We are very excited to have the opportunity to breed Brew to Willie - these are going to be fun puppies!
Our goal for this breeding is to produce intelligent hunting companions that are athletic, biddable, can be easily trained in any venue, and become a wonderful family member. Both Willie and Brew have dynamic personalities and they love to work but they also easily settle in the house. The puppy pedigree has a low inbreeding coefficient and is a wonderful blend of field, performance and conformation Goldens.
I have known Willie since a puppy and have watched him grow into a stunning, moderate, athletic retriever with a wonderful Golden temperament. He loves every person and gets along with all dogs, can run and play with other intact males and very very tolerant and playful with young puppies. Thankfully he has never lost his endeering goofy playful side that always made me laugh. He always gives very good effort, tries to please and can handle some very tough retrieves in heavy cover and big water. You just can't help but love Willie.
