I've been lurking for a bit today until it told me to register! I need help! I've never had a Golden Retriever before and I'm dying to adopt a puppy soon. I have no idea where to even begin and I would appreciate any help. Does anyone know of any good breeders in the Pacific Northwest area. I live in Seattle and am willing to travel to Oregon if need be. This will also be my first puppy, and I am so excited! Now a little about me: My name is Jessica, I'm 26 years old, and I'm very active. I love to go bike riding and running, and hope to get a running partner out of my Golden one day! Thanks for reading, and I appreciate any help you all have to offer!

Welcome to the GRF Jessica. While I would never recommend a specific breeder, typically it is a good idea to contact your local golden retriever club. Many of them have a puppy referal service. Good luck finding a running partner.

Welcome to the forum. There are many members here from your area and I'm sure you'll hear from them soon. For now, if you click on miscellaneous at the very top, there is a puppy buyers link which should give you some good reading. Good luck in your search ..... we'll be anxiously waiting for some pictures.

Go to Craigslist!! - - there's a "rescued golden" 1-2 y/o female in Spanaway (Tacoma area) that sounds so wonderful. I think she had been dumped/left at the vet.

Evergreen Golden Retriever, I think, is the Seattle group. Are you set on a pup or would you go older?

Good luck in your search for a new puppy. Like everyone said check the misc at the top of the page. It has GREAT info on selecting a breeder but dont discount a rescue dog because you could have your new running partner in a short time instead of waiting for almost 2 yrs. Rescues can match a dog to you for your lifestyle and they are already POTTY trained. LOL
Good luck again and welcome.
