You guys are all exactly right and if I bred dogs, I would look for all of those things too and in fact, I, like others, think these, or the equivalent, relevant tests for the particular breed, are a necessity rather than optional. HOWEVER. There are unfortunately numerous backyard breeders or people who just want "farm dogs" or some such things, people who think breeder prices are ridiculous (not me) and want a cheap puppy or stud or who just want to breed to make money (when we all know you're lucky to break even if you do it right) , etc. Etc., so unfortunately I think that is the case here, I don't think he really cares and, unfortunately, I think he WILL find someone who will want to use his dog, whether for those reasons or simple lack of knowledge. These are all things reputable breeders would do, which clearly he is not
