Depends what you want it for.. for me if it works the way I wanted it to and it had the right blood behind it then I'd breed.

Was thinking the same. It's just i have this bitch russell x lakeland that was got as a family pet and she's bolted a few out on walks, but not sure if she's up to the grade as i wouldn't know what to be looking for in a proper working dog.

If there’s a physical fault in a line of dogs that you don’t know about then you can be fore given for breeding from it but if you knowingly perpetuate a physical fault then that’s just daft, just buy a decent dog in the first place.

Do you mean if you had an outstanding bitch with an underbite you wouldn’t bred from her?

personally if it was me and the bitch was outstanding and not a middle of the road bitch then I would breed of her as with the right selective breed the under shot can be fixed

About 4 seasons of hard graft without fault and find out if her litter siblings are working and her parents grandparents etc then search for a suitable stud with same blood line if possible.seems like a lot of trouble to go through just to breed a litter but if everyone done the same the country would not be full of white terriers.jmho.

No ,it’s not an outstanding  bitch, I was replying to jrt90 who by the sounds of it is going to breed some pups for the sake of it knowing full well it’s got a bad mouth.
