Whether you buy one of my puppies or someone else’s ask yourself the following questions:
- Are the dams and sires health certified- hip scored
- Are the dams and sires eye certified?
If not move on. Goldens are prone to have problems in these areas. You will be able to get a puppy for less money, but is it really worth it if your puppy dies at age 3 or 4 or has hip dysplasia and you end up having surgery on your dog? At the end of the day what have you really saved?
Now, does having all the good health certifications guarantee a perfectly healthy puppy that will live out his or her whole life problem free? NO, they just make the odds greater! Have the breeder show you the certifications, or better yet look them up yourself. No reputable breeder will be upset to show you the certifications.
