I live in upstate SC and my husband and I are going through hell in bringing home a dog of our own. People who know me also know that living with dogs is a need just like breathing, eating, and spending time with family. Sadly sometimes bad things come together all at once and you end up on a different path than the one you planned on. This has happened with our Cardigan Corgi plans. We were on a waitlist with a dream breeder, but the breeding didn't take. Then their friends did not have puppies or a litter coming, then my own searches couldn't find any in our region (the states of NC, SC, GA, and TN), and the one available male we could find gave us too many red flags. So we scratched off Cardigan Corgis because I emotionally am unable to wait another entire year. The goal is to housebreak, crate train, and get the puppy settled over the summer because I have four hour blocks on two days of the week next semester (Fall) that a brand new puppy simply can't hold it over, so we need a dog NOW (or in June/July) in order to make this work.
So what now? We had a few breeds picked out as good matches with dog meetings(AKC shows), talking to breeders, and mountains of research behind each. So now we have settled on a Smooth or a Rough collie; the only important factor is an appropriate temperament for service work. Secondarily I REALLY REALLY want it to be male. Nothing else matters. The challenge? Once again it seems that no one has available litters...some who do that I've found so far we ended up rejecting because of other people's experiences. I really don't want to go to yet another breed; this one has qualities we really like and in some areas need.
I've written to the state directors of the American Collie Club (SC, NC, GA, and TN) in an effort to find someone. If you happen to know a breeder within a 300 mile radius of Central, SC (or those close to that border), I would be incredibly grateful.
