I'm not sure how everyone on here feels about breeders, and I don't mean to offend anyone. I personally like being able to trace lineage, etc. I currently have an AKC Blue Merle male, and I'd really like a red bi or tri female (no, I don't plan to breed them...)
I've found a gorgeous girl that I'd really like to take home, but she's only registered through ASCA and she's $450. I'm not sure what all I can do with a dog who is only registered through ASCA. I'd really like to get more involved in obedience and other competitions but again, I'm not sure what's available for ASCA dogs. I'm all kinds of confused. All of the info I've found so far on ASCA is kind of discouraging (it's a sham, etc.) Can anyone fill me in?
