South Branch customers are individuals and families looking for the best quality pet available. Since 1950, we have been breeding top quality Golden Retrievers. At South Branch, we take every step possible, from proper nutrition and exercise, to seeking out top international bloodlines for our breeding program, to ensure our puppies are genetically sound and healthy, with mild and gentle temperaments. Our goldens are bred to be consistent with the Golden Retriever Breed Standard.

The puppies shown below are from our Summer 2013 litter and have gone to their new homes. Please contact Charity for details on reserving a future South Branch Golden Puppy. 

Hi. What's shakin'? We are the boys, BTW...get it...B(by)T(the)W(way)...always good to lend a hand to those still communicating in the dark ages. At any rate...the other day we were thinking that it's almost time for BACK TO SCHOOL!!! And you know what that means...

Olive Becker Boys

Dude, don't play games...WHAT does THAT mean???

Olive Becker Boys

Come on, Einstein...you know! Readin', Ritin' and 'Rithmatic...the three R'ssss...no more loungin' around smellin' the flowers for us.

Olive Becker Boys

Of course I know. But what about RECESS!?!?! You forgot the 4th and most important R! Who cares about the other stuff???

Olive Becker Boys

Hey, do you guys think you could tone it down a little? And, BTW, Harvard and Yale care about the other stuff, but for you guys there's always Burger Heaven. Until my snoozefest was so rudely interrupted, I was dreamin' about the big sale over at Toys "R" Us...that's MY favorite R!!! Do you think Mamma cleaned out the mini van to make room for all the new stuff she's buyin' us for Back to School? Let's see...4 no. 2 pencils, 1 art smock, 2 glue sticks, 2 freezer packs for lunch box, 1 small umbrella (?), 1 safety scissors, 4 pocket folders x 7...good grief! Hope she doesn't run out of money before she gets to the good stuff...

Olive Becker Boys

Yeah, like Kong Puppy Toy, Nylabone Dinosaur Chew, ChuckIt Large Flying Squirrel...all our faves!

Olive Becker Boys

But don't foget the TREATS!!!!! Mamma always makes room for a few treats. She loves us:)

Below are the GIRLS from the Summer 2013 litter...

Geez, are the boys talking about school again? Toys? Who wants toys...??? Toys are for BABIES and Simpletons. We want NEW OUTFITS! Duh!

Olive Becker Girls

Yes, in all our favorite colors: Pink, Pink and MORE PINK!!!

Olive Becker Girls

There's got to be at least 50 Shades of Pink...and, anything Sparkly, of course. The more Bling, the better. 

Olive Becker Girls

Not to sound Cliché, but you know Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend, Dahling...

Olive Becker Girls

But more importantly...Dogs are everyone's best friend, my dear...

What? More important that DIAMONDS!?! Speak for yourself!!! I want it Pink, Sparkly and Semi-Precious:) Kinda like us!

Dude, I'm not sure what it is...but boy does it smell ANCIENT! I bet it's been under this tree all winter! 

Could it be...Truffles???

Leaves...kinda like truffles, but with a bit more crunch.

SB Pups 2012

I bet you wonder what I'm doin' down here without my life preserver...me, too.

SB Pups 2012

I'm telling you...shaved scrupulously over a pile of Pappardelle in the Piedmont with a lovely Barolo...or atop some delicately scrambled eggs with a touch of cream in the South of France...they're a real delicacy. 

SB Pups 2012

"The most learned men have been questioned as to the nature of this tuber, and after two thousand years of argument and discussion their answer is the same as it was on the first day: we do not know. The truffles themselves have been interrogated, and have answered simply: eat us and praise the Lord."
Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870)

Below...when we were smaller...and weren't yet fans of mysterious fungi, fine vino and obscure poetry...

Red Carpet?? Try Leopard Print, Grrrr...or maybe Blue Velvet, Baby...no, not the movie, but boy that Isabella Rossellini sure is hot stuff. Or was that Bobby Vinton's song???She wore Blue Velvet, la la la...sorry...that's so WAYYYY BEFORE MY TIME, DUDES!

But we digress...just a few "portraitures" of us getting older and more debonnaire...see us further below when we were just little tykes. Growin' up and dreamin' big of bein' just like handsome Daddy Roy!

One thing we hear from potential customers over and over is...I don't want to show my dog, I just want a quality pet. Here is our reply: As you can see from our site, our South Branch goldens can be shown if a customer desires, however, our main goal is to provide the best golden pet possible to our customer. This is one reason the "titled" Champion goldens produce such nice puppies. They have been proven compliant in the show ring, of superior intelligence, stature and in excellent health. This results in a golden puppy of a more "perfect pet, excellent disposition and trainable" variety than those goldens specifically bred to hunt, for example. 

Regarding health and well being of our South Branch puppies: Our goal as golden retriever breeders is to supply our customers with a puppy in excellent health at pick up. Our puppies are well socialized and worked/played with and handled every day. They get lots of love before they leave South Branch. They come partially potty trained and are used to going outside to romp, play and, of course, eliminate, prior to pickup. Our breeding concentrates on providing our customers golden pups with an excellent temperament; sound genetics, well nourished body and soul and with a clean bill of health, checked direct by our favorite vet, Dr. Al of We Care Animal Hospital. Both South Branch golden parents are always on site, and you can see from our testimonials that we have very satisfied customers. Also, we guarantee our puppies and provide new owners with health, feeding and training recommendations at time of pick up. That is our responsibility. Once the pup leaves South Branch, we have to rely on the new family to provide the love, nurturing, support, proper diet, exercise and socialization required to produce a healthy, well-tempered adult golden. Still, we do our very best to prepare our families with the necessary knowledge to be successful in this role. We also recommend reading, “I just got a puppy, what do I do?” by Matthew Margolis, which is among many excellent books available on training and preparing your household for a puppy. I just got a puppy is a quick and easy read for the entire family. Consistency is key!! A well-behaved golden who knows and understands basic commands is the happiest pet, and a true joy to be around.

All the puppies pictured below from our last litter during Winter 2008-2009 have gone to their new homes and are shown for reference only:)
God bless and many thanks to our South Branch families and their goldens!
Please contact us for upcoming litter and reservation information at southbranchgoldens@yahoo.com.

A Prayer of Thanks...

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
