    Hello everyone,

    I find myself in a delicate situation and would greatly appreciate your advice. A dear friend of mine is set on getting a Goldendoodle, and while I’m hesitant about designer breeds, I want to preserve our friendship above all else. I have some concerns about a specific breeder she’s considering, and I’m hoping to find acceptable alternatives for her in the Southeast, preferably within a 6-hour drive of Atlanta, GA.

    The breeder in question raises over 17 liters a year, which raises red flags for me. Additionally, I’ve noticed some questionable discrepancies with their OFA listings not matching the registry. Moreover, they release puppies at just 7 weeks old, which I’ve learned isn’t ideal for proper socialization.

    Ideally, I’d love to steer my friend towards an active, wavy/curly-coated retriever that is a recognized AKC breed. If anyone knows of reputable breeders in the Southeast that genuinely prioritize health testing, early socialization, and ethical practices, I’d be incredibly grateful for your recommendations.

    My friend has been set on a Goldendoodle for nearly a decade, and while I have reservations, I want to be supportive and help her find the best possible option. I truly believe in the importance of responsible breeding and providing loving homes to well-cared-for puppies.

    Thank you for understanding my situation, and I’m looking forward to any advice or recommendations you can offer.
