As noted before: do ask for the heart certs in advance -- ask if the breeder does heart clearances etc and then ask to see them for the parents. These are standard questions and should be step one before you even consider taking any puppy from any breeder. That way you at least know you are starting on the best health footing regarding hearts that you can.
