TEAM RIVER ROAD

Not all of our dogs reside here on River Road.  The reason for this is I simply cannot be selfish and keep all these Goldens to myself, so I will share them.  I simply am not be the breeder that has tons of dogs on their property.  All the River Road Retrievers have normal Golden lives, they deserve no less than that.

Team River Road is River Road Retrievers that reside at our place or reside in our foster programs.  The foster program allows our Team River Road to live in a forever home while participating in our breeding program.    Team Cumberland is a Therapy Dog Program and you can read more about that under Team Cumberland.

Below you can learn about the foster families and how our Goldens live quite a wonderful and Golden life with these wonderful foster families, all of which we love and adore for giving them so much love.

All River Road Retrievers have certifications on their eyes, hearts, hips and elbows.

SYRAH SUMMER ON RIVER ROAD

“SUMMER ANNE”

Summer Anne is our Elizabeth Taylor. She is more than elegant and stunning. Summer carries herself as champion of champions. She is a lover. She has multi-champion lineages.   She is momma’s girl.  She is a diamond and is an extremely good Mother.  After weaning Summer still treats the babies, no matter whose babies they are, with the most touching motherly love.  She is a diamond and she has already produced some amazing puppies.  Her first born was our first Golden Gift.  See more about this under Golden Gifts.

Summer Anne is my “personal dog” and is permanent resident on River Road.  She is pure gold to me.

“Stella”

Stella was born on January 5, 2016 and has passed all her clearances.   Stella is very intelligent, she can take a four foot stick and manipulate it into the dog door, along with rakes and various other items.  She finds things outside that we never knew we owned.  She is delightfully funny, well mannered and a joy to be around.  We love it when Stella visits River Road.

RIVER ROAD RETRIEVERS GYPSY ROSE LEE

“Gypsy Rose”

Gypsy Rose is a Karisma X WL Golden.  When Karisma was delivering she was in labor a little longer than I like and at midnight we loaded her up and headed off to Nashville Pet Emergency.  My husband was in the back of the jeep with Karisma and half way to emergency care my husband says, in a very cool manner, “we have a pup”.  This was at the 65 / 40 split.  We returned home where the rest of the litter was born.  We had to come up with a “travelling” kind of name and Gypsy came up.  Then my husband told me to google the story of Gypsy Rose Lee.  She was a famous burlesque stripper back in the day.  Her story is very interesting and is well worth googling.   Gypsy Rose is quite a riot.  We raised her until she was eight months old before she moved in with her foster family.

Our first Golden Gift went to Braden Teague.  When they took home Bolt they had another dog in the house and Bolt has always been around other dogs.  When their dog, Bandit, passed away at 16 Bolt was depressed.  So I decided to place Gypsy Rose in the Teague home.  The two of them are inseparable.

Gypsy Rose is a very vocal Golden and talks to you when she wants something or when she just feels the need to chat.  She is GORGEOUS and has her father’s head and her mom’s temperament.

STORMY

___________________________________________________________________________________________

Stormy is not a part of our breeding program, but she is a part of the team. Stormy is our American Golden and inspiration for River Road Retrievers. We love the Storm.  She is a very active member of the team.  She is “paws on” when whelping is going on.  She loves the puppies when they are born and generally is right in the middle of everything.
