Gus's parents might be cleared for hips, but Gus is still too young. You simply can not get a hip clearance until the dog is 2 yrs old.
And, no the golden doodle does not have AKC papers. No designer dogs have AKC papers, AKC only deals with purebreds.
To many many people, it is the same as breeding 2 random breeds.
Even assuming a golden doodle was considered a pure bred, breeding a purebreed golden doodle to a purebred golden retriever results in a mixed breed dog
