She was tying to get the dog back before it ending up in a shelter, but the owners at the time refused to release the dog willingly. However she is now happy and in her new forever home.

Re: Breeder vs Pet

In short

Breeding
Should be the best of the breed, would be best to have show or working titles if the dog can.

Pet
Any puppy in the breed, that goes to a pet only home. Could be fixed or not (best to fix if your not showing or working the dog).
