Did your golden come from a breeder or rescue that is on GRF?

Since it seems like several of us have recently added another golden to our family who is from a breeder and/or rescue that is on this forum, I thought I would take a quick inventory and ask who came from where. I always like to learn more about the golden connections on GRF!

If your answer is yes, please share your connections with the group! :)

I answered yes because our new boy, Ace, is from the wonderful, amazing, super Doolin3077 (Mac). The stud dog owner is also a forum member - Everlore. I would happily buy another puppy from Mac, and there are several other breeders around here I really admire and respect. If I were planning to rescue, Mary and Jill at Dirk's Fund would be my first choice!

My Flirt is from Doolin, too, although I did not get her as a puppy.

100% Housebroken is the way to go for me.

Although the pups ARE cute..........

Maggie is from a breeder(not on the forum) Cruiser, Houdini and Abbie came from Dirks fund. Abbie(who has some Big named east coast blood in her background) was from a hobby breeder, who sold her to someone who couldnt keep her due to her husband having allergies, when they contacted her(breeder) she has some terrible family and health issues that she thought Dirks fund could find a better home then she could.

Sam was from a breeder not on the forum. Dillon was a rescue found by Jenna (AquaClaraCanines) in Florida, then transported to me cross country by members of this forum. :)

MacKenzie was fostered by Mary (Maggies Mom) from Dirk's Fund. With the help of references from this forum and Mary, I was able to have her.

Brady is from a breeder not on this forum, but there have been half siblings of his on this forum.

Tucker's breeder signed up for the forum but don't think she ever posted.

I forget her username now... but I know there's a couple of Tomiskaway dogs on here.

Both of our boys are from the same breeder. I have told her about this forum and she said she would check it out, but I have no idea if she has signed up.

I couldn't decide how to vote so I didn't. I got Oakly from a breeder who is not associated with this forum and I got Caue directly from a gentleman who joined the forum to get ideas on how to rehome his golden. Though I have to thank the forum members that vouched for me and help to drive Caue from Connecticut to Maine.

Our Dusty is from Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue in WV and Sammy was adopted from the Prince George's County, MD animal shelter. As much as it would be fun to have a puppy we are committed to only adopting from a rescue or shelter, there are just too many adult dogs needing a good home. Our two little terriers were rescues as well.

Molson's breeder is not on the forum, but there are so many fabulous breeders on here that I will have a very hard decision narrowing it down to which one of them our next dogs will come from!
