Retriever puppy only from a reputable breeder who, as a minimum, can
provide copies of hip, elbow, eye, and cardiac health clearances for
both sire and dam of the litter. The article and links on this site
should provide you with information about those clearances. AGRC
encourages puppy buyers to thoroughly evaluate health and
temperament of any puppies offered for sale.
listing litters with AGRC Puppy Referral have provided us with a
copy of hip, elbow, eye, and heart clearances on both the sire and
dam of their litters. The breeder should give you a copy of
these clearance certificates on both the sire and dam as well.
These referrals are provided as information only. AGRC is unable to
do site inspections of breeders receiving referrals from the Club.

are encouraged to take as much time as necessary to locate a
reputable breeder from whom they feel comfortable purchasing a
puppy, and to investigate breeders and their puppies thoroughly
before committing to a purchase. You are not obligated to purchase a
puppy from the above referrals.
