Explore Unique Golden Retriever Mixes for Sale – Find Your Perfect Companion Today!

I remember the day I first set eyes on a litter of golden retriever puppies. They were so small and adorable, with their fluffy fur and wagging tails. Little did I know at the time that this encounter would change my life and lead me down the path of becoming a breeder of golden retriever mixes.

The idea of a mini golden retriever breed had not yet been established in 1989 when I first encountered these darling puppies. The litter consisted of golden cocker retriever pups, which looked like miniature versions of golden retrievers. I couldn’t resist picking out a beautiful female puppy and giving her the name Muffin Lacey, or “Muffy” for short.

Muffy had a wonderful temperament and all who met her fell in love with her. She had the classic look of a petite golden retriever and shed very little, thanks to the low shedding gene inherited from her cocker spaniel parent. Soon, friends, family, and even neighbors began expressing their desire for a puppy just like Muffy.

Driven by this demand, I embarked on a journey of extensive research. I spent countless hours reading books, attending dog shows, and consulting with veterinarians to learn everything I could about breeding miniature golden retrievers with an emphasis on health and low shedding. This is how the Taylormade Mini Goldens came to be.

Today, with the help of advances in genetic testing, we can identify our golden cocker retrievers and mini golden retrievers as low shedding. However, we also have mini goldens that shed more, and I’m here to help you understand the differences in their coats so you can find the best fit for your family.

You may be wondering how we create a miniature golden retriever. Well, we achieve this by breeding a golden retriever, a cocker spaniel, and a poodle. Each breed brings its own unique qualities to the mix. The golden retriever is known for its wonderful temperament and stunning looks, while the cocker spaniel helps keep the size down and reduces shedding. The poodle, on the other hand, adds intelligence, helps control the size, and shortens the ears of the cocker spaniel in the offspring.

One of the biggest benefits of Taylormade Mini Goldens is that they generally have fewer health problems. By carefully selecting and testing our parent dogs, we can drastically reduce the risk of hip dysplasia, eye problems, and ear infections. We conduct health tests with reputable organizations such as the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, Embark DNA genetics, Paw Print DNA Genetics, and PennHip.

Size is another factor that sets our mini goldens apart. Our goal is to breed smaller-sized dogs, ranging from 20-50 lbs and 12-18 inches tall. In comparison, full-sized golden retrievers typically weigh between 65-100 lbs and stand 21-24 inches tall. The size of our mini goldens depends on the parent dogs chosen, with our toy and micro mini goldens coming from dams and sires under 25 lbs, while our medium-sized mini golden retrievers come from dams and sires over 25 lbs.

While we strive to preserve the classic golden retriever look as much as possible, it’s important to note that we cannot guarantee size due to DNA and lifestyle factors. Nonetheless, our mini goldens are registered with the International Designer Canine Registry, which ensures their authenticity and quality.

Another major advantage of Taylormade Mini Goldens is their reduced shedding. Thanks to the low-shedding gene from the cocker spaniel and non-shedding nature of poodles, our mini goldens shed less compared to their full-sized counterparts. However, it’s important to note that they are still considered shedding dogs. Some families, though, prefer the classic look of the shedding coat, characterized by a thick, mane-like appearance, while others opt for a moderate or higher shedding coat that has an irresistible charm of its own.

Personality is another aspect we carefully consider in our breeding program. By diluting the gene pool of the three breeds, we believe that the best traits of the mini golden retriever are brought to the forefront. These dogs are friendly, confident, and great with children. While they may not make the best guard dogs, as they tend to befriend everyone, they will alert their owners if they sense any danger.
