Personally, I would keep looking. Unless their website is not up to date, it looks like they only have 2 dogs, which they breed to each other. Rebel does not have a hip clearance listed on OFA, he may have had his hips cleared through OVC, but you need the clearance number to be able to independently verify the clearance. His eye clearance is also out of date, it may have been updated and not sent in to OFA. Eyes need to be cleared yearly (CERF), the breeder should have a hard copy if they have been updated. He is out of standard for a male at 85 lbs. His pedigree on K9data appears to have no champions in it. He also has Bonnieview Kennels in Ontario, who I would avoid like the plague. Little Miss Molly, they do not give the kennel prefix to check the clearances, I found one listed on OFA for Pheasanthill Little Miss Molly. If it is the correct one, she has hips and elbows and an outdated CERF exam. There is no heart clearance listed, you would need to ask the breeder for that and an up to date eye clearance. Again there are no titled dogs in her pedigree (based on a prefix of Pheasant Hill). The do not show their dogs in any venue, which would prove that they are breeding dogs that meet the breed standard or can do what goldens are bred to do. Maybe someone who is better with looking up clearances can have more success.
Are you aware they are not planning a breeding until the fall 2013 or spring 2014?
