Catherine, if they are smart, no breeders will be bringing any puppies. In fact, I'm pretty sure this show doesn't even allow unentered dogs to be there. Last year, I had to spend (waste!) a lot of time asking people to leave that had puppies at the show. It is against AKC rules and several people were threatening to call AKC to get a rep on the premises. All in all, for the sake of everyone, no, there will not be any puppies there.
Obviously, a national specialty is a great place to meet some excellent breeders, but not to see puppies.
