Welcome to Eastern Shore Goldens! We are a small family hobby breeder of English Cream Golden Retrievers and we love our dogs like family. We have a small amount of litters per year, as we are very intent on furthering the English Cream Golden Retriever breed as a whole. We are located in Fairhope, Alabama which is just across the bay from Mobile, AL. Our dogs are raised in our home as members of our family and we live on 2 acres of land in Fairhope with plenty of room to roam. We feed our goldens retrievers nothing but the best, which we have found to be large breed Blue Buffalo dog and puppy food. Visit us on Facebook to see more pictures of our dogs.
I have been passionate about Golden Retrievers ever since the first one I had. We named him Lucky because he survived a car accident the first night we had him. It turns out we were the lucky ones! He was the best furry member of our family. When he died of cancer, it took me 6 years to get another Golden.
Raising Goldens is a passion of mine because it brings me such joy to promote this breed, and know that I am putting quality dogs out into our world. In the past I studied biology, so genetics have become an interest of mine. To assist bringing new life into the world is an incredible experience, especially as I get to watch the pups grown and change the lives of our clients. Seeing the joy on the faces of a family when they first meet their new Golden Retriever is always a special moment!
Eastern Shore Goldens are all AKC registered with European bloodlines. All of our retrievers come with health clearances. They have seen specialists to ensure they have no genetic defects. Our goldens have had their hips and elbows checked by OFA or FCI. They have also been evaluated for heart and eye issues. All of our retrievers come with a warranty. If you don't live near Fairhope, we are happy to meet you part of the way to bring your furry friend to you. We also ship our golden retrievers if you live further away. Shipping puppies is very common and is not harmful to the dogs. Shipping prices vary depending on the flight, crate, and required health clearances. All of our English Cream Golden Retrievers are ready to join their new families when they are 8 weeks old.

I became interested in raising golden retrievers and started investigating the English Cream variety of retrievers that I had not heard of before. They were added to the English standard in 1936. After years of selective breeding, they were given the name English Cream Golden Retrievers, but really they are more known as light goldens. I also found out that the cancer rate of English Cream Golden Retrievers is only 38.8% as compared to 60% for other goldens, more so due to breeding standards. I worked for a veterinarian years prior, so I am familiar with pet medical care. I was also lucky enough to befriend Alyson Stuart of Southland Goldens, who has been raising English Cream Goldens for years. Alyson took me under her wing and taught me all about breeding goldens. Breeding has been a dream of mine and after a lot of research and learning it all came together.
So far we have had 2 litters of English Cream Golden Retrievers. The first was 12 puppies! Soon after, we had another litter on the way. Alyson guided me through my first litter, knowing that I would have my hands full with so many newborn pups. The second litter of 7 pups came along just 4 weeks later, which I have raised on my own with the help of my family. Our Current Litters page will give you more information on the puppies we have available.
English Cream Golden Retrievers are a wonderful and loving breed with a sweet natured puppy like disposition and a love of play. At about 4 weeks old, goldens begin to learn from the world around them. It is essential that these experiences be positive for at least the first 12 weeks of their life to ensure they gain confidence in themselves and new situations. Golden Retrievers are obedient and highly intelligent dogs who always seem to be smiling. While not guard dogs, goldens love everyone and are eager to please which makes them a great family pet. Their steady temperament also makes them good companions for other animals. English Cream Golden Retrievers are generally lighter in color and have a stockier build than the American variety. Their average lifespan is around 12 years, whereas the American variety is usually between 10 - 11 years. If you're looking for a furry friend to add to your family, you have found a well rounded breed that will surely be a loving companion for many years.
