As a responsible breeder, we spent many months researching pedigrees and looking at various dogs, in person whenever possible such as at Nationals and Regional Specialties, and made sure Jam had all her health testing complete as well as the potential sire. Additionally, there were hours spent speaking to and meeting potential puppy people and even mentoring some of them. We literally spent thousands of dollars to do this special breeding, as the pedigree was exceptional and we all had high hopes for a fantastic litter. But in breeding as in life, there are no guarantees and this breeding for whatever reason, did not take.
On the upside, Jam is healthy and happy and will return to her role as a therapy dog, where she was sorely missed. She will continue her modeling career, get back to training and competitions and we plan on breeding her this coming summer.
