Default Any winter white breeders anywhere near poland?

Do you know if I can get a purebreed, pedigree winter wite hamster to possibly start a breeding line here in poland, anywhere relatively close to my country? As far as I know there are seven polish hamsteries, but they are all syrian breeders. I considered starting from "the bottom", but the pet shop dwarves are really hard case, it would be fool's luck to pick out a hamster that don't have hybrid ancestors or at least would be healthy and live long life

I don't believe breeding from Pet shop dwarves would be considered ethical breeding as you don't know what health issues are in their genetics. Breeding is better done for the betterment of the species, unless of course you bring home a pregnant hamster from a pet shop but there is no way to start ethical breeding from the bottom. You would need hamsters with a good ancestry.

Maybe others members may know better about this subject? This is just my opinion

Yes, that, I know, so, I was asking if there are any reputable breeders of winter whites around by country, like, in germany, or even holland, where I could buy pedigree WW's, because in my country there are no pedigree dwarf breeders, just very few Syrian hamsteries

Yet, every reputable line also started with some hammies with unknown ancestors. But of course that wouldn't do with russians, and I know it, since pet shop hamsters awere most probably all hybridised at some point.

I'd be very surprised if you couldn't find something in Germany, have you tried posting on a German forum?

I am sure you could find a purebred WW easier then people in the states could. We have one purebred breeder in the entire country and they only adopt to people in California. Check Germany, they probably have something.

Actually i'm terrible at german and had hard time researching any german sites, so I kinda went the easy way, asking for hamstery names here, where I can just write english maybe google translate would help me, but i don't really trust it with translating anything mor complex than single words

I find my way around, shop etc on German sites no problem with the help of Google translate & I don't speak a word of German so I really think you should give it a try, you could always mention in your post that you are using online translation in case it doesn't come out exactly right, I usually do that if I email German retailers just in case I'm making a total fool of myself

I think I found one still functioning hamstery in Czech :3 though... I'll probably delay actual breeding to when my financial situation becomes more stable, as I am to-be-student
