There is no such thing as a 'Miniature Golden' ~ so any marketing to that affect by the breeder is simply that ~ a way to sell puppies. You are right, it is simply a mixed breed puppy. Nothing wrong with a mixed breed, but I am against people marketing something that does not exist ~ and/or asking big money for them.

At the end of the day, you have every right to buy whatever puppy breed or mix you feel is right for you.

I live at a dog training center in Maine on 11 acres, but I have lived in a tiny prep school apartment and a house in urban New Haven CT with goldens. As long as they get daily off leash hikes, ours are wonderful wherever their people are.

I don't know if anyone has heard/read this - Goldens are well suited for apartment living.
from dogbreedinfo.com
Dogs Good for Apartment Life

This is a list of breeds that are considered "good" for apartment life. If you do not see a breed listed here, it does not mean that it cannot live in an apartment. This list only covers the breeds considered "best" for apartment life. Do not assume that just because a dog is small that it will get enough exercise running around your home. Your home is like a large cage. If you have a yard, it’s a larger cage. The key to keeping any dog in an apartment is providing enough exercise. Dogs are canine animals that have retained the instinct to migrate. Therefore, even small dogs need to be taken out for daily walks. High-energy dogs can live in an apartment if the owner takes them out for long walks, bike rides or jogs. Enough daily exercise is the key to keeping any dog stable and happy. Be sure it is the right type of exercise, an exercise that drains both the dog’s physical and mental energy. Only providing excited exercise (i.e. playing with other dogs or tossing a ball) does not drain the dog’s mental energy. Find out more—read The Proper Way to Walk a Dog.

Interesting information - Golden's are on the list for suited for apartment living. I live near a park and walk my GR daily and go open leash over the weekend.
Since puppy got here - we are leash walking and staying away from the off-leash park until Bailey is older.

Personally, I think goldens can live anywhere as long as they're inside with their person. If you live an apartment without a yard, you'll have to make the effort to take your dog out to get exercise. Molly never spends a single day cooped up inside. She goes to the park and gets to run, romp, and swim every day. She has a great life.

I live in a house on about an acre. Most of that acre is in creek or steep hillside, so it isn't as plush as it might seem. Very private though, which I appreciate.

I read once about a golden in Italy that would come down the elevator of a hotel every morning and go out for his walk, by himself. At the time, I thought typical golden!

We live in a suburb outside of Ottawa. A house, with no fenced back yard. Lots of parks and walking trails around

We live in a house now with a fenced backyard. However for the first 18 months of Chloe's life we lived in a highrise condo. I think Chloe preferred the condo - she was like a celebrity there lol. My dad use to joke that as long as he had Chloe anyone would let him into the building since they all adored her. Chloe had a ton of people in the condo complex that loved her, she loved seeing people and playing with the dogs. Even though we live in a house and have a backyard, we have the same exercise routine, an hour walk in the morning and evening, a play session and training session.

Now, Ranger and I are in a house with a massive fenced backyard. He has full run of the house.

For the first 2 years I had him, we lived in a tiny, under-500sf basement suite. He was fine. I walked him early in the morning before work for 45 minutes, 20 min at lunch, and then another hour in the evening. When he was inside, he just slept or hung out.

He has more energy in the house because I don't walk him as much anymore. No time and I've fallen into the dual trap of "he's older and doesn't need as much exercise" and "we play in the backyard". Neither is a replacement for two good walks a day!
