January 13, 2013 Pani and Pride gave us a litter of 4 males and 2 females. Puppies should be ready for new homes March 10, 2013. Sire and dam are medium gold field goldens with lots of drive and desire to please. Deposits have been place on all puppies in this litter. Thanks to each family that is providing a loving, forever home to these little goldens.
We at Rock& Rill are hobby breeders producing one or two litter a year. Our dual purpose AKC golden retrievers are above all else the best imaginable companion dogs. It is our goal to preserve talent, instinct, temperament and trainability that make golden retrievers unique and to avoid specialization that characterizes some breed lines of goldens. We outcross using conformation and field lines to preserve a traditional golden and minimize health or temperament problems. We OFA, eye CERF and know of no organic or auto-immune diseases in the dogs we breed.
Golden retrievers have been a part of our family since 1989. Our goldens are family members. They move in and out of our home and enjoy freedom on our 360 acres of riverfront farmland. Puppies are born and raised in our house. When ready for placement they are well socialized, beginning to retrieve instinctively and are paper trained.
