I once had papers on my dogs, when I had a Wife that dealt with it and gave a crap about such things.
Since the beginning, I have bred the dogs that lived. I never gave a rat's ass, where they came from. The only lines my dogs have that matter, are WORKING blood lines.
I don't sell pups. I give pups away to working homes that will try their best to work the dog to death. I pick the first breeding for a Gyp, and get pick. I have the option for a pup out of every litter a Gyp has. I take pick of litter from that first cross, and I place it. I rarely take pups from subsequent litters, unless someone loses a dog, and wants a quick replacement. This way I keep my lines scattered coast to coast, North to South, and not even a natural disaster is going to alter my ability to get a pup when I need one.
My dogs never had an inbreeding coefficient higher than 10%, until now. I am only doing this with one line, but we bred father to Daughter. I spent my entire life, trying to breed the perfect working dog. I got lucky and produced one. We are seeing if we can now lock those traits in.
