When a good breeder does a breeding they are looking to improve on some aspect....there are no perfect confirmation dogs out there! So, you do the breeding and there is a couple of pups in the litter that the breeder might want to "run on" for a time to see how they develop, especially if the parents are not related (outcrossed) therefore possibly maturing at a different pace than what her own line does. After some time, the breeder decides that the pups are nice but not what she was wanting from that litter. They may still be show quality but the breeder decides to sell them as pet puppies. Many of the dogs I ran on and sold could easily finish in the breed ring but didn't improve what I already had so they were sold. I didn't like to sell to show homes, with the exception of a couple of people that I trusted, so these lovely pups went to homes just to be loved or to play performance in. Ask the breeder what drew her to these pups and why she decided to sell them. It is important that the breeder was working with them, getting them out and socialized, teaching basic lead work and table work while she was running them on. Colour is preference only. Temperament and health are much more important.
