We are John and Sharon Henegar and we would like to welcome you to Magical Goldens. We take pride in raising AKC registered English Cream Golden Retrievers and F1 & F1b Goldendoodles. We are hobbyist breeders, which simply means that we have a true passion and love for the breed and everything involved in the process of caring for and raising these gorgeous puppies and their parents. Prior to becoming a breeder myself, I (Sharon) have helped in my family's dog breeding business for 8 years loving every minute of working with, snuggling, and cuddling the sweet puppies and their parents. Our youngest daughter had always loved Golden Retrievers, although we had never had one of our own. She worked hard, doing any odd job she could and saved every penny, until she could adopt her very own puppy! Little did we know that the whole family would be smitten! From the first time she wrapped her paws around my little girl's arm as if to say, "I'm the one you want!" she had our hearts. I have had many pets in my lifetime, but never has one captured my love like these sweet Goldens. We all fell in love with the breed, and thus began our mission of sharing with you, the joy of owning one of these magical creatures. We are so blessed and excited to pass on our passion and love for this breed of dog to those of you who choose to make one of our precious puppies your lifelong companion.
We are located in the mountain country of Prim, Arkansas, near the beautiful Greers Ferry Lake. Here our dogs are privileged to hike nearby trails with us, swim in lakes, rivers, and our pond, chase squirrels and deer, befriend our cats, and finally curl up on the rug for a much needed nap. There is always plenty of adventure and excitement to awaken their senses and stimulate their minds.
We at Magical Goldens feel strongly about continuing the legacy of the Golden Retriever. We have carefully chosen quality Goldens with sweet temperaments and impressive Champion pedigrees for our breeding program. We do our very best to provide you with healthy puppies by making sure all of our dams and sires are health tested through Pennhip or OFA and Embark or Wisdom Panel's Optimal Selection, and are clear of all diseases. Our Goldens are true to the conformation of the breed with beautiful structure, thick muzzles and blocky heads. Our dogs are family and we earnestly strive to produce the healthiest and happiest of Golden Retriever puppies starting from birth and continuing as long as they are in our care. At the heart of our breeding program is the desire to offer high quality service and therapy dogs. We have personally saw the benefits these dogs are to so many people! We raise our puppies with Puppy Culture which gives them a HUGE step up when preparing them for their future. Starting at 3 days old we utilize the Bio Sensor program for Early Neurological Stimulation, also known as the "Super Dog" program. At 10 weeks potential service dogs can be assessed by a professional service dog trainer. One of the many benefits of being a small breeder is that we are able to give our moms and their puppies the one on one time and attention that they need to make them the loving companion that you deserve. Our puppies are highly trainable and will be introduced to beginning crate and leash training starting at 6 weeks old along with other age appropriate basic obedience skills. We realize that you have many options when choosing your furever friend, therefore we will do our best to help you select the one that is right for your family. We feel sure that you will find the perfect match in one of our puppies!
