We got HRH as a retired breeder from Missouri. Had her shipped here via transport. She was 3 1/2 But most retired girls I've seen offered since have been about 5.
she was "mostly" potty trained, we concluded the piddle accidents at first might have been UTI related.
She was well trained and very well mannered although she has unlearned some of those manners. (its Daddy's fault)
She does have MAJOR fear issues, but we have come to the conclusion that it's just part of her personality.
I'm sure it depends on the breeder what they do with their girls when it's retirement time, but it's another avenue that sounds like what you are looking for.
