Newbie from Massachusetts

I am a new member of the forum. Had my beloved Max for 10 years and he passed away last year. My husband and I are thinking we're ready to get a puppy in the near future. I'm hoping to get some advice on reputable breeders in the MA/NH area.

Welcome to the forum!

Hi there,

I could recommend a very nice bookstore in Massachusetts but I don't know any breeders there!

Welcome to the forum though. Hope somebody will see this post and give you some useful information!

Welcome! Your Max was a handsome fellow. He reminds me a little of our Zeke who we lost about 5 years ago. I believe there are a number of good breeders in MA & NH and many GRF members there. As you may know, the Yankee Golden Retriever Club, ( is headquartered in MA and I'm sure they must have a puppy referral person.

Breeders in MA

We got our now 8 month old pup last June from Tangleloft Goldens in Brimfield, MA. I can't say enough about him. His is so sweet and smart(not to mention cute) and we just adore him. We had lost our 91/2 month old Golden last February and we was a great dog as well. He was a Twin Beau D dog from Swansea, MA. I would recommend both breeders. Good luck
