Crossfire Retrievers - Breeding Top Quality Golden Retrievers
Shooter , my very own first Golden. She is the mother to both Rigby and
Shelby. Born in 2006 and will be turning 11 this Dec. 2017. She is the best
companion I could have ever hoped for. Her puppies have gone on to be
therapy dogs, hunting partners, and companions. Shooter made it out this fall
(2017) for a day of pheasant hunting. She still knows how to use that nose!
She is a great huntress, extremely birdie, and a very loyal companion.
Rigby has had 2 litters. I'm very proud of her and she has proven to be a great
hunter. Tons of drive to retrieve waterfowl or upland birds. You know when
she catches the sent of a bird by how excited she gets and the wag of her tail. I
kept her from an Old Oaks Highland Hunter breeding specifically because
Hunter's an outcross from most of the golden retrievers in the USA. This helps
to prevent much of the line breeding that is seen when digging through
pedigrees. I hope to find a few more outcross studs to breed with that have
proven themselves in one skill or another as I continue my breeding program.
Rigby's pups have gone on to competing and hunting homes and as
Shelby is the newest member to Crossfire and has currently had her first litter. She is owned by Ben and Kristin Hedtke. Shooter produced multiple litters with Rippling Run Flodens Teutorix "T-rex". I have recieved lots of positive feedback from the litters. I am very happy that Ben chose to keep Shelby. She is a half sister to Rigby. Shelby is a family companion with great LOVE for kids. She is gentle and patient. When on the farm I can watch her put her hunting instincts to use as she finds the chickens and herds them back to the coop. Floden's Scout of honor is a full brother.
Current Dog: Rigby, Shooter & Shelby
Was the first golden my parents purchased. Passed away before I had any memories of her.
Running Moonshine (1988-1999) First Golden I grew up raising litters out of. She lived to the rip old age of 13 before being put down do to seizures. To the right, is Dillon, one of Moonshines off spring.
Chasin Moonshine (1995-2007) Out of Moonshine's last litter. Died quietly at home in her sleep. We were not able to keep a puppy from Chase. Chase is the light golden. Next to her is Shooter as a puppy
