It is our hope as you browse through our Risa's Goldens site that you will get a glimpse of our love for Golden Retrievers!
We started raising Goldens in 1995 when our 6 children were growing up here on our 23 wooded acres near Hillsdale Lake. Our children are now grown but continue to love the wonderful Golden Retriever and have dogs of their own.
Once you've had a Golden, it's hard to be without one! At Risa's Goldens, we continue to have an occasional litter of full English Creme Goldens. We also cross our American females with our English males for an English/American cross that we feel is a "best of both" combination. Our breeding dogs have hip, elbow, cardiac, and eye health clearances as well as top quality champion show bloodlines. Our puppies are fed Life's Abundance, a top-of-the-line holistic, veterinarian-formulated dog food. Puppies are vet checked healthy and vaccinated before going to their new homes. Our puppies are sold as family companions with limited (pet) AKC registration.
Please check with us about our up-coming litters!
Ask to be on our waiting list or reserve your puppy with a deposit! We have a simple "puppy questionnaire" for you to fill out when you are sending a deposit. Our litters sell quickly, so we encourage you to reserve your puppy early!
Our English/American Puppies
have been exceptional!
We expect more puppies like this one
