came across this post, and was curious what might be in my field guide about breeding and this is what is from the National Audobon Society Field Guide to North American Reptiles and Amphibians

Breeding: Terrestrial adults breed in spring, in river headwaters, Eggs laid singly, on submerged timber. Hatching larvae, about 5/8", may transform during or following 2nd year at 3-6". Neotenic larvae mature at about 8". Larvae cannabalize smaller larvae and eat Tailed frog tadpoles and insects.....

I know its not much, and I'm sure this book is common, but thought I'd throw it up here incase it had something you didnt know.

Ema,
The problem is actually quite the opposite, The larvae are common and easy to find but the adults are more rare and tough to find. If it were the other way around I suspect many more people would keep the species because adults are hardy and good captives while larvae are a little more tough.

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!
