Description

Here at Sunshine Acres, we specialize in raising quality Golden Irish hybrid puppies, which are also sometimes referred to as Irish Retrievers. We have focused on this wonderful cross so that we can offer you one of the best Golden Irish puppies you can find. Sunshine Acres is family owned and family run. We are located in northwest Indiana about halfway between Chicago and Indianapolis just off I-65, near Wolcott. If you have any questions about our puppies, feel free to email us at dlwagenbach@gmail.com.

The Sunshine Acres Golden Irish is socialized in a family setting following techniques taught by Jan Fennell, The Dog Listener. Our mission is to provide a healthy, intelligent, sweet-natured puppy that is supreme at making families laugh together and give individuals devotion and companionship.

Some may ask why we have chosen to breed a Golden Retriever, Irish Setter hybrid (cross) puppy. This is why:

Golden Retrievers have been noted as one of the most gentle family dog breeds. For years, they have been a popular choice for those with young children, those that are older, and everyone in between. Their popularity has been demonstrated by many breeders who cross their breeds with the Golden, i.e. Irish-Golden, Golden-Lab, Golden-etc. Many want to capture that sweet nature.

GENETIC HEALTH, A BIG PLUS:
The genetic health of the Golden has suffered somewhat over the years. There are two ways to alleviate this condition which is caused by inbreeding. First, testing for known genetic issues and using purebred parents that pass these tests to produce future generations of healthy Golden Retrievers. Second, is to outcross to similar breeds (similar breeds help retain more Golden characteristics) in an attempt to reduce the genetic mutations that cause genetic disease. For example, the Golden is plagued with poor hips which leads to Canine Hip Displasia. The Irish has a mild susceptibility to poor hips. By crossing these two breeds, one can expect puppies with healthier hips. The very best combination to producing healthy puppies is to test for common diseases and outcrossing to another breed.

Same Cute with Less Hair Maintenance and Shedding-
At Sunshine Acres, we have crossed the Irish to the Golden to produce what we believe is an outstanding outcross. The Irish breed has moderate energy levels, are loyal, friendly, and happy. The Golden is gentle, friendly, moderate to low energy levels, and smart. The Irish coat is red, majestic, beautiful. The Golden coat is thick, heavy shedding, great color tones. Mix the two breeds together and you end up with a dog that is healthy, has a great personality, is even tempered, and sheds less than the Golden. Just what we were looking for:)
