Lueo Duchess Renny at 8 weeks old
Our involvement with the Golden Retriever Breed
really started in 1997.
We began actively working in Golden rescue, volunteering for pickups from shelters, transports for the Canine Underground Railroad ( a system of moving rescued goldens to their adoptive forever homes across the country), and finally becoming a foster home for senior goldens.
(Unfortunately we failed as a foster home
because we seemed to adopt our "fosters")
We began researching Breeders of "English Type" goldens
in North America just prior to our last "foster" going to the
After much research and many months spent looking for a
breeder that would fulfill our "family" needs, we narrowed our
choice to Lueo Goldens of Niagara Falls, Canada.
This recent arrival(2004) was to become our
Canadian bred Lueo Duchess Renny.
She is Desended from Parents and Grandparents
who are from Famous English/Irish lines.
With these Championship lineages, Many Generations of
Healthy Hips, Hearts and Eyes, AND the careful choice of mates,
We hope to make a fine addition to the breed
and will further improve our line of
English Creme Golden retrievers.
While we enjoy both the American and the
English Type Golden Retrievers,
We prefer the Sweet Personality, Light Colors
and Dark Pigments of the True English Type.
All of Our Dogs are Certified Clear of Genetic Disorders
(Hips,Elbows,Eyes,Heart and Thyroid)
Since we are a small Breeder, our Golden's have always
been kept as house pets and share our living space.
We truly think of them as our children,
and as such we make sure all our Golden Retriever
puppies are well placed in a loving home where
they will be treated and loved just as any 2 legged child would be.
We are Members in Good Standing of
The Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA)
The Golden Retriever Club of IL (GRCI) and
Our Dogs are CKC/AKC Registered.
As members of The GRCA,
as well as the GRCI.
We adhere to a strict COE (code of ethics) set
forth as a guide for breeders. ALL of the dogs we breed [or breed to]
obtain all of the clearances recommended by the
GRCA (Golden Retriever Club of America)
including but not limited to, OFA cleared Hips, Elbows
