Golden Creek Kennels - NC

Hi,

I'm new to this forum..this is my first posting, so please bear with me.

My fiance and I are looking to get a golden retriever puppy this summer and I was wondering if anyone had any information on the Golden Creek Kennels in North Carolina?

I noticed that they're not really mentioned in the forums (good or bad). My fiance and I were out biking last week and ran into a couple who had bought from them, and their dog was nice and calm.

I contacted the local clubs here who gave me lists of local breeders, however they did not comment either way on them.

I checked out their website, but could not find health information about the sire/dam (i haven't emailed them to ask either, to be fair).

If anyone has information it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Just what I like to hear. As a breeder, I figure anyone who grills me has done their homework.

Why not try the Golden Retriever Club of America puppy referral? They have people in different areas of the country who can refer you to reputable breeders.

Just to add a note about Golden Creek Kennels... RUN AWAY!! One of my neighbors is fostering a dog until she is ready to be bred. He told me she was going to be bred in the spring of '09. I asked how old she was and he responded she just turned 1...

GAAACCCKKKK! I loathe "foster" programs like this - HVB/puppy millers who simply want more reproductive organs available to them without having to care for the dogs (hence larger profits) really make my skin crawl. It's also used as a tactic by some so that they are not in violation of the number of dogs that they are allowed to have.

Hahaha

I agree 100 percent they piss me off when they want dogs "fostered"
