Holly is co-owned by Jamel & Charity Hamka and Walter & Ann Wagner. Walter Wagner is the Senior Pastor of Southview Baptist Church in Statesville, NC. The pups are raised in their home only a couple of miles from the Hamkas. The Wagners are part of Recherche Goldens and therefore raise each puppy with the same precision outlined on our website.
Holly is a calm, confident & intelligent girl. She’s very affectionate but not overly. She has a perfect middle-of-the-road, easy going personality. She follows us around but doesn’t always have to be touching us. She gets along with everyone and is extremely well behaved. She’s not destructive or hyper…even as a puppy! She’s one of our tallest English Goldens and weighs about 5-10 lbs more than our average female English. She has a very light coat that’s not excessively thick (her pups won’t shed as much!).
Holly just recently passed all of her health clearances with flying colors. Her hips were score BVA 4:4 which is OFA equivalent to “Excellent.” Only 4% of all Golden Retrievers ever score “Excellent.” You can see her hip score HERE and perfect elbow score HERE. She was tested by a canine opthamologist and passed getting her eye clearance and she also received her heart clearance. Not only does she have perfect health clearances, she has generations of health tested parents. If you study her pedigree, you notice in just 3 generations she has 10 parents & grandparents out of 14 scoring “Excellent” and the 4 others scoring “Good.” Safe to say, her pups will have a very little chance of ever developing dysplasia!
Holly’s pedigree is incredible. Her father is International Champion Dutch which makes her grandfather the winningest Golden in the world we know of today…Dewmist Silk Screen. If you study her pedigree you will find several World Champion, International Champion along with several English/UK, Czech, Slovakian, Polish, Dutch, German, Norway, Luxembourg, & Irish champions there.
Holly’s health clearances are perfect. Only 4% of Goldens have “Excellent” hips and she is in that category. She also has perfect elbow, eyes and heart clearance.
