Our next litter is expected from Aspen and Adger around 11/26/22.

The Golden Retriever is an active, intelligent and energetic breed. These dogs are eager to please, and can adapt to many different environments. Goldens have a very pleasant personality. The Golden Retriever's coat ranges in color from light to dark gold, with varying shades of red. Their easy-going temperament makes them one of the most popular breeds in America.
Several of our Goldens came from a bloodline started in 1964 with a champion by the name of Top Brass Cotton. Our breeder obtained Goldens from these lines and has been breeding the lines since 1974. Pups from this bloodline have been known to live up to 18 years (we sold a pup in April 2016 to a family whose male pup from these lines lived to be 18, and several others to families whose pups from these lines lived to be 16-17 years).
Ken and I (Angie) Miller have been married since July 4, 1990. We moved to Bessemer City, North Carolina in 2001. As a profession, Ken is a truck driver and I am a Legal Nurse (working from home). We have owned dogs and cats for as long as we have been together. Our first puppy together was a female Golden Retriever and Black Labrador Retriever mix named Cassie. She looked like a black Golden Retriever, and had the best personality and temperament ever.
We have one son, Brock, who is a senior at UNCC in the mechanical engineering program (as of 2019). He is our pride and joy. School and his fiancee', Hannah, keep him very busy. Our retired females Maggie Mae, aka Mags, and Baley live with them in Greer, SC. They have the perfect little family. Mags and Baley are even more spoiled with the kids than when they lived with us, which I never guessed would be possible.
When Cassie passed away at 14 1/4 years old, we decided to get either a Golden or a Black Lab puppy. After researching both breeds, we chose the Golden because they are a little less energetic, but still have a great personality and are eager to please. Our first Golden, Zoe, was on the higher end of the energy spectrum for a Golden. We didn't realize how laid back the breed could be until we got our next Goldens, Baley and Maggie Mae (litter mates). Then Baxter, who came from the same breeder but a different bloodline, showed us just how chill these wonderful dogs can be. The fact that this is the best breed ever has been confirmed with each Golden we have had the pleasure of owning over the years. We will likely never own another breed.
Hobbies: Our Goldens are our main hobby and our passion. We are constantly learning better ways to take care of them. We love have puppies once or twice a year... we get to spoil them rotten for 8 weeks, and then watch them go to their new homes. We also enjoy spending time together as a couple and with friends, riding our Harley Davidson motorcycle in the mountains. It is a great stress reliever.
