Welcome to Ardorgold, and Happy Holidays! Puppies still available from our stellar litter whelped on November 5, 2018. Many thanks to the families placing deposits. firstname.lastname@example.org; text to 970-214-1883. Enjoy our photos and updates, and note endorsements further down on the page.
The cream coat is both allowable in the UK Standard and genetically dominant in Europe and beyond, even to the extent that a deep Gold English Golden can produce cream progeny. We ourselves love the look of the cream-coated English Golden. Equally stunning are the puppies in a given litter that one might fairly call “sun-kissed” or “dusky cream.” But they are stunning because they have gorgeous heads and are masterfully put together; they are true dreamboats. See our discussion of English “breed type” below.
What is an English Golden, if It’s Not About Coat Color?
Our puppies’ pedigree constitutes a “line-breeding” on the magnificent Int’l Ch Ashbury Angel Heart. We feel that he is a truly fabulous example of all one strives for in a good breeding program.
Here is what we in America consider a gloriously beautiful English Golden. Note this stunning dog’s proportions and substance. Note how each part is congruent to other parts–stunning head, strong but not overly long neck; prominent and muscular chest, legs set well beneath the body; how the head and neck give way to a stunning level topline to tail. Look at the difference between this dog and the American champion below:
We are retired teachers with a decades-long passion for the Golden Retriever, most recently for the English Golden Retriever; for thirty years we have bred champions in conformation, agility and the field, gorgeous healthy puppies for families; service dogs for autistic little boys and a woman dying of breast cancer.
These days, late in our lives, we are blessed beyond measure with the privilege of living in our country home with seven intelligent and spectacular “English” Golden Retrievers.

A true English Golden is a masterpiece of proportion and substance. He may or may not have a cream coat because as noted, the cream coat is allowed abroad; we again refer you to and ask you to scroll down to “coat color” in the United Kingdom Kennel Club Breed Standard or blueprint for the Golden. It is the official word and it says this: the Golden Retriever’s coat “may be any shade of cream or gold except for red or mahogany.”

Please take a minute to read about our sheer grit in true Western form, in raising these beautiful dogs….photos of babies throughout post.
We are retired teachers with a passion for the Golden Retriever, most recently for the English Golden Retriever; we have bred champions in conformation, agility and the field, gorgeous healthy puppies for families; service dogs for autistic little boys and a woman dying of breast cancer.
These days, late in our lives, we are blessed beyond measure with the privilege of living in our country home with seven intelligent and spectacular “English” Golden Retrievers.
We are blessed with their love, their energy, their devotion, their astounding beauty. As we are in “retirement,” they have given us a reason to keep on as we age and become less able to live in the larger world. One of us spends much of her time writing and working in a wheel chair after a bad fall from a horse; her dogs connect her to life and will help her face impending surgery after our puppies go home by giving her a reason to fight to get well. She delivered her litter in leg braces, with a separated shoulder and got every one of the babies born, dry and nursing.
In our love for them and how much they love us, we have not been able to endure kenneling them out of doors, where all Goldens pine away for their humans, living for the least word, the least touch.
With their love and beauty they have brought much of the indoors in, so that we have needed to adapt to a little chaos, clutter, and dust sometimes impossible to keep up with. Each of our dogs has a den indoors with us and is rotated through spacious fenced yards outside each door; each is nurtured, played with and loved.
What is love worth? Is it worth letting go of order, predictability, arrangements of cherished inanimate objects, so that ardor–intense passion– rules the day?
Claro que si, certo, oui, yes. No question.
On November 5, 2018, more love and beauty came into our lives in the form of seven spectacular puppies who crawled out of their sacs and locked on to their beautiful mother, and to whom we went on duty, suspending everything else.
Our litter was planned and we think we have puppies bred with so much love and expertise that they surpass everyone else’s.
We didn’t just put any two cream-coated imported dogs together and make stuff up about the breed; we carefully chose our first boy, our foundation bitch, keeping two of their stunning daughters, then choosing again a second boy of the quality and pedigree necessary to breed to those beauty queens, and bringing in a second beautiful girl.
We understand that this is something ambitious to undertake. Life has taken big bites out of our hearts and our pocketbooks since this began. Two c-sections and a euthanasia. Joy and tears, more joy and more tears.
