No info about clearances anywhere on their website. So probably stay away.

Is there a reason why you are limiting yourself to mass exclusively?

Get on goldenbreedersresource, you will find excellent connections and possibly puppies. Remember all 4 clearances....

Very good breeders are typically only producing litters that they themselves want a puppy from. So they're not going to produce pups on a convenient schedule. A bad breeder might have five or ten in a year, so they always have pups on hand. The patience is so worth it. Who cares about a few months' wait when it means that your pup has a much better shot at more years with you?

Yeah, it stinks to wait. When I bought my car, I ended up getting one off the lot with a slightly different range of options than the one I would have ordered, because order times had stretched out to 4+ months.

With a dog, no way. I'm not compromising even the teeniest bit on health in order to get a dog earlier. It's a long, stressful period of anticipation, but it's also fun in a way, since you can share your excitement. GRF can be a great place to come and talk about the breed, the things you'll need for your pup, and to get some moral support on your countdown clock. This crowd will never tell you to shut up about the pup.

So spend those months figuring out how to give your dog the absolute best possible shot at a long, healthy life with you. For example, did you know that keeping a healthy weight on your dog can give you almost two additional healthy years of life? Dogs at a lean weight, on average, live almost two years longer than dogs who are moderately overweight, and they experience many geriatric diseases (heart disease, arthritis, etc.) two years later. Even some cancers show up at lower rates in lean dogs!

Heck, you could spend six months just reading the dog food threads.
