I spoke with a breeder that I found through a reputable golden retriever club. All the reviews that I have found on her have been good. Never saw anything bad reported. She has proof of all her clearances, conducts interviews, and only breeds her dogs once or twice a year. The litter arrived, but a couple of the puppies did not survive the birth. The dog did have to have a c-section. And from what I read, a dead puppy can prevent the labor from progressing. Should I be concerned about the health of the puppies that were born? I lost my beloved golden to lymphoma earlier this year, and miss the companionship, but I just don't know if it is normal for there to be puppies that don't make it through the birth. I want a puppy, but I want a healthy puppy. thanks for your help!
