The above was not directed at you, Jeff, just in general...but you also didn't mention that Roo came from many generations of appropriately health-tested and conformationally sound Ridgebacks (as evidenced by both field titles and conformation Championships) and likely was sold with a "return to breeder" clause and a health guarantee. Most breeders who aren't "show" breeders don't do any of that.
In fact, in my nearly 10 years with Ridgeback Rescue, I have never seen a casual breeder who does these things. Why? Because those things take significant effort and they cost money. Those breeders who aim to breed only 1-2 litters don't want to invest in those things (or even know how to go about doing things like pedigree research or even how to get a dog's eyes CERFed)...those who aspire to breed more frequently either because they like selling puppies or because they want the money don't do what truly responsible breeders do because they don't care enough about what happens to their buyers and puppies after the sale.
Over the last 12 years of being "in" Ridgebacks, I have heard over and over again about how it's possible to breed "great pets" and not show. Fine. I accept that, I truly do. One certainly doesn't need a special pass to go get a dog health tested or take back dogs of their breeding who have lost their homes or permanently identify each puppy with a microchip registered back to them as the breeder. But I have yet to actually see anyone other than those who are often snobbishly called "show breeders" consistently put any of that into practice.
