Golden Shepherd Puppies from a AKC German Shepherd mom and an AKC Golden Retriever dad.
We are located in Central Virginia.
No litters available
Waiting list is full for Xmas 2020 pickup
Next delivery is around late April 2021
Pickup is around late June 2021
We will be sending an application out in late Oct/early Nov (after a healthy delivery) to those that filled out the inquiry form below. Please look for that form to fill it out immediately. A “head’s up” email will go out to inquiries on the delivery day in late October 2020.
Owners will be selected from the Oct application form after a family group vote. Vote approved applicants will be placed in order based on their initial time stamped inquiry form with their color/sex selection. COVID has uniquely made the inquiries over 5:1 for a puppy (in a typical litter size) right now. Selected applicants will be contacted in order to make the litter selection to pass on the balance to the next in line. Those that inquired after July may not make the selection process since our inquiries started in Jan 2020. Requests will carry over to the next year’s litter as chosen on the form. Anyone changing their mind during the first few weeks will reopen the selection process to the next selected applicant in line. This process avoids us having to do a bidding war with a focus on finding a quality forever home for these special babies.
Puppy includes: vaccine/de-worming records from a licensed Vet exam at 6 weeks old. We also provide a small collar or harness, a leash, about 2 weeks of dog food for weaning, microchipping and the first dose of nexgard (flea/tick) lasting for 2-3 weeks after pickup.
These dogs are mixed and not recognized by AKC but both parents have AKC registrations with absolutely no health issues of any kind.
The Golden Shepherd puppy re-homing fee reflects the time given for quality care. Rehoming is $1,250-1,500 based on litter sex/color size.
These puppies are attentively raised with constant love inside our home to trust their owner(s). These puppies are for those that are looking for a loving pet without fear and mental issues. They are good family dogs for those with young children. The will shed but regular grooming can reduce shedding.
Mother is fed quality dog food with nutrients when pregnant=we want to make sure our puppies are healthy from the start by feeding the pregnant mom quality nutritious dog food and high protein in fresh meats. We also give the mother daily Omega-3 to offer a healthy brain and retina development in the womb.
Puppies are fed openly quality large breed dog food with probiotics=this promotes a dog that does not hoard food or eat too quickly because they know food is always around. Puppies double in size each week so we only use large breed puppy food to ensure quality bone/joint growth development. Probiotics offers a healthy gut to decrease auto immune issues. They nurse until the day you pick them up to feel loved and have a healthy gut.
Puppies are raised inside our home daily and free to roam our large property=since we hope our puppies will be your forever pet we want to prepare them to live in your home. We avoid them growing up sitting in their own waste so that they will learn to feel uncomfortable using the bathroom indoors to potty train quicker. They will get use to the sounds of a home and human interaction to understand how to live indoors comfortably without fear. By roaming our property freely they build healthy muscles/joints, begin to explore the outdoors and learn to trust coming to the voice of a human calling them home. We also keep a crate in the house tied open 24/7 to build trust/comfort with being inside a crate.
Puppies are raised with both parents around them 24/7=our puppies parents are great examples on how to live indoors. By having their parent around they build a naive trust with the world to become happy loving dogs. The parents can teach them skills and discipline for in-home living. They teach them social skills, sharing, nipping instead of biting, respect for hierarchy, confidence from constant love/protection and so much more.
