    I've had a difficult time over the past six months finding the right breeder. I've been able to find three breeders in the US, all of whom have negative reviews throughout the past decade all over the internet including this forum (think Lionsden, and lone wolf Filas to a lesser extent). I haven't been able to find a single breeder in my own country, Canada. I've been able to find one breeder in South America who is willing to ship internationally and that is Canil Itanhandu, who are also controversial. I've read back through this forum all the way to 2012 looking for breeders and each one I read about I've found is either no longer in operation or no longer has a valid webaddress/contact info. Can anyone help me in locating a breeder?

    Fila Brasileiro, CBKC or CAFIB lines are both fine I don't need a top of the line working dog.

    As an update for anyone else interested in the future, I have found that the following North American kennels are either no longer operating or do not have any contact info on the internet:

    - Eshabeta II Kennel in Washington

    -De la Luna Kennel in California

    -Clelia Kruel who was a top American breeder for 25+ years.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction of finding operational North American Fila kennels, or even help me figure out how to get in contact with any of the people above, I would be very grateful.
