Anyone familiar with Angel Wings Golden retrievers in central PA?

A friend of ours just recently got a pup from this breeder and they have several males remaining. We are currently searching for a new golden to join our family and are curious if anyone on this forum has had any experience or know of anyone with pups obtained from them

I would run so fast that you wouldn't even see anything but a dust cloud. Five seconds of looking and I see all kinds of bizarre fake claims about championships (what the heck is a vice world winner?) and some highly questionable eastern European kennel names that seem to crop up in the disreputable breeders who claim to be breeding "English" Goldens but are actually breeding poorly structured light dogs from eastern Europe and selling them with false claims of health and ancestry.

And, sure enough, no listings at offa.org of any of the dogs I looked up from their site. In fact, they say "Alex is a Russian import out of the Rus Pekos kennel, one of the top European kennels. Alex is a Junior Russian Champion and also has his Russian and American (OFA, CERF) clearances on hips, elbows, eyes, and heart." However, there's no listing for Alex in the OFA database. For hips, that means they either never did them or he failed and they hid the results. Same for elbows. For heart and eyes, it's possible to get the clearance exam without registering it in the database, but in that case, it would be highly misleading to call those exams "OFA" or "CERF."

Oh, and they outright lie several times on their "Why English?" page.

Thank you for the quick repsonses. We suspected that but since our knowlege in this area in mimimal we needed to hear from experieced people.

We have been in contact with Darrowby & Goldnote who we think have really good reputations on this forum. Would that be correct assumption?

If you are looking in PA I strongly recommend contacting Harborview Goldens.

Please don't buy a puppy from this kennel. Much of the information is incorrect and although there are some well know names on the sire side, the dam's side is pretty much unknown. The quality of the 2 girls is not brilliant and a junior champion means they have won 2 junior classes! Annef
