WE CONGRATULATE PARKER FAMILY ROBERTSONS FOR THEIR PURCHASE OF THE BEAUTIFUL, FEMININE CREAM PUP “DAISY” 

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR ENGLISH GOLDEN RETRIEVER: 

GOLDENS ARE ALL ONE BREED, FIRST ESTABLISHED IN SCOTLAND IN THE EDWARDIAN ERA BY ONE LORD TWEEDMOUTH, AT HIS STUNNING ESTATE GUISACHEN.

“ENGLISH CREAM” IS NOT A BREED TYPE OR A SEPARATE BREED–THIS TERMINOLOGY MERELY REFERS TO COAT-C0LOR. NO COMPETENT BREEDER SELECTS BREEDING STOCK ON THE BASIS OF COAT COLOR ALONE.  THE “PROPER” WAY TO REFER TO THESE DOGS, AS THEY ORIGINATED IN GREAT BRITAIN/UK, IS “BRITISH CREAM-COATED GOLDEN RETRIEVERS.” OR “U.K.” GOLDEN RETRIEVERS, OR IN OUR VERNACULAR, ENGLISH GOLDEN RETRIEVERS. JUST AS IN THE U.S., THE BEAUTIFUL GOLDENS OF EUROPE AND ELSEWHERE COME IN A VARIETY OF SHADES RANGING FROM CREAM TO GOLD. THE GB/UK KENNEL BREED STANDARD PERMITS THE CREAM COAT; THE AKC/GRCA STANDARD DOES NOT, GENERALLY FAULTING IT IN THE CONFORMATION RING.

PEDIGREE MATTERS. A STRONG PEDIGREE OF CHAMPIONS AND PROMINENT FOUNDATION DOGS AND BITCHES MAKES A SMART, OUTGOING, BEAUTIFUL MEGA-PUPPY.  

OUR DOGS ARE OUR FAMILY MEMBERS. MANY AMERICAN “ENGLISH CREAM” OR “WHITE DOG” BREEDERS–THE WORST OFFENDERS OF ALL, HAVING NO IDEA WHO THEY HAVE REALLY IMPORTED AND INSTALLED IN AN OUTDOOR RUN TO LIVE OUT ITS LIFE EXCEPT FOR WHEN IT IS IN A WHELPING ROOM WITH ITS PUPPIES, ARE CLUELESS.  

ADDITIONALLY, AS NOTED, OVER FIVE GENERATIONS OF CLEAR HIPS AND EYES EXIST IN THE PEDIGREE, TOP AND BOTTOM. THAT WE HAVE RESEARCHED AND HAVE SCREENED OUR BREEDING STOCK FOR THE STANDARD HEREDITARY DEFECTS IS YOUR GUARANTEE THAT WE HAVE DONE OUR DUE DILIGENCE.

AT THE OTHER END OF THE PUPPY MILL SPECTRUM, WE HAVE SO-CALLED FANCIERS WHO TOW THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER CLUB OF AMERICA LINE WITH THEIR “YES MASSA” ADHERENCE TO WHAT THIS ORGANIZATION CALLS THE ONLY RIGHT WAY TO RAISE GOLDENS.  NO, YOUR CLEARANCES DO NOT HAVE TO BE POSTED AT OFFA.ORG.  YOU CAN PUT THEM ON YOUR SITE OR E-MAIL THEM TO PUPPY BUYERS.  EVERY PAGE OF OUR WEBSITE MAY BE PRINTED OUT FOR A TERRIFIC, INFORMATIVE  COLOR PORTFOLIO ON YOUR PUPPY.  WE LEAVE THAT UP TO YOU.  WE ARE ETHICAL, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BREEDERS– SEE OUR KUDOS PAGE– AND WE APOLOGIZE TO NO OTHER BREEDER, BREED CLUB OR HEAVYWEIGHT INDIVIDUAL FOR OUR INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO BREEDINGS   OUR VETERINARIAN IS ONE OF THE TOP REPRO VETS IN THE COUNTRY AND HE LOVES OUR DOGS.

