Our Retriever Family

Golden Cousins

In 2019 when we spread our retriever wings to include our golden cousins (labs, golden doodles, flat coat, curly coats etc), we realized the personalities and characteristics of each of the cousins differ based on their breed. We are sharing some helpful information with our golden lovers on the joy of also loving a Labrador Retriever…both bring joy and endless love to their owners and our rescue with each life we save.
