About the Name:
Salvia Dorata is an Italian name meaning golden sage. Toffee's father, Chance, an Italian born dog, has won multiple UK/EUR awards and is a field trial champion. Toffee's mother, Flo, a UK born working female, lives on a beautiful farm in Wales.
Born near the coastal town of Aberystwyth, Toffee journeyed from Heathrow to LAX, then through the night to the Rocky Mountains. She arrived in the USA in 2020 with open eyes and a big heart. Her endearing spirit has stolen the love of our family. Especially Kristen. She is a picture of grace, beauty and functional working golden. Her attitude is pure joy and the best "work with you" golden I've ever owned. Rarely out of our sight she walks the streets of our town at sunrise, a cool summer swim in the Bear River and a fall upland game hunt with the sound of roosters crowing in the distance.
With big, dark eyes, broad head, jet black pigment and an athletic conformation I didn't think possible, she is a Welsh gem among our granite stones and sagebrush. I have long wanted a purebred UK born working golden. The genesis of the breed. We are extremely fortunate and deeply appreciative to Lanlwyd (Anne Williams) for allowing Toffee to be a part of our life.
Show me the Scotsman who doesnt’ love the thistle. Show me the Englishman who doesn’t love the rose. Show me the true blooded Aggie from Utah Who doesn’t love the spot where the sagebrush grows!
More about Chance, Toffee's father
One of two golden retriever Field Trial Champions and Champions during the 2019/20 Season.
Competed in a total of 8 trials, he gained 7 awards, from novice to F.T.C.H in one season at the age of two years. At the 2019 International Gundog League (IGL) Retriever Championship, he was one of only four golden retrievers of the 64 dogs that qualified, and the youngest dog to run. Despite being only two years old, he received a Diploma of Merit and was also awarded with Guns' Choice. He has again qualified for the 2021 IGL. An incredible feat.
