Meet the parents here at Golden Light. Below you can view descriptions of their personalities, health testing results & photos on each of them. Most of the dogs below live in Guardian homes which gives them their own loving family where they can be the center of attention. They come here to have their puppies & then go back to their guardian for about a year. When they retire they stay with their guardian family for retirement. It is a great way to make sure every dog gets lots of love & affection.


Meet Stella

Stella is a Berner girl with a kind & loving personality. She is 90 lbs & has great conformation, a beautiful silky coat & expressive brown eyes. This beautiful girl is quite the love bug. Her guardians are a family with kiddos that she adores & is very bonded too. Stella's favorite move is to walk halfway between your legs so she can get her butt scratched.

She loves people & although she is patient & waits her turn for pets once she gets up on the bed or couch she will stay cuddled up for hours when I have time. She is very good with the other dogs - not dominant or pushy. Her & Westley are especially good friends & love sitting on the couch together etc. She does great with kiddos & loves meeting people. Holly isn’t much of a barker & usually watches through the window waiting for me to get through the door & give her love.
