At Lily's White English Golden's, we believe every dog should be raised in a loving home and being a Guardian Family is an excellent way to have a beautiful English Cream Golden Retriever as a forever family pet at no expense. Since we do have such strong beliefs that each English Cream Golden deserves to be a member of a family, to continue our breeding program we rely on trustworthy, caring families who are selected to participate in our Guardian Program. This ensures that all of our future breeding dogs will be raised as a family member in a loving home environment.
The majority of Guardian Homes acquire their puppies at 8 weeks of age; however sometimes we have older females and males available. Adoption fees are waived for Guardian Families as acknowledgement for their participation. Your puppy will be the first or second “pick of the litter” and in exchange we retain breeding rights for the life of the Guardian Contract (4 successful breedings, 3 live puppies to age of 8 weeks).
For the birth of each litter, females return to Lily's White English Golden's for 7-8 weeks.
As a Guardian Family, you will be responsible for the dog’s wellness including: vet care, immunizations, socialization, proper diet, exercise... and most importantly being loved as a family pet! Any costs relating to health testing and breeding will be the responsibility of Lily's White English Golden's .
A Guardian Family must be willing and able to loan the dog back to us for health testing, usually 2 weeks during heat cycle for breeding purposes, 8 weeks whelping and raising puppies. After the dog is finished with their breeding career, she/he will be spayed/neutered by Lily's White English Golden's and the ownership of the dog will officially be transferred to the Guardian Family.
Our Guardian Homes are an integral part of Lily's White English Golden's community. We value their partnership greatly! We welcome you to ask any questions you might have about becoming a Guardian Family.