Passion for something drives a person to transcend his limitations, like doing six loads of laundry a day to keep our whelping box clean and dry when we are asleep on our feet. Both of us monitor each baby and each adult for everything he or she could want or need no matter whether we have eaten or slept or not.
Right now, raising the most beautiful puppies we’ve ever seen, these little motes of love that kiss us and cuddle into our arms, little else matters or gets done. We are constantly cooking our weaning stew, letting Mama into the whelping box less and less, watching our gorgeous little polar babies figure out life. We cuddle them and wash their faces, clip their nails and pick up the poop the minute it falls.
We think that our babies are the best puppies available to anyone looking for a puppy raised with the unbeatable combination of love and expertise– and passion, and depth of knowledge. Because so many people have gone into business providing Americans with snowy-coated Goldens, even people who do this without the kind of devotion or knowledge being entrusted with the best bloodlines in the world requires, it’s a tough market.
It’s confusing, especially when people are unfamiliar with the fact that what sets the English Golden apart from the American is construction/conformation, not coat color. See the United Kennel Club Breed Standard for the Golden Retriever here; scroll down to the official description of an English Golden’s coat color. Please note that Golden Retrievers are all one breed and tht a. the breed standard says that the English coat may be “any shade of cream or gold except red or mahogany.” b. That two light dogs can produce darker puppies and two light, gold-dusted dogs, a litter of creams and “dusky creams.”

Puppies ready after first two vaccinations, worming, vet check; our protocol requires that you reserve a puppy and visit us on the day the puppy is ready to transition into your home. This is the choice of many breeders to insure the health of their puppies. Where is is feasible we match our puppies to what our clients want; we release puppies and allow people to pick in the order that deposits are received. Our site is meant to be a virtual tour of Ardorgold and our clients generally trust us enough to make a deposit after we speak and answer their questions.

Welcome to Ardorgold English Golden Retrievers. We proudly announce our litter by our stunning Jr. Ch Gabrielle Ola de Oro for Ardorgold out of Ardorgold Celestial Mystique, parents and puppies pictured below. We will update as our puppies mature. email@example.com; 970-214-1883. Puppies of both sexes still available as of this date; many thanks to the families placing deposits. Puppies are $2500 with a $200 deposit and will be ready between Christmas and New Year’s. Litter pedigree posted at k9data is here.
Our puppies photographed yesterday in natural light and during bedding change….
This is a truly elegant breeding producing gorgeous puppies with stunning heads; in our view, you will not find other English Golden Retriever breeders in the US with the depth of knowledge and decades of experience required to not only select the most outstanding individuals from abroad to import, but how and why to combine given bloodlines to produce superlative puppies in accordance with the UK Breed Standard, the blueprint endorsed by the UK’s most elite breeder-judges setting forth the qualities of the ideal Golden…
As noted, Ardorgold is committed to producing puppies that conform to the United Kingdom “Breed Standard” for the Golden Retriever.We have imported dogs that are outstanding specimens of the English Golden and we know how to capitalize on these lines. Scroll down in the Standard and you will see, despite the misconceptions prevailing online, that the English Golden may be “any shade of cream or gold except red or mahogany.” Because cream-coated Goldens are dominant in our pedigree, our puppies are cream and shaded or “dusky” cream.
This litter is linebred, far different than inbreeding, on the beautiful Int’l CH Ashbury Angel Heart, the immensely influential Irish kennel Garbank Lislone, on the great Int’l CH and World Winner Robinhood of Glen Shellag and the beautiful Eng Sh CH Paudell Passion. This means that in our mission to promote and produce puppies of English type, you will find the named bloodlines behind both our sire and dam.Linebreeding has been done many times over in our breed to promote “breed type”–to produce progeny close to the ideal in construction, temperament and soundness.
See the endorsement below the slide show of our stunning babies.

Boy 3 – two weeks
Puppy E – three weeks

“The Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital wishes to commend you on the quality of the English Import sired-puppies you brought to us for evaluation. We have never seen puppies of such exquisite breed type as your Golden Retrievers.” James L. Voss, D.V.M., Hospital Director.”
