My name is Kelly Spivey and we are located in Dothan, Alabama. I receive phone calls and emails daily with inquires for "white golden retrievers" and we do not breed "white golden retrievers". Our dogs look white at times but they are actually light cream according to the color standard. The UK (European) Kennel Club standard for the golden retriever is cream to dark gold. If you take the time to research the European lineages you will find beautiful tones from light cream to dark golden. Here are a few examples listed below just click on the links.

In the US, these dogs are often mislabeled English Golden Retrievers, British Golden Retrievers, English Cream Golden Retrievers and even Rare White Golden Retrievers. In truth, in every country these dogs are simply golden retrievers and nothing more. All of our dogs are imported from Europe and considered "English Type Golden Retrievers". To understand where the term "English Golden Retriever" came from please read this article by Bev Brown by clicking on the link below.

If I do not have a puppy available and you don't want to wait for my next litter, I will be glad to help you with your search or just answer any questions you may have. I have helped several families with their search and I certainly do not mind doing so.
Please visit our links & info page for more information on the history of the Golden Retriever to give you a better idea of where these magnificent dogs come from.
