Kudos for not breeding your girl who did not clear. That said, you are less likely to find someone willing to sell you a mature dog for this purpose. Frankly, unless you have a proven record with your current dog (ie titles and full clearances in place) and an established reputation in the working Golden community people are not going to sell you a breeding prospect(at least not people who have done the clearances and proving that you should--and if they are selling a bitch who has passed her clearances, after making that investment into her, then it likely means she lacks something that accounts for their being willing to sell her!) The people who will sell a girl no questions asked are often the ones who would have bred a girl whose hips did not clear, and that is likely not where you want to go to establish a good breeding program.We have an 8 year old AKC registered male and want to breed him. We purchased a female puppy a couple of years ago and with the intent to breed her and hunt with her. As it turned out she had hip problems and we felt it best not to breed her and are looking for another female to breed with. We want an adolescent dog so we don't have to wait for her to mature.
Please let me know if you have or know of a started female for purchase.
