Here, I'm starting a list of breeders in SoCal, from the Mexican border to the Central Valley and Central Coast. I'll add to it as I go. Most will be what I believe to be good and reputable breeders, but there may be a few cautionary tales listed here, too. Feel free to add to my list.
A "*" means that I know the breeder personally and recommend them.
A "!" means that I would not recommend getting a puppy from this breeder.
All * and ! are my own personal opinions, as of the date of this posting, and may change after the time to edit the post expires.
Okay, here we go...
