2021 puppies

We are now reviewing our waiting list and collecting down-payments. 

To get on the list for Molly's litter of purebred golden retrievers, please fill out the form below and we will keep in touch and contact you. At that time, a deposit will be required to hold the puppy. The remaining balance will be due at time of pickup. 

Adoption Policy

We feel that the correct placement of our puppies is important. We want to be assured that Molly's puppies are best suited to you and your home environment. We therefore reserve the right to refuse any adoption.

Puppies will be lovingly nurtured by our family and Molly. They will receive a lot of socialization. They will have their DAP vaccination and two de-wormings. Starting at about 6 weeks, the puppies learn some good life lessons from mom. For this reason, we recommend the puppies leave at 8 weeks (we do not let puppies go before 7 weeks).

Our litters are AKC registered as a Limited Registration (non-breeding). You will receive some papers to finalize your puppy's registration if you wish. All of our puppies must be spayed or neutered, unless otherwise agreed upon.

Please fill out the ADOPTION FORM to be added to our list. 

For more information, text, call, or email, Dennis Ryckman, 605-222-7713, dennis@factor360.com

She loves attention, is a great family dog, and comes from a strong hunting background. Koda is a darker color. He has a mild manner and is an excellent hunting dog. His picture was after a haircut.
