Its bad when you dont take the advice from experienced and knowledgable breeders. She could have taken the time to DO something with the dog, but instead just bred her and made more money. The experienced breeders can do it because they know what they are doing.. She even made a big deal about heath clearances on her website, yet didnt go to a cardiologist. Also, she didnt test before the first breeding..so thats a lie! I personally traveled 2 1/2 hrs one way to get my dog her clearance done by a cardiologist. I dont usually come on these threads but myself being a newbie in show/obedience world and trying to do things the right way (getting clearances done and actually doing stuff with my dogs) I get upset when others are cutting corners..for what? To make money. Sorry if the only things she has done with her dog are those few clearances she made money.
This is from her website:
"We take pride in our breeding program and our puppies. For this reason we breed on a very limited basis. Our number one priority is the health of our puppies. All our dogs of breeding age are health clearance. We certify their eyes, hips, and elbows through CERF (Canine Eye Registry Foundation) and the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) prior to breeding."
" As a small hobby breeder of quality golden retrievers our focus is on producing healthy, well-adjusted, sociable, quality puppies."
Just saw her info on K9 data..sorry these dogs have NOTHING behind them ..on the 5 generation behind Abby there are 6 dogs wi hips..way way back.. they look like BYB bred ... She needs to start over, completely, to do things right.
