Hi,

I've lurked on these forums for a while reading up on goldens and I've finally decided to get one of my own. I'm looking for a companion puppy (I'm neither a shower, competitor, or breeder) to join my family. I currently have one dog that I have raised since puppyhood and is now 3 years old.

I'd like to get a puppy sometime between now and next summer. I live in New Hampshire, so I would prefer a breeder somewhere in the New England area. I've seen tons of posts with people asking if others on this forum have heard of a breeder they found. I figured I'd do it the other way. Since people here seem to know a lot about the breed and are pretty careful about making sure their breeders are responsible and have all their documents, I was wondering if anyone had a referral for me. I'd like this breeder to be as close to the New Hampshire/Vermont area as possible, though the New York/Boston area is fine too. Obviously the breeder needs to be very responsible and breed healthy dogs. Like I said, I don't need a working dog or show dog, I just need good companion.

If anyone knows any good breeders, please let me know. Especially if you know of a great breeder who is planning on having a litter sometime soon, I would really like to know about it to so I could get in touch with them.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your quick responses. The Sunkissed Goldens website is down right now, which is too bad since that breeder comes so strongly recommended. I believe the breeder is a member of this forum, so I hope the website is back up and running sometime soon.

Any other recommendations? Also, I'm very, very open to taking an older dog, especially since I know so many great dogs are in need of forever homes. Are there any particularly good rescue organizations in the Northeast that I should check out?

I met a Thornelea Kool Hand Luke puppy Saturday- Mia. She is gorgeous, no doubt about it.
