All puppies in this litter are spoken for, our next litter will be the fall of 2023. In 40 years of breeding this has been one of the easiest and fun litters to raise. I did not think I would love a breed as much as my goldens but these guys (Russell terriers) are right up there.

I am sad to say that I am no longer breeding Golden Retrievers.
I love the breed and have been grateful for everyone I have met over the 40 years with regards to puppy owners. I have to be honest and say I am not happy where the breed is going. I have heard a breeder and also a breeder that is a veterinarian say that they would rather have a pretty winning dog live for 7 years than a ordinary dog live for 12 years. They are all beautiful but please as responsible breeders aim for longevity and health, make this your priority.
Everyone needs to work towards betterment of this breed, in fact all breeds with regards to improving on health issues and longevity, 8 to 9 years is way too young for this wonderful breed to be dying, most of it with cancer. No matter what a breeder tells you all lines have cancer and hereditary issues it is what the breeder chooses to do with the knowledge of their pedigrees when choosing a breeding that makes the difference. I see so many breeders that are breeding for the show ring and going to the dogs that have had a big win in the show ring no matter the issues that might be in the pedigree of some of those dogs that are not a good match for their dog. Rather than concentrating on health and longevity. Just because a dog is registered with CKC and being shown does not mean all clearances have been done.
Cherish this wonderful breed, the golden retriever. Before buying do your homework on the parents, both the sire and the dam before making the decision that this is the right breeder and puppy for you. Don’t make a rush decision as this will be a hopefully long healthy relationship with a new family member. Remember if there is something you are questioning find out the answers or wait for another litter or breeder.
