Connecticut breeder

I have been looking at this breeder from Connecticut, they have a litter due from Ginger soon, the father is Truman. I can't find any clearences done for either of them, I can find some for Truman's offspring but not the parents. I asked the breeder if they have had clearences and proof of it being done she said yes. She did say that their elbows on both parents haven't been done but have never had any problems. Should I continue my search? Here is the site:Fehr Meadow Goldens / Meadowview Goldens Home Page
Thanks for any info, I'm driving my family nuts on my search for a golden. It's been many years since we have had a golden and right now we have a blk lab.

I don't know anything about the breeder you've listed. I do know Cindy Jones in Killingworth who is a breeder, has lovely dogs that are doing it all and thoroughly health tested. Sorry I don't know her kennel name.

I would not purchase any puppy from parents with no elbow clearances.

I would run from this breeder. They market 'english creme' goldens, which is a huge red flag. I only looked up their male, truman, in the offa.org database and NO clearances came up. I'm not even going to bother checking the others. I am sure someone on here can recommend a good breeder to you in your area.

I do know that right now there are two female pups ready to go. Check delmarvagoldens.com for more info.

Try Cloverdale... Ginger Run might also be in Ct. There are lots of good breeders in the New England area.

Fehr Meadows has very few and spotty OFA clearances... You are in New Hampshire? Lots of good breeders in Mass, Vt, and NH....

Thornelea Goldens in Pelham, NH has 2 litters coming up. Carol's puppies tend to go very quickly so I'm not sure how many will be available. Carol has very nice dogs and you will find all the clearances in order.

I have contacted Carol to breed my girl to her Bond. My first golden, born, in 1989, had her bloodlines... She was a terrific dog and so easy to train....

Thank you all for your help. I contacted Carol early in my search, as we have a common friend who sent me to her. She has beautiful and wonderful goldens but her price was a bit much for us right now.This same friend is also a breeder and I know she does all the clearences and she will hopefully be having a litter in May so I am waiting for one of hers.
