I expect others can help you more with regard to registration, breeding, health testing etc. But you should consider whether the owner a registered breeder? Does she show? Have the parents been health-tested & has she got the paperwork to demonstrate this? Was this a deliberate mating with prior research on the correct dog for her bitch or a was it a chance coupling because she "forgot" to get her bitrch spayed?
I agree with the "fishiness" of the price reduction & would be very wary. You could be letting yourself in for lots of heartbreak, let alone expense, if the puppy has any health problems.
As far as behaviour is concerned, it's quite difficult to be specific as to what to look for with a young pup of 14 weeks old. Apart from the fact that dogs can be very much a product of their upbringing, & puppies develop at different rates, you should be looking for normal exploratory play type behaviour. Also see what the mum's like ~ if she's a calm, relaxed & friendly type dog, then there's a greater chance that her puppies will have benefitted from the time spent with her.
I would suggest that you write down all the questions you have before
you go ~ just in case you forget anything & also because it's too easy to fall for a cute pup & then all sensible thoughts go out the window
Good luck with whatever you decide.