The Classic English Golden Retriever – our Jr. Ch. Angels Dance in Beauly Highland for Ardorgold aka Angelo
We have not seen other discussions of English “breed type” on people’s websites; please indulge us. Our Jr. Ch. Angelo, our puppies’ grandsire, is pictured as a puppy above at roughly the 7 weeks in which it is believed that an English Golden shows some of its adult features. Note Angelo’s beautiful “domey” head in which his ears are set level with his eyes; note that his muzzle or “foreface” is the same length as the distance from where it meets the head to the occipital ridge or crest of the head. Note the length of his neck and how the neck flows to a level topline extending to the tip of the tail. From this side view we see that Angelo’s shoulder blades are set back and triangulated so that his breastbone is prominent and his front legs are set well beneath his body.
Note that Angelo’s “rear assembly” is very “correct” in that he is “well let down in the hocks”, with definition and perpendicularity. The total puppy is meant to be proportional so that a rectangle may be drawn around him.
Many people now know of Angelo’s existence and tell us how beautiful he is; we agree! He was a classically beautiful English Golden Retriever puppy and for us, a magnificent adult:
Our puppies’ dam is the beautiful Ardorgold Celestial Mystique, aka Paris; she is pictured below with our gorgeous litter of cream and shaded cream babies. The sequence before Paris is of our beautiful sire “Gabe”–
Gabe is a loving, charismatic and very “typey” dog; we could not be happier with our two boys. Whereas Angelo is by Angel Heart out of a Garbank-bred bitch, Gabe is the grandson of Angel Heart’s most renowned and beautiful son, Int’l CH Big Boss of the Famous Family. Gabe is also the great-grandson of Int’ CH Lislone Garbank Jackpot. This gives you an idea of how we have replicated these bloodlines in the fourth and fifth generations of our pedigree. Meanwhile the great Robinhood of Glen Sheallag is Angelo’s great grandsire and Gabe’s great-great grandsire through his dam. Again, line-breeding promotes “breed type,” i.e., the extent to which a given dog or bitch approaches the ideal set forth in the UK breed standard.
Paris with her whelps of several days….
Golden Retrievers are one breed, developed in Scotland late in the 19th Century. Within the breed are types of Goldens with diverging characteristics arising from variations in how a given region or country conceptualizes the Golden. The UK, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, India, Ukraine, Russia et al all have their own “official” written list of the attributes of the ideal Golden Retriever. In the U.S., AKC judges find the light coat “undesirable”. In the United Kingdom and indeed, throughout Europe, the cream coat is dominant; in the U.S. that is reversed. Two cream-coated dogs may produce light Gold puppies and vice versa.
We urge you to read two things: The UK Breed Standard for the Golden Retriever linked above, and The Golden Retriever Club of America’s position on “English Creams.” Ardorgold also curates the Facebook brook “Respected International Breeders and Fanciers of the English Golden Retriever” and we are two thousand strong i.e. 2k members including hundreds of prominent, highly accomplished international breeders who would never select breeding stock for coat color, as it narrows the gene pool, thereby setting up original exquisite genetic packages with all attributes of the ideal Golden for hereditary issues. A review of our discussions in our group would be valuable to those of you who want a beautiful specimen of the English Golden as a family member.
We ourselves understand the appeal of the cream-coated Golden Retriever which is allowable and even dominant in some regions of Europe, but frowned upon in the U.S. We ourselves have cream-coated breeding stock.
Put more simply, Ardorgold breeds for those characteristics defining the English Golden beyond coat color such as proper construction, temperament and soundness. The English Golden may be “any shade of cream or gold except red or mahogany” per the UK Standard.
That said, you see for yourselves that our litter is first and foremost, the progeny of dogs chosen for “breed type,” meaning how close to the ideal as set forth by the UK Standard, they come. Look at the beautiful heads and plush coats of our puppies.
We are thrilled with so many things about these puppies–but especially, these glorious heads! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for reservation information. Many thanks to those who have reserved puppies from our litter thus far.
We are with our dogs and puppies 24-7, getting little sleep, utterly devoted to the welfare of each puppy.
Again, what we Americans call “English” in breed type is all about proportion, balance, beautiful broad heads, graceful necks giving way to strong chests and the neck flowing to level topline in a line culminating in the tip of the tail. The shoulder blades of the English dog are prominent so that the legs are set well beneath its body; when such a dog “moves out” in the ring the stride is symmetrical and the movement, breathtaking.
This magnificent dog has a spectacular and “typey” head, excellent length of neck, muscular chest of great depth; his neck and withers flow to a level “top-line, which extends to the tip of his tail; he is beautifully proportional and balanced with his substantial legs set well beneath his body.
