Reputable breeders are not very likely to sell you a puppy on full registration. If your heart is set on the English style, you need to find your breeder now, ask him or her to mentor you, and learn all you can about the breed. Eventually, you will hopefully end up with a puppy on Limited Registration, which the breeder might be willing to lift once you have gotten clearances and participated in some dog events, even earning a basic title or two.
If you want to get involved in dog sports, and perhaps eventually breed, you need to have a lot of patience. You will need to prove yourself to the good breeders before they will entrust you with a nice puppy.
