Sooo many details and sooo much confusion! One breeder says clearances are not done because it was a surprise breeding, the other said champions all the way but pups are on antibiotics for some nasty infection... We just want a wonderful family pet. We want our first big dog and our vet suggested a golden... His words were actually "you can't go wrong with a golden for your family" ... Of course then followed by be careful. Clearances are nice, but hips, eyes, heart anything can skip generations!! Need some suggestions of some breeders in my area (grand blanc). Like i said a nice puppy. Temperament is important as well as health. Please help!! I have contacted several in the area, and i am not sure. Thanks in advance!!