Here is our “baby-mama” Ardorgold Celestial Mystique, daughter of Angelo, with her stunning litter– info on the sire of these fabulous puppies below:
Look again at the sheer beauty of our puppies, their exquisite heads and creamy, thick coats. This is quality you will only find at Ardorgold; only Ardorgold has the knowledge and expertise to have the worthy goal of contributing to the breed by preserving and capitalizing on select bloodlines.

THERE IS A REASON THAT ARDORGOLD IS COLORADO’S LEADING BREEDER OF ENGLISH GOLDEN RETRIEVERS. WE ARE WIDELY RESPECTED, WITH HIGH GOOGLE RANKING AND MANY KUDOS BECAUSE OF THE QUALITY OF WHAT WE PRODUCE.
WE BREED ENGLISH GOLDEN RETRIEVERS OF OUTSTANDING SUBSTANCE FROM THE BEST BLOODLINES IN THE WORLD. ARDORGOLD IMPORTS BREEDING STOCK THAT IMPROVES OUR BREEDING PROGRAM.

AGAIN: WE IMPORT BREEDING STOCK OF GOLD-PLAITED “CONSTRUCTION” IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE UK KENNEL CLUB BREED STANDARD. A BREED STANDARD IS A WRITTEN EXPERT BLUEPRINT FOR THE IDEAL GOLDEN. WHILE GOLDEN RETRIEVERS ARE ONE BREED, GOLDENS VARY AROUND THE WORLD BECAUSE STYLISTIC PREFERENCES FLUCTUATE AND ARE WRITTEN INTO A GIVEN REGION OR COUNTRY’S TASTES.
BRIEFLY: OUR PUPPIES MAY BE RESERVED VIA E-MAIL TO firstname.lastname@example.org. WE WILL ACCEPT THREE $100 PER SEX.; WE WILL TAKE THREE DEPOSITS PER SEX FOR EACH LITTER.

WE DO NOT SHIP, YOU MAY LOCATE A COURIER VIA USHIP OR ARRANGE TO PICK UP YOUR PUPPY IN NORTHERN COLORADO.
OF GREAT SIGNIFICANCE TO ARDORGOLD, BEARING ON THE CONSUMMATE QUALITY OF OUR LITTER AND WE HOPE THE APPEAL OF OUR PUPPIES TO YOU, ARE THE FOLLOWING THINGS; AT LEAST FOUR WORLD WINNERS IN THE FIRST FOUR GENERATIONS OF OUR PEDIGREE; THE PEDIGREE IS AN INTENTIONAL LINE-BREEDING ON ASHBURY, GARBANK LISLONE, GLEN SHEALLAG, AND BY EXTENSION AS HE IS THE SIRE OF ANGEL HEART, THE GREAT INT’L CH TARAM DU BOIS DE LA RAYERE AND THE EQUALLY STUNNING INT’L CH PAUDELL PASSION, SIRE OF ANGEL HEART’S DAM AND OF THE GREAT ROBINHOOD OF GLEN SHEALLAG.
OF ESPECIAL INTEREST TO YOU THE CONSUMER SHOULD BE WHETHER OUR PUPPIES LIVE UP TO THEIR PEDIGREE. WE CAN TELL YOU THE FOLLOWING:WE ARE SEEING WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE IN SUCH A LITTER WITH PEDIGREES LIKE OURS; PUPPIES OF PROPORTION, BALANCE: LARGE HEADS, STRONG NECKS, LEVEL BACKS, STRONG PROMINENT BREAST BONE/FORECHESTS.
WE CAN ALSO ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT THERE ARE FIVE GENERATIONS OF GENETIC HEALTH BEHIND GABE AND PARIS.
CHOOSING BREEDING STOCK
THE KNOWLEDGEABLE REPLICATION OF A GIVEN BLOODLINE, IN OUR CASE DOUBLING UP ON ASHBURY, GARBANK AND GLEN SHEALLAG IS “LINEBREEDING,” AS OPPOSED TO “INBREEDING.” LINEBREEDING PERPETUATES BREED TYPE; READ MORE AS YOU SCROLL DOWN.
