I emailed about that and all the dogs have passed echo dopplered, Thyroid, Vision, & OFA Hips & Elbows. She is willing to show me the results on each one also.
Definitely ask for the results, and while you're at it ask why none of her dogs are listed in the OFA database. Normal results are automatically listed, so the only way she could have chosen to not have them listed (other than not actually have done them) is if they were abnormal.

Also ask about holtering -- she mentions she's had long talks with her cardiologist and he says annual holtering is required, yet there's no mention that any of her dogs have been holtered (and it's not in the list she sent you).

Personally, I'd keep looking. Too many questionable things going on, here. (And if you're in the mood, you could mention that she's wrong about the OFA -- it is a not-for-profit organization that funds millions of dollars of research into genetic health conditions in dogs.)
