Golden Hearts Retrievers is absolutely amazing, and I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a golden puppy! We loved that Stephen provided weekly updates and pictures of the puppies – from birth until pick up. On the day of pick up, Stephen was very organized, and made sure we were prepared to take home our little guy with a couple parting gifts. Overall, Golden Hearts Retrievers was super easy to work with and gave us a perfect puppy, Sully!

My wife and I had been looking for a breeder for our new Goldie for a few months before we found Steven and Golden Hearts Retrievers and we are so thankful for finding him. Steven was so easy to work with, open to every question and concern. He provided constant updates and photos of the puppies. He was also careful to interview my wife and I so he knew one of his Goldie puppies was going to a loving home. We would recommend Steven & Golden Hearts Retrievers 100%! By the way, Daisy turned 1 year old today!

We picked our beautiful boy up in early January and could not be happier with our sweet, smart, sassy boy! He is so extremely intelligent, was totally house trained within six short weeks. He’s now 9 months old and is your typical angsty teen! LOL.

We are firm believers in rescues and really vacillated on whether to go with a breeder. We checked out Golden Retriever rescues, but none had pups and that is what we really wanted. So, my daughter did much research into breeders and really found the best! Stephen takes such wonderful care of his pups and it shows. When we picked Oliver up, he was ready with all pertinent information. As he handed Oliver off to my daughter, he repeatedly said “Please take good care of him”….it’s obvious he is concerned about his pups even after they are adopted and I firmly believe that is what shapes their personalities. Oliver is so sweet and kind to everyone! I fear large dogs, but our sweet boy is so gentle and loving of everyone and everything that I am more than comfortable with him. He is great with my daughter’s three cats and, albeit scary and big to out little terrier mix dog, and great with her also! Once again, I believe that is due to the tender loving care he received prior to our adopting him.

In closing, I really want to say “THANK YOU STEPHEN” for this new member of our family. We all cherish him and can’t wait for our next adventure with him!!! The pictures I’ve posted are from shortly after we picked him up to yesterday! He’s so gorgeous and loved so very, very much!
