Gria & Shine
This is a first time pairing between these two and we expect some really nice puppies. Gria has has one previous litter with us and all the puppies have been outstanding, including the little female we kept back ourselves, Laika. Shine is just beginning his breeding career so we are excited to see what he produces. Gria is lower-medium energy with a very easy going, social temperament. Shine is high energy with a very biddable temperament and great off switch.
This litter will be great for those interested in working, performance, and for active family pets. Shine and Gria are both very athletic, trainable, and have great manners and off switches in the house. We anticipate puppies to be dark golden in color, similar to the red color of both parents, and mature around 55-65 lbs. We make no guarantee on color/size.

Individual Pictures of Puppies and Descriptions.
Below you will find pictures and descriptions of each of the puppies to help the families get to know each of them better. At around 6 weeks of age, we will do an informal temperament test and write up a description below of how each puppy is developing temperament-wise. After this, we will be picking the puppy that we believe best fits your family based on information given on your application as well as during chatting and getting to know each other.
Please keep in mind that these descriptions are how we currently see the puppies developing in regards to personality and color. Color-wise the puppies will likely continue to get lighter as they get their puppy fuzz in. The ear color is said to be a good estimate of their future color. It will take them around 2 years to develop their adult coat and color. As for personality, this is never a guarantee and can develop and change as they grow in their environment! Puppies change a lot both physically and mentally, especially in the first couple months of their lives. While a puppy may be more laid back and quiet now, that could change by the time he/she is 8 weeks old and especially when the puppy goes home with you and is in a brand new environment with new people, new things, and a new schedule and set of rules.
We believe it is very important to keep an open mind and spend lots of time getting to know your own puppy and start socializing when they come to live with you so that you can learn to teach it in a way that they will thrive!
Thankfully all of our puppies are raised here in a positive and interactive setting so we believe that no pick is a "bad" pick! We provide them with a lot of socialization and positive experiences to get them off to the right start, it is up to you to continue that. Your puppy will be introduced to new sounds, places, experiences, kids, other dogs, cats, and other animals around our place. The quality of experiences is more important than the quantity. Meaning for example, your dog may grow up around kids but if those experiences are negative then the dog may not like kids. So making sure the experiences are positive is key!
Goldens naturally make great family dogs and fit in great with an active lifestyle! They are typically easy to train and eager to please their owners. They do need regular exercise and mental stimulation to keep from being bored and developing negative behaviors.
Photos to come when they are born!
