now i'm just curious if i can find out more about this dog. but she's unwilling to tell me as i think she's afraid to learn the truth.
Did you see my post above? There is no record of either dog on OFA. Which means there is 100% no elbow clearances and likely no clearances at all. The parents registered names and numbers were listed in the AKC marketplace post.

What is done is done. Your sister will probably have a wonderful dog. Was it the best thing no. But if it is in a loving home just leave her be. We have had to backyard bred Goldens with no issues. As long as it isn't a puppymill I am sure she will have a lovely dog.

I would recommend to her that she purchase health insurance on him. This will help should he develop serious health issues. With neither parent having clearances, chances of him developing issues are greater than if he had a pedigree backed by dogs with hip, elbow, heart and eye clearances.

From one over-protective sister to another, I tend to agree with this. Was it the best decision to go that route? Probably not. However, let her enjoy her new puppy and have so much fun being an "aunt" to the fur ball! = ) And health insurance is excellent advice! We have it on our boys and were so grateful when we were dealing with unexpected and expensive emergency surgery (bowel obstruction). I would never go without it whether the dog is a rescue or a grand champion ... because we love them all the same!

I have added Wanner's Macy and Spring Grove's Sir Tuckerson James to K9data with the information I could find, so at least next time someone searches for them, they will be found.

Kalm Sean, Moongate, harborview - highly recommend. Stay away from Golden glory - very unethical

places i am looking:

Austin Wanner

Maureen Quinlan

Marian Hiemstra (Maplemoon Kennel)


any thoughts on this approach? this will be my first dog so i obviously want to find the best dog i can.

any others to recommend?
Did you ever end up getting the puppy form Maureen Quinlan? How was your experience with her?

Oh my. This old thread was drug up from the bottom of the sea. This is bait for me. LOL! "Family" breeder? Sounds so nice, doesn't it? Sounds positively wholesome. Who wouldn't want a pup from a "family breeder?"

I wonder what that makes me, then.
