What exactly is --pulled directly from their website..
Current Licensed Veterinarian Health Clearances: Heart, Lungs, Eyes, Hips/Elbows, All Normal
They use the same sire for all their females, do not see a single title, do other breeds..cant tell exactly how old they are but having a feeling bred TJ too young..too many red flags from what I am seeing.

It sounds like you need to take a quick look at the thread on clearances and what they should like because it sure sounds like they just have their vet do "clearances."
http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...look-like.html (What clearances look like)
Hips and elbows have to be sent to OFA (or PennHip for hips), and you can see what the certificates look like in that thread. Eyes must be cleared annually by a veterinary opthamologist and hearts by a veterinary cardiologist. Never heard of a clearance for lungs
A quick check of OFA does not show any clearances listed for Kyler.
There are a lot of good breeders in and near Ohio (Jennifer K at Shilo, for example) and you may want to check them out first.
If things like clearances are not in order, I usually advise people not to go visit because all Golden puppies are cute and can be hard to resist!

Thanks Linda, I had no clue clearances needed to be sent away so I appreciate that link. I am very new at this and have just begun looking so all the info is a great help! The puppies aren't born yet I was just gonna go check out the parents and condition of the kennels, but you all have definitely got me thinking.
