Puppies are sometimes available to approved families. All breeding stock hold clear Eye & Heart Certificates and have had Hip/Elbows x rayed.

My puppies are lovingly raised in my home, with plenty of love and attention. Puppies are Vet - checked, vaccinated & microchipped before being placed with their new families.

In placing puppies I look for families who have carefully considered the decision to add a Golden retriever puppy to their family and for those who are prepared for the responsibilities that go along with this decision.

A securely fenced yard and a lifestyle where you have time to spend with your puppy are an absolute must. If you are interested in adding a Golden puppy to your family, I will be happy to help you make an educated decision about whether this is the right breed for you.

A Golden Puppy

I'll lend to you for a little while,
A golden pup, God said,
For you to love her while she lives,
And mourn for when she's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years
For only two or three,
But will you, 'till I call her back,
Take care of her for me?

She'll bring her charm to gladden you,
And should her stay be brief,
You'll always have her memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay,
since all from death return,
But there are lessons taught below
I want this pup to learn

I've looked the whole world over,
In search of teachers true,
And from all the folks that crowd life's land
I have chosen you.
Now will you give her all your love
Nor think the labour vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take
My Golden back again.

I fancied that I hear you say
Dear Lord thy will be done,
For all the joys this pup will bring
The risk of grief I'll run.
I'll shelter her with tenderness
I'll love her while I may,
And for the happiness I've known
Forever grateful stay.

But should you come to call her back
much sooner than I planned,
I'll face the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.
If by my love I've managed
Your wishes to achieve,
In memory of her I loved, to help me when I grieve.

When my faithful friend departs
This great big world of strife,
I'll have another Golden pup
And love her all my life.
