The dogs in our breeding program have had hips, elbows, eyes and heart exams, and genetic testing prior to being cleared for breeding. Each of our goldens lives as part of a family, we are not a kennel based program. Goldens, like most dog breeds, thrive on relationships and company, they don’t like to spend time alone for long periods.
Piper– Piper is our beautiful girl who came to us from YoungCountry Golden Retrievers. We’ve been honoured to have been trusted with receiving her full registration, which means we have breeding rights to carry on her temperament, bone structure and pigmentation for many generations of GSGR pups to come. Piper has a clear genetic panel and her link to OFA clearances is here: Advanced Search | Orthopedic Foundation for Animals | Columbia, MO (ofa.org)
Chloe – This pretty girl made her debut in the puppy show ring, and continues to turn heads with her gorgeous looks! Even as she grew to an adult, she has kept that teddy bear look. Chloe is highly motivated to work for rewards that include attention and play and loves to interact with people of all ages. She is extremely tolerant of any type of interaction with other dogs and loves to play with the puppies. We welcomed Chloe’s 1st litter of pups early in 2020 and look forward to watching them grow and meeting her new litters in the future. Some of Chloe’s pups are in training for service roles such as autism support and PTSD. Chloe has a clear genetic panel and you will find her complete info here: Advanced Search | Orthopedic Foundation for Animals | Columbia, MO (ofa.org)
Peach – Peach is our girl from Bravo and Gracie’s very 1st litter. She is a Therapy Dog and is trained with The Phoenix Canine Initiative. She and her handler provide visits to First Responders in facilities such as OPP, Paramedics, Fire Stations, 911 dispatch, and CAS. She’s a lovely combination of both her parents, in both looks and temperament. We look forward to welcoming her 1st litter of pups this fall. Peach’s current info can be found here: Advanced Search | Orthopedic Foundation for Animals | Columbia, MO (ofa.org)
Indie – Our pretty little girl, Indie is from Bella and Bravo’s litter of pups. She has a sweet, calm temperament and the petite features that her mom has, but her dad’s full coat. A very happy girl who is eager to play and socialize. She’s also a regular donor to the Canadian Animal Blood Bank.
Indie’s genetic panel is clear and her info to date can be found here: Advanced Search | Orthopedic Foundation for Animals | Columbia, MO (ofa.org)
Our 1st daughter of Chloe & Bravo, Elsa has developed into a replica of her mom. With medium golden coat and her love of attention (and socks), it’s easy to remember who’s daughter she really is. She’s a beautiful girl with her dad’s large head feet. We look foward to Elsa’s very first litter of pups in 2022. Her final clearances aren’t all complete yet, due to her age but here is what we have so far, with hips and elbows scheduled right after she turns 2 in February 2022. https://www.ofa.org/advanced-search?f=sr&appnum=2273645
Bravo – our big beautiful boy and Canadian Conformation Champion! Bravo loves being around people and his friendly disposition makes him a very popular member of our clan. He is being trained with The Phoenix Canine Initiative to become a Therapy Dog for First Responders. Don’t let his big feet and blocky head fool you though, he’s 100% teddy bear as far as his personality goes. Bravo is a fast learner and is driven to please. Some of his recent pups are being trained in psychiatric service, CNIB, PTSD, hearing assistance and autism support. Here is Bravo’s info: Bravo’s genetic panel is clear and his OFA clearances are complete and can be found here: Advanced Search | Orthopedic Foundation for Animals | Columbia, MO (ofa.org)
Fletch is our Bravo and Gracie’s son. He is a darker red than both his parents, and has the large bone structure, broad head and big feet like his stunning father does. His registered name is “GSR A Boy’s Best Friend” and he spends his days living up to his name. We look forward to Fletch being a stud for our breeding program for the first time in fall of 2021. Fletch has a clear genetic panel and his OFA clearances to date are here: Advanced Search | Orthopedic Foundation for Animals | Columbia, MO (ofa.org)
