Run......there are way to many red flags on that fb page. On my way out the door this morning, I am sure some of the others can chime in. If not I will give a more detailed answer this evening.

They are selling at least three different breeds of dogs. That would be a red flag for me.

Bummer I can't seem to find puppies that I can afford.

My recommendation is to put $100 away per month. In a year, you will have enough to purchase a puppy from a reputable breeder. If you're able to put more away each month, you may be able to get your puppy sooner. Chances will be in your favor of having a healthier dog if you purchase from a reputable breeder doing all clearances and screenings. Feeding a quality kibble will also set you back $50-80/month as will routine veterinary care. An alternative is a golden retriever rescue. They sometimes have puppies which will be from indeterminate breedings but at least you won't be padding the pockets of a back yard breeder who is intentionally breeding carelessly.

Am I correct that J2Kennels are selling for $1,000? I am sure you can find a nice bred puppy for that price. They have no pedigree listed on the website to check health clearances. They may have them if you ask. And I must agree that the fact that they breed several types of dogs puts me off.

Definitely run away from this "breeder". No sorts of pedigrees or clearances. I would not buy from these people, especially when they have three different breeds of dogs on their property.

again, you are posting the same thing on many different threads. I don't understand--Why don't you contact the list of recommended breeders that was provided to you on another thread?

I have a friend that got a golden from them, he's 14 months old and he is gorgeous, I don't think he has had any health issues
