be great field-bred puppies that are
going to have a lot of go!! These puppies
should be extremely suitable for
any venue!! Misty and Dixon possess
wonderful Golden temperaments and do well
competitively; thus, this is a perfect litter
for anyone looking for that special Golden
to be part of your home but still wanting
an extremely trainable and competitive dog.
We are very excited for this breeding as
we feel it has the best of everything. These
puppies will be gold to dark gold (red)
in color and weigh approximately 65-70 lbs.
Dixon [Topbrass Hawks
Blackhawk *** WC x Thistle Rocks Storm Warning Maurene MH
*** WCX] is a blast to train and handle. He goes extremely
hard and is a thinker and problem solver. It is just fun
to watch him work factors out as he goes for a mark. He
has excellent drive,desire, and birdiness! In just 5 months
during the spring/summer of 2017 as he just was turning
two years old, he earned his Senior Hunter title and 2 Master
Hunter passes, earned 4 Derby points, and earned JAMs in
2 Qualifying All-Age stakes!! He earned his first Derby
JAM at 13 months old. We look forward to finishing his Master
Hunter title and continuing with Qualifying All-Age stakes.
He loves birds, has a great water entry, and loves people.
He is on a faster track to success than even Forman and
Otter were at his age!! He will be one to watch in the future.
Misty [FC Firemark's Rackem and
Stackem Casey x MHR Firemark Serendipity MH CDX CCA NA
NAJ NF CGC] is a fun-loving Golden who loves to retrieve
and is one of our main hunting dogs. She earned her Master
Hunter title. She definitely has that Golden personality
that we expect in our dogs, and her personality makes
her easy to handle when on the line in competition or
hunting. She is extremely athletic with a medium build
and an easy-to-care-for field coat. A beautiful Golden!!
Her pups from past litters have been very trainable, birdy,
watery while also being great pets.
We expect these puppies to
be intense retrievers, especially in the water; great markers;
and exceptional hunting companions, while still being extremely
trainable, sociable, and loving. Both Misty and Dixon are
calm and steady while trialing and testing or hunting, but
posseses strong desire and drive.
All puppies come
with the following:
neurological stimulation from 3 to 16 days
Socialization from 5 to 7 weeks

The puppy price
is $2900 (plus Minnesota and county sales
tax) and reflects the quality of breeding; the resources
we have invested in training, trialing, and testing
our dogs; our continual attention to health clearances;
and improvement of our breeding stock. We strive for
quality--carefully selecting our breedings. We will
do our best to steer you to the breeding that will
best meet your needs; our breedings are geared towards
all-purpose dogs, but because of the various characteristics
and genetics of our dogs, some of our breedings may
lend themselves to being extremely strong field trial
litters.We require a deposit of $300
to reserve puppies in advance of whelping or after
litter is born to ensure you are on the final list.
Puppies are ready to go home at
7 weeks. The puppies we sell are AKC registered
with the "Thunderstruck" prefix. Puppies
are sold under limited registration until buyers
have proof of health clearances recommended by the
Golden Retriever Club of America for hip, elbow,
heart, and eyes, at which time full registration
will be transferred at no additional cost from Thunderstruck
Retrievers--we just want healthy offspring to be
produced! See puppy warranty link for more information.
Our puppies are carefully raised: receiving
neurological stimulation, well-balanced socialization,
and exposure to birds and crates. They are individually
stimulated daily from 3-16 days. As they grow they will
be problem-solving, playing, interacting with people
of all ages, exercising, and beginning retrieving when
ready. We are true believers of the benefits of early
individual stimulation and socialization to maximize
These puppies will act
as if they have been part of your home from the moment
they transition from our home to yours. Pups experiencing
these early benefits grow into mature, well-adjusted adult
dogs. Before leaving Thunderstruck Retrievers, we do final
testing and evaluating of our puppies using behavioral
methods to best determine which puppies match with which
prospective homes and to make final puppy placements.
We feel strongly about placing puppies
in homes that best match their behaviors, personalities,
and potential rather than having a "pick of the
litter" system. Because of the stimulation, socialization,
and exposure all of our puppies recieve from an early
age, starting at Day 3, all puppies are highly desirable.
We place puppies at approximately 6 1/2 weeks of age
after observations and Puppy Aptitude Testing that analyzes
areas such as retrieving, sensitivity, dominance, etc.;
thus, it is important for clients to fill out the puppy
application in its entirety and give us as much information
as you can. We want you to be happy with the puppy we
place in your home.
Choosing the right puppy
for you is an important decision that lasts the life time
of the dog and we are available to ensure you have the
information you need to make that choice. We would like
to give you as much information as possible and answer
any questions you have. You may also fill out and submit
a puppy application form. Another useful reference in
your choice is the Golden
Retriever Club of America.

We are here to ensure
that you receive the highest quality puppy with the
healthiest start possible. Not only have we bought our
own dogs out of proven stock, but we have continued
that tradition by actively training our dogs and competing/testing/hunting
We are active constantly
in social, as well as working situations, with all of
our dogs, so we are able to constantly assess their
personalities and abilities. We use this knowledge when
breeding, rather than just their pedigrees. We have
a limited number of litters from each of our females
because our dogs are not just used for breeding.
We have benefitted from breeders before
us that have developed methods which have sent puppies
to our home that immediately fit into our family and
are eager to learn. Because we have had this experience
first hand, we value that when sending a puppy to
your home. When a confident, friendly, lovable, crazy-to-retrieve
puppy arrives the first day and acts like it has never
known anything different, it is an amazing experience!
You will know that it has the start it needs to become
a well-adjusted adult dog that you can enjoy for years.
We will make sure your
puppy has socialization every day, has been introduced
to birds and retrieving, and learns how to play. We
want it to be ready to become a part of your family.
We also know the value of health clearances and DNA
testing. Our puppy warranty is our guarantee that you
will have a healthy companion. We have a 26-month guarantee
(hip, elbow, eye, and cardiac) since some of the final
clearances can not be done until 2 years of age.
For your own reference,
these are the testing ages:
Any age--Eye clearances
and DNA testing prcd-PRA, PRA1, Ichthyosis
and Thyroid clearances
and Elbow dysplasia
