should I buy a puppy from a litter inwhich two puppies died shortly after birth?

A question for any vets out there - I am considering buying a Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Perth, Western Australia. In this litter, one puppy was stillborn and another puppy died after only a few days (there are 3 puppies surviving). Should I be concerned about possible current and or future health issues in the remaining puppies? eg could this indicate issues with the placenta/ utero environment which could mean the surviving puppies didn't get the healthiest start to life?
