They can be certified free. Will save you time, money and some heartache. However, rescue pupps are awesome too.

Yes, parents can be certified free of dysplasia but in the end the only way you can be 100% sure that your dog is free of hip dysplasia is to also have the certification done on your own dog as well. However, even parents that are certified may produce a pup that has hip problems but (depending on factors, which is why it does depend on the breeder) in general, should be less likely to produce one.

the problem is my friend breeds them, I can get one from her at a great price, but I am actually considering looking to import one from another breeder. I don't want to hurt her feelings, but I want a dog that is going to be as free and clear of hip problems as possible. I've been thinking about this for along time, and she is asking me if I want in on the next litter and I keep stalling. I know a dog is a dog and I'll fall for it no matter where is comes from, but I want to get the best I can.

Just because the pup is a bargain now, doesn't mean it will be later on. I've heard it many times before, people aren't willing to spend money on a pup because they don't think a pup should cost more than "x price". That doesn't mean you CAN'T get a good dog at a cheap price, you can, but you're stacking the odds more in your favor by going to a breeder that is reliable and does testing. Does your friend do any health checks?
