We are thrilled to announce this planned breeding and thank Janice Gunn for the opportunity to breed Carmen to "the Great One". Stanley is a true legend in the Golden Retriever breed and his accomplishments and temperament were simply outstanding. For more information on Stanley please make sure to visit his webpageA once in a lifetime achiever!
Our goal for this breeding is to produce intelligent versatile retrievers that are structurally sound, athletic, biddable and wonderful family hunting companions that could compete in many performance venues including field, obedience, agility, etc...! Both Stanley and Carmen have a lot to offer, they are very focussed, biddable, lots of drive to retieve, strong marking dogs, strong water dogs, strong work ethic, fun loving personalities and solid Golden temperaments. Paired together, these should be some fun puppies for experienced homes, we are very excited! The puppy pedigree has a low inbreeding coefficient and is a wonderful blend of field, performance and conformation Goldens.
Carmen is a very fun to run, athletic, strong hunting retriever measuring just shy of 21" at the withers and weighing 60 pounds. She lives to retrieve and her speed and marking is fun to watch. More information on Carmen can be found on her page on this website.
