I have a 4 year old black lab' bitch who's performing very well for me and I'd like to take a litter from her using a friends dog. Trouble is, she came to me via a couple who were breaking up & her papers are missing (which is a real pity as I'd love to know where she was from) She's definitely pedigreed and from good stock by the look of her. She came from around the Milnathort area originally.
My question is, assuming she has decent hip scores & PRA testing done, would a lack of known history be something that should make me think twice about taking a litter from her? I would really like a pup from her for myself. Obviously I'm not in it to make money, but it would be reassuring to know I'm not selling prospective buyers a pup (as it were ) The sire would have papers, & she would obviously be shown to prospective buyers
