Golden Star Puppy Testimonials
Dog-tor Rusty is in: Golden retriever helps patients through sickness, owner through loss
When Donna Donovan enters WakeMed Hospital in Cary, she's already got a doctor by her side.
Found my best friend at Golden Star in 2020 and I truly wouldn’t change anything for the world. If and when we do get Charlotte a sibling, it will be from Golden Star!
The best commitment I've ever made was a Golden Star puppy. Our sweet Hudson (aka Monte) has grown into the sweetest 90-pound golden we have ever had. He is the pet of the entire neighborhood. I absolutely recommend this family of breeders.
Golden Star Family Puppies is operated by a very nice family and EVERYTHING that I saw was totally immaculately maintained. When I arrived for my puppy, all the litter was obviously recently bathed and playing together. They all were very clearly happy, healthy, and well socialized! I could not possibly be happier with my Parker! He is healthy, well adjusted, and AMAZING!!!
We got our Watson from Golden Star Family Puppies! He is 3 now and the best dog I have ever met!!! We just love him!!!!
June is our Golden Star girl and she is nothing short of amazing. 4 years old. She is our daughters best friend and the most loving, loyal companion. We constantly get compliments on how beautiful, obedient and kind she is.
We got our Marleigh Jane Francesca (was once Joy) from Golden Star February 2022. She is literally the best dog we’ve ever had, such a great temperament. She’s my fluffy best friend/shadow If we ever get another, it’ll definitely be from Golden Star!
We got Murphey at 8 weeks old from Golden Star and he is the sweetest, biggest, kindest long haired-goofy Doodle and so gentle! Absolutely recommend Golden Star. Murphey has had zero problems and is a now healthy 2 year old man! We love him dearly!
Found our beautiful Brandy ((Angel 2021) Bear and Penny at Golden Star Family Puppies. She’s a perfect companion and friend. Loves everyone, and gives the best hugs and snuggles. So glad we found her. Thanks, Owen!
Ok! Our two Irish Goldens are truly some of the most well-behaved puppies we have ever seen. They are so easy to teach and love us as their owners already. They are 4 months old and already crate trained, house trained, and don't jump up for their food. The transition from breeder to home was very smooth and would highly recommend this breed of dog and golden star puppies!
I bought my sweet Stormie (Standard Aussiedoodle) from Goldenstar Family Puppies. I had the best experience with them. Nowadays, it’s hard to know places you can trust. This is definitely a place you can trust buying your new fur baby from! They came up in a great home and were loved the second they came into the world. I HIGHLY recommend the training as well. Samantha, the trainer, did an amazing job! Stormie went through 4 weeks of training and it is AMAZING being able to take her outside to use the bathroom and she knows what to do. And she knows basic commands and even when she does the normal puppy biting/chewing, she knows what “no” means and listens immediately. Michelle was very responsive and extremely helpful! I had been talking with her for a few months before the right litter came along and she was very patient and helpful through the whole process! I couldn’t be happier with this place! Thank you so much for my amazing Fur baby!
Between my husband and myself we have owned so many dogs. This process was the easiest yet. Everyone is super responsive and really took their time to answer all my questions. There was absolutely 0 pressure to purchase a puppy. We went with 4 weeks of training, and this was the best choice we could have made! Every week we received pictures, a video and call/texts of our puppy, and it really helped our kids to bond with him even before he arrived. Most importantly it was so nice to have the puppy arrive crate trained and after the first 3 days of him getting acclimated to us, he now sleeps until 7:30. He is super socialized with humans and other dogs (we have a beagle). We also opted for ground transportation, which was super easy and convenient. I cannot say enough good things about our new puppy and the whole Golden Start Family Puppies family. Everyone is super kind, patient, and I feel they really care about the puppies.
Bailey "St. Berdoodle"
We took Bailey for her last set of shots yesterday. The Dr. said she is a very healthy puppy,weighing 40 lbs. already. They expect her to be between 85 and 90 lbs. I wonder how big she will end up. She is the easiest puppy I have had. She brings us many days of fun and unconditional love. We are so happy we made this decision. Please thank Owen again for us!!.
Kate "Golden Retriever"
I just wanted to send you an update on Kate from Sandy x Turbo. She just turned 2 in December and we are incredibly happy with her! She has been a wonderful, well-rounded dog with a perfect temperament and no health issues whatsoever.
I am currently doing scent work and agility with her, and hope to compete with AKC in the near future! She loves to learn!
We took her on her first “big girl” camping and hiking trip to Asheville, NC over the weekend and she did amazing. Here are a few photos of her
Thanks again for giving us such an amazing dog!
Hi Michelle! I got my puppy back in June from the April 26th litter, and just wanted you to say thank you again. We named him Gibbs (from NCIS) and he has brought us so much joy. These were the day he turned 5 months. Just wanted to reach out and let you guys know we're so thankful! He loves going to the gym with us, hence the gym picks. But he is Super social & loves kids. He is just so so so good. I cannot say enough. Y'all truly blessed us!

Bo "Golden Retriever"
Wanted to share this with you. Bo found the carrot bed and brings them to door for me to wash it off he loves carrots.
Chance "Golden Retriever"
River "Golden Retriever"
Thank you so much for letting us come to your farm and pick out a beautiful puppy. We name him Chance because it was by chance that we found your website. He is Perfect, we love him and our experience coming to the farm. There is nothing more welcoming than a porch full of puppies. The hardest part was just picking one. Chance has made friends with our cat and they play with each other and take naps together. Chance is part of our family. Thank you so much.

Hi! This is Heather R. My son & I welcomed (Yeti on your website), who is now named River to our family this past July. He was born May 4, 2018. I just wanted to let you know what great love & joy this little pup has brought to our family! He makes my heart hurt in the very best way! :) My family and I have owned several Goldens through the years, but I can say that River has the very best disposition and personality of all the Golden's we owened. I also wanted to thank you for being such a caring breeder and for raising the very best golden retrievers! I would LOVE to come right back and grab another! :) My brother and his family actually purchased a female, now named Sage, from you. Sage was born about a month and a half after River. Thank you again for the wonderful work you are doing with these babies! We are in complete and total love with these fur babies! We will continue to refer you to all our friends and family who are interested in the very best pups!
This is Rusty's new mommy Mariana. I just wanted to reach out and thank you! The experience was heaven sent. From the minute we met Owen and his beautiful family the puppy came to greet us it's pure joy. It was very important for me to get our pup from birth. Knowing the wonderful family he came from and how much love he has already received by this great family only makes me want to give him more of an amazing life. Maxwell Oliver (his new name) is so loved already. Forever greatful.
Maxwell "Golden Retriever"
Hello, Just want to share some photos of Cookie. We got her in October 2018 and she has been the best. She is beautiful, smart ,very obedient to commands, loving, playful and so much fun. The facility is top notch and the puppies are imprinted to adults and children from birth. Doodles are the best. The Lowe Family
The Carter family and Their Goldens
I hope you and your family are doing well. We love having the puppies. Here are a couple pics. Sorry for the random soccer pic that is in the feed. The dogs have loved going to all the soccer games with us and have become team mascots. Gingers favorite fetch toy has become a small soccer ball. This is the feed with my favorite picture of the 2 carrying a stick in their mouth. They are growing up so quickly.
