Thank you everyone for the compliments. She was about 14 months in the 3rd pic. She will be entering her 3rd heat soon and I am on the lookout for a nice fawn stud.
Pardon my being nosy, but why are you wanting to breed her? What titles has she earned, if any, and in what areas? Has she had her hips, eyes, elbows and heart checked by the OFA or PennHip to ensure soundness and no genetic traits that will possibly be passed down? Has she been TT'd (Temperament Tested) or earned her Canine Good Citizen? What outstanding qualities does she possess that make her worthy of being bred?

I'm not trying to be rude, but just because she's a great pet, smart and obedient, and looks pretty, or all your friends say they want a pup off her, those are not sufficient enough reasons to breed and add to the already over-population surrounding these dogs. I'm sure others will chime in on this, and they might not be as nice. We're very aggressive when it comes to supporting/preserving the breed in any way possible, and often times it starts with deterring every day people from breeding their every day dogs.

Just because she's not DA doesn't mean her pups aren't gonna be.. there are too many dogs ending up dead, in shelters, or on TV to be breeding dogs with no purpose.. im not gonna sit and lecture just hope you really sit and think about it before you do it ;)
:goodpost: Maybe you should try entering her in a Conformation show or two, and see how she does. Or go just to see how things are done, and see if you can catch a judge afterward to have him/her look over your bitch and tell you what faults she has. But, I really recommend showing her, or doing some other venue with her to earn some titles. Also couple up with a reputable breeder and learn first prior to just breeding your dog. There are so many factors that go into breeding. It's not the same as having an "accidental" child with a woman who was a one night stand. You're not only left with one life to deal with afterward, but anywhere from 5-15 lives to deal with!

What are your plans on insuring they go to responsible homes? I know Harris county can be tough on people that are neglectful/abusive towards animals, especially since I grew up not too far from there. Do have any idea how to write and uphold a contract of sale? Do you know how to screen homes and weed out the would-be bad owners?

We can't tell you what to do with your dog, but we can offer suggestions/guidelines to assist you. I only hope you take our advice and see that the world is already overpopulated and don't contribute to that.
