL.
I actually wouldn't mind getting those updates. Hahaha! So maybe I'm a bit more extreme than most.

Me three!! I like hearing ANYTHING at all. I have kind of endless questions, and am always keen to hear anything and everything.

And I should be hearing confirmation of pregnancy pretty quick, too! Good luck to you!

Breeder A seems way more appealing to me, they get my vote.

Still waiting on my AST puppy...probably Octoberish, SO FAR AWAY.

In the meantime, Sherman is still here and his breeder has decided to retain and hold him for now, seeing how he matures. He is small but that's ok, his drive has kicked in and he is insane which is a good thing. So, I may be keeping him and training him, possibly co-owning him if everything goes according to plan.

The ultrasound has been done...No puppies.

Boo.

She is going to have another potential litter with one of her bitches due in June, but I was really hoping for a pup from the other crossing. Now I guess I get to do more pedigree/breeder research and figure out what else will be available.

*sigh*
