She said he was a very handsome pup, but that we won't really be able to tell until after he gets out of the gawky stage. She said to start handling class and the like because he does have a good pedigree, so I'll want to get him ready since he has potential. I definitely plan on breeding him if he passes all of his clearances and I title him. His ancestry is full of good clearances (mom and grandmom both have excellent hips if I'm remembering correctly) So hopefully the good genes will flow down for when I get his clearances done. My goal is to get his CH if he has what it takes and then get some obedience and agility titles. I'd love to see how he does in tracking as well because he has quite the nose (found a piece of bread under 2 feet of snow the other day when we were hiking in the woods!). My breeder plans on being with me every step of the way with him when it comes to showing and she's offered to be a mentor to me when/if I start breeding. We'll see what the future holds!
