I never buy the unplanned litter when they are charging money. I always think they bred the two dogs and don't have breeding rights to one of them. If it was truly an accidental breeding wouldn't you just want good homes?

You have a point I'll just wait to buy a registered puppy thank you for helping me out!
Not just registered. AKC registration means nothing when it comes to health. You want to find a breeder who does the four core clearances for Goldens (hips, elbows, heart, eyes) and the recommended DNA tests as a bare minimum.

I would never get an 'un-papered' dog! All the reasons spelled out above! Better off to find a 'rescue' dog....!
Would you buy a used car without knowing anything about it? Mileage is set back to 0, no maintenance history, accidents, been in flood, etc. etc. ?
