i have 5 english springers, just had a litter of puppys,i beleive in selective breeding,i use the same male which i own, and my girls, not only when i think they are ready,i do not over breed nor do i sell my puppys to just anyone.i have had great success with the new owners who contact me and send me pictures of their puppys as they grow up.one owner of one of my puppys just had a litter of 8, 4 of which were tri colored. my male is tri and i have never had a tri puppy, does anyone know if they skip a generation. i would love to get just one tri. any info anyone has about that would be great. thanks bonnie ps i have a picture listed of the mother and puppys if you would like to view.oh not only do i breed but my dogs are all house dogs.have to vacumm alot,but thats ok they are worth it.
