This is mainly to Karlin because her box is full.
I've read your rules Karlin and they are all for your safety and to cut down on complaints within the board, but I was wondering why you don't have a recommended breeder list. One that includes breeders who scan their studs and bitches, are generally well respected and have good facilities, and/or are know for producing good dogs. Going through eight different breeders before I found Anna was hard. 5 were in horrible conditions and 2 more produced on a puppy mill level. I could have really used a list that is recommended by some of your top posters/people who you trust. Wouldn't that make it easier to also boycott those that don't take the welfare of their dogs seriously, or ones that don't scan their dogs?
