We have started to work on the development
of a Miniature Retriever !
goal is to produce a replica of the full size Golden Retriever,
but in a smaller to much smaller package!

you are like our family, you LOVE LOVE LOVE Golden Retrievers. But
if you are also like us, you don't necessarily care for their LARGE size!
After much careful planning our very first
litter of puppies was born in 1989. Which means we have over 34 years of experience with dog breeding and dog breed
development. Over the course of those 30+ years we have worked with a few different breeds. In 2005 we started
working with the Golden Retriever / Mini Poodle hybrid creation for Goldendoodles. In 2011 we expanded on those Golden/Poodle
genetics to develop our own line of Miniature Golden Retrievers.
As of 2024 most all of the Mini
Retriever puppies that we offer for sale have a MINIMUM of 66% Golden Retriever in their background and the highest is
85%. Most are usually around 73%. Most all of the pups that we offer for sale are the result of a Mini Retriever
being bred to a Mini Retriever (sometimes we breed a Mini Retriever male to a smaller purebred Golden Retriever female) .
(In 2024 there is an exception with the puppies sired by Monte - his pups will be around 30 - 40% Golden Retriever.)
Our pups are a part of an advancing "breed" creation. As a Professional Canine Breed
Developer, our goal is about the continual advancement and betterment of this breed. Each litter is planned to combine
certain specific qualities of two different parent dogs and lineages so that WE can choose a puppy from resulting
litters that presents with the qualities that were strived for. The pups we choose for ourselves will become
a future parent dog to continue the advancement of our very unique and rare breed of dog. This is history
in the making. (P.S. ALL dog breeds were created by "humankind". Look into the background of any
breed and you will find the original people that were crossing "this with that" to get "a new breed" that
had certain characteristics that were desirable to them and their situations. So everyone can thank the dog breeders
that went before us for creating all of the wonderful dog breed choices that we have today. )
In general, our Mini Retrievers are fabulous dogs, smart, sweet natured, loving
that have proven to be great with children and other pets. We personally raise our dogs up with cats and they all get

On average, for 2024, our Mini Retrievers range in the 30 - 40 pound range. But on occasion
we can get a very small toy sized that are 18 pounds and at times a very large size as well. On the high end we can
get 60+ pounds. (Still that is 25 lbs. smaller than an 85 pound Golden Retriever !) Our goal is to
consistently be in the 32 - 36 pound range.
