Double B Goldens in Colorado

Anyone have any recent info about this breeder? I am looking for a cream color golden but must have great health and temperment. Reading about all the health issues of goldens is a bit scary. Any info about this breeder or any other in Colorado would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't seen the website but you generally want to stay away from any breeder advertising the colour of their dogs. If they use the term cream that's generally a bad sign.

Check out your local golden club for a referral.

Good luck!

Just had a look at their homepage - definitely skip them.

RUN!
They are associated with White Dove, Whitedove...they openly advertise platinum, cream, white and red.
The sentence on their homepage "All dogs have passed American Kennel Club (AKC) health clearances..." shows their ignorance...

They have 14 breeding females...and coincidentally the best stud dogs for them happen to live under the same roof!

They don't do anything with their dogs other then breed them....
I didn't see even one CGC on their breeding animals. Granted on so many dogs I did not look at EVERY page. They tout ACK when it is convenient for them....but somehow cant get even a BASIC AKC certificate?

They are not members of the local or national breed clubs...

You might try Timberee Goldens owned by Sandy McFarland. I know that she has incorporated some English-type dogs into her breeding program.

Timberee would be a great option if you are interested in English style in Colorado. There are a couple of other reputable people in the area as well, Wingwatcher, which is Claire Caro and Jan Owen. Kathy Bourland (Starz) is another who has English lines in her breeding and has some lovely dogs. And one last to check out is Timberbash/Kingsgold which is Angela Berkheimer McLean and Bruce McLean. I think all of these folks are actively involved with the MileHi GRC.

I know of them and they used to be a ok breeder. Now I wouldn't touch their stuff with a 10 foot pole.

Not so sure they were ever ok.

My Rustie came from there ~7-8 years ago.

After picking her out from the litter we were given a tour of the place.

She actually bragged on her new kennels that made it so much easier since they had wire floors.

At that time I knew nothing of puppy mills and so forth but I was disturbed.

I went through and kept Rustie because I would not go back on a puppy that I had committed to.

Rusties passing ( at 6 years old ) and a desire to find a better breed of breeder is what lead me to these forums a 1 1/2 years ago.

Do not walk... run... from this breeder.

Now that I got that out of my system I can maybe be helpful.

1 1/2 years ago my wife and I did research on buying a light colored Golden in colorado. Pixie was the result:



Just recently a co-worker was looking to get a Golden after 5 years of the passing their last one.

I compiled all my research including what I learned here into a 3 page word document I can send you if you want it. ( you can't PM me... you don't have enough posts so you'll have to let me know on this thread)

Some of it is personal opinion which I wouldn't want posted publicly.

As for breeders posted here... I don't remember if Timberee is on my list but our notes had Starz as being a breeder to contact next time we were looking for a Golden.
