Gold-rush goldens and cancer

Do not buy a gold-rush golden! My golden girl died at age 8 of cancer of the spleen. I did research and found that every one of her littermates, along with all the littermates of her "uncle" died of cancer at age 8!

Goldengrove kennels in vineland, nj seems to have longevity.
Goldiggers in tinton falls, nj
jansun goldens in howell, nj
goldenway goldens in marlboro, nj

I don't get it Gold Rush Golden's are the best looking dogs period, but they have a very high rate of cancer and have been since the 1990's.

So if you don't do your homework blame yourself. There is not a month that goes by on all Golden forums that doesn't address this.

Gold Rush = Cancer

Yes, I have investigated also and this seems to be true. Add to the list of seemingly reputable Golden breeders, Pennylane in Manalapan, NJ. Their history seems to indicate longevity and caring about the health of the breed.

(I was thrilled to find out that Griff had some of the Kyon dogs in his background.)
I saw its been a while since you wrote. but could you please tell me where you got jake from and if you have had experience or knowledge of other golden retrievers who lived a long time and which breeders you got them from?

Everyone from then on has been a rescue, but if I was ever to buy a puppy from a breeder, I would go back to them.
ITs been a while but can you tell me if you have had any other goldens that lived long and from whom did you get them?
