Problem With Breeder Distance…. Help? (question Is Long.. .but Please Read It.. Thanks.)?

So, a Pap breeder contacted me saying that she had a 9 month old male that she was willing to sell to me. Here is the first email I got from her:
I saw you posted to the group and that you were or are looking for a pap for agility… I think I may have what you are looking for if you are looking for a male that is. Ringo is a beautiful Red and white with a black mask and boy is he fast.
Ringo is about 9 months old and has lots of energy. I breed only once in awhile and the sire to this little guy is only 5 pts away from his AKC championship.
His grandsire was an import and is a champion , international champion.

I emailed back:
I did want a female, but it doesn’t really matter- male will work! He looks great, how old is he?
I’m in Michigan… where abouts are you located?
She emailed back:
Ringo is about 9 months old, knows how to use the doggie door. He loves to run, he loves to love men, he is now playing with my new puppies which are 9 weeks old..an oops breeding, another story there.
I am in Enid, Oklahoma and I do ship and I have never had any trouble with air travel. I ship Delta, continental ..the cost of shipping is $275 unless you want to fly down and pick him up at the airport, which some people do.
If you want him on a limited registration I will sell him for $500, full Registration is $900.
He would make a great agility dog for sure. I just haven’t had the time or energy to sit and train them correctly. If you want to call me and talk about him my phone number is 580-242-1893.
He is up todate on shots, and he is on heart worm protection..

What do you think?
Some of the things she says… she doesn’t have the time to train them, she advertised on Puppyfind, and she had an oops breeding… makes me a bit weary of her…
I can’t go and check out her kennel or I would. (She lives in OK, I live in MI). I am going to email as many questions as possible, and I will call before buying, if I do.
I know most rep. breeders don’t use Puppyfind, but I’ve seen one or two that did…
What do you think? There’s no website for me to check out about her, I tried Googling “Shari’s Klassy Papillons”, and I got nothing.
Thanks!

A Question About House Training A Small Dog?

I have 2 papillons, the first one I got 4 months ago. She wasn’t hard to train, it took about a week and a half. The second one, I’ve had for a week, and she doesn’t seem to even be catching on. She refuses to go outside at all (lived in a kennel her whole 2 yrs.) and when we put her there she darts back in. She has done her business outside, but its difficult to know if she’s catching on to it, she doesn’t seem to be. She does her job inside also, anywhere and everywhere. Any suggestions? Are some small dogs just not trainable? I need as much advise as possible before I give up on her and let her go.

Question For Papillon Owners . . .?

I am considering a puppy in this breed for my family, I was hoping someone could answer some questions for me about them:
1. How much do they shed? Will I have a hair problem, trying to keep my house clean?
2. Is this a dog that I cant trust not to take off to explore, or can I walk it without a leash (After some training of course)?
3. Can they be trusted alone for an 8 hour stint while my husband and I are working?
4. How would you rate their tendency to bark?
5. Does the long hair tangle and need consistant grooming?
6. Does this dog like to swim?
7. Is the male or female better behaved?
8. How much does this dog generally go for (Cost)?
Sorry I had so many questions. As many answers as I can get would be great. Thank you all.

Papillon Dog Question?

I was planning of getting a Papillon Dog, and I would like to know more information based on personal experience from anyone that DO raise/breed this type of dog.
By personal experience, I mean like:
. Is it easy to train?
. How’s hard to keep up with it (daily walk, grooming…etc)?
. How aggressive can it get (biting, barking at it’s owner)?
. If it does become aggressive, is there anyway to make it stop?