ABOUT GUARANTEES.  ALL  NON CONGENITAL (BIRTH)  HEREDITARY DEFECTS ARE POLYGENIC, MEANING AS MULTIPLE GENES. A GIVEN DEFECT SUCH AS HIP DYSPLASIA CAN BE EITHER DOMINANT OR RECESSIVE IN ANY GIVEN GENERATION. DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU THEY CAN GUARANTEE THEIR PUPPIES AGAINST THE STANDARD DEFECTS. MANY “ENGLISH CREAM BREEDERS” ARE IGNORANT!  TWO CLEARED PARENTS CAN PRODUCE A DYSPLASTIC LITTER.  CLEARANCES ARE IMPORTANT SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY REDUCE THE ODDS. WE SAY THAT OUR PUPPIES, HAVING SCREENED PARENTS AND MANY GENERATIONS OF CLEAR EYES AND HIPS ABROAD, HAVE AN OPTIMUM CHANCE OF BEING SOUND FOR THEIR LIFESPAN. IT IS DISHONEST TO ISSUE GUARANTEES RIGHT AND LEFT AS SELLING POINTS.   SEE OUR BLOODSTOCK HEALTH PAGE HERE. 

ARDORGOLD HAS ONE BREEDING PAIR AND FOUR UP AND COMING PUPPIES.  WE ARE A SELF-SUFFICIENT PRESERVATION BREEDER, MEANING WE ARE DEVOTED TO CERTAIN BLOODLINES AND CURATING THEM THROUGH SELECTIVE LINE-BREEDING, AND BRINGING SPECIFIC DOGS OVER TO THIS SIDE OF THE POND OR USING FROZEN SEMEN FROM DOGS WITH OUR PREFFERED BLOODLINES WITHOUT THE NEED, FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE,  TO GO OUTSIDE OUR PROGRAM.

FINALLY, OUR DOGS ARE TOO PRECIOUS TO US TO LIVE OUTDOORS.  THEY LIVE WITH US, SLEEPING BY OUR BEDSIDES, INTEGRATED INTO OUR DAILY LIVES. EGRESS OUT OF EVERY DOOR OF OUR COLORADO HOME IS FENCED FOR THEM. NEVER BUY FROM A USDA-LICENSED BREEDER; A USDA LICENSE IS YOUR CLUE THAT YOU ARE BUYING FROM A GLORIFIED PUPPY MILL WHOSE DOGS ARE WAREHOUSED WITHOUT HUMAN CONTACT FOR THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.

Angelo knock-out Ardorgold “Dash” 2016 – this couple chose English Cream Golden Retriever Dash out of the line up.

Golden Retrievers are gun-dogs and true companions first and trophy acquisitions, lawn ornaments and chick magnets last! We register our imported breeding stock first with the premier Field Dog Stud Book, the oldest purebred gundog registry in the US. Upon receipt of buyer’s registration application, AND receipt of FDSB registration, our buyers are free to also register with AKC; AKC recognizes that registry.

This is a permanent post for latest news.  Please scroll down to read updates…

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!

About Ardorgold

 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.

Angelo’s four-and five generation pedigrees at k9data:

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.

Further Details

 Here is the jaw-dropping pedigree of this mating; please scroll down for more information and to view enlarged and gorgeous photographs.

Not only is Angelo the son of CH Ashbury Angel Heart, bred and handled by Cathy Sontag, Ashbury, France, he is the grandson of one of the most spectacular dogs in the world, a dog who won the World Championship in Milan last year, Multi CH Arni Joy.

Angelo’s beautiful mother CH Lislone Garbank Loch Affric, Lislone-Garbank being one of the top five UK breeders, was bred to Joy and the rest is history.

Angelo is not a huge Golden; he is slow maturing, like his grandsire.  But he is hands down the most exquisite Golden I have ever seen and there is no doubt in my mind that he will set the world on fire once he hits the showring.
