3 Thirsty Cowboys..Angelo progeny, 2016.

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, available soon–we are accepting deposits ($250.00 Cashier’s Check) and will update this page–read on!  Soon I’ll post a log of accepted deposits in a text box on the sidebar– we’ll take 4 reservations for a female and 4 for a male.  Your deposits will be refunded in full if Malibu does not produce a litter.  

Update February 18, 2017:  Our beautiful girl has been in season; we have performed several AI’s to supplement beautiful Angelo’s hard work!  We will palpate Malibu around day 23 from the first AI and/or undergo pregnancy confirmation by our veterinarian.  Both sire and dam of this litter have basic “clearances”– hip, elbow, heart and eyes specialist verification of freedom from heritable disease.  Check back for updates!  Contact info in the sidebar.

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.

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 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.

Further Details

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.

This is a glorious puppy bitch–about seven months at this wonderful photo shoot courtesy of Melissa Egbert Wren of Sweetheart Therapy Dogs– we hope to have another such shoot as our stunning mated pair of English Creams has just passed the one year mark.