ABOUT GENETIC TESTING
REGARDING TESTING FOR HERITABLE CONDITIONS, ARDORGOLD FEELS STRONGLY THAT BREEDING MUST BALANCE THE BEAUTY, LINEAGE, HISTORY OF SOUNDNESS IN THE PEDIGREE AND STATURE OF BREEDING STOCK AGAINST A TREND TO TEST AGGRESSIVELY, BASING THE VALUE OF A DOG ONLY ON AN ABSENCE OF GIVEN TRAITS AND CONDITIONS. THE VERY LAST REASON TO BREED IS FOR COAT COLOR OR SHADE!!!! WE DISCUSS THESE THINGS EXTENSIVELY THROUGHOUT THE SITE. WE LINK OUR PEDIGREES AND TESTING WITH THE NEW CHIEN D’OR ANGLAIS INTERNATIONALE.
HERE ARE SEVERAL MORE PHOTOS OF OUR GORGEOUS SEVEN BABIES BY JR CH GABRIELLE OLO DE ORO FOR ARDORGOLD AKA GABE, HIP, EYE, HEART CLEAR , OUT OF ARDORGOLD CELESTIAL MYSTIQUE AKA PARIS,HIP, EYE, HEART CLEAR BY OUR IMPORTED JR CH ANGELS DANCE IN BEAULY HIGHLAND AKA ANGELO, OUT OF GILDED PEAK SCRUMPTIOUS MUNCHKIN. PLEASE NOTE THAT INDOOR PHOTOS DO DARKEN CREAM GOLDENS BY SEVERAL SHADES; THE BEST BENCHMARK ARE THE PUPPY SHOTS.
WE ARE RETIRED TEACHERS WITH THIRTY YEARS’ EXPERIENCE PROVIDING HIGHEST QUALITY PUPPIES TO ACTIVE FAMILIES AND OTHERS WHO LOVE THE GOLDEN, HEART AND SOUL. WE HAVE IMPORTED THE MOST WELL PUT TOGETHER, FULLY HEALTH SCREENED AND CH-PACKED PEDIGREED BLOODSTOCK IN THE WORLD. SCROLL DOWN FOR ALL RELEVANT INFO. SEE OUR BEAUTIFUL STUD DOGS BELOW.
WE DO NOT PERMIT RANDOM VISITATION IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE HEALTH OF OUR PUPPIES AND ADULTS. OUR SITE IS MEANT TO BE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF ALL THINGS ARDORGOLD. YOUR DEPOSIT HOLDS A PUPPY; IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH OUR PUPPIES AS POSTED AT VARIOUS GROWTH STAGES, WE WILL NOT HESITATE TO REFUND YOUR DEPOSIT.FOR QUALITY I.E. STRONG PEDIGREES TOP AND BOTTOM, PROVEN GOOD TEMPERAMENT AND A HISTORY OF SOUNDNESS.
THOSE PROMOTING ENGLISH CREAMS OFTEN KNOW LITTLE OF BREED HISTORY OR OF THE FACT THAT THE IDEAL GOLDEN ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC, (VARYING ONLY BECAUSE DIFFERENT COUNTRIES OR REGIONS DIFFER IN THEIR BREED STANDARD OR IDEA OF WHAT THE IDEAL GOLDEN LOOKS LIKE), IS PROPERLY CONSTRUCTED WITH A LOVING AND FRIENDLY TEMPERAMENT AND THAT HE IS FROM HISTORICALLY SOUND LINES EASILY VERIFIED AT K9DATA.COM.
PICTURED BELOW IS ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY PRIZED “ENGLISH” GOLDENS OF ALL TIME— BEST VETERAN CRUFTS 2018, WORLD CHAMPION MILANO 2015 AMSTERDAM BOB 2014 TRAMIN ARNI JOY, BY INT’L CH ROBINHOOD OF GLEN SHEALLAG EX INT’L CH REAL WORLD OF GLEN SHEALLAG, BRED BY LENA USHAN, TRAMIN, UKRAINE. THIS DOG PERFECTLY ILLUSTRATES OUR PRECEDING DESCRIPTION; HE IS THE GRANDFATHER OF OUR ANGELO AND THEREFORE IN OUR CURRENT LITTER. SEE THE OVERLAID IMAGE BELOW THAT ARTFULLY HIGHLIGHTS THE DIFFERENCES IN BODY TYPE OR CONSTRUCTION THAT DIFFERENTIATE THE ANGLO-EUROPEAN GOLDEN. SCROLL PAST THAT INFO FOR OUR PUPPY INFO.
