Welcome

Golden Shepherd Puppies = German Shepherd + Golden Retriever
In-home raised parents, we are located in Central Virginia

Sorry, no litters available in 2020
Our waiting list is full and the inquiry form is closed until late 2021

 

Dec 2020 pickup litter are not available:  ALL TAKEN=APPLICATION IS NOT GOING OUT. During the last litter we had three parents selected as backup for the three pups in this litter. When we contacted them during the Oct 2020 delivery day, they all wanted puppies from this litter. They have rights to them first from waiting about a year or more. We do not have a litter available for xmas 2020 pickup.

The response to puppies from us has been so overwhelming in 2020. In our previous re-homing experience, about 80-90% of parents change their mind by the time the next litter arrives. We apologize for not being prepared to a new 2020 situation where our waiting list is not going down from changed interest. We have closed the inquiry form with no sign of catching up in the next year or two. I am so sorry that we do not have more pups to go to the wonderful homes that have contacted us in 2020.  We refuse to be a puppy mill so we don’t have many litters. Our dogs will be bred carefully as they are our own in home pets and we want them to be healthy. 


Mid Feb 2021 pickup: We will be sending an email out to all previous filled inquiry forms sometime in Nov 2020 to check for continued interest into this litter. We have two parents waiting in line (chosen from previous the spring 2020 litter) that get to choose first from this litter. We expect this litter size to be about 4-6 so the the balance of puppies will go to a selection using the continued interest request and placed in order based on the time stamp from their first initial inquiry form.  The waiting list is currently over 100 confirmed. Those that filled out the inquiry form after March 2020 are very likely not  going to be at the top of that waiting list.  Please have a back up plan!

Around Aug 2021 pickup: We will mention this litter to those on the waiting list from the Dec 2020 check for interest to be on that waiting list. 

We will not be opening the inquiry form again until after the Aug 2021 litter to request the Feb 2022 pickup which we expect to be a very large litter.  Hopefully by this time the waiting list will decrease.

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. Litters picked up between Feb-Sept will have their 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 dad has a Canadian champion bloodline. 


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 24/7 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. We ensure that they have tick protection before going outside in the grass to prevent lyme disease that can cause hip/joint issues later. We have never had fleas in our home.

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.
