I am hoping to get some help to find a quality breeder in the Southern California area. I live in the Inland Empire, so breeders in Southern California would be convenient, but I would be willing to work with a breeder from California, Nevada, or Arizona.
I'm looking for a male puppy with a darker golden color, not an English Cream color. I would also like to have the puppy to come from lines where the adults grow to about 70 pounds with proper diet and exercise. I'd prefer to not have the dog be bigger than that.
Lastly, I'm hoping to find a puppy as described above that would be available to pick up at the beginning of June 2013 at the earliest.
I know this is a pretty specific idea of what I would want and I appreciate any help!
I highly recommend our breeder who has a litter coming. Her website is www.cantanogoldens.com
Our pup is potty trained. No accidents since the day we brought him home. The daddy is a therapy dog. Our pup is so sweet, loving, calm, so easy to train. He's sleeping by my chair right now. He loves to be brushed. He knows where his brush is and knows where he goes to be brushed (my ottoman). I brush him twice a day for an hour while watching TV. He's not crated or in a pen - that only lasted 2 weeks. He hits the pads and goes outside. (I do have baby gates up for the living room/dining room/family room/stairs.) He's a gem, a gift, and we can't believe how blessed we are that he is so EASY! He actually wants to go find a quiet spot to sleep (loves the garage) and will hit the pads in there too. We were first to pick a male and she helped us with picking and she was so incredible spot on! Her husband knew everything about the pups too. She said he was like his dad, we met his dad, and he is just like his dad. Very laid back and cuddling and loving. And he's beautiful! Light coat just adorable. We can't go anywhere with him without massive attention. And he just loves it all, loves the attention, lets everyone pet him, espeically little kids. He could totally be a therapy dog. He doesn't lick, doesn't bark, just looks up with his snout and let's everyone pet him. He's very special. We took him to an outdoor mall after that horrible shooting and he seemed to lighten everyone up, young kids, teenagers, adults, just all enjoyed petting him. For some reason, he loved the lil toddlers, especially if they were a lil afraid. From what the breeder says, he's just like his dad.
Hope that helped. Don't get me started on talking about my pup...lol..I can't stop LOL
