Abbie & Ethan are proud parents of Lily (name can change) born January 9, 2019. Click on the names or the below pictures to look at the parents. This is one of our most anticipated litters we have ever produced. Ethan is our newest “rockstar” here at Recherche Kennels. He was produced by us between Int. Champion Amos & Int. Champion Asha. He is the best pup we have ever produced and we chose to keep him to eventually replace Amos. He has better health clearances than Amos. He has a thicker coat and blockier head than Amos. He also is more confident than Amos. This is Ethan’s first litter and we chose to breed him with Abbie because she is the most dependent and loving of our females. She’s also very healthy so this combination may be the best we ever have produced. Both parents scored in the top 4% of Golden Retrievers with their health clearances which is very rare.
Lily (name can change) has a wonderful balanced personality. She is slightly outgoing, slightly dependent and slightly confident. She loves to be with people but she’s not a dog that’s super pushy or needy. She’s outgoing and will play but she’s not hyper or high energy. When you love on her she’s super calm and laid back but when you play with her she’s very playful and goofy. She’s was listed for sale later for a couple of reasons. First, we had several litters born early January and we kept several of the pups back to be trained in our DDD program. Secondly, she had something that’s called Mild Non-Progressive Cerebral tremors. We’ve actually had many pups that get this when their young and they eventually grow out of it. She hasn’t. Basically it looks like her head is going side-to-side mildly when she’s trying to focus. She has been tested and seen a neurologist but they didn’t find any problems with her bloodwork and there was nothing physical they seen. They said most likely it will go away or it will just stay the same. It’s “non-progressive” and “mild.” Just in case, we will provide the owners with an 8 year warranty for any neurological issues in addition to our regular 4 year warranty. We also lowered her price $5000 for the additional risk. She is an absolutely beautiful girl and probably the best looking girl in her litter. She has a beautiful blocky head and solid white coat. She is an average-sized girl in her litter and our best guess is that she will be probably around 60-65 lbs full grown with a beautiful blocky head and white coat. She comes with a very realistic 4-year health warranty.
Abbie pups were so good, that we featured them (along with 2 other litter pups) on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on April 4, 2019. Below is the video with Lily and our other pups:
