    Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    I've been googling around after contacting a breeder about her puppies. She adheres to a low vaccine protocol. What does that mean exactly? I've seen different things by different vets. If you were a breeder and you had this protocol, what would that mean to you?
