    Personally I look at their health clearances, pedigrees, and pictures of both parents to start with. I've learned to ask for things like EIC and CNM testing if it isn't listed with a proper number on one or both the parents. Price and shipping if needed would be my next consideration. What I'm going to use the dog for Hunt test or field trial, hunting/home or whatever? I would want the parents to be proficient in the tasks I would want the pup to perform.

    In addition to health clearances, I like repeat breedings with good success/type dog I want from the previous litter, if you are lucky enough to find one. If not, I like to either know both dogs personally or have someone I trust very well know the parents. I also like to try to find similar crosses with the bloodlines and see if they produced the type dog I want.
