Hoping to get some feedback on a breeder in pa. Had a golden for 12years who passed from cancer about 4 yrs ago. LOVED that dog! Finally ready for another and have been researching breeders in our area (Douglassville PA). Met with Judy bruer of copper lee. Am meeting Norma ramer of oakcrest merrygolds. Anyone have any experience with her and her Goldens? Any problems or issues with her puppies yrs later when adults? Any assistance thoughts comments anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Here is a link for the Golden Retriever Club of America-there is a lot of very good information to help you make an informed choice when selecting a breeder.

Golden Retriever Club of America GRCA: The Official AKC National Breed Club

Here is there Puppy Referral link-you can search by State or Region

Several members have gotten puppies from Harborview Goldens, they are located in Erie, PA. The breeder is a member of the forum, very well respected, beautiful pups/dogs.

Here is her website:

Welcome to the Forum!

If you tell us a bit more about what you're looking for in a puppy, you'll get better advice in return. Do you want a family pet and companion? A dog to hunt with you? Do you want to compete in conformation or agility? How energetic would you like your pup to be?

These questions are important because reputable breeders sometimes have different emphases in their breeding programs. "Reputable" generally means that they get all of the recommended health clearances and that they validate the quality of the dogs through some form of competition, as well as adhering to the GRCA code of ethics and generally treating people and animals well. But there is more to finding a breeder and pup that are a good match to you!

Good luck!
