Raising AKC Quality Bred Golden Retrievers in Northern New England

About Us

Located 35 minutes north of Portsmouth, NH and 1 1/2 hour north of Boston on a 10-acre farm in Lebanon, Maine, Colonial Goldens is owned by Maryterese Russo.  Our kennel goal is to breed quality golden retrievers, keeping the Golden Retriever Club of America objectives in mind.

We strive to breed athletic goldens that possess the appearance, soundness, temperament, natural ability, and personality that truly reflect the standard of the breed.

Our goldens are versatile:  whether in the show ring, field or in the house, they are willing and ready to please.

We truly love the Golden Retriever breed and do our best to produce top quality puppies.

Colonial Goldens promotes the Holistic rearing of all our dogs.  We require our future puppy owners to follow our vaccination schedule and to use holistic alternatives to pesticides for flea and tick prevention.  All future puppy buyers are to work with a Holistic vet who is a member of the AHVMA (American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association).  The link to the Holistic Veterinarians' Association members in the United States is www.AHVMA.org.  To find a veterinarian in your area, go to their web site and click on "Find a Vet".

When we are not playing with our dogs, we design kitchens.
