Thanks and help?

I just stumbled across this site and am so thankful. I just lost my 15 year old "blonde" retriever. I had been looking for another breeder as the one I used before doesn't anticipate any more litters. I found MN English Goldens and was struck with how much they looked like my dog. But also felt pressure to send a deposit and even to get a puppy before my dog passed away. I've read this thread and am wondering if anyone has any english golden breeders to recommend? Thanks!

I wasn't necessarily looking for an English Golden, or even a lighter one. As an inexperienced puppy buyer, I stumbled across that website. I doubt very much that I would have purchased a puppy from her, but the responses I got from the knowledgeable people on this forum made certain that I steered clear.

Did you ask if you could visit?

Did she tell you about he $20,000 stud dog that she purchased from Europe?

Did she ramble on and on about the vets from all over the country that refer their clients to her?

Did she tell you that people have told her that she should be charging $3000 for her puppies?

To the handful of people that I scrapped with on that breeder thread the other day. I was only trying to help out the new member, but I see your point more clearly now. No hard feelings, I hope.

Nairb-

I do appreciate your red flags there. It confirmed my feelings after communicating via email with them there. I never actually spoke with her, but felt lots of pressure to commit to litters that "sell out" and the benefits of having a puppy around a dying dog. That just didn't ring true to me. The dogs look sweet, but there were lots of unanswered questions that I feel are pretty important. I'm currently looking at options including Cedar, that you used, and Kyon in Canada.

That sounds like a creepy thing for them to be saying in an email.

I don't know anything about Kyon. I still keep in touch with Mary from Cedar, and think very highly of them. Their dogs aren't 100% "English Goldens," but a mixture of both, I think. They are a little lighter in color than most, if that's what you're looking for. They seem to have had decent success in the show ring. Also, Tom is a judge.

I would encourage you to visit, and read all the available information on English Goldens in North America - Litters - Breeders - Stud Dogs it is a small community of reputable breeders of English Style (but, there are many reputable breeders out there that are not listed on this website). This should be a good starting point in your search.

Best of luck!!
Cheers
Rob

That site is how I got in touch with Cedar, but as I said, their dogs are not 100% English. It looks like their bloodlines need to to have "pedigrees that reflect at least 50% post-1950 Golden Retrievers imported from the UK, Europe, Australia, and/or New Zealand, or their fresh or frozen semen."

If I wouldn't have found this forum, I never would have known about Cedar.

The sire of your puppy is also the sire of Bella's sire, Eddie. I guess that would make your puppy Bella's uncle or aunt. LOL. Are you getting a male or female?

Once again....to the members who I had a disagreement with over perceived rough treatment of a new member on another thread....I was wrong. The breeder threads are valuable resources to those looking for a puppy - even if it means harsh words are needed to make a point. Moreover, they are searchable, and will continue to educate prospective puppy buyers for a long time.

I apologize.
