I received an email asking if I recommended this breeder. I had never heard of them (despite only living 30 minutes away), so I looked up their website. I wanted to get some of your opinions.

Well, they wouldn't be at the top of my list to refer people to, but at least they do clearances on their dogs, and have some clearances behind them. Their heart clearances are not listed on the OFA website so a buyer would want to see them and make sure they were done by a specialist and not a practitioner, and that CERF clearances were up to date (within 12-15 months of the birth of a litter, and done annually, but these are things that should be checked on anyway.

Their warranty is only good for a year, but on the plus side it does not require the return of the original puppy.

On the other hand, for more money, they are willing to sell a breeding/show prospect on full registration-and I am curious as to how they would even recognize a show prospect since they do not compete with their dogs in any venue that I can tell.
