WHY ENGLISH CREAM GOLDEN RETRIEVERS?

 

We owned, loved and bred American Golden Retrievers prior to discovering the English Cream Goldens. While both make wonderful family pets, the improved health and longevity of the English Cream Goldens has earned them a special place in our hearts, and we want to give you a chance to enjoy the boundless love and companionship these amazing dogs have to offer.

 

All Golden Retrievers are descended from a line originally bred in Scotland in the late 1800's, and they come in a spectrum of colors ranging from pale cream to golden red. English Cream Golden Retrievers (also called English Crème Golden Retrievers, English Golden Retrievers, European Golden Retrievers, Blonde Golden Retrievers, or White Golden Retrievers) are not a separate breed. Throughout Europe, the UK, Canada and even Australia, they are just called Golden Retrievers. The other nicknames are used by Americans to differentiate the American Goldens from those bred to conform to the European breed standards. In addition to their distinctive pale cream coat, the European standards typically produce Goldens with a blockier head, slightly shorter frame, and a more mellow temperament than their American counterparts. 

 

We love the English Cream Goldens for their striking good looks and gentle, intelligent and eager-to-please disposition. More importantly however, studies performed by the Golden Retriever Club of America, Kennel Club in the United Kingdom, and other organizations, found significantly lower rates of cancer and joint probems among the English Cream/European Goldens. This generally affords them longer, healthier lives and is most likely due to the greater genetic diversity among the European bloodlines.
