Thoughts on EveningStar Kennels?

Anyone have any experience or thoughts on EveningStar Kennels? I've seen a couple mixed reviews online. Looking to add a golden puppy to the family.

Stay. Away. Bad puppy mill. Unhealthy, poorly bred dogs. A bad situation. I've been there.

Just wondering how you're searching for a breeder as it seems like you're coming up with a slew of less than desirable kennels. Have you contacted your local GR Club for a referral and I've seen on other threads you've been provided good leads on reputable breeders--please don't fall for the slick marketing that's lacking any substance behind it.

What's wrong with Evening Star? They are members of GR club.

I have been searching online for breeders in my area. While I've owned goldens my whole life, I'm very new at understanding the terms breeders use and what the health clearances mean. The only two I've seen people recommend to me so far are Sunbeam and Autumnwind. I will certainly look into these, but I can't imagine these are the only 2 responsible breeders in all of so cal. I did contact my local gr club and I received a form letter back, and all it said was they were not aware of any litters at this time, and that they would not recommend a breeder only a litter. I hope it's not a problem for me to ask about individual breeders on this forum....I thought that getting advice and feedback from others was what this forum was about.

Seriously, you've been around here long enough to know that there is more to being a reputable member than just being a member of the GR club (which anyone can be). I realize you're more than happy with your pup that was a result of someone's pets having a litter but it appears the OP is interested (or at least open) to finding a reputable breeder--how about you show a little support.

Being a member of the GR club is not why I asked the question. Seriously what is wrong with Evening Star? It is a legit question. Wow!

I just visited this Charlemagne Golden Retrievers - Home Page breeder yesterday. The breeding isn't planned until next month so puppies will not be ready until May but I was very impressed with her and her dogs.
