Thistledown Farm's Sweet Little Sheila

Sheila

"Sweet little Sheila, you'll know her if you see her..." as the old Buddy Holly song goes. Our newest Lady, Sheila, joins us from a farm in southern Ohio.

She is a granddaughter of our own J. J. Sheila's gorgeous coat, blocky head shape, and extra dark pigment make her a real show-stopper! She truly is beautiful. In addition to her good looks, she has a gentle, affectionate, laid-back personality. She did an amazing job with her first litter, and was so proud of her babies!

Mercedes is one of two beautiful girls we kept from our final litter between our amazing Ruby and longtime stud, J.J. Those two produced some of our most fantastic pups ever, and we wanted to continue their legacy into our future generations.

Mercedes is a silly, active, fun-loving pup. We are enjoying watching her grow up, and excited to see how she turns out. Stay tuned for more on Mercedes as we complete her health testing and update her photos!

Audi is one of two beautiful girls we kept from our final litter between our amazing Ruby and longtime stud, J.J. Those two produced some of our most fantastic pups ever, and we wanted to continue their legacy into our future generations.

Audi reminds me so much of her mom, and already has a regal grace about her!  She is still an active, affectionate pup, though. We are enjoying watching her grow up, and excited to see how she turns out. Stay tuned for more on Audi as we complete her health testing and update her photos!

Thistledown Farm's Tessa

Tessa

Tessa is intelligent, thoughtful and deliberate. She likes a good belly rub as well as the next Golden, but she isn't in your face for attention. Affectionate, calm and fairly serious, Tessa is a clever girl. Tessa gets along well with everyone, but is independent and content to explore on her own.

She is also petite, but still has great bone structure and a broad head. For families who want a pup with the typical "English" look, but prefer a smaller dog, Tessa is your girl. She only weighs about 60 pounds! She has a smooth,silky, low shedding coat.

Lizzy & Tessa

These fun pictures illustrate the difference in personalities between Tessa, on the left, and Lizzy, on the right. Lizzy is just begging for attention and letting it all hang out, while you can sense Tessa thinking "Really, Lizzy?" and rolling her eyes

 

Thistledown Farm's Oh Elizabeth

Lizzy

Lizzy is the quintessential party girl. An outgoing, comical, attention hog! She has loads of confidence, knows no strangers, and loooooves everyone. Lizzy is a big, strong, athletic girl.

She reminds me so much of her dad, J.J., right down to the tongue lolling out the side of her mouth.  She has a spectacular coat, and lots of it, but has tested genetically as a "low" shedder! Lizzy is a great choice for families who want puppies that are big and blocky with assertive, happy-go-lucky personalities.

Thistledown Farm's Lady Emma

Emma Best Stand-min thistledown farms

Emma

Emma may just be the most laid-back Golden I have ever met. She wants to hang out with us when the other dogs go out for "special" attention, so she'll pretend to be asleep until they all pile out the door and then pop up with a big smile on her face.

She loves to play fetch and is quite a swimmer. Her gorgeous, blocky head and muscular build often cause visitors to mistake her for a male, but she is a gentle soul. We can't wait to see Emma as a mom, she is such a lover, we know she will adore her babies!
