Golden Retrievers of Foxwater Farm
Hi! I'm Mary
I'm a breeder of
For my husband and me, golden's have been near and dear to our hearts since 1977 and we've been breeding them since 1980.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR FAMILY
We are a Christian family residing in central Ohio. We were married in
1973, our first daughter was born in 1974 and our second in 1977. That
same year we began our search for a family dog. In the age before the
internet, we conducted our search through conversations with other
dog owners and veterinarians; as well as researching AKC literature on
different dog breeds. We were looking for a laid-back, easily trainable, social dog that would be good with small children. The Golden Retriever appeared to be the perfect choice. We visited breeders and soon came home with our very first fluffy furry puppy, a Golden Retriever we named Joshua. The Golden Retriever turned out to be the most perfect choice! Since that day we have always had Goldens in our life.
As our family grew so did our family of Golden Retrievers. For the last 40 years we have been advocates for this breed and its beauty inside and out. We actively work to create the healthiest genetic line of Golden Retriever.
Foxwater Farm is located just outside of London, Ohio. Our picturesque 20-acre property is bordered by Oak Run and overlooks a small pond that has been great for fishing. The property also houses multiple mini tree orchards, an old Christmas tree farm, and seasonal gardens.
We are so blessed to have dogs from different parts of the world in our current Golden Retriever family lines. We continue to keep a healthy line of dogs that are easily trainable as therapy dogs, capable of passing the Canine Good Citizen programs with ease and proven competitive in dog competitions such as Agility, Disc, Rally and Obedience.
Additionally, we are proud to announce that one of our puppies has become an International Champion in the competition ring. He also earned a First Place and Best of Show as a 1 1/2 year old puppy, beating much older males.
