Has anyone had experience with Northwest Goldens?

Hi again!

I think I've found a reputable breeder, all the way up on the Washington/Oregon border. This is her website: Northwest Goldens - A Reputable Breeder of Golden Retriever Puppies in the Pacific Northwest. It doesn't have much information about the dogs on her website, but I talked with her on the phone and she very enthusiastically confirmed that all the dogs had their health clearances done. She's the vice president (and former president) of the Oregon GRC, so I don't think she would (or could) lie...

She's an incredibly nice lady and she's sent me pictures of the newborns. I told her I wanted to do hospital therapy work and she was very happy to hear it, and said she knew exactly how to pick the perfect pup for me. I'm really hoping this is the right choice to make!

Oh, and more information: She said the sire of the litter was Shooter from Trilogy Goldens Trilogy Goldens, Golden Retrievers, Sherwood, OR

Has anyone had experience with this breeder? Is this a good choice?

I too have already sent my deposit into Judy, but since then she has not returned my calls or emails. I want to confirm the pick up date and time since we have to make airline reservations. Before I sent in the deposit she sent pictures and said she would send more but has not. And when she answered the phone once, hurried me off without even talking to me saying she would call me right back but had to take care of some client boarding immediatly. Will not call or email me back or answer the phone. I'm worried.

How about calling Trilogy goldens, and saying you are excited to have a Shooter pup, and asking if they will evaluate the litter? You might get info you need, and you might get the most therapy-oriented puppy too.

: ) I put my deposit on one of these puppies, and I told Judy I had wanted to do therapy work. She told me she'd pick the perfect one for me!

I also contacted Lori, Shooter's owner. She told me about him and she was really nice to talk to.

Ibby, I also had that problem. I had been trying to contact her for two weeks with no response, but Lori confirmed that she was extremely busy with something (family related) , and today I called her again and she finally called back. She said she was at a dog show in Oregon and she would e-mail me back as soon as she got home.
Are we both getting a shooter/olive puppy? This is so exciting! Where are you from?

Ahh Cool! I'm from North California; we're driving! I'm sooo excited! I'm going to be picking her up probably on the 4th or 5th!

We should totally meet up if we're ever in the same area so our dogs could reunite sometime! : ) I bet it would be adorable.

This is a breeder in our "general" area I have been looking at to call about puppies, please update when you two receive your puppies to let us know how it went.

Ibby, have you heard back from her since three days ago? She said she would send me pictures as soon as she got home, but she hasn't e-mailed me. I'm hesitant to call her again because I've already e-mailed her to ask for an update on the puppies, and I haven't gotten pictures since the ones she sent me when they were newborns. :/ I'm sure that in the end the puppy will make it to me just fine, but I just want to know how they're doing.
