We chose this breeding to produce outstanding field-bred puppies that will have high desire and a lot of go!! Rosie and Jessie are both hard-going retrievers that love the game! Rosie is out of our Bailey x Otter, so this is going to be a great combination of talent, drive, and trainability. She was qualified for 2020 Master National and is close to be Qualified for the 2021 Master National. Jessie has some excellent field lines behind him and his dam is a Field Champion--not many Golden females earn that title!!

These puppies should be extremely suitable for many venues!! They will be extremely eager and talented. Rosie and Jessie both go hard and do well competively. Because of the strong desire and drive that they both have, we are very excited for this litter as we feel it will produce puppies that competitive people will love to own and train, but will definitely be a great fit for hunting/pet homes that want a talented hunting dog with an on/off switch. These puppies will be gold to dark gold (red) in color and weigh approximately 55-65 lbs. as adults.

This will be a great litter for anyone wanting a dog with a lot of go!!

Litter Highlights

Jessie [Topbrass Montana Lonesome Dove *** OS x FC Ruby Redfish Mo's Mountain Gem WCX OD] is a great performance dog with exceptional marking ability. "Jessie has always been the dog of ours that consistently exceeds our expectations. He is as fast and stylish as any retriever and is a good citizen. First and foremost, he wants to please and always gives 110% effort. His all-breed accomplishments include an Amateur win, two 3rd places and an Open Reserve JAM. In hunt tests he passed 6 straight Master tests to give him his Master Hunter title and qualify him for a Master Amateur Invitational. In that test, he didn't put a foot down wrong for 6 challenging series to finish the 2018 Invitational. His Golden Specialty Field Trial record is outstanding and includes a Qualifying win, Amateur win, Open win and an Amateur 2nd and Open 2nd. He's the kind of dog that makes me want to go out every day we train. He's fast, tractable and exciting to watch, coupled with having a great temperament and being a wonderful house dog - a great combination."--Kaye Fuller, Jessie's Owner, Giddings, TX
Rosie [Thunderstruck Like None Otter QA2 MH WCX OD x Saturday Night Goldtop Baileys Comet MH WCX OD] loves to retrieve and goes extremely hard on the way to the bird and on the way back. She always wants more birds! She is a Master Hunter and qualified for the 2020 Master National and needs 3 more passes to qualify for the 2021 Master National. She has earned a Derby 4th place and 2 JAMS and her Working Class Excellent (WCX) title. She also has that Golden personality with an on/off switch we expect of all our Goldens. Her personality makes her fun to handle when on the line in competition or hunting because she has so much desire and drive. She is extremely athletic with a medium build. A wonderful retriever!


These puppies will be intense retrievers; great markers; and exceptional hunting companions, while still being extremely trainable, sociable, and loving. Both Rosie and Jessie are great to handle because they both posses that strong desire and drive.

Individual neurological stimulation from 3 to 16 days Dew claws removed
Individual Socialization from 5 to 7 weeks Wormed

Price and Deposit

Puppy price is $3400 (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.

The puppies we sell are AKC registered with the "Thunderstruck" prefix. Our health guarantee is null and void if the registered name does not begin with the "Thunderstruck" prefix. Puppies are sold under limited registration until buyers have proof of health clearances for hip, elbow, heart, and eyes, at which time full registration will be transferred.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 for hip, elbow, eye, heart. Once born this litter will be tested for Ichthyosis since both parents are carriers.

For your own reference, these are the testing ages:
Any age--Eye clearances and DNA testing prcd-PRA, PRA1, PRA 2, Ichthyosis, NCL
12 months--Cardiac and Thyroid clearances
24 months--Hip and Elbow dysplasia
