What does licensed mean to you? Just curious.....

Reason why I ask is I've heard of puppy mills or commercial breeders being licensed. They have to be in order to sell puppies through petstores...

How were you referred to the breeder? Is she a member of the Golden Retriever Club of America and also a local Golden Club or an Obedience Club etc? Does she train her dogs for a hobby and compete with them? Does she follow the GRCA Code of Ethics for health clearances on the parents of the litter? How did you do the research on this breeder to make sure she was a conscientious and reputable breeder?

I do hope you will research what health certifications a responsible breeder should have on their dogs and press for proof of those, if you have not already. Your description did not sound like a responsible breeder and if your family is going to shoulder higher health risks, you deserve to know that before you pick up any puppy. Get parent dogís registration names or numbers an plug them in on www.ofa.org. If they look like the first screen shotís green entries (all of them) your good. If it shows nothing or looks like the last screen shot, there is substantial risk and you will have to decide if your okay with that.
