Please contact me for information regarding litters sired by Gordie.
Gordie is a good size boy, about 23 3/4" and 75 pounds. He is well balanced with nice front and rear angulation, has an outstanding front assembly and great spring of rib, is clean coming and going, and has a lot of neck and good leg under him. Gordie's side gait is effortless and fluid. His pigment is jet black at almost 4 years old. Gordie is an old style golden retriever, with correct coat of a medium gold with light furnishings. Nothing about Gordie is overdone; this is a dog that could be working outside all day, and not need more than a bath to get ring ready. Many of Gordie's CH and GCH points have been breeder/owner handled and under GRCA breeder judges, judges who breed goldens, and at specialties and supported entries. He finished his CH with three majors. Gordie got his RN and RA with no NQs, and with very little training. He has an on/off switch, and has a good bit of goofball in him - he is just a very happy dog who loves it when he is given a job to do. Gordie is a proven stud, who breeds naturally and collects very, very well. He has had several large litters. Recent litters are really lovely and consistent overall, with hard level toplines, fantastic fronts with great shoulder assemblies and prosternum, and beautiful heads. We look forward to watching them grow!
Oban is out of my GCH Cuddy, and has 2 Best 4-6 month Puppy in All-Breed Show wins. I have high hopes for this lovely puppy! He got his Rally Novice title two days past his nine month birthday, and got his first Rally Intermediate leg with no formal training a day later.

Bucky looks like he'll end up with a dark gold coat and lots of undercoat. He is short coupled, balanced, and a beautiful mover. He has a lot of leg and a rock solid top line, excellent bone and correct angulation front and rear. He also has a beautiful face and lovely head with a super stop and has had great pigment from the moment he was born. Bucky has a great little personality, and is energetic and happy in training. He won BOB and Sporting Group 1 in 4-6 month puppy competition 2 days after his 4 month birthday, and again at just over 5 months. This boy will be a fun one!