ANOTHER POINT WE WISH TO MAKE IS THAT A PEDIGREE MATTERS. WE HAVE PURPOSEFULLY CHOSEN PEDIGREES PACKED WITH THE MOST NOTABLE BLOODLINES AND FINEST INDIVIDUALS IN THE WORLD. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR GABE AND YOU WILL SEE THAT HE IS A TRUE ARISTOCRAT–SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE FACT THAT HE IS THE GRANDSON OF INTERNATIONAL CH BIG BOSS OF THE FAMOUS FAMILY, HIS BEAUTIFUL SIRE OUT OF A MOONDUST MASTERPIECE DAUGHTER. GABE’S DAM IS THE CH-SIRED GRAND-DAUGHTER OF THE GREAT RUSSIAN INT’L CH TODES SOKOLINOGO GNEZDA WHO IS IN TURN THE PROGENY OF INT’L CH ROYAL SALUTE DU PAYS DE BOHEME.
GABE’S DAM IS LINE-BRED ON THE GREAT IN’T’ CH ROBINHOOD OF GLEN SHEALLAG, WHO IS ALSO THE SIRE OF THE 2018 CRUFTS VETERAN TRAMIN ARNI JOY,GRANDSIRE TO ANGELO, WHO IS SIRE OF OUR PARIS, DAM OF OUR LITTER. PARIS’ DAM WAS BRED BY ARDORGOLD WITH ONE AMERICAN STRAND STRAIGHT GOLD-RUSH, ONE OF THE TOP KENNELS IN THE U.S. PARIS’S GRAND-DAM IS A ROMANIAN IMPORT WHOSE BACKGROUND IS THE KARVIN KENNELS OF FINLAND.
IMPORTANT! THE CAREFUL REPLICATION OF BLOODLINES IN A PEDIGREE IS CALLED LINE-BREEDING, VERY DIFFERENT THAN INBREEDING. TRUE BREEDERS DEVOTED TO THEIR BREED HAVE A RATIONALE FOR A PAIRING; IN OUR CASE WE KNOW THAT OUR PUPPIES WILL BE LINEBRED ON ASHBURY ANGEL HEART, THE STUNNING DOGS OF LISLONE GARBANK OF IRELAND, AND ROBINHOOD OF GLEN SHEALLAG– WITH OTHER REPLICATIONS THAT ONLY SERVE TO STRENGTHEN A PEDIGREE.
WE HOPE YOU WILL BE MOTIVATED BY WHAT YOU SEE HERE TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRUE FANCIER LIKE ARDORGOLD, AND SOMEONE WHO IS PUTTING TWO CREAM-COATED IMPORTED DOGS TOGETHER WITHOUT A CLUE AS TO THEIR BLOODLINES OR HOW THEY SHOULD LOOK. A GOOD BREEDER KNOWS WHAT SHE HAS AND CAN TELL YOU ABOUT THE PEDIGREE; WE ARE THRILLED WITH THE ONE WE HOPE TO SEE IN THE OFFSPRING OF OUR BEAUTIFUL GABE AND PARIS, BOTH PICTURED IN SLIDE SHOWS AS PUPPIES AND ADULTS.

IF ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY, WE WILL TAKE THE PUPPY BACK TO ASSIST YOU BUT WE WANT YOU TO STAND BY HIM SO THAT YOU, WHO WILL HAVE BONDED WITH HIM, WILL KNOW WHAT BECOMES OF HIM; THIS IS PART OF RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERSHIP.

ULTIMATELY A GIVEN DOG IS OF GREAT VALUE IN ITS CONFORMANCE TO THE UK BREED STANDARD AND ITS PEDIGREE, I.E., ITS POWERFUL, IMAGINATIVE LINEAGE AND AGAIN, THAT IT IS “TRUE TO BREED TYPE.” ANY DOG WE IMPORT MUST ALSO MANIFEST A BIDDABLE AND LOVING TEMPERAMENT AND FREEDOM FROM KNOWN HEREDITARY DEFECTS. IN OUR MISSION AS PRESERVATION BREEDERS COMMITTED TO BRINGING CERTAIN BLOODLINES INTO THE US, ARDORGOLD HAS IMPORTED FOUR DOGS FROM EUROPE–TWO STUD PUPPIES AND TWO BITCHES, ALL OF WHOM HAVE SUPER STARS AS THEIR SIRES AND DAMS. ADDITIONALLY, OUR DOGS HAVE A STRONG HISTORY OF GOOD HIPS, EYES AND HEARTS. SEE GENETIC HEALTH INFO HERE AS WELL AS ON INDIVIDUAL DOGS’ PAGES.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT WE DO NOT POST AT OFFA.ORG AS PRESSURED TO DO BY GRCA (GOLDEN RETRIEVER CLUB OF AMERICA, AN ARM OF AKC); WE BELIEVE THAT A CENTRALIZED SITE FOR GENETIC TESTING ENCOURAGES POLICING OF BREEDERS; WE POST OUR HEALTH INFO TO THIS BLOG AND ON K9DATA.COM . IN SELLING A PUPPY TO YOU OUR GOAL IS TO ESTABLISH A TRUSTING RELATIONSHIP, ONE IN WHICH YOU ACQUIRE CONFIDENCE IN OUR EXPERTISE AND IN OUR PROTOCOL.
