High Caliber AKC OFA Golden Retriever Puppies
Phineas, the sireKeziah, the motherKezi FallCopy of HappyMOM


These eleven beautiful Golden Retriever puppies are family raised in the Central Minnesota country.  Their fur color ranges from medium light to dark reddish gold.   They are ready to transfer to new homes at the perfect age of 7-8 weeks-old starting Sept. 18, 2013.    Males or females cost $600 each, with full AKC registration and breeding rights.   As of August 27, 2013, all the puppies have been sold.

The parents are both on site and are OFA hip-certified (Good), with an excellent medical history.   They have wonderful “Golden” temperaments; obedient, sensitive, people-loving, protective as watchdogs, etc.  They are also excellent retrievers, not gun shy, and come from hunting bloodlines.   The mother Keziah is a descendent of two NATIONAL amateur field champions, Top Brass Cotton and Brasdor’s Razzl Dazzl.   Her bloodlines include titles in obedience, Companion Dog, retrieving, Hall of Fame, etc.   The sire Phineas is also from field champion bloodlines.   Even if you aren’t searching for a hunting dog, these Goldens have all the qualities you want in a pet…very trainable and alert!  Keziah naturally started to learn hand signals and “looks to the master” for orders when out on the trail.  Both parents are trained to “Come” with a whistle, as well as the verbal command.   Phineas is a perfect, handsome gentleman.  Customers rave about the puppies’ compatibility with kids.

Phineas weighs about 70lbs; Keziah is 60lbs.  Both conform to the standards of the golden retriever breed, set by the AKC.  

The puppies are not cage-confined, but gradually gain their independence by freely exiting the parents’ kennel into an outdoor puppy playpen.  Our family members visit and cuddle them at least five times per day, so they are very socially developed.  The puppies live the first week inside our home, but are well adapted to the outdoor weather by the time of adoption.   They receive much devoted attention, since we don’t raise any other dogs.  

The puppies have a written 26-month health guarantee (heart, eyes, hips, elbows, etc.) and have been bred to minimize hereditary issues. They will have had first shots, deworming, and vet check.  A medical records booklet is included with each pup, as well as a little bag of our puppy food to mix with your chosen brand. 

We live between Staples and Bertha, MN on a paved road.  To locate, our address is 21729 County 24, Staples, MN  56479.  Please email or call anytime with further questions.   References are available. Pedigrees can be emailed upon request.   I will hold a puppy until an agreed date, if a non-refundable $50 deposit/downpayment is made through personal check or cash to Kathy Shaffer .   Customer selection of puppies at 7-8 weeks-old is based on the order of deposit.   Our home phone is:  218-924-2079.   Inquire only if you are a serious potential buyer.   Website:  marshwoodgoldens.weebly.com

I\’m sorry, we do not ship these puppies


Testimonies from two happy customers:

1. “ Just thought I would give you an update on our dog Gus as he turns a year old. He was the last one in your litter to find a home, and we\’ve certainly given him a happy one!

He has a gorgeous fluffy, curly coat. He loves retrieving his tennis ball and would do so for hours. His other favorite activity is playing with our children. I\’m convinced he thinks he is one of them. 🙂

He\’s a happy, very active boy who fits into our family nicely. He shares the house with our 4 yr old goldendoodle whom he adores. We also have a cat that he is dying to play with but kitty is not as interested.

He has completed one round of obedience training with more to come. He is definitely a smart boy and aims to please.


 2.  “Merry Christmas    Yes I did get a puppy from you last Christmas eve. She is a excellent animal; calm, smart, very easy to train, the kids favorite. She did very well in her first season hunting pheasants.  Still a little time left in the season for more experience. Thanks again and Happy holidays.


P.S   We bagged 9 birds for the season. She retrieved one without a shot.”
