THIS INFORMATION APPLIES TO HOW WE DO THINGS WHEN WE DO BREED.
As one of our interests is in breeding dogs to compete in the show ring, we are breeding dogs that typify, for us, the standard in conformation, temperament and movement. If we are fortunate there will be one or two show candidates in a litter and of course the rest go to wonderful homes.
We breed dogs with eye, hip, elbow and heart clearances and are happy to provide clearance and contract information in advance. Our preference has been to breed only Goldens who have already achieved their AKC Championships but I now think we need to breed our girls when they are about 2 years of age as it avoids so many reproductive problems, And the good ones will get their Championships after a litter of puppies.
We are located in Southern California and while we are happy to have our dogs living anywhere in the country or Canada in good homes, you do have to come and pick up your puppy. We do not ship puppies.
From time to time older dogs, usually adults, usually belonging to other people, become available to good homes. Because the website is accessed often, we list those dogs here. For information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
WE ARE BREEDING OUR LAST LITTER IN LATE MARCH OR EARLY APRIL 2021
In order to get on to our list, we ask that you complete the short questionnaire here. This gives us a sense of your situation so we know if it looks like we would be a fit. Obviously we need to meet you ahead of time to know for sure if both of us want to have a 12 plus year relationship with one another. Because that is what happens we you get a puppy from us.
If you are on our list for a puppy
If you have children we will need to meet them as well. If you have very young children who have not grown up with a dog, we are probably not your source for a puppy. Puppies have very sharp teeth and toddlers dangle their fingers at just the wrong height. And when the children raise their hands up this translates into ‘please jump on me’ to the puppy. Not a good experience for anyone. Also we remember how much work small children were. And we know how much work a puppy is. We’re not sure there are enough hours in the day to do both.
Puppies are ready to go home between eight and nine weeks. We microchip all puppies before they leave. When we get your deposit, we will send you a link to the Sunbeam Puppy Packet which has more information that you ever want to know. With luck, we can also send you a link to find it on the iBook store so you can have it on your iPad or iPhone.
BUT YOU MAY NOT WANT A SUNBEAM PUPPY. READ ON.
