So the journey begins...
Six years ago, I set out on a lifetime dream. I have always wanted to breed and raise healthy, beautiful dogs. With my family's support (for without them, none of this is possible) we set out to find the perfect breeding dog.
Because we own and have owned Goldendoodles, we could not think of a more perfect breed for our family and one for your family as well. We set out to acquire a female Golden Retriever from a European background or an English Golden Retriever.
After a year of research, prayer, and endless searching, we found a perfect English Golden Retriever as the foundation of our breeding program, Ellie. She was more than I ever expected in a dog and a companion.
Ellie had us four outstanding litters. We are blessed that she was our first breeding dog. She was an excellent mother to her pups (and showed me patience and tenderness through countless all nighters!)
So the journey continues...
Ellie has recently retired and we are starting our second generation with Rayne and Scarlett(Ellie's daughters). Ellie will be a wonderful grandmother!
In addition, we have a young English Retriever (Jersey) that will carry our litters of F1 Goldendoodles. Please visit our dogs page for information on both.
Our philosophy at Grace Goldens is for you to fall in love with your puppy and keep it healthy for years to come. Healthy breeding dogs lessen the risk of health issues.
I have selected parents from the highest quality and of good health. We chose our foundation from English Golden Retrievers because of their health, extremely laid-back temperaments, blocky Teddy-Bear heads and overall beauty.
Goldendoodle Association of North America is the first and only breed club established for the Goldendoodle. Membership is limited to breeders that provide proof of HEALTH CLEARANCES on all their breeding dogs AND agree to a strict CODE OF ETHICS regarding their breeding practices and the care of their dogs.
Grace Goldens is proud to be one of the Goldendoodle Breeders in the state of Alabama in this elite association.
Grace Goldens and GANA share the same mission of promoting the development of the Goldendoodle to achieve desired breed standards (coat, health, and temperament) while maintaining optimum health.
