Shirley breeds German Shepherd dogs. I always go visit her when she has a new litter of puppies.

Correct answer: (a) breeds
_________________________

This is a constant state that Shirley breeds German Shepherd dogs. That's why we put the ver in simple present tense.
breed: keep animals for producing young
3 forms: breed, bred, bred

A collective noun for a group of puppies is a litter.

In the UK, 'go to visit' would be the more usual form. Both are possible.
