We live on 4 heavily shaded acres about a mile north of Lake Bonham. Our goldens are busy playing outside under the shade of the trees all while being exposed to the cows, donkeys, horses, squirrels, raccoons and opossum.

We began breeding Golden Retrievers back in 2000 when we set out to add a golden retriever to our family. As we began to research and understand about health testing, we found it difficult to locate a quality puppy where we were living and had to travel out of state to find a well bred Golden Retriever. We focused on hunting lines at that time and had opportunity to compete in both field and hunting competitions.
Our puppies were evaluated for therapy and drug dogs. One of our litters was featured in the Domestication’s catalog and another puppy was in the Dillard’s Christmas catalog.
