Looking for a puppy on Oahu!

My husband and I have been searching for weeks for a golden puppy to purchase on this island. So far I've only found one ad though, and the breeder just doesn't seem like someone I want to get a puppy from. Does anyone have any breeder recommendations, or know of any other avenues by which I could search?

I've contacted the akc of Hawaii and unfortunately they had no recommendation, but suggested I go to a dog show and speak to breeders myself, so we are planning to go next month. I was thinking of also calling vets, but I'm not sure if that would be weird? Like do people do that?

You may have to end up finding a breeder in the continental U.S. and have the puppy flown out to Hawaii. Hopefully you can find a good breeder on the island though! Wish I could be of more help. I would definitely attend a dog show - speak to golden breeders there and see if they can recommend anything/anyone.

The problem with having a puppy flown from the continental U.S. is that the state of Hawaii has a very strict quarantine program - almost all dogs entering the state must be quarantined for 120 days.

This is true so not a good idea if one wants a pup.

Oh, I did not know this! I assumed since HI is part of the U.S. they didn't do quarantine. That sucks.

Goldens | Sand Dollar Retrievers

These guys are located in Maui. Mind you, I haven't checked the dogs for all their health clearances so they might not be a reputable kennel, but you could at least look into them. The Golden Retriever Club of Hawaii recommended them on their website.