REGARDING GUARANTEEING AGAINST GENETIC DEFECTS, PLEASE AGAIN UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING: ALL HEREDITARY TRAITS ARE POLYGENIC, MEANING EXPRESSED BY MULTIPLE GENES IN COMPLEX PATTERNS OF OCCURENCE AND DORMANCY, I.E. IN DOMINANT OR RECESSIVE STATES. FOR THIS REASON IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GUARANTEE THAT TESTED PARENTS WILL NOT PRODUCE DEFECT-FREE OFFSPRING. TESTING IMPROVES ODDS ONLY. EVEN SO, WE DO TEST FOR THE MOST CONCERNING DEFECTS–HIPS, EYES, AND HEART, WITH APPROPRIATE SPECIALISTS, TO BETTER THOSE ODDS, AS NOTED, WE POST TESTING RESULTS ON THE BLOG AND ON K9DATA.COM
DNA PANELS FOR A NUMBER OF RARE OR MILD HEREDITARY ISSUES ARE AVAILABLE AND CERTAINLY ANY BUYER MAY HAVE HIS PUPPY TESTED, BUT AT THIS TIME WE DO NOT DNA-TEST PUPPIES WE SELL OURSELVES. WE HAVE NO KNOWN INSTANCES IN OUR BLOODLINE OF CANINE ICHTHYOSIS, A LOW-INCIDENCE SKIN CONDITION OFTEN DESCRIBED AS PUPPY DANDRUFF.
THERE IS IN FACT A NAIVE FRENZY ABOUT THIS CONDITION AMONG NOVICE BREEDERS IN THE U.S. IT CAN BE MANAGED WITH VARIOUS SKIN CARE REGIMENS JUST AS HUMANS MANAGE THEIR OWN SKIN ISSUES. AGAIN, WERE WE TO HAVE ICTHTHYOSIS MANIFEST IN ANY OF OUR DOGS, OUR APPROACH WOULD BE TO BREED IT OUT RATHER THAN ELIMINATE AN OTHERWISE STUNNING SPECIMEN OF THE BREED. TO BREED ONLY CLEARED DOGS OR CREAM-COATED DOGS NARROWS THE GENE POOL AND IS NOT CONSIDERED BEST PRACTICE.
THE UK BREED STANDARD AND THE AMERICAN STANDARD DIFFER NOT ONLY IN ALLOWABLE COAT COLORS BUT IN SETTING FORTH IDEAL CONFORMATION. THE EXISTENCE OF COMPETING STANDARDS GIVES RISE TO AT LEAST TWO PREDOMINANT TYPES OF GOLDEN RETRIEVER; WHAT AN AMERICAN MIGHT CALL “TYPEY” IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE AMERICAN STANDARD MAY DIFFER SUBSTANTIVELY FROM WHAT A BREEDER WORKING WITH THE UK STANDARD MIGHT CALL THE SAME THING. THESE ARE SOME OF THE FINER POINTS OF BREEDING THAT MAY OR MAY NOT INTEREST YOU. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF A BEAUTIFUL “ENGLISH” GOLDEN THAT DOES NOT CONFORM TO THE MISTAKEN NOTION THAT ENGLISH GOLDENS ARE ALWAYS CREAM.
