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."
