You are going to have good breeders and bad breeders everywhere. Just like on this forum we have nice people and sarcastic ones.
Frankly I am quite happy that Rose's great grandfather is from Romania. I have a copy of his Certified Export Pedigree (with roots in Germany, Russia and England) along with all the other papers and a furry baby in my house that everytime we look at her we tell ourselves that there is no way we could have found a better dog. There is such a wonderful combination of spike, stubbornness and eagerness to please in her - she is just amazing.
Also what you have to keep in mind is that sometimes they also get cheated by the breeders with nice websites etc in the US who promise the land and the moon to their beloved dog's offspring. Just like the people in the US get cheated by the same websites.
To me cream is not a fad, it is simply a color and stature preference. I personally like either the very dark golden or the very light golden. Both of which would not be accepted in the US conformation shows.
