SELECTING A BREEDER
When selecting a breeder make sure that both parents of the litter are FCI registered in their home country or with the FCPR. Our member country of Puerto Rico. The FCPR, Federacion Canofilia de Puerto Rico. That the breeder will provide you with an FCI Export Pedigree if you're getting a pup from abroad or registration pedigree from the FCPR, Federacion Canofilia de Puerto Rico, if the pup is born in North America.
Many breeders in the Unites States of White Shepherds claim that they are selling you a Berger Blanc Suisse/White Swiss Shepherd when in fact the dam and sire may not be registered with the FCPR. They might tell you that the parents of the prospective offspring qualify to be BBS/WSS because they have three generations of white shepherds. Remember! If the breeder can not provide current registration of the parents from the FCPR then you may not be able to ever register your dog as a BBS/WSS.
The following breeders in the U.S.A. have agreed to follow the FCI Rules and register their dogs only with the FCPR and Clubs that register the breed as only the Berger Blanc Suisse or White Swiss Shepherd.
1. Berger Blanc Suisse of Faolan Frost - California
2. Wildwood White Swiss Shepherds - Washington State
3. Wynter Spirit Shepherds - Virginia
4. Hula Moon Berger Blanc Suisse - Hawaii
5. Caviar Swiss White Shepherds - Montana
6. Absolute Dream White Swiss Shepherds - California

IMPORTING A DOG
Another option is importing a BBS/WSS from Europe. When considering a European breeder ask for contact information of someone that has one of their puppies here in the U.S.A. or Canada. Contact that puppy owner and ask how they liked the experience with the breeder your considering.

Did the Export Pedigree come in a timely manner?
Did the puppy arrive healthy?
Did the breeder provide the quality of puppy that met the request of the puppy owner?
Has the European breeder been available and helpful for any concerns regarding the puppy?
Would they recommend getting a puppy from this breeder?
