English Golden Puppy Breeders - NC/SC/VA

Do you have any recommendations for breeders for light colored English Golden Retriever puppies for these three states? I reached out to two different breeders in North Carolina I found on the Tarheel GRC, Acadia Goldens and Auragrande Goldens, but neither of them have any puppies currently or coming up in the spring. Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

Try Joanne Cava, she's Tanglewood Goldens.
Of course verify all clearances. She's one of the few breeders of this type in the US who actually does clearances but do verify.

You're going to have to fly to pick up a puppy unless you're willing to wait. You're going to need to be very careful about where you buy a puppy if you don't want to be taken advantage of by an unethical person who is simply a glorified puppy mill. I'll post a link to a thread that will give you a good explanation of why this is true and also a couple leads you could try contacting. http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...eeders-ny.html (Help with English Cream breeders in NY)

If you find a litter, we can help you verify or research the clearances if you come back here with the registered names for the dogs. For instance, you want to make sure that there are multiple generations of elbow clearances behind your puppy. Bad elbows have a significant genetic risk and the surgery to repair this painful condition is a couple thousand dollars per elbow and the recovery time for the dog is a nightmare of complete rest. Not something you want to risk.

X2 on Joanne Cava at Tanglewood. Although her litters are usually fully reserved, you can get on a waiting list. You can also call her - she knows a lot of less-visible breeders.

I saw a light colored (white) Golden while watching Westminster's judging of Golden Retrievers. I saw that the breeder was in NC. It was GoldensGlen. Let me stress that I know absolutely nothing about this breeder. (Maybe there's a thread on here you can search.) I was just surprised when I saw this light colored Golden and decided to make a note of the breeder's name yesterday. Maybe if they're actively showing their dogs they're doing other things right??? I just don't know. But since I was just reading about this breeder and then the next day saw your post about looking for a breeder in NC, I thought I'd toss it out there as a possibility.

I noticed the lighter dog in a video so I just checked out their website. They have a lot of beautiful light colored dogs. I really like the look of Finnegan, whom has his AKC championship. Found on k9data and OFA that he has elbow dysplaysia and yet they're breeding him :/

At least they're honest about it, I suppose.

I have a friend who recently walked away from a puppy (not from the breeder we're talking about) because the dam had elbow dysplasia. It was a tough decision for my friend. She was, understandably, caught up by the cuteness of the pups* and was heavily focused on the dam's excellent hip rating. I'm not a breeder and am well below even the novice level on the topic of breeding but I told her that it seemed to me that the standards wouldn't require an elbow test if a hip test was all that was important. I will credit the breeder she was working with for being open and honest about the elbow results. From the threads I read on here it seems that there are breeders who just won't post anything (or will use a prelim) if the dog fails hips or elbows. If you're going to breed a dog with failed elbows you should at least disclose this fact to potential puppy purchasers so they can make an informed decision.


*I'm probably one of the rare folks not enthralled by puppies. (With one exception, my Goldens came to me as older pups.) I like the look of Goldens at about a year and up. So, when I was watching Westminster's live feed of the Golden Retriever judging, I wanted to fly to New York and take them all home!

Definitely a good reminder that just because someone is competing at higher levels doesn't necessarily mean they're automatically someone you would want a puppy from. ALWAYS perform due diligence.

His ancestors from Sweden have several occurrences of Elbow dysplasia grades 2 and 3 back into the 90's and even the 80's that show up on k9data, so it's not unreasonable to assume he will most likely throw some affected puppies.

Here is the statement regarding elbows on her website, she states she follows the UK practices and standards:
British VeterinaryAssociation/Kennel Club
Elbow Scheme
Elbow dysplasia is a condition that can manifest in a variety of developmental disorders of the elbow leading to osteoarthritis of the elbow joint. The disease has a genetic component which is why breeders look at this. The scores for each elbow range from 0 (clear) to 3 (badly affected). Typically a dog with an elbow score of 1 or 0 are used in breeding programs.
