I'm seriously bothered by the number of people who take such a stern, automatically negative, stance to anyone talking about "English Creme" goldens. The primary reaction is "well they better not say rare english creme". It's an adjective, not a sales point or predefined breeding practice. Yes, some people do describe their goldens as English Creme, because that best fits their overall appearance, it's a color! Other people call their Goldens "RED", but i've yet to hear anyone complain about this classification??? There are definitely people who use this terminology to their financial benefit, but that aside, it is just a color characteristic/description, right? People also freak out when Goldens are described as being "champagne" or "platinum"...again, just colors. There's nothing inherent about these adjectives that suggest "rare...get em while they last!"
It was the description, "English Creme/Platnim Blond", that drew me to my goldens...because that's what they are.
It seems like you can say light, dark, white, red, copper, or anything else to describe your golden, but as soon as you as english creme or platinum you're obviously identifying yourself as someone who has been scammed or is about to be scammed.
I hate these non stop disputes on here about english vs american goldens, but I think this is the only time I've actually weighed in. If it's a responsible breeder and a buyer who's done their homework then no need to cause a huge ruckus over it!
I know nothing about the specific breeder mentioned in the OP, but don't let all the critics steer you away just because they're "English Creme".
