Like you, she probably decided at one time or another that it would be a fun thing to do, so she went about breeding without researching or she researched and became defensive and wouldn't listen. Either way, she is breeding from NON show quality dogs. If they are papered and she did all of the required testing, the pups would be sold with papers and the ones who don't make it, get passed on at a cheaper rate to be sold as non breeding pets.
Perhaps she is telling you what you want to hear because she is worried you will try to return her if she isn't going to make you money.
So many inconsistent things about this story. I'm starting to wonder if we are being had by a troll.