THE FORMER ORGANIZATION HAS BEEN CHARTERED FOR THOSE IMPORTING QUALITY GOLDENS WHO SEEK AN INTERIM RECORD AND AFFIDAVIT OF IMPORTATION AND LINEAGE, AND WHO AGREE NOT TO SELL ANY OFFSPRING FOR BREEDING. AT THIS TIME WE SELL OUR PUPPIES WITH COPIES OF THE SIRE AND DAM’S EXPORT PEDIGREES, A COPY OF THE K9DATA PEDIGREE, AND A CERTIFICATE OF LINEAGE FROM THE AFOREMENTIONED SOURCE. YOU MAY SPECIAL REGISTER WITH AKC IF YOU WISH TO COMPETE IN OBEDIENCE OR AGILITY WITH YOUR ARDORGOLD PUPPY. WE DO NOT SELL ANY BREEDING STOCK.

Again, we appreciate your interest in our forthcoming litter and will place you on our list in the order of expressed interest for either sex, up to a total of four per sex. This is Malibu’s first litter– we want to be sure we have babies up and running. Naturally we will post puppy photos. Do e-mail us with your questions– thanks for stopping by!
My husband and I are retired teachers and writers, with a long history as fanciers and family-oriented breeders of show-quality AKC Golden Retrievers. We first called ourselves Gilded Peak Golden Retrievers– see relevant page. Several years ago, we became entranced with the British in type Golden Retriever, which is often cream-coated in Europe and still rare in the US, despite the many breeders of these glorious dogs there are now throughout North America. You may know these dogs to be characterized as “English Creams.” This is descriptive terminology for only one type of the Golden Retriever breed, founded in Scotland during the Edwardian era by one Lord Tweedmouth at his estate “Guisachen”. Please also see the fascinating story of English-Background Goldens in North America.
Here is our knock-out imported male Angelo aka Angels Dance in Beauly Highland, sired by Int’l CH Ashbury Angel Heart. bred and titled by Cathy Sontag of Ashbury Kennels, France, out of Multi CH Lislone Garbank Loch Affric, bred by Mr. and Mrs. James Crosbie, renowned fanciers of Ireland, whose UK breed type and wonderful biddable temperament, together with one of the top five pedigrees in the lower forty-eight, make him exemplary.
Pictured below is our beautiful brood bitch, the stunning Amore Veritas Malibu. Her magnificent sire Int’l CH Majik Inspector Clouseau is a champion in ten countries. Her exquisite dam, CH Amore Veritas Antalia, is a daughter of Multi CH Thevenet Pep’s Team, a CH Remington Ringmaster son. Malibu is an absolutely splendid, “doggy” bitch; she has excellent conformation and is loving and biddable. See Malibu’s pedigree on k9data here. See Malibu’s page for more photos and discussion.
We thus have to date one spectacular breeding pair of cream-coated English Goldens, and one young female by our Irish Import Angelo out of a beautiful American-bred 3/4 English Golden, from our original bloodlines.
Our three English Cream Golden Retrievers live with us in the house and have spacious runs out each door of our home outside Fort Collins, Colorado. They are members of our family, nurtured, trained, groomed and generally adored by us twenty-four seven. We recommend that in the event you do not buy one of our puppies, you research Colorado breeders and look for those who seem knowledgeable about genetic issues and their own bloodlines. We feel strongly that those with more than four females and two stud dogs are profit oriented more than focused on the stewardship of this wonderful breed.
We feed our dogs a blend of Wellness Puppy (for pregnant bitches) and Nature’s Recipe, both highly rated in Dog Food Advisor. We mix in stewed livers, mackerel, beef, and the highly rated supplement NUPRO. After learning that a high profile Scottish litter has nutrition based cataracts and that the dam and puppies have been fed the highly touted Taste of the Wild grain free food, we turned to custom feeding with the aforementioned. Please note: grain-free foods should not be fed to bitches in whelp or to weaning puppies–they lack the essential amino acid argenine.
Here is the jaw-dropping pedigree of this mating; please scroll down for more information and to view enlarged and gorgeous photographs.

We acquired this stunning boy expressly to breed to our Angelo-Malibu daughters, for to do so also makes this a terrific line-breeding on the breed great Multi CH Ashbury Angel Heart. Angel Heart is Angelo’s sire, and Stormy’s grandsire. Angel Heart also appears in Malibu’s pedigree as the grand-sire of Barselona Priority and Majesty as he is the sire of Big Boss of the Famous Family. The pedigree is again a linebreeding on the majestic fellow Ch, Ch, Taram du Bois de la Rayere.
