Litter Highlights
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:

Individual neurological stimulation from 3 to 16 days Dew claws removed
Individual Socialization from 5 to 7 weeks Wormed
Written Health Guarantee DHAPP vaccination
AKC Trovan Microchipped AKC Litter Registration
Veterinarian Examination Purina Puppy Starter Kit
Price and Deposit
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.

Puppy Buyer Information

Our puppies are carefully raised: receiving early 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 puppy potential.


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.
Why buy a Thunderstruck puppy????
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 with them.
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
12 months--Cardiac and Thyroid clearances
24 months--Hip and Elbow dysplasia
