Where did you get your pup?

Just sort of wondering where everybody else got there golden joys from.

My girl, Dixie, was bought from a lady in Carmi, Illinois in reply to a classified ad. She wasn't in the best of health but I bought her anyway. Her mother was a sweetheart, and so were her siblings. We didn't get to meet her brother as he had already been sold.

Later though, I found one of her sisters back in the classifieds by the person who had bought her and her brother at a shelter in a nearby town.

Ben came from Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue in WV a little over a year ago. It was a good decision for all of us.

My current six are all homebreds. The first 3 that I had were from Windjammers. Mandell, and Starseeker.

My (3) boys all came from Ambertru Golden Retrievers in Pembroke, Ontario.

Ambertru Golden Retrievers located in Pembroke, Ontario, Canada.

Not only is Connie the breeder but a good friend too!

Ollie (deceased in 11/2008) was my first golden from Ambertru!

My Roxy was adopted from CFGRR, she had been turned into a high kill shelter and the Rescue Group took her into their program. I adopted Remy from my County Humane Society-love my Rescued pups.

Pippa and Watson both came from SunKissed Goldens, in NH. It's been almost a year since we first met Kara to talk about puppies, and we are so happy that we found her!
