No worries

The store clerk must have been confused. When I wanted to start breeding my male, it was very easy to find a girl. In fact, most that I have seen for sale are female. Even so, it would be a professional breeder's job to worry about the future of the captive race. If you were able to buy her, she isn't needed by a professional breeder. That's not to say you can't breed her if you really want to put in all the time and effort. Good luck! Russians are great!
