x Thunderstruck Shoot to Thrill/Thunderstruck It's A Long
Way to the Top QA2 MH WCX
Field-Bred Puppies--Hunt Tests, Agility, SAR, Tracking, Hunting,
Service Dogs, and Pets--
with ultrasound!! Puppies expected
July 14th and going home September 1st. All
puppies will be CLEAR for DNA Golden Retriever panel:
Ichthyosis, prcd-PRA, NCL, etc.
This is a multiple-sire
litter!! Because this is Archer's first litter, and he
was a little hesitant to breed, Tina has been bred
to Archer and Angus both. We will DNA test all the puppies
for parentage. When we have done multile sire litters
in the past, the puppies have all been from one sire,
not a mix. Either matchup will be excellent and is similar
These puppies will
be extremely suitable for
many venues!! They will be extremely fun to watch hunt
or compete. Tina, Angus, and Archer all go hard, love
retrieving, and love people. We are very excited for this
litter as we feel it will produce puppies that competitive
people will love to own and train, but they will definitely
be a great fit for hunting homes that want a hard-driving
hunting dog. All dogs are excellent in the house! These
puppies will be dk gold (reddish) in color and weigh approximately
50-70 lbs. as adults.

Archer [Thunderstruck Like None
Otter QA2 MH WCX OS x Pendragon's Little Red Monster QA2
MH] is a very talented young dog. He will be running Senior/Master
Hunt Tests and Qualifyings this summer. We are excited
for his career, as we feel he has gotten a ton of talent
and personality from his parents. We are excited for his
career as a Hunt Test/Field Trial/hunting dog!!
Angus [Thunderstruck Like None
Otter QA2 MH WCX OS x Topbrass Forget the Rest QA2 MH
WCX OD] is an great performance dog: extremely stylish,
birdy, and athletic. He is QA2 (Qualified All Age), earned
a JAM in a 65 dog all-breed Open, and has a WCX title.
He is a Master Hunter that qualified for both 2020 and
2021 Master Nationals. He has the personality that makes
him a favorite around the house and training grounds just
like Otter, his sire! He absolutely loves retrieving and
birds! He shows excellent potential--very birdy, hard-driving,
biddable, obedient, water crazy, and quick learning. He
is currently training/competing in hunt tests and field
trials. His siblings and offspring are doing extremely
well in a variety of venues--field trials, hunt tests,
agility, obedience, tracking, hunting, etc. He has excellent
structure and is a beauty of a Golden! We are excited
for his future as an All-Age dog!
Tina [Semper Cooper's Mulligan MH
QA2 *** CCA x Stoneflys Madison River WCX] makes us smile
every day!! She is just a great little retriever with a
wonderful personality! Tina is extremely athletic and agile.
She is 50 lbs and is a ball of energy when training, but
has a great offswitch for the house and kennel. Tina is
currently running hunt tests and is 3/3 in Junior Hunter.
We will finish her Junior Hunter title this summer!
Because Tina and Archer are
talented and have drive, this litter will be great for hunting
homes, agility, hunt tests, SAR, etc. They should perform
well in any venue. Both Tina and Archer go hard and are extremely
athletic! These pups should be all muscle and drive with a
great on/off switch.

Puppy Starter Kit
The puppy price is $3800
(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. 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.
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 receive 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 that
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.
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
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, PRA 2, NCL, Ichthyosis
and Thyroid clearances
and Elbow clearances
