Welcome to Winter Ridge Golden Retrievers, where we intend to breed AKC registered, healthy family oriented show quality golden retrievers in sunny Tucson Arizona. Our passion for the English golden started in 2010 when we received our first baby golden retriever, Leila. Having always owned labradors and labrador mixes I knew what a sporting dog offered a family and when our friend encouraged us to try a golden retriever I did the research and was amazed at what I learned. The goldens are known for their mild temperments, undying devotion and exceptional retriever skills. Above all they are consistently noted to be the perfect family dog. Having 3 kids, 2 older lab mixes and 4 cats, a golden retriever puppy sounded like the perfect additon to our family. When we first received Leila it was love at first site and our passion for goldens began, quickly turning into a golden love affair. In 2011 we were fortunate enough to receive our second English golden puppy, a boy named Xander, and he's been a delightful addition to our home as well, confirming everything we've heard about the notoriously wonderful golden retriever!
Our dogs are commonly referred to as English, Cream, UK, British or European golden retrievers. Please read more about this type of golden retriever here. We use the term English Cream Golden Retriever to refer to the type of physique the dog has which typically consists of a chunkier/blockier shaped head, broader chest, slightly shorter legs and a lighter colored coat. They have the same mild temperment as American Golden Retrievers and make wonderful loving family dogs.
Also, please note that our dogs are not rare as some may claim, but quite common throughout other countries.
It is extremely important to us that we are unrelenting advocates of the golden retriever breed by adhering to the Golden Retriever Club of America's Code of Ethics. We are commited to obtaining dogs and producing litters that "possess the appearance, structure, soundness, temperament, natural ability and personality that are characterized in the standard of the breed, and to do all possible to advance and promote the perfection of these qualities"
