You could not give me a puppy from this breeder for free. There are incomplete health clearances for multiple generations on the dogs she has listed on k9data and OFA and the risk is too big for perfectly avoidable major health problems. The code of ethics for Golden breeders has been in place for many years and at this point it is inexcusable for anyone to be breeding Goldens without full clearances on hips, heart, elbows and eyes for multiple generations. To be doing it says that the breeder is cutting corners and using puppies to make money. You can do so much better than this and feel good about giving your money to a reputable hobby breeder. If you haven't done research on this forum, it's a great place to learn about clearances and reputable breeders. Just use the search feature at the top and enter a term like "New England breeder" "New YOrk breeder" "MA breeder" WWW.GRCA.org is also a great place to find puppy referral information by state and by region. A puppy is a huge investment, don't give your money to someone who is farming puppies for money.

You can do a search on this forum, she has been discussed before. I don't know this person or anything about her dogs but not sure any really good breeder would advertise their pups on "puppy find" or any broker type selling venue.

Thank you both very much. I did have reservations because she has several 3 week old pups who will be available in August. From what I have seen, the wait tends to be MUCH longer. She did tell me both the mom and dad are AKC Registered and have OFA certifications, and have amazing personalities. I know that there is a ton more to checking credentials, but it sounds like it may not be an option worth persuing. I have been doing some reading on this forum regarding finding breeders. It is so discouraging, I know it sounds impatient, but we really wanted to get a dog within the next few months. We had to say goodbye to our 17 year old lab a few months ago, and we are just really ready and eager to welcome a pup into our homes and hearts soon. Thanks again for your straightforward opinion. Although we are chomping at the bit to get this done, we also don't want to support someone doing something unethical and unsafe for the breed

I understand 100% how absolutely awful it is to be living without a dog in your home when you are a dog family who has had to say goodbye to a special dog and are waiting on a puppy. The vast majority of the people on this forum understand how tough it is because they've been there. Unfortunately, the demand for carefully bred Golden puppies from good breeders far exceeds the supply. It is going to be a waiting process unless you get lucky and find someone who happens to have had a home fall through for some reason or ended up with a much larger litter than anticipated and kept a small wait list. IT happens, but not very often.

Being open to travel is the best way to shorten your wait time, make a circle on the map and figure out how far you're willing to drive and search every inch. Make a map of every airport hub that's 2 hour flight distance and search those regions. I've flown twice for puppies and it's been very easy each time. If you research and make sure you have referrals from people, there is no reason why you can't fly to pick up a puppy from someone. Both my dogs now are from breeders who aren't local and they have been wonderful and supportive via email and phone call for years.

Consider fostering for a rescue to get your dog fix, they are generally desperate for help where I live and it might help you heal. Whatever you decide, don't rush into a situation until you're very sure and have verified clearances and checked references etc. This site is pretty helpful if you'll reach out with registered names of a breeder's dogs.
