Indian Knoll Kennel in IL?

Hi, I just joined the forum because my family and I have recently started getting somewhat serious about getting a golden puppy. Our beloved golden girl Carmella died this summer from what the vet suspected was lymphoma (she was almost 15 though, so she had a good run), and we're just really missing having her around. The house seems so empty!

Anyways, I have all of her information we got from her breeder when she was a pup. Her breeder apparently was Indian Knoll Kennel, which used to be in Flossmoor, IL, but seems to now be located in Monee, IL.

I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with them at all. Do you know of other breeders in IL that you would recommend?

Thank you!

Hi and welcome!! I've never heard of this breeder before. have you actually gone out there to see this kennel? I live in the chicago area and I work in Flossmoor, but never heard of them. maybe go and check them out. you say they moved to monee, maybe they needed more land. I'm sorry I don't know of any breeders around this area. good luck!

The original Indian Knoll was a very well-known kennel back in the 50's or so, but I have not really heard anything from them in at least 15-20 years. This could be a totally different kennel, or it could be relatives of the original Indian Knoll.

There are a number of good breeders in the Illinois area. You could try puppy referral from the GRCa:

Usually if a good breeder does not have puppies available, they can refer you to other breeders who do.

I'm not far from you, I've also heard of Indian Knoll many years ago but haven't heard anything since.
The only thing I would STRONGLY caution you about (and I have no idea if this applies to Indian Knoll or not) is that some breeders in this area breed very high energy field type goldens, while others breed some pretty boneheaded show prospects without a brain in their heads, and yet others breed some real nice pet puppies.
Be sure to find out what the breeder breeds for to be sure that the puppy you are getting is a good match to your lifestyle and your expectations.

um, I just re-read my previous post and I did not mean to imply that all field goldens are hyper or that all show prospects don't have a brain in their heads, only that some of the breeders around here are noted for that....sorry if it came across otherwise.

Hi, I got my first golden Molly from Indian Knolls when they were in Flossmoor.
She was my heart dog, defininately a field golden descended for Topbrass
Cisco Kid. She demanded 4 walks a day plus several tennis ball retrieving sessions a day! She had lympho-plasmitic inflammatory bowel desease and her rectum kept prolapsing and I lost her shortly before her fifth birthday. She was my girl, everything a golden should be smart,loving, beautiful, I still miss her and as I write this, tears come into my eyes. I now have two goldens and considering a third. One place I like is Argo Goldens they are planning a late winter breeding, Mom looks nice and I am hoping dad will be
their dog Harley. Good luck with your search.
Chris

Ljilly - have you gotten a pup from Tahnee? I was just about to ask who she was when I noticed she posted right above you?

Tess/Chris - I know exactly how you feel. Carmella was my best friend, and just the thought of her brings tears to my eyes - talking about her, writing about her, thinking about her... it's tough.

I'm sorry you had to lose your girl so early. I count myself very lucky to have had the fortune of spending 14+ years with my golden. Sounds like our dogs were very similar, though. Up until about the last 2 weeks before she passed, Carmella still loved walking, running, playing with her toys, and just being her mischievous self.

I have seen Argo mentioned before - I think I will check them out. It's good to hear you've gotten other goldens! I originally considered never getting another dog again after I lost Carmella, but enough people convinced me that the nicest thing to do in her memory would be to open my heart and home again to another dog.

Shor'line Goldens is where Diva's dad lives. Mariner is absolutely beautiful and Cynthia Binder is awesome.
