Welcome. I agree that temperament and health are most important.

IMO, it is hard to guarantee good lifelong health in any dog, whether it is from a show breeder or not. Most ethical show breeders will take great care to breed healthy dogs free from genetic health issues, and keep their puppies in a clean and healthy environment. But good health is a result of many factors.

That being said, there are some very ethical breeders who have well-socialized puppies with great personalities, whose dogs don't have many health issues.

I suggest you review the archives under the thread, "Breeders."

Hope this helps.
