Famn Damily Farm
|Breeders of AKC Golden Retrievers since 2001
In the summer of 2000, my daughter begged me to buy a pup. I told her that I would only say
yes, if we bought a Golden Retriever. I had seen these dogs, and their love for all, along with
their patience and tolerance with both young and old. I read "Watchers," by Dean Koontz three
times, and had fallen in love with "Einstein." We purchased our first Golden Retriever, Cassie
in October 2000.
After doing extensive research and putting a lot of thought into it, we decided to breed Cass
when she was 2 years old. We have Dr. Richard Orzeck and his wife Theresa to thank for
their advise and emergency assistance involving labor issues. He acquainted us with genetic
problems inherent to Goldens and how to do our best to screen our dogs and avoid some of
the health issues that are common with the breed.
We enclosed two-and-one-half acres around our home and pond with fencing. Since I worked
out of our home, I was able to supervise, train and play with our expanding group slowly over
the next few years.
Hence, Famn Damily Farm was born.
Our main focus is calm temperament. Our dogs get along wonderfully with children and
kitties.We focus on the four major health clearances for eyes, heart, hips and elbows.
We breed dogs that have no hot spots or need to have their anal glands drained.
While our pups may be busy (because they are pups), we receive many phone calls, e-mails,
cards and letters telling us how calm they are.
When you come to see a pup, you will not see their parents in a cage. All of our dogs are
members of our family. While we do have a large pen, our dogs are seldom in it. In fact,
mom and dad will insist on meeting you. One of the Goldens' greatest goals in life is making as
many human friends as they possibly can.
A large part of our clientele is referral. We do not ship puppies!!!! We insist on meeting you
and your family as much as we expect you want to meet us and our family. People have
driven from as far as Michigan because they knew someone who had purchased a pup from
us. Many of our pups have grown to become excellent hunting, agility and companion animals
with their new families.
We are registered with N.Y.S. Dept. of Agriculture and with AKC and receive routine
inspections from both organizations We are also registered with N.Y.S. Sales tax.
