Heroes Gold puppies are responsibly bred for health, temperament and beauty. We pride ourselves on the personal communication we provide to our new puppy families. Each of our puppies are handled, loved, and observed through the many weeks they are raised in our home, before leaving with their new family. Our best efforts are given in communicating with each new family the temperament we see in each of our puppies. Our puppy's future temperament and behavior will be a reflection of the care and training received in each of their new home environments. Our Golden Retrievers, are, by nature, loving, gentle, family dogs, exhibiting non-aggressive behavior. However, we make no guarantee to the eventual temperament or personality of your puppy/dog, as we can not control the influence of environment or training given in each new home. We strongly recommend a puppy obedience class, to ensure a happy and strong relationship between you and your new puppy.
