  2. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hi all. Quick litter size question. I understand an average litter size for a golden is around 8 ish puppies, but is dependent on many factors. If a dogs first litter was 11 puppies, can I assume her next litter will be on the larger size? Love to hear any stories.

    My mom and I go to meet Mabel for the first time in about a week. Since we are allowed to choose our puppy as opposed to the breeder picking for us, we don't yet know which puppy in the litter is Mabel.
