Welcome to Ardorgold English Golden Retrievers– A litter of “English Creams”–the prevalent descriptive term for cream-coated dogs within this wonderful breed, originally developed in the United Kingdom in accordance with The Golden Retriever Club of the United Kingdom’s Breed Standard, in the oven– we had hoped for spring litter but our girl had a split heat and we await Angelo-Malibu puppies in mid-June. You can read about us and our dogs, including looking at their pedigrees, below and elsewhere on the site. Here is our revised protocol on this litter:
If our puppies to be sound appealing to you, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I will be happy to put your name on our list and contact you when the litter is born and we are sure that we can justify taking your deposit. The puppies will be $2500.00, deposit in cashier’s check $250.00. Shipping would generally be $250 or thereabouts via United Pet Safe or by ground courier–that would be an extra cost.
Soon we will upload our contract. We will not be selling any breeding stock; you will receive copies of the parents’ export pedigrees and health records on the puppies; we will supply you with an interim Affadavit of Lineage or sporting dog registry paper; we are in the process of signing up Angelo and Malibu with a purpose-based registry other than AKC; AKC would register our imports but is not our first choice. It is likely that the sire and dam will be FDSB, the Field Dog Stud Book registry and the oldest sporting dog registry in the country–highly respected.
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 five 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 Eagle Pack Power and Nature’s Recipe, both highly rated in Dog Food Advisor. 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.
Our reservation list is open; purchase price is $2500.00. We are accepting $250.00 deposits via certified checks for both male and female puppies (see contact info in sidebar). We need to speak with you on the telephone at a minimum, with a few questions, prior to reserving a puppy for you.
Here is the jaw-dropping pedigree of this mating; please scroll down for more information and to view enlarged and gorgeous photographs.
