Michele is right, you dont register your dog with HCA, but owners or breeders are members. I don't see why someone would not register either, its not hard to do.
On another note, if thats all the e-mail said when you inquired about health testing, I would run and run fast. Its ok to say they are too young, it should have been followed with "when they are this age, they will have this and this done and I recommend the following testing in the future. " You should not have to beg for information like this from Breeders. Most I know not only volunteer it, they insist you know what health testing they are doing on puppies and parents. That combined with the lack of AKC, I would not do it.
Its not always important to find a breeder very close to you, but one who is good. Even if you have to drive all day and pick it up. JUST my opinion, I would choose a dog that is AKC and find out all health testing done. In another thread Tom put the link to Beth Johnson who is close to you, you should check her out also.
Only my opinion!
