Responsible Golden Retriever Breeders
One of our priorities at Windy Knoll Goldens is to provide puppies that will be excellent, healthy, friendly companions, and pets for life. The foundation to achieving our goal is making sure the parents exhibit those qualities. As caring golden retriever breeders, we test our dogs for common golden retriever genetic points including DM, GRPRA1, GRPRA2, MD etc. and have them certified with the Orthopedic Foundation of America (OFA) or PennHip to ensure our breeding dogs and their puppies are not prone to genetic weaknesses. X-Ray tests and screens are performed when the dogs reach an appropriate age – usually 2 years old (OFA) and usually around 1 year old (PennHIP). As responsible golden retriever breeders we always research our pedigree for optimal breeding lines.

OFA Hips: Fair OFA Elbows: Normal OFA Heart & Eyes: Normal
Sampson is a dark red golden that we are very excited about as he is a handsom, dark golden and a big boy… around 85 lbs! Occasionally, we introduce another line of dark red goldens into our lines to spread out and diversify the lines that we have as well as make sure we have some of the deepest red goldens possible. Sampson fits the bill. (We do not own Sampson nor does he reside with us)
Green Mountain Pastures Shep – AKC Golden Retriever
“Shep” was our first and most outstanding sire at Windy Knoll Goldens. A handsome and regal fellow, sporting a rich, dark gold, thick coat, he was also friendly and laid-back. Shep was a real people dog, and loved nothing better than to play and relax with us!
