    Hi! I relocated in June of 2020 to Kentucky, I am about 45 minutes to an hour away from Louisville, KY. I am looking for a good place to get my boy OFA Tested for Hips, Elbows, Patellas, Eyes, and Heart. He will be turning 2 years old July 15. I know I need to wait until he is 2 to get official...
  2. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    I'm in search of my first Golden and am looking for some advice on narrowing down a few breeders I have identified.

  9. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    We are a family of five (5) looking for a new puppy. We are having a tough time finding a very good breeder that offers OFA certs for Heart, Hip, Elbows and Eyes. Every place we look seems to be a dead-end. Hopefully some on here will put us in direct contact we a breeder. We live in Long...
