Effective October 2021
Our policy regarding general visits has changed and we are no longer scheduling "meet and greet" visits for the public due to COVID and for the protection of our home and family. We are, of course, still scheduling families for puppy pick day and puppy pick-ups individually as usual.
Due to an overwhelming number of calls we ask you contact us via email for initial puppy inquiries.
You can also find answers to many questions by downloading our Pet Agreement from our Contracts page here:

Please visit our Planned Litters page for information on our current and upcoming litters and information on how to reserve a beautiful English Cream Golden Retriever Puppy of your very own! Our puppies are raised in our home with us, their parents, aunts, cousins and sisters. Our puppies receive nothing but constant love, attention and social manners from the minute they’re born to the day they take their place in your life and your heart. We are a small family breeder with all of our dogs and puppies living in our home with a lovely large one acre, fenced-in yard just 20 minutes southwest of downtown Richmond, VA. We are proud to boast having puppies in Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Ohio, North and South Carolinas, Florida, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, Colorado, and even California! Once you’ve met a Shadymist Puppy, you won’t want to settle for anything less!
Absolutely NO cages, puppy pens are used occasionally to keep order in the house, but never kennels, or runs or outdoor doghouses. No overcrowded or attention hungry dogs or puppies IN or FROM this home! Although we do not use crates as a general rule ourselves, many Shadymist puppy families and friends do with great success. We agree that crate use is highly recommended for at least the first few months as it aids in house-training, prevents boredom destruction, maintains a safe environment for the puppy from curiosity mishaps, as well as a peaceful place to nap with a toy and a blanket. (It is best if you plan to leave your new puppy crated ONLY for as many hours as he/she is months old the first 8 months or so to avoid messy crate mishaps.) Your English Cream Golden Retriever puppy is raised from birth to your home within our home with constant love, attention and interactive stimulation, all of which promote a healthy, stable people-loving personality with good basic manners!
